The Legendary '65 Twin Reverb
The Fender '65 Twin Reverb is a meticulous reissue of a true American classic. Whether your guitar has humbucking or single-coil pickups, this iconic 85-watt, all-tube combo amp serves up definitive clean tone that's perfect for rock, country, blues, jazz, fusion, and more. And it takes pedals splendidly. The Twin is devastatingly loud. Spanking clean to around "8" on its volume dial, it can go toe-to-toe with any drummer onstage, but it speaks with authority at any volume — beautifully chimey, glassy, and full-throated. Sonically, the '65 Twin Reverb reissue is based on Fender's classic 1965 Blackface circuitry, and it delivers the legendary sound you've heard on countless hit records.
Legendary tube tone, optimized for the modern player
Plug into the Fender '65 Twin Reverb combo guitar amp and you'll experience legendary tube tone with an unmistakable vintage vibe. Fender manufactured the Blackface Twin Reverb amp from 1963 to '67. From its venerable 85-watt AB763 quad-6L6 circuit to its inimitable spring reverb and tremolo, Jensen speakers, and tilt-back legs, the Fender '65 Twin Reverb reissue is every inch a classic, a veritable cornerstone of modern American music.
Fall in love with your pedals again
With four Groove Tube 6L6 output tubes in the engine room, the 65 Twin Reverb supplies copious clean headroom, delivering a hefty 85 watts into four ohms. Guitarists at Sweetwater love the way the Twin takes guitar pedals. Indeed, the Twin is considered by many to be the ultimate pedal platform. With the '65 Twin Reverb reissue, you can use your pedalboard to sculpt your tone — precisely, predictably, and at any volume.
The avatar of clean
The Twin has earned a reputation through the decades as the hardest working amp in show business. From its introduction in 1963, it has appeared on countless iconic recordings. By way of endorsement, tone purist Eric Johnson relies on his vintage '68 Silverface Twin (which still incorporated Blackface circuitry) for his clean rhythm guitar sound (switching to a vintage Plexi for dirty rhythm and leads). Many musicians here at Sweetwater own a Twin — either an original or reissue — and use it relentlessly. Over half a century and still going strong. The Fender '65 Twin Reverb: it's the avatar of clean.
