This ‘Fender 65 Twin Reverb-Amp’ is in excellent condition, and is part of an exclusive studio collection that Parsons Audio is offering.
The Fender ’65 Twin Reverb Amp is an authentic all-tube reproduction of the original classic! It has earned a reputation of being one of the cleanest tube amps ever, but it delivers a taste of the trademark Fender crunch when cranked up high. Delivers 85W through two Jensen 12″ speakers. It has two channels, tube vibrato, tube spring reverb, tilt-back legs and Blackface cosmetics. Includes two-button footswitch to control reverb and vibrato effects. Order the optional Fender amp cover to protect your investment (see accessory box on this page).
Designed to sound as close to the original as possible, the ˜65 Reissues are assembled in Corona, California and feature Jensen speakers (One C12K for the Deluxe and two C12Ks for the Twin, four P10Rs for the Super and one C10R for the Princeton), Schumacher transformers, traditional tremolo and tube-driven reverb to create that classic, “Blackface” sound so many players desire. They do have PCBs (Printed Curcuit Boards), as opposed to the original’s “hand-wired” circuitry, but the components (capacitors and resistors) are the same values as amps from that period. They also have hand-wired tube sockets and other parts for added strength.
Tonal Characteristics: Bright, scooped midrange that is known as the “Blackface” sound, pronounced “Wine Glass” highs from the Jensen speakers and a slightly more polite power amp for crystal cleans that can also be cranked for great overdriven tones.
Who’s it for: Players that love the original versions but are priced out of owning vintage amps, blues players, country players, rock players, guitarists trying to get classic “Blackface” sounds (a la Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer), American-made amp enthusiasts, traditionalists, avid Fender collectors.
