When we first heard Fender was making in-ear monitors, we have to admit we were immensely curious; after all, the legendary guitar and amp company makes the most famous instruments and amplifiers on the planet! After doing some digging, we discovered that Fender had acquired Aurisonics last year, one of the most innovative IEM companies in the business. For our review, we choose the FXA6, which uses a combination of a Hybrid-Dynamic Balanced Armature and a custom 9.25 rare-earth driver to deliver a gigantic sound.
This gorgeous little amp might be designed as just a Fender acoustic guitar amp, but it’s capable of so much more. Designed with simplicity in mind, the Acoustic SFX offers two independent channels and a variety of built-in effects. Patented SFX (Stereo Field Expansion) technology gives the amp a dynamic, wide, room-filling sound and both the Walnut and Natural Blonde color options bring a fantastic aesthetic to the stage.
The original Duo-Sonic was introduced to the world in 1956 as a student model with a short-scale neck (for players with smaller hands) attracting young players such as Jimmy Hendrix in the early 60’s. A faithful reissue of the original, the Duo-Sonic adds a few modern tweaks for more versatility and playability.
