The Fender Twin Reverb from the 1970s Silverface era is about as iconic as a guitar amp can get – one that defines an entire generation of sound.
This is a nice, Fullerton made Twin Reverb from 1977. These amps are legendary for being very versatile, super clean and having plenty of headroom. That’s 100 watts of power at 8 ohms. They take pedals with ease, and the master volume allows for dialling in the right sound at the right volume.
These amps are totally bullet proof. This one has done plenty of gigs and never missed a beat. It has had no major repairs because none were needed. Just the occasional valve replacement, bias adjustment etc.
Everything appears to be original from the outside, but we have not yet investigated inside. These amps were all hand wired, with point to point circuitry. No circuit boards here. And they were so well built that the only thing that may ever have needed replacing were some capacitors, which is kinda necessary if you want to maintain that wonderful original sound.
The two original Fender branded 12” speakers are intact and sounding great. The reverb is dripping with tone and depth, and the tremolo is unmistakeable classic Fender. The footswitch is missing, but replacements are readily available.
There are a few scuffs and marks here and there, but overall the original black tolex is in good shape. And remarkably, there are no holes or tears in the lovely front grill panel.
It has that big, clean, spacious sound that is synonymous with the Silverface era of Fender.
This is a nice example of a Fender classic, with a few miles on the clock, but lots of gas in the tank for years more service.
