In the March issue of Premier Guitar, Jordan Wagner puts the new Fender Machete 1×12 combo amplifier through the paces with an extensive review.
“Fender’s sleek 1×12 Machete combo has a lot to offer players who need to move between crystal cleans and bristling gain and favor a more modern voice in general,” he wrote. “The Tuning and Notch controls make the amplifier a much more sensitive and versatile machine. And while the amp can go completely over the top with its overdrive, it’s smooth, harmonically rich, and big at moderate settings.
“And given that all this comes in a beautifully built and killer-looking combo that you can get in the trunk of your car, this is an amp that is arguably much, much more than the sum of its parts.”
