Classic Pure Fender Blackface Tone w/Power

The LOUD on-stage standard for many in rock and roll over the years, this 85-watt (and just as heavy in pounds) amp has a sound all its own, sweet, warm, and very responsive tone stack with great bottom end. But it's fine at home with volume on 4 and your guitar volume turned down. But to really appreciate this amp you need a big space and adjust the tone stack to suit your taste, and not crank it necessarily to 10 on volume. So much has been written in Internet reviews on this amp, just Google it. I bought a used one built in April 2007. Probably Fender's best reverb. Add delay, some chorus, and you'll be amazed. It's a keeper. No problems, takes pedals nicely and has lots of volume and a distinctive warm tone of its own from the 12-inch Jensens. It's a Fender classic. The guys at L&M will tell you all about this baby.

Instead of the 2x12 speaker configuration in this combo amp there is one 15 inch speaker. The ’65 Twin Custom 15 is an all-tube combo amp that pairs an 85-watt reissue ’65 Twin Reverb chassis with an enlarged cabinet and single 15” speaker instead of the usual pair of 12s. The Twin’s vibrato, reverb and crystal clean tones are great as always, and the 15’s extra-fat clear bottom end, smooth treble and high power handling are fantastic. Fender designed an updated speaker with Eminence based on the famous JBL D130F model Fender used in the ’60s. Its cast frame, shallow cone, high flux density, large voice coil and aluminum center cap deliver clean, precise performance for players in all genres, with amazing 3-D bass and treble separation. The amp is a pleasure to play and to look at. For those that wants tons of clean headroom this is the amp to get. It will take a microphone via a small mixing board in the normal channel. You can use your guitar in the vibrato/reverb channel. Have used this amp for practice and on stage. It projects 360 degrees like no other amp I have heard. You will have no trouble being heard with this amp. And you will be heard clean. If you want some gain, a great option is a Seymour Duncan SFX-11 Twin Tube Blue; a High-quality, two-channel, guitar preamp pedal voiced for blues. Twin Tube Blue's high-plate voltage and 100% vacuum tube signal path allows the tubes to operate at their fullest potential and provide maximum dynamic range. This is Fender’s best re-issue blackface amp.
