Best friend, 08.01.2019
I am an amateur guitarist mostly playing clean and this is my first tube amp. I had two other non-tube amps before. My goal was to purchase an amp that is:
(i) with single channel all tube circuitry (i.e. reliable and easy to maintain);
(ii) simple to use (i.e. no need to fiddle with a lot of buttons for getting a right clean or slightly overdriven tone);
(iii) takes pedals well;
(iv) easy to be transported; and
(iv) is good for home or bedroom use.
I think that the amp satisfies all of the above and the sound of the Ruby 6V6 tube and 12AY7 preamp tube is very inspiring. The 8 inch Weber speaker sounds great and you should not be afraid of the fact that it is only 8 inch and not a 12 inch speaker. Also, the fact that there is no reverb should not be an off-turner, the amps takes reverb pedals (and also other pedals) really well.
I believe that the price was relatively high for such a small and simple amp, but I do not regret that at all, because it really ticked all the boxes for me and it is a joy to look at and listen to it. Also, the fact that it was made in the Fender Custom Shop at Corona should imply that such an amp can be resold relatively quickly.

Hmmm Hmmm. Hmm Hmm
Brianasaurus!, 21.07.2021
Out of little boxes mighty voices roar.
This is the warmest, dirtiest, bluesiest amp fitted into a small package.
The amp asks you to dial it up higher than you have dared before.
Go for it, it's worth every cent.
Five stars all the way.
Every now and again you come across an incentive to plug in the guitar and go for it. This amp is constantly asking.

This is THE Champ !
Longy, 08.07.2020
An awesome little amp. Tiny, but not boxy at all. Great tone. Yes, there is some hum when idling (even when the volume is on zero), but that's just part of the design, not a fault. They all do it! And it isn't noticeable when playing. I love this little amp. (My other amps are a '66 BF Princeton Reverb, and a '72 SF Deluxe Reverb). It's expensive, but worth it in my opinion. Stop dreaming, start playing !!!

Kleiner Würfel macht mächtig Spaß
HS73, 19.04.2018
Vorneweg: den kleinen Würfel als "Übungsverstärker" zu degradieren wird ihm nicht gerecht - er macht gehörig Krach und bleibt dabei immer sehr differenziert im Klang. Er spielt auch definitiv seine stärken aus, wenn man ihn aufreißt. Meine Lieblingseinstellung ist zwischen 8 und 10 mit einer Tele. Toller klang, leicht angezerrt und fein kontrollierbar durch die Anschlagstärke.

Fender hat da definitiv eine tolle Neuauflage geschaffen. Die Features sind bescheiden (An/aus und Volume) - wie im Original. Aber schon klasse, was man aus den Fingern holt, wenn die Einstellungsmöglichkeiten begrenzt sind.

Der Preis ist echt grenzwertig. Aber ich schicke ihn definitiv nicht zurück. Handverdrahtet kostet halt mehr. Aber ob man das raushören kann? Ich kann es nicht.

Ich benutze ihn hauptsächlich für das Recording - aber wenn er mal an ist, mache ich ihn nicht so schnell mehr aus. In kleinen Clubs ist er ausreichend, aber natürlich hat er seine Grenzen aufgrund der Lautsprechergröße. Die 5 Watt scheinen dabei schon ausreichend (habe verglichen mit 15 Watt und 50 Watt Vollröhren). Ansonsten muss man ihn abnehmen.

Verarbeitung ist tadellos, Klang ist gut ausgewogen für Tele. Ich habe eine Les Paul probiert. Passt sicherlich auch - aber nicht für mich.

Ich benutze ihn ohne jegliche Effekte. Braucht er auch nicht. Selbst einen Hall vermisse ich nicht.

Sound ist erstklassig, komprimiert recht stark - klingt aber großartig. Kommen meine großen Verstärker nicht ran.

Für das Recording toll, kleine Clubs ok, größere Beschallung nur mit PA. Sieht dann aber auch etwas - naja - klein aus...
