Stomp box models include Fender Tape Echo, Compressor, the Fender Blender, Fender Phaser, Overdrive, and Noise Filter. In addition to the amps and stompboxes, AmpliTube Fender offers an assortment of speaker cabinets and two different microphones to further customize the sound.
AmpliTube Fender retains all of the useful features found in standard AmpliTube 2 apps, such as a tuner, metronome, the ability to import songs to play along, and a built-in one-track recorder (upgradable to a four-track recorder through in-app purchase).
