Overview

The Fender '65 Super Reverb Combo Amp is a long overdue addition to Fender's Vintage Reissue series. Here's a faithful re-creation of the legendary and highly collectible Blackface Super Reverb from the 1960s. This 45W, all-tube combo with 4 x 10" Jensen speakers, tube reverb, and vibrato has long been considered one of the best amps to "crank up" for unmiked club gigs or on the concert stage. The all-time bluesy, funky rocker! Includes 2-button footswitch.

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.

The Fender Super Reverb amp (reissue) is the 'best amp' that Fender has to offer in their inventory at this time (in my opinion). This reissue amp is identical in sound to the 'original' blackface released decades ago. The tone is absolutely excellent (loud or soft). The tone controls are very sensitive and provide plenty of headroom to teak the tone. However with me, I simply run all the tone controls on "5" (Vibrato channel). I get what I want from that basic setting. The 'bright' switch is very sensitive and pushes the ultra-high's through nicely. Even though this amp is physically 'bigger' than a Twin Reverb, it is actually a little lighter. It is around 55 or 57 pounds. So, it's 'heavy, and it's 'big'. BUT… it's GOOD SOUNDING! The reverb circuit is especially high quality. For some reason, the reverb on a Super Reverb amp sounds better than on other Fender amps (including the Twin). It's probably because of the 10" speakers, as they are projecting the frequency which is closely linked with the reverb circuit. Even though the Super is rated at 45 watts, it gets as LOUD as a Twin Reverb at 85 watts. Why? Because the 4=10" speakers push more 'air' than the 2-12" of a Twin. So it gets LOUD, and it breaks up much nicer than a Twin as well. DON'T change the speakers! They are designed for this amp! If you start messing with the speakers, you'll lose the tone that this amp has to offer. With the reverb, I only have to set the reverb knob at "3" to really get a nice deep reverb depth effect. On some other Fender amps, you have to push it all the way to "10" to get the reverb 'front-and-center'. One thing I really like about this Super Reverb amp is that is has all the original tube circuitry. This includes tubes for the reverb, tremolo, AND a rectifier tube. Having a rectifier tube (rather than a solid state rectifier) is very important. This is because the rectifier tube produces the 'compression' that is typical of old amps. This natural compression is not there with amps that use a solid state rectifier circuit. I believe the Fender Deluxe reissue uses a rectifier tube as well… but I don't think any of the other Fender amps use the actual rectifier tube circuit, including the Twin Reverb reissue. I have even read reviews where the owner actually removed the rectifier tube and had a solid state circuit put in! Iche! With all due respect to that user, why would you even do this? Critical musicians pay big bucks to get that rectifier tube in the circuit of their amp, because it produces such a nice tone. Musicians go out these days and spend hundreds of dollars on a 'compression stomp box'. Hey folks, just use a tube amp that has a rectifier tube! So, all in all… if you want an amp that will take you through the duration of your music career, go with the Fender Super Reverb reissue! You won't be disappointed. You can play ANYWHERE with this amp. And anywhere you play, people will always recognize this icon as one of the 'legs' of the Fender Heritage. Yes it's big. Yes it's heavy (not as heavy as a Twin). Yes it's expensive (more than the Hot Rod series, even more than the Twin). But guess what? It's worth it! I've owned many amps in my days. Actually had about 4 or 5 Twins, and even 3 Super Reverbs before this current reissue. Because I was a 'crazy kid', buying and selling guitars and amps was just routine activity. Now that I'm in my 'senior years' as a musician… no more buying and selling. My Fender Super Reverb is my go-to gigging amp. (My Fender Blues Junior is my rehearsal amp). Whether I'm playing Jazz, Classic Rock, Blues, Country or big band tunes…. this Super Reverb produces the best sound there is. My main guitars are a G&L Legacy, and a Gibson ES-137 Custom (blue). Thank you. JBM (St.Louis, MO)

I recently used this amp at a gig because mine (Vox AC-30, UK reissue) was in the shop. What a huge disappointment! The amp produces an empty, high end shriek, and little else. There was no body or warmth to the tone at all. I spent a lot of time trying to dial in a decent sound, to no avail. The worst part was that the louder the amp got, the worse it sounded as the 10" speakers start to "fart" with the volume at about 6. I'm not talking about natural overdrive either, I'm talking about the speakers not being able to handle volume and while retaining tone. Luckily, I was using this amp in a stereo setup with a Roland JC-80, and was able to back off the Fender. Still, it was a very unsatisfying sound and a poor sounding show. I would not recommend this amp to a gigging musician. Maybe it sounds fine in the bedroom, or in the studio at low volumes, but not on a stage.

      I used one of these at a gig recently and what a lemon.There are a lot of positive reviews of this and I have to admit I don't get it.I expected it to weigh a ton and it did,,but I didn't expect the tone to be so thin and really weak..thin tone is not clear tone...maybe the old ones are great but the one I played which was right out of the shop and brand new was awful

        I purchased my first super in the summer 1968 but it was stolen in 1993 in all those years it did not miss a beat i'm hoping this gives me the same service it's a pure fender classic all in one package easy to use has the bite when you need it, and mellow out for the softer ballads.

        Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Super Reverb 4X10 Guitar Combo Amp:

        The local Guitar Center had one of these in stock so I went with my guitar to put it to the test and WOW! The combination of the four ten-inch speakers, the warm tube sound pushed with 45 watts makes for a very versatile amp. I play jazz to heavy metal and after years of searching for a great amp I finally found an amp that handles effects well, and most importantly hits that "sweet spot" without having to turn the amp up to beyond loud (I played a gig with it the day I purchased it and it was so nice to get full and rich tone at lower volumes without forcing everyone else to turn up). This amp can definitely handle small room gigs to large outdoor gigs and that is very important to me. So if you want clean Fender tone, "super" reverb, and tasty tremolo too, I urge you to try this amp out. Well worth the money.

          I've longed for something better as a hobbyist. Working man with a family, hard to scrape the cash to get away from cheap solid states. Then I was blessed with the ability to purchase this gem. The tone that this baby produces is orgasmic to the ears, for hours I can sit in front of this baby and get lost in my soul. I play an american HSS start with a '70s fuzz pedal through this thing and I could not be more satisfied. You will not go wrong purchasing this amp, its amazing. Even my 10 yr old daughter took a double take and commented on how beautiful it sounds. It will be difficult to top this one.

            Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Super Reverb 4X10 Guitar Combo Amp:

            Im the type of guy that enjoys a clean tone with some reverb. I was on the fence with this amp and the twin. I feel like I made a solid choice. I plugged it in and let the tubes warm up for an hour and came back. Then I sat down, busted out my 60th anniversary strat and immediately became lost in the tones that this thing was producing.

            Be forewarned metal junkies this may not be your thing. However, if you are like me and and enjoy amazing clean tones then you will want to add this one to the arsenal . I bought condition 2 and still haven't been able to spot any flaws. If you like the blues, country or classic rock or 90's grunge then this amp is for you. The vibe and reverb circuits are amazing. They got the name on this one right because its super. The second Im done writing about this I'm going to play until my fingers bleed.

              Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Super Reverb 4X10 Guitar Combo Amp:

              I have the limited edition of this amplifier. AMAZING!! When you first get this amp, you need to have the tubes biased. Fender usually has them set at 22ma from the factory, which makes the amp distort when the volume is on about 4 and the volume is not real loud. Have the bias adjusted to between 32-40 ma (wherever sounds best to you, mine is set at 38ma) and I'd recommend a different set of power tubes too (JJ's are amazing), the preamp tubes are fine if theyre not microphonic, and it'll sing and sound awesome. For a reissue amp these are amazing if you get em set up right. I know it should be done from the factory, but lets face it, they put out WAY too many for the folks to keep up with how theyre set and everything. And rebiasing the amp and changing the power tubes wont affect the warranty on the amp itself. I love mine. Works great with all my pedals, TS9 and TS7 Tubescreamers for 2 different overdirve tones, Marshal Jackhammer for the heavy metal tones, delay, EH chorus, and a rotary speaker emulator and a Vox wah. The amp will do anything you want it to. Best amp I've ever played through.

                I've been playing through a Peavey Classic 50/212 for YEARS. Finally, a buddy of mine was selling his Super Reverb, so I swooped it up fast.

                I don't regret this purchase one bit. This amp takes pedals better than I've ever heard. And sounds great whether it's through single coils and humbuckers. If you use the vibrato channel, you have a 3-band EQ which really expresses your tone if you have your settings right. I HIGHLY recommend buying this amp or one of it's (siblings).

                I have been performing for 50yrs. I own and have owned too many amps over the years. This is my 3rd super and it is as good if not better than my past supers were. So all I can say is if a Great Pure Classic tube amp is what you want BUY THIS AMP .... these amp are work horses!!!!!!!!!!!
