Anyone tried the Cyber-Twin?

I have spent about 3 hours with one and I'm getting one very soon. I was impressed with the amount of accuracy

and punch this amp has. I can do all of the things my playing style needs with this amp. I also like the fact that

this amp is very easy to use and you go deeper into other features and controls if you like to tweak things. I think

this is another hit for Fender, worth checking out.

Played around with it for about an hour in the store.


Preamp part is definitely happening. It responded like you would want - particularly in the range between clean to dirt that modelling amps have trouble with. And it does really sound like a Fender.


Fender has been pushing the preamp side and deemphasizing the power amp. To my ears it lost some of the warmth because of the solid state output. Also, I don't think that they're doing anything to model different speakers -- it sounds like a bunch of amps through the same cabinet. Not a crime, but it does lead to the tones seeming more similar than they might.


For something like a guitar amp, I always try to rent it or do a conditional purchase. First impressions have mislead me before, so I like to wear it for a while.

I think the big thing they're missing the point in is that one of the things modelling allows you to do is have some semblance of a cranked power amp sound without the deafening volume.
