Fender Greta

Hey, it looks like a vintage table top radio! Well, it's not. It's actually a Fender amp, believe it or not. It's the Fender Greta.

The new Pawn Shop Special Greta model is one of the most unusual tube amps Fender has ever made. The Greta (love the name) is a 2 watt table top cutie with a 4 inch Special Design speaker. Just look at it - isn't that cute?

The Fender Pawn Shop Special Greta features a vintage looking VU meter with “clean to overload” indicator display, which is so retro - I simply love it. It also has basic volume and tone controls, and a 1/8” back-panel aux input, which is perfect for mp3 players or other media player use, so you can play along to your favorite tunes.

This unusual looking amp has the “Greta” script badge on the front panel. Under the hood and on the back panel, 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).

Because the amp is constructed with a wooden front and back, finished in bright red, with contrasting metal sides and top, you get the impression that the rounded-corner design was inspired by the rock'n roll of the 1950s.

This amp is perfect for the bedroom players out there - loud enough to be exciting to play, yet quiet enough to not bother your neighbours.
