The Fender deluxe is a solid amp but Fender have just pushed it to ...... The Edge.
This model, designed specifically for U2's guitarist, a man who combines a bold attack with a wide range of tonal changes throughout the bands catalogue, is a fantastic amp. It's voiced to match The Edge’s desire for a simple, highly dynamic design, this 12-watt hand-wired amp features modified circuitry for tighter low end response and high-impact tone. When you want to switch from powerful lead to bold power chords this is the sort of setup you want.
Extremely dynamic, this updated circuit reacts instantly to the guitar’s output volume and your picking dynamics to unlock a wide variety of amazing clean and overdriven tones that work well with almost any style of music.
Powerful yet refined speakers
The distinctive voice of the coveted 12” Celestion Blue speaker, with its smooth attack, warm lows, mellow upper midrange and bell-like high end, creates richly-defined tone with highly musical compression when pushed.
Here's what Fender have to say about this guitar
