Fender Vibro-King 20th Anniversary Edition
Fender introduces the Vibro-King 20th Anniversary Edition amp, celebrating two decades of hand-wired all-tube design.
Vibro-King brought back traditional point-to-point amp wiring in 1993, and up to now, it is sought after by many guitar players.
The 20th anniversary Vibro-King delivers the same boutique quality construction and tones as the original amps and provides the same loud tone that the series is known for.
This all-tube amp has two inputs and follows a simple single channel design, powered by 5 x 12AX7 Preamp Tubes, 2 x 6L6 Power Tubes and a 6V6 Reverb Driver.
It also comes with Pre-gain '63-style Fender "Tube Reverb" and Tube Vibrato (tremolo) effect. These effects are sought after, and have been cloned by other amp makers.
Although pricing information is not yet available, you can expect it to command a hefty price tag just like all Vibro-King amps.
Here is the Press Release from Fender:
Fender introduced the Vibro-King in 1993 to great acclaim, marking a return to a great hand-wired amp tradition while including a previously unavailable selection of sought-after features.
In the two decades since, guitarists and amp aficionados everywhere have prized the enduringly classic Vibro-King as one of the most touch-sensitive amps ever, with sparkling-clean shimmer at lower volumes and powerfully thick overdrive when cranked up. Fender now commemorates those two decades of pristine tone with the release of the Vibro-King 20th Anniversary Edition amplifier.
Available in black, blonde, and brown coverings with silver, oxblood, and wheat grill cloths, respectively, the Vibro-King 20th anniversary model features all-tube hand-wired circuitry, custom Schumacher transformers, three new proprietary Fender Special Design Alnico P10R-F speakers by Jensen for warmer tone, and much more. The Brown/Wheat version also has a solid pine cabinet for increased resonance.
