Fender Greta Tube Amp Released at NAMM 2012. Looking more like a vintage tabletop radio, the new Greta tube amp from Fender is probably their most unusual amp to date. I don't think anyone would hold it against you if you tried to tune in to your local radio station, but it is indeed an amp. The Pawn Shop Special Greta a two watt beauty with a 4" special design speaker and an old school VU meter with "clean to overload" indicator on display along with stylish volume and tone controls. The Greta oozes vintage style with front and rear panels in a bright red finish, gold finished metal top / sides and tabletop feet. From low volume clean to overdriven tone, the amp offers a variety of tones, but is also perfect partner for an iPod or other media players, providing great mono tube playback sound. As well as all of this, under the hood and on the back panel it 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).
