Sounds great the tone is unbelievable
I've owned a lot of vintage gear. This amp will break in very nicely. The tone is there. However, an amp has to played to get seasoned. The reverb, vibrato, and clean is superb.
Add a good tube screamer, and you're done. If tone is your thing, then this is your amp. it also looks impressive. I've heard people complain about the weight, but it's worth the trouble. 85 watts of pure tone = 85 lbs.
Excellent amplifier. Clean sound, excellent power for the size, nothing else, just outstanding.
This is great
Great sound but loud, also heavy.
You can't believe the tonal purity of this Twin.
Not sterile or void of tone....but a rich harmonic fullness unsurpassed
By any other combo
The cleans are legendary....sweet, clear, rich, warm hypnotizing....
The range of sound is huge and this baby sounds awesome at 2 as it does at 10
The 2 Jensen's have great full balance and sound super 3 dimensional
Bright switch gives you another option for shimmer or balanced highs
Sensitivity to pick attack...wow
Put a Boss Super OD , Klone Centaur, big Muff in front and you discover creamy smooth tonal bliss.
I have a whole bunch of amps and I never get tired of hearing the beautiful tone of this allstar!
Highly recommend and a must have for every lifetime guitar player.....
Didn't think it had the power with the cleanest, this is better than ever
This amp is pretty amazing its clear and really loud. It's also very warm and responsive because of the tubes. This amp is great for studio work as well as playing live on stage just mic it up to your PA system. I use this amp for everything from classic rock, to punk, to funk music.
I have a lot of Fender Amps from the 60's and this one is a perfect match. Great amp at any price.
this is a great sounding amp
Bought the Twin Reverb 65 reissue (got the last one) and the professionalism Ive experienced prior was again on full display from initial phone call till product arrival at my residence. Packed with care and just as advertised. Thanks to B Martinez and the rest of the crew at Sweetwater. ( you can give Fed Ex a nod too)
I've always known that Fender makes great amps but when I first played through this amp I was blown away. I was very pleased with the clarity of this amplifier. This amp does one thing (give a nice clean tone), and it does it well. I highly recommend this amp to anyone who is looking for a nice clean tone!
There is a reason why this is one of the best amps of all time. It has superb sound and it is very customizable at the same time.
Didnt understand the hype behind this beauty until we decided to invest in it.
Tone is amazing!!! There's a reason why its almost on every tech ryder we've been sent.
Great investment for us and would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for that clean guitar tone and ryder friendly guitar amp.
Watch out for the weight tho..
My rating was posted as a 3 star, not the 5 that I originally rated the AMP. The amp and what you put on its output are two different areas. This AMP is still the CLEANEST American Tube Guitar Amplifier, in my opinion, ever made. And, as I said, the speakers or whatever you want to put on the output is outside the AMP. I use Eminence Texas Heat on all my mid-power amps as they fit my almost 60 year old rock and roll ears perfectly. The Jensen's are perfect for the lower power rigs that I use, depending on the mood I in. But this '65 Twin Reverb Amp is still the cleanest Mid-Level amp made
This is a wonderful amp. I bought a used model over a year ago, and I amp amazed at the tone this amp can provide. It accepts pedals extremely well, or you can go bare and have a crystal clear clean sound.
As a warning, this amp is very heavy. However, with a hand cart, castor wheels, or good ole' fashioned elbow grease, this amp will not disappoint.
This Amp lives up to its name it is a super clean and powerful amp I
have had two twins a cbs model from 1977 and a reissue 1965
Twin 1965 is a great to things of importance her take heed the amp chassis is very heavy therefore pull it if you get a used one the four nuts are welded to the chassis and they tend to come lose
Mine had that problem but fixed it by using nuts and new screws also only down side why they didnt put Casters on this baby I imagine
because original did have any in the year fender brought this 1964
I bet I am on the money the one I had I got used for 600.00
guy who had it didnt know what he had she is a sweet amp and strong those 4 6L6 dont just hang there for nothing I used to Play my Jazzmaster through oooooh what a sweet sound anothe good one 1965 DeLuxe Reverb its little sister compliment 2 6V6 very sweet 20 Watts I will write a review on that too Eddie Kujawa
This is a great amp. I bought a used model of this, and I have yet to be disappointed. Crisp and clean tone. The clarity and delicacy of this amp are to die for. However, don't buy if you're looking for high gain. Though, if used with the right pedals, one can get any sound they desire out of this.
If you want CLEAN this is the amp to have. The problem I find with most other amps is the gain volume control. Most amps have two channels, clean and crunch execpt they put a gain knob on the clean channel side???? Makes no sence to me...more gain...more distortion. When I want distortion I'll add my own and the amount I desire.
This amp is perfect for no distortion noise except natural tube distortion on higher volumes.
If you want clean....get this amp you won't be sorry.
Fantastic amp my word I used this amp since 1983 and still have it Play a tribute to Chuck Berry and Elvis
which I believe James Burton still uses. It has a smooth and clean deap sound
I bought this amp after reading about some of the other amps out there in the price range and decided on the fender twin reverb. Several factors were involved in my purchase decision...price, transportability, reliablity, power, tone, sound, etc....the Fender twin was an amp I played thru when I first started plucking some strings and the feel, sound and power has stayed with me for 30 years.
I have mine plugged into a marshall 4x10 cabinet and the stack is as impressive in looks and sound as any other combination out there. Hooked up a flange and metal distortion stomp box between my Les Paul standard and the amp and I can hand out any metal desired! Awesome amp, awesome sound and power and GREAT customer service from the best music gear company out there. This amp and this company can do it all and it wont kill your wallet. Get the twin, its worth it and then some!
The 65 classic sounds and feels like an original I played when I was a kid, seems like the more and longer you play it through the night the better it sounds
Well, you want the cleanest amp ever made, buy the '65 Twin Reverb. Such a beautiful sounding amplifier, I couldn't be happier with it. The only downside is it is very heavy and has no casters, but casters don't do anything to sound. The reverb unit is the original Fender reverb that produces a lovely full sound.
We all know what awesome sounds this amp produces. However, you would think that with the royal brand name, decades of service, and loyalty to quality merchandise, QUALITY CONTROL would be at the top of their to-do list.
I bought this amp because the 68' Twin Reverb RI was a **** up and breaks when you take it off standby. I've heard of a lot issues with the reverb circuit in these amps, so I did a thorough initial amp test leading up to the great reverb test. This amp sounds amazing on both channels. Even playing through a Les Paul this amp is the best clean sound you can get. When I got to the reverb channel.... Microphonic sounds all up and down the control knob.
I called sweetwater tech, after getting past all the Apple Products Tech lines(???), I got in contact with a guy who told me Fender most likely put the reverb tank in backwards and to flip it 180 degrees. Backwards? Yeesh.
I called Fender Tech and right off the bat they told me "sometimes the tubes put in these amps are not up to par, and it's definitely the preamp tube that handles the reverb circuit". Understandable, tubes aren't perfect, and that defines the microphonic sound that I'm hearing. The tech hooked me up with the nearest licensed Fender service shop to have the tube swapped under warranty. Sweet.
An annoyance rather than a big deal, but with such an expensive piece of equipmonk, you'd think they would be thoroughly tested before sending them out to reduce service being needed right out of the box. Don't rush production :)
PS. Require a signature for delivery, or else they'll just leave a giant expensive box somewhere outside of your house.
'65 TWIN REISSUE
First off, I'm an old (63 yrs.) prog rocker with a stage band background, so assess
my comments accordingly.
The sound is, well, Fender-esq, which translates to 2 main characteristics:
"Clear as a bell", and "blank canvass".
Clear as a bell:
If you're a fan of the classic Fender sound, you've come to the right place.
All of the Fenders I've owned in the past were of the hand wired variety, but
they sound the same. I've checked the schematic (yup, I'm that nerdy) and the
circuits are very similar, sans the boost and overdrive circuits, hence the 85
watts with headroom as opposed to 100 watts without. The power supply is also different. The"normal" channel is a thing of beauty. I just wish it had that gorgeous Fender reverb. With it, that channel is a jazzman's' dream.
This is a tube amp so it does have character of its' own. It does not,
however get in the way of anything you might play through it, and with 85
watts, it's plenty loud. I love the speakers, but that's always a personal
thing. To me, they sound very close to the OEM speakers that were in past
Why a 4.5? The reverb had a runaway condition that Sweetwater very quickly
repaired, all the while staying in touch with me by phone and email. A 12AU7
was substituted for the existing reverb drive tube. The whole process took a
week, including shipping both ways. Sweetwater took good care of me. The only
other nit to pick is the aforementioned "normal channel" configuration.
When I was considering a new amp I asked a buddy of mine who owns a pro audio
company, if you saw 2 guys coming to your venue, one had a Twin and the other
had a stack (I won't name it, but use your imagination) which one would you be
looking forward to working with? I decided on the Fender.
Great amp - does all that it says it does. The clean is simply the best in the business, a one-of-kind sound. High marks in all categories except one: I wish the Twin had an Effects Loop, so I could take that wonderful Clean sound and color it with my effects pedals. I know I can still use pedals by running guitar directly into the pedalboard, and take the pedalboard OUT, into Channel One input on the Twin. But that's not ideal, because in order to change back to the pure Twin sound without pedals, I have to unplug the pedalboard and run the guitar directly into the amp. An amp this good should have maximum capabilities, which should include an Effects Loop. I was hoping that with the re-issue, Fender would've added the Loop. I really believe they missed an opportunity with the re-issue. So 1/2 point off my rating. Otherwise, the best clean amp anywhere
When I first started playing I was playing on a simple solid state fender amp. I upgraded to this after seven years and could not be any happier. The sound is amazing and you can get what you need whether you are playing indoors or out. The only thing I didn't like is how awkward it was when I had to carry it. Other than that, it is an excellent purchase.
Great amp for this closet musician. Ampliphies all the noise that I can muster and then some. I bought this amp for the genuine tremolo effect. "Rumble" sounds like "Rumble". It comes with a foot switch that controls that. If you are looking for any over drive or distorition, you will not find it on this amp. This amp is super clean. Would be great in the studio for recording. For distorition I added a Fulltone 69 pedal, (a clone of the JMI Professional Mark II.) The gain can be controled with the volume on your guitar. Perfect combination if you ask me. I am happy I purchased this amp. It is clean and reliable. If you require effects, heck just add some great pedals. I highly reccomend the Fultone 69 for distortion and sustain. Keep it simple.
well, i gave this amp a 4 not a 5,not because of the sound, because it sounds amazing, i love it. but because of the fact that only a month after having it it started to malfunction. decently loud crackling sounds started to occour after about an hour warming up, and it was definately somthing that would pick up in recording. i brought it to the best amp tech in houston and am waiting to get it back, but i am in the studio, supposed to be recording, and i am ampless. i am very displeased with the situation and was wondering if anyone has heard of this happening before? also i did not buy this from sweetwater, although i should of cause i have bought gear from you before and you guys are quite possibly the best damn company ive ever delt with, got it from f***ing guitar center, who has almost no product knowledge, and has been no help to me even though i bought a 200$ pro coverage on the amp. thanks, let me know.
The 65" Twin Reissue is as good as it gets for an all tube amp. Sounds as good as it did in 65. Clean is super clean, reverb is in a league of its own. Still as heavy and still gets as hot as it did in the 60's. Will always be my favorite. No equal found yet.
Man, I gotta tell ya. This amp is such a clean burner it is creepy. I am currently building the AB763 circuit so I can have twin twin's in my 4amp "stereo" setup. I'm glad that Fender took the time to put out their new version of the '65 which, as us old farts know set the standard in clean.
However, the Jensen's in this mode tend tol break up in the lower frequency ranges. I was going to switch to my favorite speakers, Eminence Patriot Texas Heats, when I took this out of the box, but decided to give the Jensen's a hard ride and, alas, they failed me. However, I have my shop. so I can mod this amp. I think this is still the cleanest amp going, even with whatever new mods Fender has had to use due to the passage of time, but we all have our own taste and, for me, I gotta have my Texas Heats.
