Fender has revealed two new small tube amps that are said to have an air of the early days of electrified sound - the Excelsior and the Greta
Round the back of the Greta amp, there's a 6.3mm instrument jack, a similarly-sized line out, and a 3.5mm auxiliary input that gives users the option of playing music through the amp
The Greta amp features a single 12AT7 output tube and one 12AX7 preamp tube, a 4-inch speaker and a sweet analog VU meter to indicate clean to overload tone
The Excelsior features a 15-inch Special Design speaker, bottom-loaded primary chassis and top-loaded control chassis and is powered by two 6V6 output tubes and two 12AX7 preamp tubes
The distinctive 13-watt Excelsior is said to offer tones from polite to raw to raucous
Whether it's an old-fashioned typewriter input for tablet computers, digital cameras made to look like 35mm film classics, or custom e-bikes with a touch of vintage styling - retro-now is most definitely in. If you want a guitar amplifier to fit right in with all your nostalgia-oozing new tech, Fender's Pawn Shop Special models are here to help. The diminutive Greta is styled liked an old tabletop radio, and the more powerful Excelsior is described as one of the distinctive tube combo amps in the company's history.
