Pretty doesn't make a modelling computer amp any better.
And...for those who can't seem to actually read before just firing off their old-man "Never-tried-it-but-I-don't-like-it" opinions :
"The new editions swap out the previous N-12K neodymium speakers for Celestion NEO Creambacks, promising a "more distinctive rock 'n' roll flavor". Additionally, they include an improved reverb control, offering easier fine-tuning at lower settings.
The new editions also feature new IR cabinet simulations, captured with Shure SM57 and Sennheiser MD421 microphones."
They are using new speakers, creambacks. And some reverb updates. I will need to try these and see how they are, but I do prefer this cosmetic look.
Those are good looking amps! I picked up the Deluxe Reverb for $679 (used) last week from The Music Zoo and it's a fantastic sounding amp. Love the clean channel. Sold my tube in Reverb and I still have money left over
...says the guy who lists a Boss ME80 multi-effect in his gear signature .
Touche and all in good fun of course. I dig my TM but they're not for everyone. Is anything for everyone? That's pretty deep...
I wish I would have waited for this one
I only use faux amps and only play at home, but, I was thinking Fenders Marketing department could benefit from a changing from Espresso to Camille tea.
They truly are great sounding amps. That, from a boutique/vintage tube-o-holic. These Tone Master amps are genuinely superb sounding amps. Don't even comment on them unless you've played through one. Just try one out if you haven't already done so. Great tone whether they sound "exactly" like a vintage blackface Fender or not. And they take pedals very well. IMHO, they're one of the most significant advancements in guitar amplifiers, hands down. And I'm as hardcore of a tube amp addict as there ever was. Fender really did their homework on this one. The perfect gig, backline, or home practice amp. Pretty much checks all the boxes for me.
A friend asked me to play through his (older version) Tonemaster. I thought it sounded great, though I'm generally a tube amp fan. (He said it was the best he'd ever heard me play - I wonder what he meant by that? )
I assume the Creambacks are heavier than the Neos.
I mean I am so not in the market for an amp but
I wish Fender would do the cosmetics correctly when they make special runs of tolex and grille cloth. Fender often goes with blonde tolex and either oxblood or wheat grille cloth, but retains the BF panel and knobs which look rong, IMO. How hard could it be to provide the panel in brown and use cake knobs?
It depends on how old an "older" Tonemaster is, but a 90s Tonemaster is a tube amp.
Very cool, but reproducing the BrownFace circuits would have been cooler.
True, but shaving down the weight was one of the top line features of the amps.
Since that's just software, I'd go further and have a Black/Brown switch in the back. Unfortunately, it can't change the livery automagically!!
Still waiting on the Bassman and maybe the Super
oh wait, i not 15 minutes ago said I'm not in the market...
It's not the normal Creamback.
the Neodymium Creambck weighs 4.2lb, 1.9kg. were talking about differences in grams, if at all.
Oh! I missed the Neo bit. I take it all back
EDIT: I checked and the Neo Creambacks are actually slightly *lighter* than the previous speakers, 1.9kg versus 2kg.
