Nothing Rocks Quite Like a Fender Twin

Fender's '68 Custom Twin Reverb combo amp brings you everything you love about the classic Twin Reverb such as all-tube circuitry. But Fender went above and beyond to imbue the '68 Custom Twin Reverb with the character of the '60s original. Inside, you'll find custom-made Schumacher transformers, just like they used on the originals. The tube sockets are handwired, and Fender even reduced the negative feedback, which gives you exceptional touch sensitivity. No matter how you look at it, the '68 Custom Twin Reverb was made to play and perform like a classic.

Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb All-tube Combo Amplifier at a Glance:

Classic looks and design

Fender created the all-tube '68 Custom Twin Reverb combo amp as a tribute to the late-'60s Silverface amps. It's dressed up with the same style of faceplate and silver-turquoise grille cloth with aluminum trim. From the handwired tube sockets to the vintage-spec Schumacher transformers, the Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb delivers the vintage-vibed tone and feel you would expect.

Two amps in one

Fender designed the 2-channel '68 Custom Twin Reverb with two very different voices. The vintage channel delivers the classic Twin Reverb goodness you know and love. The new custom channel is based on a modified Bassman tone stack for big, fat tones. The Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb combo amp also lets you use the classic all-tube spring reverb and tremolo circuit on both channels.

Hot-rodded sound and response

Fender designed the custom channel of this all-tube combo amp with a modified tone circuit that delivers greater tonal flexibility when used with your favorite effects pedals. They also reduced the amp's negative feedback to give it increased touch sensitivity, and it also starts to overdrive faster. The Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb two 12" Celestion G12V-70 speaker that give it a definite rock 'n' roll flare.

Absolutely Super

Picked the guitar back up last year from a very long hiatus, went out and got a Strat & a nice solid state amp. Just wasn't getting the tone I remembered from so long ago, and bought this amp to see if it would make any difference. Wow. Absolutely blown away. The tone is rich and full, it responds to all the nuances, it's razor sharp without being thin and tinny, and when you get aggressive it responds with a hefty punch with a clarity that's just great. Now I know what my Strat was supposed to sound like.
5/5

Huge sound!

Twin #1 was bad right out of the box. Bad reverb circuit. It happens (with any brand). Two e-mails to tech support (thanks to Jason King & Matt Nelson), and 3 days later Twin #2 arrives. Who else provides that kind of service? Twin #2 is utter perfection. Huge clean sound and takes pedals indcredibly well. I had the 65 Twin reissue for a while and the Jensen speakers were like an ice pick in the ear. These Celestion speakers have a much smoother, rounded high end, far more pleasing to my ears. Another great amp and once again Sweetwater proves that their customer service is second to none. If it sounds like I am a big fan.......I am.

One Great Amp

I love the true vintage tones. As my first amp I couldn't ask for a better companion to my Ibanez SS300 This thing blows the roof off the house, scares the dog to death and makes the wife scream.
Music background: Just getting started

Great sounding amp

The cleans are just awesome! Vintage side with a strat is very vintage, warm and punchy. The Custom side takes pedals like a champ! One of the best sounding amps I ever owned! my search is over!

2 for 1

This amp is like having two amps when I chain together the custom channel with the vintage channel the power increased there's hundreds of tonal options I would compare it like one channel= single pick up and both together would be like a humbucker pick-up. I've done it for 6 months and have had no problems. The amp is the cleanest and clearest even compared to my 73 silverface twin by far the best amp fender ever put out think I'll buy a second.
