 Fender unveils the next generation of its acclaimed Pro Tube series Super-Sonic guitar amplifier family with the introduction of the Super-Sonic 22 Combo, Super-Sonic 60 Combo, Super-Sonic 60 Head and Super-Sonic 212 Enclosure.
The Super-Sonic concept is built on the idea of professional-level tube performance for guitarists who crave exemplary Fender clean and overdriven tones, along with expressive modern high-gain distortion, all in one no-nonsense amp.

The Super-Sonic 22 Combo, a 22-watt tube combo, delivers versatility with the organic feel and moderate output power of the legendary Deluxe Reverb® amp, making it perfect for most stage and studio applications. The “Vintage” channel delivers pure, unmistakable Fender tone; the awe-inspiring “Burn” channel ignites musical inspiration with overdrive ranging from bluesy to flamethrower. And while the 22-watt, 1x12” Super-Sonic 22 is capable of heavily saturated tube distortion and sustain, it never masks the tonal character of the guitar that’s plugged into it. Offered in classic Black/Silver or the revered 1961 Blonde/Oxblood cosmetic treatment; both versions include ivory “radio” knobs and flowing 1960s script logo.

The new and updated 1x12” Super-Sonic 60 Combo offers those features too, but kicks the power up to 60 watts and is fine-tuned for increased bass response and fatter tone. Its “Vintage” channel takes its cue from two legendary Fender favorites, the Vibrolux® and the Bassman®. It too is offered in classic Black/Silver or 1961 Blonde/Oxblood cosmetic treatment; both with ivory “radio” knobs and flowing 1960s script logo.

The muscle and finesse of the Super-Sonic 60 Combo also comes in a piggyback design in the form of the new Super-Sonic 60 Head and Super-Sonic 212 Enclosure. The former packs the two-channel punch and versatile features of the combo version and is built to drive the latter—a rugged cabinet housing two 12” Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers, with rock-solid Baltic birch-ply construction, oversized baffle board for increased resonance, knurled thumbwheels for securely mounting the Super-Sonic 60 Head, and chrome tilt-back legs for increased projection.
