OVERVIEW

All the scorching power you could hope for, with pure tube tone.

Look inside the Fender Twin Amp and you can see 'em in there, glowing with that warm, rich, physical juice—a broad river of power to carry your guitar's tone. We're talking 100% tube signal path running 100 huge watts. We're talking classic Fender tone with tube reverb and tremolo. A pair of the same 12" Eminence speakers found on the '65 Twin Reverb crank out bell-like tones from the Blackface-style normal channel and thick, bold lead sounds from the overdrive channel. 1/4-power switch lets you cook without blasting the walls down. Effects loop and 4-button footswitch included.

FEATURES
  • 100% valve signal path
  • Tube reverb and tremolo
  • 100 watts
  • 2 - 12" Eminence speakers
  • 2 channels
  • 4-button footswitch
  • 1/4-power button
  • Full-featured effects loop

If you could only have one amp for the rest of your life, this would be the one to have. Order today.

The Twin Amp delivers 3-D cleans and unbelievable driven tone. If you want a pro-quality combo that excels in classic rock or blues tone, this is the amp. Screaming humbuckers or soft-spoken single coils, both sound great through this amp. As others have stated, you have to invest a few minutes to understand how to use the controls, but that time spent will pay big dividends! The Twin Amp loves effects and sounds best running them right into the clean channel or through the effects loop - I almost never use the overdrive channel. This is not a bedroom amp - even at 1/4 power it will rattle the windows. Sounds marginal when forced to play at low volume - that's not what it was made to do...needs to be played at least half-way up the dial to really start to sing... but if you have the opportunity to play it wide open at either 1/4 or full power...WOW! Bottom line - spend the money on this amp...you will be glad you did. No, I don't work for Fender!

I tried one of these out at home from a local shop. It seems like it would be the ideal fender combo but I'm sorry to say that as far as the distortion channel goes it is just ok sounding. The clean channel is wonderful as this is really what fender amps are known for. The "twin" is a great concept w/two channels and 100 watts. I didn't hear a tremendous difference in volume between the full power and 1/4 settings either. It seems to me that distortion channels on fenders is just not there "backyard". I've tried many (almost all) of the current line of Fender tube amps and they just don't have a "focused" high gain sound. Clean channels are usually great sounding. The only exception might be the Supersonic amp. If you want a thick sweet dirty sound better look elsewhere. I tried a variety of guitars through it including a Gibson V, Strat, and a Tele. The Fender Twin Amp did not impress me.

BEST AMP EVER. AMAZING CLEAN CHANNEL

By Alex N

from Seattle, Washington

This is easily the best amp I've ever played. I've owned one for about 4 years now and it is just superb. I could see some people preferring the drive channel of another amp better (I don't), but the clean channel on this amp is just untouchable. Nothing beats it. I've played (and owned) a lot of amps throughout my career and nothing comes close (except maybe a couple other fender amps, but this one is easily my favorite).and the reverb channel, WOW! I love this amp and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

monster amp

By Jake the bass 808

from Honolulu, HI

This amp is killer for playing any genre of music. Put your favorite distortion pedal in front of the clean channel and you have a killer metal machine, and switch to the amp's gain channel and you have a bluesy SRV style overdrive that's not too heavy. The reverb and tremolo knobs are there if you're into that, and the effects loop can be adjusted and controlled by the foot switch. Some say this is not an amp for metal, but only because you can't get extreme distortion straight from the amp, and that's what pedals were invented for anyway. 100 watts of pure tube power will blow your mind no matter what style of music you play. You can spend way more for a half stack, but for the price and power of this monster you won't need to.

GREAT!!! but earlier versions were better

By musical alchemist

from Caribean coast

i own one of these but find myself using my 85' evil twin due to its better quality speakers. i have had to change out the tubes in this amp twice in one year, yet on my "evil twin" i have only changed one tube and the rest are original since 85'. other than that it feels as if there is less controll of sound. overall, if you have an original made in the u.s.a. fender this amp will be lacking hard core, but if you have only used mesa boogie and marshal amps this fender twin will win you over. but for the price... buy a used vintage fender silverface or black face or the evil twin.

I found my Home!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Ive spent thousands of dollars and to countless hours searching for the right amp, when all I had to do was plug into this one. I'm giving it fives across the board because of what its given me... Peace at Last!!! Ive owned mostly Mesa gear to date. Every boogie amp I've owned functioned flawlessly. All had more than a few GREAT sounds to offer, but none kept me from searching for that thing I couldn't put my finger on. THIS AMP DID. If I ever buy another amplifier, It'll be another pro tube twin. Thank you Fender!

Just a Couple Problems

By Guildguy-8N7j2

from Garfield, NM

This amp is fantastic with just a couple or so problems. First is that this amp is subject to microphonics. This can be dealt with by only using low microphonic tubes such as Tungsols, Sinos, or Sovtecs. Another thing is that there is a weakness in the effects loop which disables the entire thing if that darned transistor goes out, which leads me to the last thing which is not an amp thing. Make sure there is a Fender Service shop near you or you will pay the freight when you send it away to have the bug worked out. If you live way out as I do, buy from a local vendor so you can drive it there for repairs. Fender is fantastic when it comes to both customer support and honoring their guarantee on their high end products. If you play rock, blues, or country, Fender is the man when it comes to the best bang for your buck.

Rawkin' amp

By The Barron of Blues

from Saskatchewan

Great amp, outstanding clean channel, great reverb and trem, gain-channel is good (rockin' but dosent get too heavy), the 1/4 output switch is a great thing to have, suprised ther isn't a recourding line out or something, if it had that and a D.I. line out it would be very close to perfect. tone is amazing (mine is pre grovetube powertube era - still fender tubes) but i think the new mfgd tubes should sound every bit as good. If you want a fender buy this amp - if your looking for a heavy sound buy a marshall.

Sweet!!

By Soundbytz

from Staten Island, NY

I bought this amp when they were running their 20% off deal in October, so the price was right. So paying a great price for it The amp has exceeded my expectations. Great tone from all channels. The clean channel working with peddles produces great results. The 25 / 100 watt switch is a nice feature. As all Fender Amps it is built tough. I can see this amp as one I'll use for many years. If you want a great powerful amp this is the one!

Gigged for many years with this amp...

By Pilcher

from Ohio

My only complaint EVER about this amp has been the weight- it is about 80lbs! Gigged-out three nights a week for many years with this amp (Pro Tube 2001 model), so I was always on a quest to find the same amp in a smaller package because, frankly, I'm a musician and lazy by nature. (I did try the Pro Tube Pro Reverb and did not like as much as the Twin). I was sick of hauling it around. I've owned a Vibro King, which sounded great but was also too heavy and not nearly as versatile as the Twin. I kept wanting to buy into the idea that since the Vibro King was a PTP amp, there was no way the Twin could sound better. But it did to me. I also went through three Deluxe Reverbs- two silverfaces and a reissue. The silverfaces were both retubed, blackfaced, etc, and none of them were nearly as versatile or sounded as good to me as the Twin. So I sold them all. I will NEVER sell that Twin. A couple of things about this amp I've found: It comes from the factory biased cold. I always biased it a little hot. Went through tubes a little quicker, but tone is worth it, isn't it? Also, there are a couple of ribbon cable wiring harnesses in the amp where oxidation will build up on the connections- this happens to all electrical connections that aren't hard-wired or soldered. Unplug and reseat connections a couple of times to clean oxidation off every few years. Probably not an issue if you don't gig steady with it. I found the distortion channel to be excellent in this amp once it is biased a little hotter than specs. Fender biases all of their amps cold. I personally used the distortion channel all the time, as well as a Tonebone Hot British and Tubescreamer through the clean channel. I used the effects loop for delay and a clean boost pedal. The only other amp I like as much, which seems to take pedals just as well, but sadly can't hang volume-wise, is my silverface Princeton Reverb. It's the closest thing to a Twin in a little package I've found. (Much warmer than a Deluxe). It's hard to say which one I love more, but it's easy to decide which one I feel more comfortable and confident playing-out with and depending on. It's the Twin. For clarification- the distortion channel easily exceeds the gain of a Tubescreamer. However, the Tonebone Hot British has more gain on tap than the Twin distortion channel. (Used pedal for a couple of the heavier 3rd set stuff). The reverb and tremelo are also great on this amp. Comparable to my Princeton. However, when 25 watt 1/4 power switch is engaged, the tremelo and reverb are not as deep and lush as at full power. With the number of features available on this amp, I don't know why anyone would choose a Twin Reverb Reissue over the Pro Tube Twin.

Great Clean Amp

By chuy_delira

from Mexico

I was a Marshall fan until I heard this thing, It really impressed me how loud this amp can be without distorting or making any funny noise. The Amp is pretty heavy itself, but it`s worth its weight in gold.
