Clear, deep and powerful.

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.

Features

  • 85 watts into 4 ohms of all-tube power
  • Both channels with reverb and tremolo
  • Custom channel with modified Bassman® tone stack
  • Quick gain onset and reduced negative feedback

Comments about Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb 85W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp with Celestion G12V-70s Speaker:

I have had the amp for about 5 weeks now, and like it better each time I play it. It exhibits the well known characteristics of the legendary Twin Reverb; remarkable clean sound at very loud volume levels, lush reverb and vibrato, and versatile tone manipulation. However, the modifications Fender has made to the preamps sets it apart from it's Blackface equivalent. The sound of both channels is warmer and more differentiated. The Custom channel tone stack in particular complements single coil guitars. Strats, Teles, Jaguars, and Jazzmasters seem like different guitars. Even the normal channel has a bit more midrange. There is none of the overall bright, ice-pick highs that many of contemporary Fender amps project. The Custom '68 evokes the amps of the Brownface era, in smoothness of both sound and response. It also sounds great at low volumes, and does not have to be set at ear-bleed levels to generate pleasing, complex and harmonically rich music. I play mostly Jazz, and this amp excels at referencing the music heard on 50's- early 60's Jazz guitar recordings.
