    Simply put, there’s really nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube amplifier. For decades, the tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps a defining and unmistakable voice, as heard on most professional recordings and performances of the past 60 years—the music you’ve known your whole life.

    Classic tweed tone

    Heard on countless recordings since the 1950s, this is the timeless guitar amp tone of the original-era tweed-covered Fender amps and their tweed descendents from every decade since, with remarkable touch sensitivity and sound that really comes alive when cranked.

    Assembled in the U.S.A.

    Jensen® and Fender go way back—to the very beginning, in fact. Jensen® speakers are the traditional Fender speakers, with sweet articulation for clean sounds and cool vintage-style breakup when pushed.

    Solid pine was a traditional Fender amp construction hallmark of the 1950s and ’60s, making for more resonant and more “musical” speaker cabinets. The finger-joined construction used here makes for even stronger and more rugged durability.
