Associated with the word "tweed" more than any other audio-oriented company, the Fender cabinets offer a unique tone that has always been almost impossible to replicate. Whether combo amps or extension cabinets, they defined what we now call the American Clean sound. With innovative approaches and even gigantic cabinets that looked more like furniture rather than a guitar cab, the Fender cabs offered the perfect combination for all Fender amps, whether the user looked for rich clean tones or a creamy overdrive.
The number of speakers associated with Fender cabinets is massive. While Jensen and JBL were mainly the speakers of what are now considered older (and also rare) models, the newer Fender editions also offer industry standard speakers from Celestion and Eminence. Despite that, what has been engraved in our memory as the perfect vintage clean sound comes from the C12K, P-10R and D120F speakers.
The New Vintage Audio Fenders IR Pack includes 36 Impulse Responses from 12 different cab/speaker configurations, with two additional tube variations for each cab/speaker configuration. By using a different power amp for each IR, we decided to make two more IR files by increasing the power amp's tube volume (and accordingly decreasing the fx loop/line out solid state volume) in order to give more color for those that want that tube sparkle and creamy tone!
Some of the most popular mics were selected in order to capture the most natural sound out of each cab/speaker configuration. The M160, MD421-II, SM57 and R121 were used so that every IR sounds distinct and unique, displaying the tonal characteristics of the cab and giving the user the vibe he would get as if he was near that cab! Once again, these are plug n' play so you don't need to do anything with the mics, their position or put EQ blocks to make it sound good. Just choose the IR you like and you're good to go!
The NVA Fenders IR Pack includes “LIVE” and “STUDIO” Impulse Responses suitable for different situations:
LIVE IRs are more suitable for live gigs, rehearsals or loud volume in general. They are designed to give a great "amp in the room" feel and will behave like a tube amp (thin at lower volumes but full and round at higher volumes).
STUDIO IRs are more suitable for recording or playing at bedroom level through nearfield speakers or headphones. They are designed to give a balanced tone that also cuts through the mix. They already have Low/High cut filters applied on them so that they are plug n' play.
The concept behind NVA IRs is to enable the player to easily choose the cabinet he likes and immediately start jamming or recording without the feeling that a real cabinet isn't there.
