Quaint retro style in a compact tapletop amplifier.

In the playfully diminutive form of a vintage tabletop radio, the Pawn Shop Special Greta model is quite possibly the most unusual Fender tube amp ever. In fact, nobody would blame you if you saw a Greta and, not yet realizing its true identity, tried to tune in the local weather on it. But an amp is exactly what it is—a two-watt tabletop beauty with a 4” Special Design speaker, old-school VU meter with “clean to overload” indicator display and simple volume and tone controls. Its charmingly vintage-style enclosure has front and rear wood panels finished in bright red, gold-finished metal top and sides for increased shielding, “Greta” script badge on the front panel and tabletop feet. Under the hood and on the back panel, the Greta features a single 12AT7 output tube and 12AX7 preamp tube, with a 1/4” instrument jack and 1/4” line out jack (for preamp use with another amplifier). Greta produces a variety of low-volume clean and overdriven guitar tones, but even if you never plug a guitar into it, the 1/8” back-panel auxiliary input is perfect for iPod or other media player use, with great mono tube playback sound that’ll have you rocking right there at your desk.

    Comments about Fender Pawn Shop Special Greta 2W 1x4 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    A cool little Combo, with unique look to it, but don't let the looks fool you. To start with, the stock speaker is what it is, a 4" speaker, That's what it sounds like too! It alright for low volume practice or the quirky lo-fi transistor radio sound, but not much more.
    Hook up a good speaker cab and this this sounds awesome, if you like the Tweed tone. Hook up an American Voiced AlNiCo speaker (Weber AlNiCo Sig 10S) and it's 1957! like to play this amp into bigger amps using the Line Out and play it into preamp in or instrument in on the bigger amp. Through an old 50 watt Peavey 6L6 2X12 hybrid amp I get some really sweet big tones from clean to Tweed Twin-ish light to moderate distortion. This amp responds well to tubes also. I replaced the cheap Chinese tubes for a set of NOS Jan-Philips 5751(preamp) & 12AT7 (power out) for even more vintage-y tones. This thing has wonderful touch sensitivity, just dial it to the edge of break-up, play it light for chimey clean, dig in for some vintage crunch.

      The Greta amp didn't work. The meter lit up, but I could get no sound out of it. There also seemed to be some light corrosion on the speaker grill. I sent it back for a refund.
