I have a Fender Super Reverb amp that I bought from a friend a few years back. I am trying to figure out what year it is, and what all of the fuss is about the "blackface mod."
I have been looking around on the net for the past few hours trying to figure this out, but I don't think I know enough about the amps to make an assumption about what it is.
So, if any of you jemsiter's are fender amp experts, i could sure use your help =)
Here is what I have gathered:
It is a Silverface amp. It has the Fender logo, chrome, no tail. It has a master volume switch that can be pulled out and it makes the amp damn loud
It has 2 channels, one with a volume, treble, mid and bass pot. The other has volume, treble, middle, bass, reverb, speed, intensity. Both channels have a bright switch. On the back of the amp, the power rating is 70 watts. It has 4 10" Fender speakers in it.
If anymore information is needed, I can look at the amp and take some pics, just let me know what parts you need to see.
I would like to know what year it is, what its approximate value is, and if anyone knows a good tube amp tech in Arizona that can give it a look over for me? It makes some scratching sounds when I turn some of the knobs.
also, do I need the footswitch to engage the reverb effect? It does not sound like it is working.
thanks for all of your help in advance!
