They were made in the 90's, solid state, had gray carpet covering, black faceplate & red knobs. they looked like this (this is a bass version)



As far as sound goes, it's been quite a long time since I've even seen/heard of these. Let's just say that they're as popular as the 'Metal Strats' Fender put out.

I'm thinking that they were an answer to the Peavey Bandit, etc.. that were (and kinda still are) the staple of beginner amps for people that want to jam but don't have the coin for all tube combos or 1/2 stacks. Back then you couldn't get an amp head for much less than a grand (not like you can now with E-Bay and the like).

Sorry I couldn't help as to what they sound like, but I think I recall people saying they were quite loud.

i used to have a 30 watt one with black covering. it looked much better than that one. Its been so long since i had the thing, i can't remember if it was any good. All i remember is it had a clean setting and two distortions, and that i eventually sold mine for $30.

now that you mention it, i do recall it as being surprisingly loud for such a small amp.

I sort of inherted one. Distotion is total doo-doo but I absolutely LOVE the clean channels.

I keep it in my room as a practice amp.

...though, it's worth noting the HM strats are actually QUITE popular in certain circles.

For sure.. It's not that they weren't any good, my guess is that your average Fender buyer probably wasn't too fond of the huge 'Strat' logo emblazoned on the headstock as opposed to the regular Fender look. They're just one of those guitars that just never took off.

Your average Fender buyer is also into the "vintage" look, probably plays a Vox, Fender, or Marshall tube amp with a wah and some sort of overdrive that's been in production since the 60's or is a Tube Screamer, and plays blues, country, surf, or classic rock.

They sort of ....ed that on up, in other words.



(the sad part, is they learned their lesson and this is why they haven't built a seven. )
