Overview

The clean sounds of the Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp are loud, clear and strong. This custom version of the '65 Twin Reverb utilizes the 85W chassis of the original, coupled with a slightly modified cabinet and a single 15" speaker instead of the standard pair of 12s. The speaker is based on the JBL D130F used by Fender in the '60s and '70s. Its cast frame, shallow cone, and large voice coil deliver the clean, precise tone characteristic of the Twin but with a fatter bottom end and smooth treble. It also has higher power handling. Black, heavy-duty textured vinyl covering, silver grille cloth, nickel hardware, and a metal badge identifying the model. 2-button footswitch, removable casters, and an embroidered cover are included.

Guitarists interested in the Texas blues sound should check out the Fender '64 Vibroverb Custom (product# 483710).

I wanted a tube amp but really wasn't sure what I needed. After having a Fender Princeton and having a Fender amp back in the 60's I knew that they were made well. All it took was for me to plug the guitar into this amp and I was sold. I liked the one 15" speaker over the two 12"s because it gave you more bottom. The reverb on this is amazing and is so bright and clear. I don't recommend this amp to metal players, but to those who play blues, jaz, classic rock, country, this is the best amp I know of. It is loud, can be played clean with no reverb at all. I can't say enough about how well this amp is built and sounds.

    Comments about Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp:

    I have this Amp and use it as my right channel. In the left channel I use a 1966 Blackface Dual Showman which drives a 1964 Blonde Cabinet with two 12 inch Oxford Speakers, original. Even at low volumes in the family room, this Stereo setup sounds as Professional as any I have ever heard. The 2 Oxfords have a slightly warmer/softer tone than the 15" in the Twin, not by much. The 15" is brighter, but again, not by much. In short, it is the Perfect Setup for Stereo. I drive them into distortion with a General Guitar Gadgets Blues Breaker pedal which I put together. Perfect.

        This worked great right out of the box. Tons of power and great sound. The 15" speaker really adds to the bass response.

          My pedal steel guitar has notes all the way from A27.5 to A1760. The Twin Custom handles them all with low rich tones to the high crisp sounds. I love it. I have ownrd many amps in my career and this one is the best! The only complaint is it's weight but it is manageable

          Comments about Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp:

          The 15" speaker has extraordinary range. You might expect great lows, and they are there, but the highs and mids will blow you away. The twin 12" model is a great amp; this 15" model is a whole different animal. The best way to describe the tone is "musical." It inspires you to play better. Unlike some amplifiers, this amp sounds good accross a wide range of guitar types and accross a wide range of musical styles. I am extremely pleased with this purchase.

          Best of the Fender amp lineup!

          By ZACH COOK

          from Florida

          Comments about Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp:

          If you are looking for something with a clean and big fat open sound, than this is the amp for you! I've owned a 2-12" Twin Reverb a while back and I loved it too. The one thing thats different about this amp however is the tone itself because of the obvious 15" speaker. It produces a sound unlike anything else out there. You can even crank this thing up without it distorting/breaking signal on you (provided, you have good pickups and nice cables. The Reverb is lush and deep and the Tremolo is so perfect, no pedal comes close. Like I said, I've owned the 2-12" twin, and this beats it by a mile. If you are looking for a clean amp that can handle ALL distortion pedals, look no further and get this!

          Comments about Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp:

          The band I toured this amp with had Heavy metal sections that would switch to "Jazz" guitar styles.
          look up "Devil Doll" to see what I mean. Basically I had to be slash on the solos and jazzy ventures guy on the verses. the clean sound was always stellar and clear. I used a Toadworks "Death Rattle" to get my heavy Overdriven sounds. That band had the loudest drummer I've ever worked with and he always asked me to turn down. My job was basically to take face melting solos every song so I did have it loud enough to make sure everyone in the club heard (I turned down my guitar when the singer was singing) this amp responded to the dynamics well. (just like a tube amp should do)
          It is great if you're playing loud and need to be clean. It worked best with a Les Paul and a Gretsch, Teles and Strats always sounded too shrill and plinky through this thing, even with pedals. I use a deluxe reverb and a Bassman with my country/blues/rockabilly band now. most bigger shows my amps get mic-ed so I go with smaller amps so I can turn them up and get the tubes really workin. Check any video of "Ry Bradley" to see what I mean.
          Twin custom 15 is a great amp for the band I described, for most other working situations, it's just plain too loud (it only shows it's character after 4) your ears will be bleeding. I'll never sell mine, but until a Devil Doll Reunion I won't need to play loud and clean like that.
          CLEAN AMP. so clean and so loud. You can drown out the loudest drummer with this amp, be careful. plenty of headroom. Tremelo and reverb are amazing as you'd expect from fender.
          15 inch speaker is great and no other fender amp out today has this sound. it's made to replicate the original twim with 2 JBL speakers. I've done a side by side comparison and it is just as good.
          I beat the hell out of mine for years on the road. I've only had to change the tubes after 7 years and it still is a great amp. I've dropped it when slipping on icy stairs in colorado, and it even survived and worked great after the van flipped off the highway.

          Comments about Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp:

          I have wanted this amp for some time I use it in conjunction with a 65 reissue Super Reverb which I bought in 2003. I play at Church using both amps. It is very loud and can compete with the Church's 1000 watt PA. and my volume is only set at 2 and a half. It is a very clean sounding amp and you can always add distion with a pedal if needed. Would recommend this amp or the Super Reverb.
