Fender has introduced the Machete combo amp. Fender says that, unlike any guitar amp the company has ever created, the Machete is a high-performance, high-gain, high-end tone machine that combines tube tone and highly distinctive cosmetics. They believe thtat discerning guitarists and amp connoisseurs who are both meticulous and adventurous about even the finest details of their sound will find the Machete a formidable new member of the Fender family. Here's all the details in Fender's own words...
The 50-watt, dual-channel Machete combo boasts a completely new high-gain channel unlike anything ever seen on a Fender amp, an extremely clear-sounding clean channel that can be pushed into aggressive rhythm guitar territory, and onboard digital reverb. Its heavily robust enclosure construction and single 12" Celestion® speaker deliver full, rich and pummeling response, with a midrange notch control, adjustable speaker damping for finely tuned performance, XLR output with switchable speaker muting and cabinet emulation, and push-pull pots for bright boost and gain boost on the rhythm channel.
The Machete's distinctive cosmetics include black vinyl covering with inlaid white piping and gray vinyl "steering wheel grip" accents, new Black Silver Strand grille cloth, heavily knurled chrome knobs and all-new corners and hardware. Four-button footswitch and fitted cover included. Pricing and Availability:
