Great amp for everyday sound with a little punch of vintage -and more expensive- Fender!
When someone asks me about my Excelsior and how I would summarise it in one sentence I always answer: "It is like 1960's Tremolux, without all the fancy switches and Reverb." Not that I do not like Reverb on Fender Amps, I played those for 5 years, it is just how address the Amp. Also I love that I do not actually miss al the switches; if I want a little different sound, I just switch the input jack holes, and in case I need little punch while gigging I just turn the Bright switch on and since it has 15inch speaker, you get, by my opinion, better texture and accents, than when playing a 2 by 10inch speaker, which you can support by the only geniue Fender Tremolo, that can take care of a small venue or club. And if like the sound and want to play bigger places, you can always hit the extension speaker output in the back and you are set. And last but not least, it looks great as an interior piece of furniture!
Nice old fashion Fender Amp !
This is a good amplifier, the main feature is the 15 inches speaker and it has no EQ. In fact the only buttons on it are a tremolo effect, a Bright/Dark switch and 3 inputs one for GTR, Accordion and harmonica. This 13 Watts amplifier sounds great and even better when i want to play rock and metal i plug it on my marshall 4x12 and it sounds great. But to have my sound i plug an EQ, OCD overdrive and a Lee Jackson reverb and this amp looks great too like a good piece of furniture not cheap at all.
If you want a fender tweed deluxe tone but can't afford it, buy this amp. They have a really similar honky tone that just sounds fantastic. Natural overdrive when the dial is at noon, and really beautiful cleans before that. Plus the Analog tremolo is great!
