Original glass tubes & speakers. Fully-serviced and power cord replaced (so you don't have to).

This used Fender Twin Reverb Silverface from 1970 is about as iconic as a guitar amp can get - one that defines entire generations of sound. Made in the USA in Fullerton, California. Here with the original pair of 12" Fender Special Design speakers produce a full sound with up to 85 watts of power at 8 ohms.

In Very Good condition, it has some wear to its tolex cover and a small tear in the grille cloth (see photos). All cosmetic and no impact to functionality. Gives it a great vintage vibe.

Recently serviced an inspected by a vintage Fender Amp specialist who services a majority of the 60's / 70's gear of working musician's here in the Orlando area. He's affiliated with and operates out of the best luthier shop in the area - The Guitar Factory (they also make custom acoustic guitars by hand; one notable user is Jimmy Buffet).

Original glass tubes and speakers. Super clean with tons of headroom, the Twin Reverb is known for being incredibly pedal-friendly, and with its two channels - Normal and Vibrato - you have plenty of tonal options and some effects available. Your pedals will shine from the modern day to your vintage Big Muff fuzz, everything works very well with this amp. The Normal channel has two inputs, a Bright switch, Volume, Treble, Middle, and Bass controls. The Vibrato channel, meanwhile, has the same four and Bright switch, as well as Reverb, Speed, and Intensity controls.

Used by countless guitarists over the decades, from Kurt Cobain to John Lennon, the Fender Twin Reverb Silverface is one to definitely try if you're looking for that iconic and exemplary Fender tone.

Don't confuse this amp with the Silveface with the Master volume control (or secondary volume control, extra knob). The post '71 amps take a change for the worse as typical of gear in the era (you want to be close to the 60s to get that tone for a more affordable price).

This amp was purchased directly from the original owner. Once plugged in, one of the clearest amps I've heard.
