UPDATE: The Mini Deluxe has now sold out. For more Fender deals, have a look at our guide to the 10 best deals still live right now.
You know it, I know it: Fender amps don’t come cheap. But this is Cyber Monday and Fender themselves are offering up this one watt Mini Deluxe for a ridiculous $25 at Fender.com. It's a steal, it's a deal, it's sale-of-the-effing-century: a fun little practice amp that is a great addition to your desk or a great stocking filler for a fellow guitarist.
Fender Mini Deluxe Amp:
was $49.99, now $25
This cute version of Fender’s revered Deluxe guitar amps accurately replicates the classic design, right down to the chickenhead knobs and dogbone handle, all in a fiery Texas Red finish. The Mini Deluxe’s 2” speaker puts out one watt of power, and the amp features controls for Tone, Volume and Gain, plus an onboard headphone output. It's just $25 – a full 50% off the regular price of $49.99 – from Fender themselves. Christmas has come early.
With a one-watt output, delivered via a 2” speaker, the Mini Deluxe is great for all of us who work at home: you can stick it on your desk and plug in while you wait for that meeting to start. And with power coming from a 9V battery (included) – or a 9V power supply – you can hook it on to your strap and keep on playing in the kitchen while you make yourself a coffee.
There’s also a headphone output for silent practice, plus Tone, Volume and Gain controls, if you want a bit of distortion.
With its authentic looks – chrome control panel, chickenhead knobs, dogbone handle, Texas Red finish and classic grille cloth – it's a great stocking filler and desk accessory for any guitarist, as well as an absolute bargain.
