Why no Super Reverb model, even from Fender?

    I don't understand why the greatest blues amp of all time isn't included in any modeling amps, including Fender's. It makes no sense to me!

    Both the Axe FX and Kemper have Super Reverb models & profiles. Helix has 7 new amps coming out shortly but no one knows what they are yet. Maybe a super reverb is in there :)

    I'm too poor to know about Kemper's and such. I was speaking of the more common (and affordable) Fender Mustang, Vox, Line 6 Spider, Yamaha THR10, and similar types.

    Well... That single word "model" can have different interpretations....

    I clearly said modeling amps, not in the title, but in the post, which you apparently didn't bother to read. The post is also in the forum on modeling amps, not tube amps. I know Fender makes a BF Super Reverb reissue.

    I mean, isn't it too powerful to even really be a blues amp?
    I don't know why though.

    I'm not up on Line 6's newer stuff but the Pod 2.0 I was borrowing for awhile had a "Blackface" model, and there were at least two different 4 x 10 open back cab models.

    Just a wild guess here, but I'm thinking the beginner kid buying the $120 Mustang I is not going to be in the market for a $1500 Super Reverb.

    ^ This, you can go between the deluxe, twin and, super sounds with a generic blackface model and switching the cabs from 1x12 to 2x12 to 4x10. There are some great tones to be found by creating Frankenamps. One of my favorites is a 4x10 tweed deluxe.

    Ha! Mix and match worked best for me too...but the model I liked to start with was the JC120, with gain and mids up pretty high. The blackface was my second favorite. My favorite cab sim with the JC model was the tweed 1 x 8"...why do you suppose Roland never made a tweed 1 x 8 JC120 for the modeling amp companies to emulate?

    This is what can happen when you turn a caveman loose with even an early modeling device and that caveman commits to using his ears and not his eyes with no regard to actual physics and electronic, acoustic or marketing plausibility.

    I guess some assumptions could be made here about how I like my rig's bass response to be set in relation to the mids.

    I don't know. Fender knows how to model BF amps and knows how to model 4 x 10" cabs like the tweed Bassman.

    Perhaps they just want to keep a little mystery in their relationship with us.

    Caveman's ears worked because he needed them to survive. Nowadays with everyone stuffing their ears with MP3 laden earbuds, many have lost that ability. Sounds like yours are still working for you though. :cool:

    Ha! Caveman looks at your avatar and thinks "I bet I could catch that prairie dog easier if I leave more beers out for him..."

    I like to call that "thinking with your beers."

    True, but maybe it's Fender's version of a loss leader.

    I think it;s hard to actually model the feeling of the 4 10's.

    I was fooled by the title too.
