Fender has released new demos featuring Mason Stoops for two new tube combo models: the ’68 Custom Pro Reverb and the ’68 Custom Vibro Champ. Both of these amps were announced back in January.
’68 Custom Pro Reverb
This 40-watt tube combo features a single 12-inch Celestion Neo Creamback speaker, a single channel, and two inputs. Controls for the main amplification circuitry include volume, treble, middle and bass, as well as a bright switch. You can also dial in the amount of reverb, as well as the speed and intensity of the amp’s tremolo.
The amp lists for $1,299.99 / £1,349 / €1,499.
’68 Custom Vibro Champ
This 5-watt amplifier is geared for home use, practice and gigs where you don’t need to be particularly loud. It’s fitted with a 10-inch Celestion speaker, and comes with in-built tremolo and hall reverb. Amp controls are a stripped back set: just volume, treble and bass present here, as well as knobs for the amount of reverb and the speed and intensity of the tremolo.
It lists for $749.99 / £799 / €899.
