    Looks pretty good for experimenting around the house......

    or on the computer.......

    Anybody got one?

    One review I read the guy had an issue with "hum"

    I had one, i liked it very much, i traded it for an ampeg ba-112. I should have kept it, the ampeg simulation in the bronco sounded better and deeper than the ba-112.

    Using fender's software is fun, but i only used it once to setup my amps and cabs preference.

    It's a great amp for home practicing, it sounds great at low and medium volume, do not expect to gig without pa support!

    I have one I got used a few months ago. It is in my opinion the most versatile and best thought out combo amp ever made. The effects, tuner, sound, look, modulation, weight and ease of use is way above anything else I've seen anywhere near the price range. I found one used that is in perfect shape. Best $140 ever spent.

    I love mine. It has a lot of cool effects. I've had no issues with humming at all & I've had it over a year now. Great little practice amp for the price.

    Just got one on CL tonight. Pretty impressed so far.
    I'm selling my Orange Crush 50 to finance it.

    What are your favorite models to use? There are so many choices, I don't know where to start.

    I have one.

    It is a cool little amp and it's fun to experiment with all of the different settings and tones you can get out of it. The amp models all have different sounds and tones. It has built in compression, which is pretty good, and the effects are alright .

    You can play around with Fuse and save your favorite settings and presets and back them up on your computer and load them onto the amp. The prests that come on it are pretty good, though. They are usable as is.

    I have the foot switch and you can program it to select between your two favorite presets. There is an LED by the jack that will show red/green to show you which setting is active.

    It is plenty loud for practicing and small doings. It has a mono XLR line out if you are wanting/needing to run through a PA and use it as a stage monitor.

    The built in tuner is accurate.

    I have had mine for four years and have had no problems whatsoever with it. Mine doesn't hum.

    I purchased a bronco last fall for a new home practice amp. It has a zillion different sounds, a lot of fun to play through! Im in love with the 59 bassman setting!

  11. Don't be so hard on yourself, edencab. Fender just launched a totally new website, and things are changed frequently.

    :D thanks... but I know why I goofed up.....even though I KNOW it is a Bronco....for some reason the other day, while doing a quick search for it, 3/4's of my brain thought it was part of the Rumble line, hence my "Fender has dropped it" thoughts.....:rollno:
