Description

Fender ’68 Custom Twin Reverb Amplifier
1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum “drip edge” grille cloth trim, the Twin Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the backline amp of choice for pros and amateurs everywhere. Clear, deep and powerful, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Twin Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.

The ’68 Custom Twin Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender’s late-’60s “silver- face” amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the “custom” channel has a modified Bassman tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. The ’68 Custom Twin Reverb’s dual 12″ Celestion G12V-70 speakers also deliver a more distinctively rock n’ roll flavor.

The ’68 Custom Twin is equipped with Celestion Speakers (V Type) for a more modern, punchy sound that breaks up nicely when pushed. Reduced negative feedback lends a more “touch-sensitive” feel, quicker break up and added harmonic richness. The shared tremolo on both channels adds to its versatility. Because of this the ’68 channels are wired in phase and can be blended for more tonal options, via A/B/Y box. “Custom” channel features a 50s Tweed “Bassman” tone circuit for more low mids and sooner breakup.
