Crank up the 'verb and get swept away in the classic Fender tone.

The Fender '65 Twin Reverb Amp is an authentic all-tube reproduction of the original classic! It has earned a reputation of being one of the cleanest tube amps ever, but it delivers a taste of the trademark Fender crunch when cranked up high. Delivers 85W through two Jensen 12" speakers. It has two channels, tube vibrato, tube spring reverb, tilt-back legs and Blackface cosmetics. Includes two-button footswitch to control reverb and vibrato effects. Order the optional Fender amp cover to protect your investment (see accessory box on this page).

Designed to sound as close to the original as possible, the ‘65 Reissues are assembled in Corona, California and feature Jensen speakers (One C12K for the Deluxe and two C12Ks for the Twin, four P10Rs for the Super and one C10R for the Princeton), Schumacher transformers, traditional tremolo and tube-driven reverb to create that classic, "Blackface" sound so many players desire. They do have PCBs (Printed Curcuit Boards), as opposed to the original's "hand-wired" circuitry, but the components (capacitors and resistors) are the same values as amps from that period. They also have hand-wired tube sockets and other parts for added strength.

Tonal Characteristics: Bright, scooped midrange that is known as the "Blackface" sound, pronounced "Wine Glass" highs from the Jensen speakers and a slightly more polite power amp for crystal cleans that can also be cranked for great overdriven tones.
Who's it for: Players that love the original versions but are priced out of owning vintage amps, blues players, country players, rock players, guitarists trying to get classic "Blackface" sounds (a la Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer), American-made amp enthusiasts, traditionalists, avid Fender collectors.

  • Hear you - loud & clean!

    As reviewed by Larry in MA on 4/29/2009

    65 Twin Reissue: The daddy of all things big and clear. The absence of confusing parameter controls is a virtue. You have volume, EQ, reverb, and vib/trem. The beauty is in the tone - that vocal, chimey, pure FENDER-ness that cannot be imitated. You get flawless clean power with extremely comfortable headroom. If you have spent big bucks souping up a Strat or some other awesome guitar, this is the vehicle for showing it off. It takes the statement from your axe and makes it VERY public without altering the message. I have a Strat with Duncan Antiquity custom-wound Texas Hot pickups and when I play it through the Twin it can go between singing angelically and snarling like a junkyard dawg (but you do need a stomp box to junkyard-snarl). This amp will put closure on your search for the perfect tone.

  • Twin, I love you!

    As reviewed by steve on 9/20/2010

    This amp is very sweet. You can play any style you like with the right pedals. It shines using it clean or with a TS-9. Its shines playing country, Reaggae,ska,oldies. It fills any size room with ease without a mic in front. Just use stage volume in any bar room. Sounds best at volume on 4 and higher so set it on at least 4 in smaller rooms and set your guitar volume knob. (Thats what I do and I use it without pedals, just clean most of the time) The reverb is the best there is and throws it out in the crowd so a little goes a long way. The bright switch is perfect for those crowded rooms when you need to cut through or with other guitarists playing. The controls work nicely with a noticable difference with each number to fine tune your sound. My amp is a 2002. Bought used,Ive had it over a year now and works fine. Tubes get very hot I use a fan behind all my tube amps. The pilot light flickers, but oh well. Its cool. I put JJ tubes in it but Im not impressed and will go back to Sovtek or GT's when ever. Dont buy into the JJ tube hype. The amp sounds awsome, just saying. This amp is heavy, buy a flat cart at Tractor Supply, the 4 wheel kind or a hand truck(dolly) or buy casters at Home Depot like I did. I would buy again if need. Hope your back can lift it.

  • The perfect amp.

    As reviewed by Bryon Staats on 1/24/2012

    I picked this amp up used a few months ago. I've primarily been a solid state guy for 25 years, aside from an ADA MP-1 tube preamp that's been the staple of my rack setup. Not necessarily by choice, but more of a function of money. Hard to justify the price of a tube amp when supporting a wife and child. Anyway, I finally got one! This beauty is what clean guitar should sound like. I play heavy rock mostly, but feel inspired to play clean more and more, now that I can actually hear what my guitars sound like. I mostly play a Jackson DKMG with EMG 81/85s, an ash bodied Tele with vintage noiseless pickups, and an '87 Charvel 1A with upgraded Seymour Duncan stacked pickups. All 3 guitars have their own beautiful sound, but it's no surprise the Tele sounds best plugged straight in with no pedals. The Jackson and Charvel both sound awesome straight in and with pedals. This amp takes pedals very well. I run through a Fulltone OCD, MXR Fullbore Metal(with gain and treble turned very low), and MXR EQ. I really only use the EQ in conjunction with the metal pedal to smooth out the high end harshness. I've only plugged into the Normal channel once, to insure it worked. Since then I use the #2(low) input on the Vibrato channel. I always use the reverb, typically on 2.5 or so. Never really use the vibrato other than to play around and experiment. It is very lush sounding. I can't imagine a better sounding reverb anywhere. Volume-wise, this baby has more volume and clean headroom than you will ever need. If this amp is not loud enough for you, you're insane. Bottom line: Sounds crystal clear, takes pedals well, sounds good playing any type of music, and has more power/volume than you'll ever need.
