Two years ago, Fender kicked off its Tone Master series of guitar amps with a bang with the launch of the Tone Master Deluxe and Twin Reverb.

Aiming to bring the worlds of traditional tube tone and 21st century amp modeling technology closer than ever before, in a lightweight package, the amps were an impressive statement from the ever-evolving guitar giant.

Now, the company has expanded the Tone Master line with the release of the new Tone Master Super Reverb.

Sonically, the new top-of-the-line Tone Master comes loaded with four 10” Jensen Alnico speakers and packs 45 watts of power at full output – switchable down to 22, 12, 5, 1, or .5 watts via a rear-mounted output power selector.

Weighing in at 36 pounds (certainly more svelte than its '60s predecessor), the amp features a balanced XLR line output with a Level control, ground lift switch and impulse response (IR) cabinet simulations captured by Shure SM57 and Royer R-121 microphones.

Other controls on the amp come in the form of Normal and Vibrato channels – each with two inputs and its own Bright switch – and a mute switch – for silent stage or recording use. The same Reverb and Tremolo effects, and control knob set, are also retained from the 20th century version.
