I've never tried one, but I've heard that have great OD for a fender, yet still have that great fender clean channel. Hell, I wanna try one now.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Try it out. It does get quite grainy with the gain. The only thing is that it isn't voiced well for the heavier stuff. It kind of gets over-saturated too if you go crazy with the gain. The cleans are great. You can choose between the Vibrolux and the Bassman. They didn't sound that close to them but I didn't get the chance to crank it so...

is the super sonic good for Led Zeppelin style material (including LZ songs)?

what would be the best amp to get for a Zeppelin sound?

Make your own thread. You hijacker.

The Super-Sonic can do Zeppelin alright, but there are amps that do it better. Generally go for British voiced amplifiers like Marshall and Orange. If you're on a budget, check out the Traynor YCV series or the Crate Palomino series.

i thought that because someone was asking what the super sonic was like, i would ask as well but be more specific, which may have actually helped the person who started this thread. he/she is certainly no worse off.....

i love you man, you've just proclaimed the beatles as their own genre.

i hear the supersonic is good though, go to a music store and try one out to see if its what you need though, i've heard its pretty good clean, and does alright on OD.
I breathe air.

i also thought about a dsl combo,but all those fender classics rolled into one amp,plus a hi gain channel sounds like a line six worth a damn.lol
anyone used a cyber twin??? not that i'm looking, jus wondering.

I didn't really like the cybertwin. It's just a big ole hybrid amp with two 12ax7s. It just seems like a huge waste to me.

right on the spot
i dont know about that amp he right about the vibro and bassman thing
and the gain
i dont know if this is stupid or not but what im ganna do is just buy a Vibrolux and a metal muff its amazing completely transfroms the amp and leaves a great clean just by pressing bypass the metal muff DS is bettor than the one on the Fender Supersonics and the cleans on the vibrolux are bettor so in combining a pedal and an old classic amp you get the best of both worlds

wouldnt that cost like a million bucks? an original 1959 Marshall? i was looking for an amp sporting a sensible price tag, and one i may even stand a chance of getting my hands on.

I've heard that traynor's have the classic marshall crunch in spades. I probably check those out.

That has banged more girls than all of UG put together.

Anyways, a used Mesa Mark IV would do ANYTHING you want. It would do pretty much everything better that the fender except cleans although the Mesa's cleans are sexy as well.

It's AMAZING

I play blues, and satch stuff


The overdrive, when cranked over 5 is so nice! I have these settings on with my tubescreamer as a boost, its an amazing lead tone:

gain1- 6
gain2- 9
bass- 6
mid-7
treb-10


This amp has great tone

The clean channels are good, especially the bassman, with a od pedal like a tubescreamer in front of it, you got your perfect blues tone, add more gain, punk, etc.


Im sure with a very heavy distortion pedal it could do metal


BEWARE, dont let 1 speaker, 60 watts fool you

This is LOUD!!

Louder than my friends Twin Reverb when cranked


All and all, a VERY versatile amp from fender, the best fender amp to date!

I doubt the mark VI's cleans are as good as fender cleans


With the gain up all the way, cranked you can get a very Rectifierish saturated tone

Dude, the Super-Sonic sounds nothing like a Rectifier. It may have the same amount of gain as one but the voicings are way off.

I have a hard time believing that because the Fender Twin is one of the LOUDEST amps I've ever played.

Vintage 30's are very loud speakers. But still, a Twin should be louder.

Well the only way I see the Super-Sonic being louder is if the Twin in question is a '57 Reissue Twin. The 40 watt one.

Even then, the volume difference would hardly be noticable.

i love these amps to death. im in the process of getting one, some lucky fcuk just outbid me, thankyou whoever you are, and got a nice black combo.

everything about this amp is great, the combos got good reverb and tone to die for, best fender amp ive heard. just BUY ONE
#28
i didn't think the overdrive channel was anything to write home about.

the main selling point of the supersonic, if you ask me, is if you need an amp with both tweed and blackface style cleans- or sparkly and warm at the same time. the overdrive channel was alright for not too heavy stuff, but anyone who thinks it holds a candle to a recto, engl, bogner or other quality high-gain tube amp is either on crack or else doesn't actually play with high gain all that much and can't recognise a good high gain tone (much like people who play blues say metallers wouldn't know a good blues tone if it hit them in the face). in my opinion.

For what you want, unless having nice cleans is your primary onjective (and it doesn't seem to be, based on what you've written), i'd look elsewhere. it's still a fender, and nomatter what they say, if you ask me their modus operandi (i.e. nice cleans at the expense of other tones) hasn't changed much, if at all.

are you getting rid of your blues deluxe? if you aren't, your clean channel is already sorted.

thing is, considering you already have an amp with really good cleans (better than you'll get on pretty much any high gain, unless you go to extreme prices, and even then there's a good chance the fender will edge it), you can pretty much ignore cleans in the amp you're looking at. Get an A/B box or something.

what's your rough budget? (sorry if i missed it)

honestly price isn't an issue. maybe 1000-2000, i don't want to spend an insane amount.but i've been playing with some metalers and want something that can get close to mastodon out of the box.

not too sure about mastodon (don't listen to them), but those are two badass amps, only they don't really have clean channels. would seem perfect for what you want. probably other options too, of course. splawn competition or something like that might be worth a look too, but i haven't tried it.
