Get pawn shop looks and vibes without spending a fortune.
The Fender Pawn Shop Special Excelsior 13W 1x15 model is undoubtedly one of the most distinctive tube combo amps in Fender history. Its brown textured vinyl covering, smartly stylish œE grille design and bold crossed-swords front-panel badge convey a decidedly stately vibe with a marked air of cold war cool. To say nothing of its admirable tone and power. The 13-watt Excelsior elegantly encloses a single 15 speaker, with a bottom-loaded primary chassis and top-loaded control chassis for operating convenience and low noise (powered by two 6V6 output tubes and two 12AX7 preamp tubes). Distinctive features include Instrument, Microphone and Accordion inputs that each have individually optimized circuitry; tremolo circuit with speed control, bright/dark tone switch (for treble or bass emphasis), volume control and 1/4 internal speaker disconnect that lets the amp drive an external speaker enclosure. The Excelsior is perfect for playing at home, smaller gigs and studio sessions. Bring a fresh and unconventional new vibe to your playing.

Comments about Fender Pawn Shop Special Excelsior 13W 1x15 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
Fender has developed an amp that is unique. For starters the 15" speaker is capable of superior lows, cutting mids, and smooth highs. This alone makes the amp a winner. Moving on to the apperance brings another unique quality - it looks like nothing else on the market! It is more like a fine piece of art,a thing of beauty.
The only "con" I have is with the control knobs. They need a small white arrow to enable the user to see settings clearly.
Overall value for the money? You will not find a better amp at this price range anywhere!
If you have never played a tube amp, then get yourself one of these and you will experience a truly pleasant and fun amp to play.
