The Fender Custom '68 Twin Reverb is a guitar amplifier that is part of Fender's Custom series, which offers modern updates to classic Fender designs. The '68 Twin Reverb is based on the iconic 1968 Fender Twin Reverb amplifier, but with a few modern features and upgrades.
The '68 Twin Reverb has a power output of 85 watts and features two 12-inch Celestion V-Type speakers. It has a tube-driven preamp and power amp section, with four 12AX7 and two 12AT7 preamp tubes, and four 6L6 power tubes.
One of the key features of the '68 Twin Reverb is its custom "Vintage" channel, which is based on the classic Fender Twin Reverb tone from the late 1960s. The Vintage channel has two inputs with individual volume controls, and features a custom-tuned Bassman tone stack for added flexibility and control over your tone.
The '68 Twin Reverb also has a custom "Custom" channel, which offers a more modern and versatile tone. The Custom channel has two inputs with individual volume controls, as well as a three-band EQ with a Bright switch and a Mid-Boost switch. The Mid-Boost switch adds a bit of extra midrange punch, which can be useful for cutting through in a live band setting.
Other features of the '68 Twin Reverb include a built-in reverb and tremolo effect, a Fender "F" logo cover, and a footswitch for controlling the reverb and tremolo effects.
