  • Premium practice amp

A legendary Fender guitar amplifier
The legendary Fender Princeton Reverb Amp of the 1960s was small, light, and moderately powered. Though intended for practice situations, the Princeton was capable of big tube tone, and Fender's world-class reverb and vibrato effects were the icing on the cake. From its inception 'til today, countless guitarists have chosen it as their go-to studio amp, crafting signature sounds with a stompbox or two feeding a simple miked-up Princeton. Today, original Princeton Reverb amps are prized collectibles, and becoming harder to find. The new '65 Princeton Reverb amp offers today's players all of the great tone and dynamics of the original in an affordable, roadworthy reissue. The robust 15-watt platform is a wise choice for creating tube tone in a small space, and even provides enough output for small gigs and rehearsals.

Studio stalwart
Here's a great example of an amp whose popularity and usefulness never went away - and now it's more popular than ever among guitarists! The '65 Princeton Reverb combines portabillity, tube tone, and outright vibe to make a classic package that gets the job done for a range of styles and applications. Studio session? This amp's 15-watt output puts it squarely in the favored small amp category that studio cats love: it's robust enough to move some air, but the wattage is low enough to let you crank it up and let that 2 x 6V6 tube power section really go to work. This is how the classic tones were put to tape, and it works!

Live licks
If you're playing in a smaller venue and want an amp that can dish out the tone sauce at moderate volumes while still keeping up with a drummer, the '65 Princeton Reverb is your guitar's best friend. It's got the wattage to do the job, while its great-sounding single 10" Jensen Special Design C-10R speaker is voiced perfectly to the amp. A compact design means you don't need a cube van to transport the '65 Princeton Reverb - it fits easily in your trunk or backseat. Once you plug and and play this amp onstage, you won't want to stop!

Premium practice amp
Sure, Fender made the '65 Princeton Reverb to handle the rigors of the road, with tough cabinet construction and a durable vinyl covering. But if you want an all-tube practice amp that gives you the same (or better) sound quality as your live rig, here's your ticket. Plug right in, turn it up, and roll back your guitar's volume for some fat clean tones, then dial up a little grit as you see fit. You also get great-sounding onboard reverb and vibrato for pulling out everything from surf to swamp. Putting a stompbox or two in front of this amp means hours of rewarding tone-tweaking... so be prepared!

Princeton Reverb

Let me just say I've had one of these for only a few months and have been nothing but impressed. The reverb and vibrato on this is amazing. Also it comes with a great fender warranty. The drive knob on mine got bumped and I sent it in under warranty and fender fixed it at no cost with little hassle. The tone on this thing is great to but if you need that extra crunch or lows to your guitar tone I definitely recommend picking up a overdrive or distortion pedal.

This is absolutely the best small amp you can get that has the classic Fender sound you know and love!!!

A Beautiful Amp

This Fender reissue is IMHO far better than even the original. This Princeton Reverb behaves quite a bit more like an old original Deluxe.I dont know why the guy who left a 1 star review for this amp did so, except that maybe he thought this amp was going to be like the 70's silverface Fenders that were so "'clean' they could have been used (and often were used) for Bass amps.This little Princeton Reverb is an anachronism (which i hope Fender has the good taste to keep building).It has the voice of early and Brittish Invasion rock n roll , bluesy riff based rock n roll. The long spring reverb alone is ebough reason to have one. But I like to Jump the channels with an ABY box, a Good vibe effect and maybe slight clean boost to heat'er up, for my favorite liquid guitar tones. Its amazing how guys will go on and on about Soldano,Buddah or Bogner, who have copied original Fenders so closely, and dump on Fenders. Maybe Fender should charge $3500.00. NO! forget I said that.
