Blackface Twin Reverbs are the most coveted versions of this amp.
Thanks, John Gilbert Matt Alcott Hi John, The Twin Reverb design has been through many iterations since its 1963 debut.
The amps Fender produced between 19 are known as “blackfaces” because of their black control panels, and their designs remained largely unchanged during this period.
To me they are loud, clean, blank slates to color with different guitars and pedals.
I’d appreciate any thoughts you might have on this amp.
For whatever reason, the engineers at Fender added seven additional components to the output stage, effectively turning it into a semi-cathode-biased output.
