Talking Fender Twin Reverb

Have any of you guys (or gals) had much experience with 'em?
Ive been looking for a nice amp for a while now and I must say this one's tone is simply brilliant.
I worked my behind off all summer to save for rig ugrades, so I really need some other opinions before i make this kind of investment =D

Thanks In advance folks!

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

I like 'em. I have a Fender Super Reverb that sounds a lot like a twin. Great clean, lots of power, sounds nice with all kinds of pedals.

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

It depends on which one you're referring to. My uncle has a 70's one and its tone is simply superb. I haven't tested a reissue one but I'm sure it's made to sound just like the original. I would get it IMO.

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

I had a guitar teacher that was a fanatic about them. They're awesome amps, they have great tone, I would go for it. I happen to have a 1976 Fender Super Twin, and its got amazing cleans...Its 180 watts though so I don't get it loud enough to distort very often.

This particular one is a '65 remake
I have stumbled across a few used authentic 1970's models but the price tags frightened me a bit =D

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

The '65 Twin RI has been something I've been drooling over for a while now.

'65 reissue is probably a better sounding amp than the 1970's ones in any case - the old "Blackface" Fender amps from the early to mid sixties were renowned for their stellar clean tones and even breakup as they start to saturate. The Seventies Twins were actually designed to run a lot cleaner and louder - as a consequence they tend to be a bit thinner sounding than the Blackface Fenders

They are pretty much a benchmark tone monster.

Having said that, I chose the Vox AC30 Custom Classic over a Twin - simply because I prefer the intrinsic Vox tone - give one a try if you can - very different than a Twin, but again, an absolute classic Tone monster, and the new Vox's are very good indeed!

Cheers

David

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

I have a '65 Reverb Reissue (1x12, 22wtts) and would take the '65 Reverb Reissue Twin over the Standard Twin for tone and the awesomne tube reverb. I'd like eventually get the twin version of the '65 myself at some point.

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

I've played through hundreds of twins, and most are really nice. Occasionally you find a bad one, but rarely. Occasionally you find one worth trading your car for. Beautiful warm tubey cleans. I haven't looked at Fender's site in ages, can you get a Twin head these days? I might be interested in one of those...
