They're awesome amps, they have great tone, I would go for it.I happen to have a 1976 Fender Super Twin, and its got amazing cleans...
I haven't tested a reissue one but I'm sure it's made to sound just like the original. Jimmy '65 reissue is probably a better sounding amp than the 1970's ones in any case - the old "Blackface" Fender amps from the early to mid sixties were renowned for their stellar clean tones and even breakup as they start to saturate.Just a quick vid I made of my 72 Twin Reverb, I think it sounds cool..still needs a few tweaks and should be ready for sunday when I can do part 2 cranked!You Tube - Vintage Fender Twin Reverb - Part 1 I have a 69 sf I am working on or selling, I don't know what the owner wants to do yet. Oh man, I dislike this modding of these old Fenders. If you can't get a sound from it as is, it's probably not the amp for you (I mean that figuratively, bfcg, not you personally). Torres took out the old tagboard and who knows what else and turned it into a noise machine.Reverb on it is great, the rest of it is another story. Mods that don't involve drilling or cutting are ok, in that they can usually be reversed and don't generally damage things beyond repair. It went back and forth to torres at the owners expense more than twice across country. Just a quick vid I made of my 72 Twin Reverb, I think it sounds cool..still needs a few tweaks and should be ready for sunday when I can do part 2 cranked!But with the amp you're talking about, the only mod I'd do is to 'blackface' it, then restore it to otherwise-original spec. The guy finally gave up on it and it became a big paperweight for the last 5 or 6 years. I want to rebuild it back to it's original specs and possibly blackface it... Have any of you guys (or gals) had much experience with 'em?
Ive been looking for a nice amp for a while now and I must say this one's tone is simply brilliant.I worked my behind off all summer to save for rig ugrades, so I really need some other opinions before i make this kind of investment =D Thanks In advance folks! My uncle has a 70's one and its tone is simply superb.I haven't tested a reissue one but I'm sure it's made to sound just like the original. Jimmy I had a guitar teacher that was a fanatic about them.The Seventies Twins were actually designed to run a lot cleaner and louder - as a consequence they tend to be a bit thinner sounding than the Blackface Fenders They are pretty much a benchmark tone monster.Having said that, I chose the Vox AC30 Custom Classic over a Twin - simply because I prefer the intrinsic Vox tone - give one a try if you can - very different than a Twin, but again, an absolute classic Tone monster, and the new Vox's are very good indeed!Cheers David I have a '65 Reverb Reissue (1x12, 22wtts) and would take the '65 Reverb Reissue Twin over the Standard Twin for tone and the awesomne tube reverb.
