The Fender Greta Amp is a tabletop guitar amp designed to look like a vintage radio while producing clean tones through a 4" speaker. Kevin Pereira and Matt Mira review the Fender amp for its official Gadget Pr0n rating.
What You Need To Know
The Fender Greta amp is a tube amp in the form of a vintage tabletop radio, which looks pretty cool.
The front and back are wood panels painted bright red, while the top and sides are gold finished metal for increased shielding.
The front features the speaker, volume and tone controls and a Vu meter.
Vu stands for volume unit and when the meter is in use, an LED lights up and the analog needle moves from clean to overload.
The meter doesn’t read peaks of volume but just kind of averages everything out.
The amp sounded really good.
The specially designed 4" speaker has two control knobs for volume and tone.
It's not the loudest thing in the world but we did get some nice sounds out of it.
We were impressed with its clean tone.
If you turn the tone knob up, you get a much more crunchy tone.
This amp not only plugs into your guitar but also has an auxiliary port.
Music didn't sound too bad out of the speaker.
It's no iPod dock but it's a nice bonus to have with this great amp.
You are getting mono output on this.
We actually took the top off to look inside and sure enough, there were tiny glowing vacuum tubes.
The sound is warm and very much tube sounding.
The cleaner the recording, the warmer it sounded on here.
