For this summer's NAMM show, Fender adds significant upgrades to its Dyna-Touch series that bring newly designed DSP effects and modern cosmetics to players of all styles.
All six amplifiers in the new Dyna-Touch III series--the Bullet 150, Champion 300, Princeton 650, Deluxe 900, Stage 1000 and Stage 1600--feature upgrades such as nickel-plated steel hardware, model-specific hand-crafted Fender DSP effects, and a new cosmetic treatment with black & silver grille cloth and metal badge bearing the model's name.
The new Princeton 650, Deluxe 900, and Stage 1000 and Stage1600 models are highlighted by the addition of 7 new timbre filters, including Metal Drop Scoop, Mid Squawk, and Acoustic Scoop. These EQ curves let guitarists customize the amps' tone to many specific applications--everything from ultra-heavy metal tones to clean acoustic-style sounds can be dialed in. These new timbres are also "remembered" by the channels, meaning that the Normal channel and the Drive channels can recall if Acoustic or Bass Boost were selected on each respective channel, and respond accordingly when channels are switched back and forth. The Princeton, Deluxe, and Stage amps also feature a digital chromatic tuner and premium Celestion speakers.
Prices start at $228.00 US MSRP and the amps will begin shipping in August.
