Fender Ramparte 9W 1x12 Dual-Channel Tube Guitar Combo AmpFender
What a surprise this amp was! For starters, you wouldn't expect an amp this small, light and low powered to be as loud and ballsy as it is. It has a great, smokey tone with a rich bite that's perfect for rock, blues and dare I even say it? Jazz? This amp is absolutely perfect for small gigs as it has quite a bit of punch and projection. As far as the condition goes, it's pretty clean. There are a few small blemishes on the covering but, otherwise, it's clean and solid. This one may have been a bedroom amp as it looks like it barely left the house. This is a ton of amp for the money! Below are the specs and original ad copy on the amp;
Fire up this little 9-watt beauty and you'll be storming the ramparts of Fender's pure tube tone, with real, usable power and performance. With the use of dual "Hot" and "Cool" input channels, you'll have great tonal flexibility when pushing that classic, crystal-clear Fender sound through the 12" Special Design speaker or through the 1/4" speaker out. The Cool channel is voiced from warm and clean to some slight breakup with use of the independent volume control while the Hot side of this easily portable tone machine ranges from mild to wild. And tinkering with your sound doesn't get much more basic than the Ramparte's layout of just two independent chicken-head volume knobs, coupled with your guitar's pickups and tone and volume controls.
Around the back of this two-tone chocolate-and-copper offering from Fender's Pawn Shop Special line, you'll find the tube complement of two 12AX7 preamp tubes and single 6L6 power tube the heart and soul of that unmistakable tube-driven vintage Fender sound.
The Ramparte is ideally powered and voiced for use in practice and studio settings to be able to get rich tube breakup at bedroom-friendly volume levels.
