The Fender Super Reverb '65 Combo Amp is part of Fender's Vintage Reissue line, a series of reissued classic amplifiers from Fender's early days. While the amps in Fender's Vintage Modified line are classic models with some modern updates, the models in the Vintage Reissue line are faithful recreations of the vintage models.
The Fender Super Reverb Reissue provides the exact same bluesy, funky sound today as the legendary Blackface Super did in 1965.
With two channels, one normal and one vibrato, and a two-button footswitch to switch vibrato or reverb on or off, the Fender Super Reverb is simple to use but can provide a range of custom tones.
The speed and intensity of the vibrato can be adjusted with the twist of a knob, and treble and bass levels can be adjusted on both channels for simple but powerful customization. All of these features serve to enhance the quality Fender tube sound without dramatically changing it.
The Super Reverb is driven by Fender's time-tested all-tube construction, with one 5AR4 rectifier tube, four 12AX7 preamp tubes, and two 12AT7 tubes. This model even features an authentic tube-driven spring reverb and vibrato, for a high-quality sound that can't be found in any of today's more high-tech digital models.
For those seeking out a classic, vintage Fender sound to power a Fender Stratocaster or any other model of guitar, the Super Reverb does not disappoint with its shimmering, bluesy tone.
45 Watts of power and four 10 inch 8 Ohm speakers make the Fender Super Reverb loud enough to fill large spaces while preserving the quality of the vintage tone. Weighing in at 70 pounds, this amp is a bit heavy to lug around, but as a combo amp with a quality sound and tremendous power, it is all a guitarist needs at home, in the studio, or for live performances.
In imitation of the Blackface Super Amps, the cabinet is constructed from baltic birch plywood, and covered in black textured vinyl. A silver grille cloth and silver details, including the signature Fender logo, give the Super Reverb a timeless appearance. Flashy silver strips along the side of the amp add a touch of style to this classic design, and a simple, logical array of knobs along the front panel makes adjusting settings easy and intuitive.
The Fender Super Reverb reissue is a somewhat pricey model, but for lovers of Fender's signature, vintage sound who are not looking for new-fangled digital options, this is a great option for a powerful combo amp.
