Fender ‘65 Twin Reverb

picture of Fender ‘65 Twin Reverb amplifierWow. This is simply the best Fender amp available at the moment. It is supremely adaptable, looks great, and is superbly built.

What really stands out, though, is the sound. The sound is really incredible.

This is because this is a full tube amp. The gorgeous tones of tube amplification are impossible to recreate on solid state amplifiers, and once you have heard the way this amp sounds it will be impossible to go back.

And we are talking a lot of tubes, here. There are four 6L6 Groove output tubes, four 12AX7 preamp tubes, and a set of two 12AT7 preamp tubes. Whilst this may sound technical, you don’t have to be a scientist to appreciate the effects of all these tubes – they produce an incredibly rich, organic, clear sound that is impossible to beat.

So if you are a classic rock or blues musician, get this amp. It will last for years, and keep on delivering amazing sounds no matter how many gigs you play with it!

Of course, in addition to the incredible sound, this amp comes with a range of great extra features:

PROS
  • The power of this amp, at 85W, is slightly less than some of the others we are reviewing today. However, pure power stats do not tell the whole story. This amp is plenty loud enough to play even large venues, and sounds great even when pushed to its limits. If you are playing a huge venue, you will likely be using a PA anyway, and so any more power than this is unnecessary.
  • The reverb and vibrato effects on this amp are incredible. You know what they sound like, because they have become a staple of classic rock and blues tunes! The people we talked to for this review reported that the first time they used this amp was incredibly exciting, because suddenly their guitars sounded like their heroes’ instruments.
  • There is a reason this amp has become a legend – it lasts for ever, and looks great even after it has taken a beating.
  • Once again, and we know we are repeating ourselves, that sound. It has to be heard to be believed, and is unobtainable with any other type of amp. Have a listen for yourself, and we are sure you’ll agree.
CONS
  • In truth, none. If you are looking for a Fender amp that delivers great sound, enough power for even the largest gigs, and will last for many years, this is the one to get.
