The original was used on countless hits over the years, and the new 65 Princeton Reverb is easily versatile enough to go from your living room to the recording studio to small gigs. Its got the vintage vibe that Fender die-hards know and love, but the 65 Princeton Reverb isnt only for the old-school guys who played em 30 or 40 years ago its for anybody who craves top-notch tube tone, naturally dynamic clean and overdriven tones, and unmistakable long-spring Fender Reverb and tube Vibrato.

A historically significant amp,the originals fetch more than $2,000 these days and its as valid as ever in todays musical world. Dont take our word for it, though, listen for yourself!

Classic Princeton Reverb Amp sound. The 10 inch Jensen is this amp's identity. No need to change the speaker, the stock is perfect. If you need a 12 inch speaker, get the Deluxe Reverb. The original Russian and Chinese tubes sound wonderful as well; they will be replaced only when they burn out. If the speaker starts flubbing out at high volume levels, turn the bass knob to 3 or lower. Input 1 for single coil pickups and input 2 for humbuckers but do as you please. I use the Reverb at 2.5. Anything after 4 is overwhelming. The intensity on 10 for the tremolo is not very intense if you ask me. I used an EHX Soul Food for some dirt at lower volumes (4 or 5) and it sounded so dam natural - Impressed. Being considerate of others in my home, I'm not always able to crank the PRRI to 10 to get that sweet tube overdrive. It's got enough power to gig with...assuming that at larger venues, your PRRI wil be miked up. I prefer this amp to the AC15, which I absolutely loved. The Princeton 65 Reverb Reissue is the real deal.

I love this amp. Basic Volume, Treble, Bass, and tremolo. Extremely clean and clear tones make this my favorite Fender amp. It's loud enough for practice and yet you can play at low volumes also. If you are looking for a lower wattage amp, this is a great piece of gear for sure.

I've got the 'Surf Green & Hot White' model of this amp, but the guts and tone are still the same as the basic/classic black tolex model. You've got that classic Fender tone from the 50's and early 60's, reverb, tremolo (vibrato) and great warm tube tone all rolled up into one in this little 'Tone Monster'. I tend to use it mostly with a Gretsch 6120 for the early Rock n' Roll/Rockabilly type stuff, and a Fender (Squier) Jazzmaster for the early Country/Hillbilly Bop/Surf/Deke Dickerson sounding stuff, and it works great! You can start to get great semi-overdriven sounds after about 5-6 on the volume, and for such a little amp, and a 10" speaker, it is LOUD! Louder than you'd think, easily pulls off small to medium sized gigs, and the reverb goes from bluesy space to full out surf-rock and beyond! You can get a decent natural reverb on about 1-2 on the dial, anything past 4 is really overkill for most playing, but it's that great early natural Fender reverb. The tubes they use are a 5AR4 for the Tremolo, 6V6's for the power and 12AX7's for the drive, and a 12AT7 for the reverb. It's a great little tone-full amp, and if you want that vintage Fender tone in a modern, reliable, affordable amp, this is a great choice. Also great for a good overdriven (Blues/rock) sound for recording, without getting the cops called on you for shaking the windows in your house. This amp is the closest I can get in tone to a early 1960's Fender Bassman, or Victoria/Gretsch style hand wired amp for under $1000. I highly recommend this great little amp!

I have played Fender amps during most of my 40+ years as a guitarist. My first amp was a Fender Super Reverb and most recent was a Deluxe Reverb. I wanted to downsize without losing the Fender Chime and recently found the little Princeton Reissue on Kijiji. What a find!!! It sounds great with my old '69 Tele and great with my new Gretsch 6120. The reverb and tremolo are fantastic producing the old Fender sound guitarists want. If you are a Fender user looking for a great little amp for studio or small gigs look no further. It's worth every penny and more :) Check out this website: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHVG4kDurtY
