You've heard the Fender '65 Princeton Reverb Guitar Combo Amplifier before. Lots of times, probably! It has appeared on literally thousands of classic recordings and has come to define one of the most essential sounds for electric guitarists.
Low Wattage Means Superior Tonal Control
The Fender'65 Princeton Reverb is a distinctly low-output amp, pushing 15 watts through a single 10-inch speaker. This makes it perfect for playing at home or in small, intimate live situations. Moreover, it makes it perfect for the recording studio, where you can crank up the Volume knob and summon forth the true all-tube tone -- without deafening yourself or your engineers.
Legendary All-Tube Circuit
The heart of the Fender '65 Princeton Reverb is the tube complement, which includes 3 x 12AX7s, 1 x 12AT7, 2 x 6V6s, and 1 x 5AR4 rectifier tube. Seven tubes to move 15 watts? That's why it sounds so sweet.
Of course, the equation wouldn't be complete without the Princeton's legendary Spring Reverb and Vibrato. These are the tones that you'll recognize the first time you plug it in: vintage modulations through and through, with tons of shimmer and character.
Hello Mr. Jensen!
The speaker inside stays true to vintage specs as well. Here you'll find a Jensen C10R, 8 ohm, 40 watt Speaker with a ceramic magnet. By employing a speaker with more than enough power rating to handle the output of the power amp, you're left with a speaker that can do a supreme job at reproducing the great tone of the amp.
C'mon, Don't Get an Old One
You could buy a janky old Fender '65 at a vintage shop and pay twice as much -- or you can get a new one, right out of the box, and enjoy it for many years to come.
