What Makes It So Special?
At the heart of the Tone Master Pro's brilliance lies its repository of over 100 of the world's most sought-after amps and effects. Boasting an impressive lineup, it includes iconic Tone Master Fender models, the groundbreaking EVH 5150 III Stealth model — the first officially licensed version, and other timeless classics meticulously replicated through Fender’s proprietary Tone Master Modeling process. This ensures an unmatched sonic experience that guitarists crave.
Excitement With Ease
Navigating the Tone Master Pro is a simple, enjoyable experience. With the ability to create presets, customize footswitch assignments, and easily combine them into songs, organizing your musical journey into setlists is now more convenient than ever. The 10 custom-designed footswitch encoders are a testament to Fender’s commitment to user-friendly design, allowing for quick editing and instant access to all your presets. Quite simply, using the Tone Master Pro mirrors the tactile experience of adjusting settings on an actual amplifier.
Every Modeler Needs A Friend
If the announcement of the Tone Master Pro has you excited, hold onto your britches because Fender was also kind enough to unveil the new Tone Master FR-10 and FR-12, two flat-response powered speakers. Crafted with today's digital guitar amp modelers specifically in mind, these cabinets come with built-in 1,000-watt power amps, and either the 10- or 12-inch speaker will faithfully reproduce amp models with varying degrees of breakup depending on size, making them the perfect companions for Tone Master Pro players. Offering clear and precise sound reproduction, both the FR-10 and FR-12 allow players to fine-tune their tone with a 3-band active EQ and high-frequency cut control, line output signal untouched. Visually, these cabinets draw inspiration from other Fender classics, which means just because you’re using a modeler doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice the experience of having an amp on stage with you while you play. It's not just about delivering powerful sound; it's about creating an immersive and visually captivating experience for both the player and the audience.
