Fender Vintage Modified Band-Master Head and Cabinet
Fender Bandmaster VM, $900.00; VM 212 enclosure, $500.00
Eddie Van Halen once said he got his best tone at home alone, “playing through that little Bandmaster cranked on 10.” Fender’s new Band-Master VM and Band-Master VM 212 enclosure may not be little, but they make a far more versatile rig that has all the bells and whistles for modern guitarists.
The 40-watt amp is based on the midpowered tube-head concept and employs two 6L6 power tubes and two 12AX7 preamp tubes to voice its clean and drive channels. The result is a tone palette that ranges from Blackface clean to aggressive overdrive with post-gain EQ. An all-new high-quality DSP platform adds reverb, chorus/vibrato and delay effects, providing the tweakability of stomp boxes. Plus, the companion VM 212 enclosure has two 12-inch Celestion G12P80 speakers for fat bottom end and clear highs—all of which ensures you’ll get great tones whether you crank this baby at home or onstage.
