Great amp with classic Blackface tone in the clean channel and a bit more gritty in the drive channel. Quarter-power switch is a great feature that, while at low volumes isn't too noticeable, makes a big difference when the amp's cranked. Tremolo is good and the tube driven effects loop and reverb are great. Would have been nice if the stock tubes were of a bit higher quality but it's only the 2 12AX7As (reverb and loop drivers) that were disappointing.

Best Uses

  • Recording

I use the Pro Reverb in a high-school jazz group. I began using this amplifier immediatly after it being re-tubed, and was very impressed with its clean tones for Jazz and Blues music. Paired with a p-90 in neck position or a Humbucker split between Neck and Bridge, this am creates mellow and lush cleans. A treble pickup tone or a tone based in Highs however is less satisfactory. I find tones with mid's scooped or high treble to be abrasive and harsh from this amp, however with an appropriate amount of bass and mids, a thick treble tone can be found and enjoyed.
I do however find little to no use in the dirty channel. I initially perceived this channel to serve the purpose of a high boost, or transparent overdrive, but low levels of gain are met with a again harsh and crackly drive. As you increase the gain to distortion/fuzz levels, the tone becomes fat and cumbersome. This however seems to be not a HUGE issue to me, due to the fact that not many people would play through a Blackface amplifier (aside from perhaps a Super Sonic,) and expect a rich and sparkling heavy gain or clean boost. This is what effects pedals are for! :D
All in all, this amp offers a great clean base in which to build a tone of your own upon. It's dense reverb controls and spacey headroom offers a vast area of space to explore tonally.

Fat cab, vintage sound

By 

from Petaluma, CA

I like everything about this amp with one minor exception: the Gain channel has too much overdrive -- any setting above '2' is total distortion.

Perfect full tube tone!

By 

from Dayton, OH

Great tube sound for blues, I had a Hot rod 212 and never got the full rich sound I wanted. This had it from the first note. 1/4 switch has great sound and perfect for band practice

THAT TONE-One good example-

By 

from Petaluma, CA

Been using Fender amps since early '60s. This Pro Reverb 'All Tube' seems to have the sweet tone ability to get it from my '53 Tele! Two chan - clean & dist. plus 1/4 power, should cover most any gig situation. Nice features in back - bias adj. panel, send/receive, amp in/out, 4-button footswitch. Heavy maple-ply cabinet, and a good ol' Jensen speaker - my sentiments exactly!!

it has the best distortion and the best clean

By 

from Undisclosed

The distortion rocks like no other. And with the click of a button the nicest sharpest clean. Plus stunning reverb and great acoustic effects.
