NAD: Fender Tone Master Twin Reverb

Post by sunburster » Fri Jun 05, 2020 5:19 pm

Just got this the other day. Here it is next to my Roland JC-22.

I have to say this is an amazing amp. Totally blew me away. Built-in attenuator so you can get Twin Reverb sounds at low volumes, light weight (only 33lbs), excellent Jensen speakers, no tubes to worry about changing, etc. It really nails the Twin Reverb tone and feel. Really the way the amp reacts to your playing at different volumes and intensity is just like a Twin (I used to play a friend's Twin back in the 90s), which is something I haven't experienced with other amp modelling software. With this, I really can't tell it isn't a tube amp when I play it. The reverb and vibrato are spot-on as well.

And the pine cabinet smells nice too. :w00t:

Oh damn, I want one of those so bad! It sounds perfect for my pedal steel guitar. I played a TM Deluxe Reverb in a store pre-covid and was pretty impressed!

Very nice :w00t: I remember watching Andy's shoot-out video with a Tone Master and a tube version and thinking that it sounded amazing. I wish they'd add to the Tone Master line with a Princeton too...

That would be cool, wonder what it'd weigh, haha!

Yes, very sick amp! How does it compare to your JC-22 for home use?

It sounds much better than the JC-22 (it's not even close, really, IMO). Thanks to the attenuator I don't really need the 22 anymore when playing normally, but I like the 22's headphone output and stereo inputs (great with stereo effects) so it has become my night-time headphone amp. ;)

Next amp on my shopping list is a Vox AC-15HW (a tube amp!). I want to run effects out to the Twin and the Vox at the same time.

I think you are going to really love that combination of Twin & AC15.

Leave some room on your list. You’ve been warned.

Because then you’ll need to get a cabinet with an appropriate speaker(s) in a cab, because of course you do - it’s an AC15HW and not to would be unforgivable. I recommend a blue or a gold, or Weber’s equivalents. I like alnico, but I’m sure the ceramics are good if you prefer those types.
