Product Description

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.

Made in USA Original all-tube circuitry 85 watts 2 Jensen 12" speakers 2 channels Tube vibrato Tube spring reverb 2-button footswitch Blackface cosmetics

-- I've been a performing guitarist for almost half-a-century and have owned and played many classic amps in that time, from a Marshall Super Lead 100 stack, to a Peavey Delta Blues, those olded padded Kustom "piggy back" amps, and a bunch of great Fender amps including an original Bandmaster, a 4x10 Bassman combo, 100-watt "silver face" Twins and a Vintage Series Deluxe Reverb Reissue. This Vintage '65 Twin Reverb Reissue is "The One" I've been looking for all this time. I'm just sorry I waited so long to take the plunge.

-- Okay, I'm old school and play mainly blues, garage-band-style rockers from the '50s, '60s and '70s, and originals, mixed with a bit of this and that (country, jazz, folk rock, etc.). I don't do heavy metal, thrash, punk or head banging stuff. I WON'T say this Twin isn't suited for the stuff I don't play, because I think it could be adapted for it. However, it would need some effects pedals to achieve those sounds.

-- But if pure, maximum "clean" is what you are after, this is your amp. eriod. None does it better. It's not cheap, but you do get what you pay for, especially with this amp. You get tube-driven/tank reverb and tube-driven tremolo. No wimpy digital reverb, but the real deal. The controls are as basic as you can get (treble, middle, bass plus basic controls for the reverb and tremolo), but they are sensitive. A little adjustment up or down makes a huge difference. The amp itself is also touch-sensitive to the dynamics of your playing. Many amps are, but the Twin does it best (at least among those I've owned and played).

-- One big thing I love about this amp is its tonal balance. Every note, from the lowest low to the highest high, ring out with clarity that makes your playing stand out in the mix. On the downside, you can't hide your mistakes. An amp like this will make you a better player out of necessity. I HATE a "farty" amp -- one where it mushes out when you wail on the bass strings/notes. The Twin stays tight and focused, no mater how hard or loud you hit those strings.

-- For a long time, I was a basic guitar-to-amp player who refused to use effects. I still am and do, but I do now use a couple of simple pedals, although two of them -- a Boss tuner and Boss EQ pedal -- are not really "effects". A Boss tremolo pedal is coming off my board (don't need it with the lush tremolo this amp has built in). I'm replacing a stereo chorus echo with a delay shortly. That leaves a TS9 Tubescreamer for the "dirt" I sometimes want in a solo or old Ted Nugent tune. The bottom line is that the '65 Twin RI LOVES effects, if that's your thing. Even if it's not, you will need some sort of overdrive or distortion effect to get those overdriven sounds. This amp just won't break-up naturally unless, perhaps, you push it to "10" ... and even then I'm not so sure.

-- One final note: I used this at stage volume during a practice with my band the other night. I have ALWAYS had to tweak things tonally with the EQ pedal, especially with a Strat (which is what I used the other night), but also with a Les Paul and a Carvin guitar I have. But at our poractice this week, I NEVER kicked on the Boss EQ pedal with that Strat. Didn't need it. The Strat sounded full, and rich and deep straight through the amp, with no EQ needed from the pedal. That to me speaks volumes about how good this amp sounds.

-- the '65 Twin RI is solid and, yes, a very heavy 64 pounds. I have a collapsable dolly I picked up cheap some time ago at a major hardweare chain store. I can't recommend something like that strongly enough if you get this amp. It will save your back. The amp does not come with a cover (must be ordered separately), but does come with a footswitch.

-- In summary, I should have bought one of these a lot sooner. I would have saved some serious dinero on the other stuff that has come and gone looking for what the Twin nails so perfectly (at least for my style of playing and the music I play).

.Overall I give it an 9 just because it's so darn expensive. In the sound department it's a perfect 10. It has the sound I've been looking for for years. When they say "that Fender sound", this is the amp they are talking about. I've been playing through a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe for the past 5 years. My wife had been harassing me for spending so much money on this amp from when I ordered until it came in. I gave her a little side-by-side comparison between the Hot Rod and Twin Reverb. There really was no comparison. It even suprised me how much better the Twin sounded. I had thought the Hot Rod Deluxe sounded pretty good, but the Twin Reverb put it to shame. My wife said "oh, I see why you bought it now." No more harassment. Of course i'll say the obilgatory "this amp isn't for metal" statement. You will not get this amp to distort without a pedal. It just keeps getting louder and louder without distorting. It takes pedals well. My Fulltone Plimsoul sounds excellent through it. One thing in reading other reviews and looking at amp forums that made me think twice about this amp was that some people said it was too loud to practice with, gig with in small places, ect, even with the volume below 3. I'm here to say that I practice with it at home between 2 and 3 and it sounds fine and is not loud at all. At gigs, even with it mic'ed I have the volume on 3 or 4. It's not terribly loud at that volume. Now, anything past 6 is just scary. I will say that. It's a great amp, so just close your eyes and spend the money. You won't regret it.
I gave it a 10 for features. It really doesn't have alot of features, but if you are looking at this amp, you already know that. The most important feature is has is it's great sound. If you are looking for a feature-packed amp, look elsewhere. If you are looking for "That Fender sound", here 'tis.
Seems to be very well constructed. Time will tell how tough it is. Really can't say at this point.
I rated the value at a 7. I feel this amp is overpriced. Of course so is most other music equipment.

.Smooth warm clean sounds at high volume. Will showcase the true sound of any guitar, and is perfect for a clean slate platform to add pedal FX. Use it as my main amp for all styles. Just add an Overdrive, Wah, Chorus, Delay, Compressor, and you can pretty much play anything.
The essence of the amp is not really its loaded features, but it has everything I needed. 3 band EQ, Reverb, and a usable Vibrato that is more like Tremolo. Tubes, and loud as heck.

Gave an 8 because it doesn't have an overdrive channel. Though, not a big deal, would save room on my pedal board. Also no built in FX, and a Bright switch that I don't think is necessary. Also, they could have put some wheels on this thing. It is the heaviest amp I've had to drag around. Definitely could use some casters.

Again, this amp is not about features like a Line 6, or other amps with built in DSP fx. The features it does have are right on the money though. Just need to add some stomp boxes for your different sounds.
Built solid. I do get a low crackling sound for the first minute that the tubes are warming up, but once they're revved, sounds spectacular.
You really can't put a price on great tone. Every serious guitarist is always searching for that perfect tone. I don't think you can ever really reach perfection, and that's one of the elements of guitar playing that makes it fun, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. As close as you can get to the true intended sound of the electric guitar I think.

.What can I say that hasn't already been said. The fender Twin Reverb amp is one of the top amps of all time at any power or price range. I got my first Fender amp in 1966 (Fender Bassman, wish I still had it) I've had everything from Marshall, Fender, Acoustic, Vox, Kustom and several more, but the Twin Reverb sits on the top shelf. I've heard nothing better for pure, clean powerful sound. You can add your favorite pedals if you enjoy that, it compliments everything.

.I had been gigging with a '65 Deluxe Reverb reissue and for some of the performances I was having to max out the volume. So I bought the Twin, knowing it was a similar sound with a lot more power behind it. Sometimes I use a giant pedalboard full of Fulltone pedals and sometimes I just use a vintage Tube Screamer and this thing kills either way. I will say that I live in Austin, TX, and it is always a walk from parking to the venue, so the weight of this thing is an issue, but a small dolly has worked out pretty good. I play a mix of Teles, Strats, a '71 SG and a '59 Gretsch and all of them sound awesome through the Twin after a little messing with the tone knobs. Giant sound, not a stack. My cup of tea.

. If you want a lot of over-drive, use pedals or another amp. If you want to hear what your guitar has to give, and hear what the gold standard is for a electric guitar amp, this is it. I only wish it weighed half as much as it does.
This amp is heavy, and may justify a gym membership to just lug it around. The tone of my guitar going through it is worth every pound it weighs. Any guitar through this amp just sounds better. I use it with an American Std. Telecaster and a Gibson ES-339. It even sounds good with a Godin ASC electric nylon-string guitar. I do not use the bright switch, leave the tone controls at 5, and have the reverb set at 2. I have had no need to bring the volume of the amp up past five playing in large church sanctuaries, and without being mic'd into the PA system. It will get insanely loud, and there is no need to loose your hearing pushing this at 10. Get a small amp if you are going to do that.
I purchased mine used, and have not had any issues with it at all. Single-coil pickups through this amp are surprisingly quiet compared to playing through my '65 Princeton Reverb reissue. The amp is clean with a bit of compression and very slight Fender crunch when the volume is above 3. It is designed for a lot of clean headroom for larger venues or playing with a horn section.
You get what you pay for, and quality amps are part of the equation for good tone. This amp will cover any musical style and allows for quite a dynamic range with just string touch. This is my second Twin Reverb, and it is my main amp for playing in church. I do not use effects as the tone of this amp with a good guitar is enough for me.

.The ONLY reason this gets a nine is the weight of this monster to lug around is painfull. Why not have some built in solid casters? This amp is still the best amp I have ever played through and I have been playing for many years. I will never go for any other amp period. Dud I mention that this amp is also VERY freakin loud? I would stand this amp up against any amp EVER built, this is the top dog.
Features, nice clean tone. I use a synth guitar that needed a clean plate to play with. A PA was not the answer, couldn't get that bottom end warmth sound through a PA. Clean is what I wanted and this amp is the cleanest period.
Talk about quality, dependability and remember, TONE, clean tone, melting your ears away. Plenty of head room for small too large venues.
I value this as MY solid sound that I have been searching for YEARS. Thought this was just a country guitars dream as I am more a hard rock guy. Using this with my Roland VG-88 set up just goes hand in hand. I can go from a lustrious 12 string sounding guitar to a deep Drop-D heavy metal sound that just blasts any room I have been in. I play a variety of styles and this amp delivers straight forward deep lush tones that any guitarist would appreciate. I get compliments all the time about my tone that I never got before I had this amp. If you are ANY kind of guitar player at all, you know how important CLEAN tone can be. This amp delivers!

.I want to clarify at least 1 thing about this amp. This amp does not have built-in distortion; it's not meant for metal right out of the box. If you're looking for an amp that let's you hear what your guitar and effects are suppose to sound like, then this is the amp you should buy. For those saying "it's too loud", (scratching head) it is an amp! Lol! Look, if you want to know what this amp is capable of, go test it out at your local music store and see for yourself. There aren't any downsides to this amp unless you're using it for the wrong reasons. Overall, great amp!
Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Twin Reverb 85W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp
.First of all I'm going to say that this is heavy amp but, when you turn it on and, hear the sounds that come out of this amp it really won't matter.
Now for the good stuff. Fender Blackface Twin Reverb= The Holy Grail of Clean and Powerful Sound! If you only use the reverb and, tremolo effects that are in this amp it would be enough. Add a few of your favorite pedals which the amp will take straight into to the inputs and, you have Killer sound with power to spare! I owned one these back in the sixties and, I had forgotten what a pure, clean and, powerful amp this was. I have went through a lot of different amps in my 40+ years of playing but, now I feel like I have went full circle and, came home to where I was always meant to be. I could go on and on but, I won't. If you've always wanted a Fender Twin Reverb just do it, it's only money, you'll have a smile on your face evry time you just look at this amp and, the sound of raw tube power and, rich full sound will send your music to heights that you can't even imagine. Amen!
