IK Multimedia and Fender Musical Instruments Corporation have announced that the new AmpliTube Fender is now shipping.

AmpliTube Fender offers a selection of 45 of the most sought-after classic and modern Fender guitar and bass amps, cabinets, stompboxes and rack effects, including the ‘65 Twin Reverb, ‘59 Bassman LTD, ‘57 Deluxe, ‘64 Vibroverb Custom, ‘65 Deluxe Reverb, Vibratone, Super-Sonic, Metalhead, Fender Blender, Phaser, Fuzz-Wah, and many others.

AmpliTube Fender is the result of two years of collaboration between Fender and IK Multimedia.
