MESSE: Fender Creates RoboRock

It's an amp, Jim, but not as we know it.      10/03/01

It’s an amp, Jim, but not as we know it.

OK – here at Sonic we’re not known for our deep love ford all things fretted, but we just had to let you see this. (note – the inevitable foot up on the ‘monitor’) It’s based on tried and trusted amp legend, the Fender Twin (which actually, I’ve got to own up to having a bit of a soft spot for, having lost a chunk of my top-end hearing to it’s dulcet tones) and is rather inventively (ahem) called the ‘Cyber Twin’. Under the hood, it has several different amp and EQ sections, and the clever bit is that when you select different settings, these are physically configured in various arrangements to give you the authentic sounds of classic amps.
Not only that, but the knobs are servo-controlled, and rotate into position rather sexily as you select different presets. Though quite how long they’re gonna last in the sweaty carnage of yer average rock gig, we’re not entirely sure. Cool hardware though. http://www.fender.com/cyber
