With all of that abuse, the only hint of damage is one small nick in the knob on the gain pot. Occasionally, one of the speakers will come loose, but it's very easy to open the back (5 phillips-head screws) and put the speaker back in place.
It has two 4-ohm speakers, wired in series.
The little amp sounds good. I like clean tones, and this thing delivers. Sometimes I like to rock out with some crunch, and it brings that through as well. It also has a little fold-out steel wire stand on the back so it can lean back. This is very helpful, as the guitar cable would tend to make it tip forward without that feature. My favorite mini-amp so far!
My only complaint is that they could have made it smaller. It doesn't need the "amp head". The controls could have fit in the speaker cabinet, facing up, like the mini-deluxe. But that's a very minor concern.
The enclosure is quality plastic. The speakers are very well protected. The cloth on front is strictly aesthetic.
This little thing is well worth the price, especially if you travel a lot and need something that can take the abuse of baggage handlers and security personnel.
Yes it is small, it is ment to be a FUNCTIONAL REPLICA AMP.
that being said it is a nice little replica that resembles a true tone master amp very well. it would look nice on your desk with a tele or strat replica leaning on it. even the mini knobs are the correct design for this amp.
looks aside its the sound that really matters and where this thing really does get the job done. its clean tone does have the mention distortion when u crank it 8.5-10, however, anyone that has ever used a tube amp knows that this is what happens when the tubes get natural overdrive, now i dont know if that was fenders motive in designing it this way, but it is kinda cool when you think about it. it is quiet without any gain, so you will have to use it on about 7 or 8. however the clean tone is THE BEST i have heard on any practice amp, save the fender champ tube amp.
the gain knob adds some nice overdrive from about 2-5 and anything past 6 kinda sounds the same and just gets dirty. but in the range of 2-5 you can find a nice crunch.
The tone blend is so so, on 1 the sound is kinda choked and on 10 it is very bassy, but the range of 2.5-6 is not bad and most of the work is done btw those digits
Good: very fluid jazzy clean tone \ good posthardcore/indie/blues crunch \ compact enough for bring to lessons or have in a dorm \ headphone jack to play in your dorm or aptm.
Bad: Tone knob only contributes decent tone from about 3-7 \ some dont like it's tiny size (look at the jack for reference)\ 9v battery can bounce around and cause the amp to turn off
Over all: Excellent tone for a small amp and in my opinion sounds better than amps up to 300$ or 400$
I also have one from Marshall, so you probably want to check it out as well. What I like about the one from Fender comparing to Marshall is a way better clean sound (which is expected because Fender has a separate Gain controller). If you don't really play on clean, then I'd rather get Marshall because it just sounds better to on distortion. Marshall Amps M-MS-2W-U Micro Guitar Amplifier
And yeah, if you want a really good sound - then you will have to spend more than that, but again, this little thing totally worth its $40.
1. When they say "mini," they mean it. It's a tiny little thing about the size of a hardcover book (or smaller), and about as thick (2" thick or so).
2. It also runs off a 9V battery, though if you have a DC9V adapter, there's a plug for it. it also has a 1/4 jack for standard headphones or earbuds as well.
3. It's LOUD. Even when at low volume its tones will fill a room. This is a major plus for such a tiny, inexpensive amp.
Controls on the amp are great; it has a gain/distortion knob that is almost as good as having an overdrive or gain effects pedal hooked up to a full-size amp. It's strong enough to where if you're playing small gigs such as coffeehouses or hole-in-the wall small bars, you won't need to lug along your 10W (or larger) amp with you, though that may depend on the tone your guitar puts out to begin with. Still, this is an awesome deal; I paid about $30 here on Amazon for it, so if you need a practice amp but don't want to spend a ton of cash, snatch up one of these little bad boys. You won't be sorry.
Note, this "mod" may shorten the life of the Fender Mini Tonemaster. Proceed at your own risk.
