Good for the most part
Anonymous 22.01.2016
Used a 1996 USA Lonestar Strat & a series of guitar effect pedals going into the front of the amps custom channel with bass on 10, treble on 6.5 & volume between 4-6 in a smokey hotel bar residency 5 nights per week in Dubai - United Arab Emirates.

Played in 4 piece band (bass, drums, guitar, female vocals & backing tracks) Rock, Jazz, Reggae, Blues, Dance, Top 40 Chart hits music for 6 months. Set up the amp and kept it in the same place. Everything worked perfectly even when the hotels fire alarm shut all the power off on the stage randomly every 2 months without warning - The amp would always start back up again.

More than a year later with the same tubes and still sounds great. Only once has the amps fuse blown because it was plugged into a intermittent power supply.

This is a good 'workhorse' general purpose amplifier.

Pros:
1. Super clean tone
2. High quality reverb & vibrato can be used on both channels
3. Relatively lightweight & compact
4. Breaks up nicely at around 50% volume
5. Loud enough to keep up with a mature drummer(who doesn't bash the kit)
6. Looks beautiful

Cons:
1. No effect loop for external delays, reverbs etc
2. When micing the amp to a live mixing desk or for recording, it has a small hissing sound even with all volume & tone controls turned down and without any cables plugged in.

Great Giging amp
Alan2898 26.04.2015
I love this amp..Perfect for pub and club gigs playing anything from classic rock, country and blues. i find it has just the right amount of power to get that classic fender breakup sound at small gig volumes.. back the volume off on your guitar and get great twin type tones.. if you have not used amps without pre-amp gain controls before you need to learn to use your guitar volume to control the gain or simply put an overdrive or distortion in front of it... they sound great with pedals.i use an ABY pedal to switch between the 2 channels or run both at the same time. both channels have different characteristics. custom channel is bassman sounding, vintage is more twin. having had twins and devilles in the past..its a joy to carry this amp. very small in weight but big in sound..

Good amp but riddled with problems
oli123 12.01.2018
When I got the amp and plugged it in the first time there was a lot of noise, hissing and humming. If you turn up the reverb there was even more noise.
The tremolo is completely unusable, sounds nothing like tremolo but more like a helicopter.

I swapped out the reverb tube and after that the noise reduced from the reverb but the amp itself is still very noisy. And there is not a whole lot of reverb on tap even when it's set high.

Otherwise it sounds alright but it's really puzzling that a company like fender would sell an amp in this condition for 1000 euros+

Great sounds but noisy when idle
Richard aus Q. 04.07.2015
Not quite sure where it's all coming from but there are a lot of noises (crackling sounds when turned on, pop sounds when the standby is turned off) and hiss when nothing is plugged in that are a common complaint with this amp on reviews. Now, if so many users are saying it's there, does that mean it's normal for this amp?

Is that a quality control issue? I put three stars for verarbeitung but with a question mark. just not sure what to think of the noises. As far as cosmetics, no complaint, it's stunning.

That being said.... wow, once you actually start playing and the littles noises are thus burried, it sounds fabulous! The concept is great, the channels are really different in character and if they could build it flawlessly, it's a winner. I do recommend it.

Lots of people seem to prefer this one to the DRRI.
