L'avis de jordanbarman"Très bon ampli polivalent"

Fender Pro Tube Super-Sonic 60 Head
Pour quel usage et dans quel contexte utilisez-vous ce produit?
Je joue dans un groupe de post/rock avec une strat et une tele, le plus souvent sur un 4x10 marshall ou un 2x12 harley benton.

Depuis combien de temps l'utilisez-vous?
Je l'utilise depuis un peu plus d'un mois.

Avez-vous essayé d’autres produits concurrents avant de l'acheter?
J'ai eu quelques ampli et tête d'ampli auparavent, notamment un Vox Nightrain NT15H.

Quelles sont les choses que vous appréciez le plus et le moins?
Les deux cleans sont bien mais innégaux. Le canal Bassman l'emporte largement sur le vibrolux, trop aigue et criard, manque de profondeur et de volume par rapport à l'autre canal. Le canal Bassman amène des clean profonds et définis à la fois. On peut même obtenir un beau crunch lorsqu'on monte le volume (attention par contre au niveau de sortie, l'engin est assez puissant et pourra vite couvrir un batteur...).

Le canal distorsion est vraiment très agréable à jouer. On part sur un son assez vintage aves les gains à moitié, et on arrive vite à quelque chose de plus moderne, défini et compressé en montant ceux-ci jusqu'à 10..! Perso, je joue avec les gains quasiment à fond. L'ampli souffle un peu mais je pense qu'il est plus approprié de baisser un peu les gains et de compenser éventuellement avec une petite pédale à coté. Mis à part ça, j'adore le son qui en sort, l'EQ est très musical et efficace. La boucle d'effet avec niveau d'entrée et de sortie ajustable est parfaite en tant que boost! Ça évite d'avoir une pédale dédiée pour ça (utiliser la fonction FX du pedalboard) et on obtient un boost très efficace et clean..!

En gros, on a un ampli versatile, atypique, avec un son Fender caractéristique, mais adaptable à plusieurs style de jeux (je pense qu'on peu aussi bien jouer du Jazz, de la pop, de l'ambient ou du métal sur cet ampli en adaptant son jeu et sa guitare).

Il est assez lourd et encombrant (comme beaucoup d'amplis à lampes) , c'est peut-être son seul défaut pour le moment.

L'avis de Andrea de Bertier"Meilleur Ampli Fender Moderne"

Fender Pro Tube Super-Sonic 60 Head
J'ai acheté cet ampli il y plus d'un mois et j'en suis pleinement satisfait. (Je suis passé du Hot Rod Deluxe)
Le canal bassman est incroyable et prend les pédales parfaitement. Le canal vibrolux, beaucoup plus clair est également super, il y a juste une légère différence de volume entre les deux canaux.
Le canal burn est probablement un des (ou même le) meilleur(s) de chez fender avec les deux contrôles de gains qui permettent de se faire une jolie palette de sons.
60 Watts sont décoiffants, il est possible de faire une boucle pour limiter (pour ceux qui peuvent pas jouer trop fort) ou pour ceux qui au contraire veulent un joli petit boost. Il est facile d'utilisation et on obtient, après quelques recherches, les sons qui nous plaisent le plus et là c'est tout simplement royal !

Comme dit dans le titre, pour avoir essayé beaucoup de Fenders modernes, il est surement le meilleur (ils ont commencé sa production en 2006 je crois) et ne rougit pas face aux doyens de la gamme fender !

L'avis de Fred the Riffer

Fender Pro Tube Super-Sonic 60 Head
Ampli à lampes, du vrai 60 watts, on peut jouer à 3 avec un batteur qui cogne (c'est mon cas)
2 canaux, avec le canal clair splittable (vibrolux et Bassman), le son bassman crunch bien avec un double, on peut donc avoir 3 sons differents au pied.
C'est du haut de gamme, super cable livré pour la connection avec le baffle externe (un 2* 12 mesa boogie dans mon cas), toute la connectique est béton.
Le manuel est clair, avec les petites astuces et des examples de sons (rock, blues, metal, rythmique, solos...)

UTILISATION

C'est LA FORCE de cet ampli, TOUTES les configurations sonnent d'enfer, en clair comme en saturé

On peut également utilier la boucle comme un boost, cette astuce permet d'avoir un master général, avec 2 niveaux differents sur les 3 sons, pour distinguer rythmique et solos, ou jouer plus cool sur les intros ou certains morceaux.
Si vous souhaitez profiter de la boucle avec un petit delay et autres effets, une pédale volume vous donne la flexibilité necessaire.
Le son Bassman est d'enfer quand il sature mais le niveau sonore rique de déranger le prorpiétaire du petit pub ou vous jouer..., la pédale volume sera alors la solution, pour profitez de ce Son Bassman géniale dans les toutes petites salles

Sinon, l'ampli sonnent d'enfer à bas ou à fort volume, et il y a de la réserve...

SONORITÉS

My God les sons...
Quand j'ai ramené l'engin pour la premère fois, des les premières notes, les visage de mes partenaires se sont éclairés, ça sonne vraiment super bien. Je joue depuis 11 ans sur une tête Marshall JMP customisée par les magiciens de VHM, qui sonne d'enfer, mais là, Fender a fait très fort.
Tout d'abord, les sons clairs en mode Vibrolux ou Bassman permettent d'attaquer tous les styles et de varier les sons clairs sur un même morceaux, et my god c'est beau. On peut comme indiqué plus haut les faire cruncher, mais attention au niveau sonore dans les petites salles ou dans un petit local (la pedale volume sera necessaire pour baisser le général)
Avoir une base de sons clair de ce niveau est top. Vous pouvez imaginer que toute pédale disto et effets sonneront d'enfer sur des sons de cette qualité.
Le canal saturé a 2 gains, ce qui permet d'énormes possibillités: du crunch au son 70s, ACDC, Van Halen jusqu'au Fuzz plus moderne.
J'ai pas mal jouer sur le comber Fender Twin Amp, qui a une bonne saturation, mais celle du prosonic est nettement supérieur, le grain est top. Ca compresse grave et c'est toujours super jolie. J'ai une strat fender et une gibson les paul, ça sonne top dans toutes les configurations.

AVIS GLOBAL

En bref: facile à régler, des sons clairs au top, des sons saturés au top, du vintage au rock moderne (noisy pop avec de la fuzz ou metal), cet ampli repondra à toutes vos attentes. C'est le pied, et bien moins cher que Mesa, et les autres ampli haut de gamme qui vous donnent des sons de cette qualité.

Allez sur le site fender.com ou fender.fr, écouter les sons et allez l'essayer.

L'avis de King Loudness (contenu en anglais)"Super(sonic)"

Fender Pro Tube Super-Sonic 60 Head
The Fender Super Sonic head pays more than a passing nod to the cult classic Fender Tone Master head from the late '90s. It features two channels (clean and drive) each with its own EQ. The gain channel features cascading drive controls as well for more variety. The amp puts out 60 watts of power and is driven by a pair of 6L6GC power tubes. It's got an effects loop on the back of the amp too. The amp comes in two colours, black and blonde tolex as well. Here's a more complete list of specs:

# All-tube design
# 60W power
# 2 channels (Vintage and Burn)
# Dual cascading-gain preamp overdrive
# Effects loop with send and return levels
# Vintage channel controls: volume, treble, bass, and voicing switch (Vibrolux/Bassman)
# Burn channel controls: gain 1, gain 2 bass, mid, treble, volume
# Preamp out jack
# Power amp in jack
# Standby switch
# 16, 8, ohm 4 ohm selectable
# Tubes: 5x12AX7, 1x12AT7, and 2x6L6GC
# Includes 3-button footswitch for channel switch, voicing switch, and effects on/off

UTILIZATION

Dialing in this amp to sound good is pretty simple for sure. The interface is pretty intuitive and user friendly. The controls react normally and don't have a steep learning curve like certain other higher gain type amps. The clean channel is decidedly Fender in how it responds, and both the Vibrolux and Bassman modes sound like their respective models. The drive channel is very Fender-like in how it responds as well, and that's definitely a good thing in my books.

Basically, it's not a difficult amp to dial in by any means, and I particularly like the feel of how the controls react on Fender amps, so this one gets a good rating here.

SOUNDS

I've tried this amp with various guitars and definitely like the vintage voice it has in general. For a 6L6 loaded Fender amp, it has a surprisingly British sounding character that I really like. It's got a very unique sort of flavour to it for a high gainer that I really dig overall.

The clean channel sounds like a marriage of two great Fenders. The Vibrolux mode offers a tighter and skinnier sounding clean tone, and the Bassman mode is fatter and gainer sounding overall. Having the two separate modes is a definite plus for sure, and it gives an added versatility to the amp.

The drive channel has a very smooth and refined vibe that reminds me a lot of a driven Fender or Mesa Boogie amp. Very clear and defined with a tempered low end, a present but smooth midrange and subdued highs that still allow for great driven overtones to to come through. Very cool.

OVERALL OPINION

All in all I think the Fender Supersonic head is a great offering from Fender that has a nice range of tones from clean to high octane. It's not really an amp I'd use for metal or anything too high gain but for rock styles it's got a cool voicing that stands out. They were about $1,200 new when they were out and I believe they're discontinued now, so grab one while you can!

L'avis de denied (contenu en anglais)"One of the best modern Fenders"

Fender Pro Tube Super-Sonic 60 Head
- Two channels, clean and burn
- Clean channel break down into Vibrolux and Bassman modes
- Clean controls for volume, bass, treble
- Dual cascading gain controls
- Burn controls for drive 1, drive 2, treble, mids, bass, volume
- All tube circuitry
- 60 watts
- Footswitchable effects loop w/IO levels
- Extension speaker jack
- Pre out
- Power in


UTILIZATION

Lots of killer features on this amp. Basically three differently voiced channels. Dual cascading gain takes a little time to get used to, but is a great addition. The level controls on the effects loop make it much more usable, and can also act as a 4th channel/boost with the footswitch.
My one big complaint is the volume discrepancy between the Vibrolux and Bassman models on the clean channel. It basically makes switching between them near impossible so you’re stuck with whichever one you choose. Seems to be very solidly built, no reliability issues.


SOUNDS

Lots of great sounds to be coaxed from this Fender. The Vibrolux mode on the clean side delivers all the sharp trebly cleans you could want. A little too much high end brightness for my taste, almost icy. You have to be careful what kind of guitar you pair with it, the bridge pickup of a telecaster would just not work. The Bassman channel actually does a pretty good job of modelling the vintage Bassman tone.
On the drive channel, you really have to work with the cascading gain controls to get what you want. It takes a little while, but you can dial in just about any kind of drive setting, and it gets surprisingly heavy for a fender.


OVERALL OPINION

Probably the most versatile Fender I’ve ever used, and by far one of their best current offerings. Selling for $900 new at the moment, it is definitely an affordable amp, with used models in good condition going for less than 600. I know a few people that have decided this is the only amp they need for live playing. Versatility, reliability, affordability...it’s difficult to make a case against this one.

L'avis de iamqman (contenu en anglais)"Super Sonic Midnight!"

Fender Pro Tube Super-Sonic 60 Head

This is the exact same amp as the black standard or the oxblood wheat brown Super Sonic. This one has a black tolex, but the front grille cloth is a black salt and pepper looking front. Not exactly the standard salt and pepper but a verion that seems exclusive to Fender amps. I have never seen this grille cloth on other amp besides Fenders. In addition the control knobs are also black to match the rest of the amp. Same great features and tone as the other two, but just a deep midnight style amp.

Also, this is the exact same amp as the combo version with the Celestion speakers, but just in a head version.

This is one of the very best modern amplifiers that Fender has put out. This is more of a high gain amp for Fender but still keeping the vintage clean tones they are so famous for having. The amp have quite a bit of features compared to some of their more vintage styled amps. This one has a fat boost switch and also a reverb to add a bit of depth to the tone. I would call this a vintage modern amp for Fender.

SOUNDS

I like this amp with all kinds of guitars, but mostly I like it with a Fender Stratocaster or a Charvel San Dimas or Socal. I like the light to medium tone of the ash and alder body woods. This compliments the nature of the amp quite well. The clean is very Fender sparkly and jangly. Then you go to channel two and having two gains is almost heaven. This is something you see on several boutique amplifiers. Suhr amps like the PT100 has a similar thing but theirs acts like another channel. This one just gives you deeper and juicy gain distortion.

OVERALL OPINION


If you need a good clean tone and a hot rod gainy distortion channel then this is your amp. The clean is remarkable and the gain has so much variation with the dual gains that is makes this amp a lot of fun to play.

Unfortunately these amps are no longer being produced by Fender. At least I have not seen them new anywhere. I don't know what the used market price is for these units right now.

Having two channels and both are exceptional is a big bonus. I would recommend anyone to go and try this amp if you get the chance. You may or may not like the voicing but it is a solid amplifier.

Fender Pro Tube Super-Sonic 60 Head
This is the same amp as the combo version but just in a head version. You get the same features and tone but just the ability to use it with other cabinets. This head has a particularly sweet looking tolex covering. It comes in a blonde/cream tolex covering and a brown grille cloth that match up real nicely together.

This is one of the very best modern amplifiers that Fender has put out. This is more of a high gain amp for Fender but still keeping the vintage clean tones they are so famous for having.
