Fender Twin-Amp Reviews
I have pre CBS first issue black face Fender Princeton Reverb which I have use live and miced up since the early 70's. With my 70's Tele's and Strats other guitarists rave about my sound. I never got to hear it other than on stage but it always inspired my playing. I also have a '72 silver face Fender Twin Reverb. It is LOUD and clean. It can only be used at certain venues. So recently I purchased two, yes two! becuase my sons play now too , Fender Twin Amps. They are a new breed of Fender tube amps with I think 17 tubes! The circuitry and design is actually far far superior to anything Fender did back in the 50s an 60s. I think the sound I get set on the low 25 watt setting is equal to the sound of my Princeton Reverb and some. I use a Strat with Texas pickups, a Tele with James Burton pickups, a top of the line Peavey with Dave Gilmore pickups, a 335 Gibson and a Les Paul with DiMazio's. All of these guitars bring their own character to the Fender Twin. It is warm, lyrical, has a bite too as well as a growl. It is a pure sound too, so Fenderish. I have not had any problems with these and I have recently used them on gigs at London's O2 where other artists also used them and raved about them. I also have a JImi Hendrix Plex reissue with Marshall 1969 cabs and of course that is a different sound and style. I LOVE LOVE these amps and their versatility. Check out their circuit and features for patching in outboard effects. Amazing!!! Only ever had to change a fuse after it was left on on stage for a day and night for a huge show!
Rather dissapointing after receiving 3 amplifiers from my supplier (not Dolphin)the first amp blew up...the second had only 50% of the tone pots working and after waitting many weeks for a replacement the third amplifier also has problems with treble, prescence and also the bright switch.
Fender UK were as helpful as possible but couldnt offer any useful remedy other than the unit appears to be faulty.
The old saying try before you but springs to mind!!!
I give it a 9 because there is always room for improvement, but do not let the number deter you from thinking that this is a quality amplifier. The versatility of sounds you can get from it is amazing, truly. I consider myself to have a good ear and I gig regularly in Chicago, so I have heard many amps. Maximizing the tube compression at 25 watts is what makes this amp great. You can get great natural tube break up that cannot be simulated. If you are on the fence about it, get off the fence on the Twin side!
