I just purchased the Fender Super Sonic 1-12 blond w/ oxblood grill. It's the color of clotted blood. But it looks really nice. I've had history, I bought one three years ago and the thing crapped out in the first playing at home. It was a hum, others have complained about that same thing. Ibought a Blues Deluxe RI and have enjoyed the amp, no problems. It did cause me to buy pedals though. The Super Sonic is oftem compared to the Lonestar Special but I don't feel it's a fair comparison because they don't sound at all the same. The Super Sonic is definalely Fender in tone. People say the Vibrolux isn't the same as the original, but it still sounds great and sparkling. Same story with the Bassman and again it is in the family for sure very close. And then the Burn channel. I dig it. Does really good SRV or Back in Black depending how the cascading volumes are set. I want the Texas tone. I'm also not planning on getting rid of my pedals. I have two flavors of od Zendrive2 and Greenline, and a Fuzzy Lady fuzz, an Empress ParaEq Harddrive delay, Red Witch Pentavocal Tremolo and a Benwah. And I want to use my Blues Deluxe for stereo from the delay. Of course I'll leave most of that at home when going to the blues jam. I'm playing blues, jazz, rock and all of it fuzed in various ways. I dig Kimock, Frisell, SRV, Ford tones. I've heard tube changes and speaker changes have been great for some people. I heard that about the Blues Deluxe and ended going back to stock. What are your thoughts on the Super Sonic amp? I dig it so it doesn't matter, let me know what you think.
