Get All the Tone of the '68 "Silverface" Twin Reverb -- And More!

Head back to 1968 with the Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb guitar combo amplifier! A re-issued Custom Series release of the famous "silverface" amplifier, today's '68 Custom Twin Reverb pays tribute to Fender's groundbreaking 1968 model. This Twin gives you all the tube-driven tone of the original -- plus a few modern mods.

See how zZounds Guitar Expert, Justin, achieves his tone:


Twin Powers, Activate: 85 Watts Through Two 12" Speakers

The '68 Custom Twin Reverb is distinguished by its two 12-inch Celestion speakers that move a powerful 85 watts of sound. This puts the power rating on this amp in the perfect "sweet spot" where it can be equally versatile for live and studio situations.

Shimmering Cleans and Classic Tube Crunch

The '68 Custom Twin Reverb has a pure and shimmering clean tone at the low end of the gain stage, but can get quite menacing once you open it up a bit. In addition to having far more power, this amp yields an overall lusher, richer sound than the '68 Custom Deluxe or the '68 Princeton Reverb re-issues.

Four Discrete Inputs On Two Channels

The '68 Custom Twin Reverb is a true 2-channel amplifier with "Custom" and "Vintage" sections. Each section has two 1/4-inch inputs that can be used individually or in tandem, giving you a total of FOUR inputs on this amp.

The "Custom" section has basic Volume, Treble, and Bass knobs to shape your perfect tube sound. Over in the "Vintage" section, you've got Volume, Treble, Bass, Reverb, Speed, and Intensity knobs to play with. These last three knobs allow you to control the legendary tube-driven Reverb and Tremolo sound that this amp is known for.

Tubes For Miles

The '68 Custom Twin Reverb gets its distinctive sound from 4 x 12AX7 and 2 X 12AT7 preamp tubes. 4 x 6V6 power tubes amplify this vintage sound push its notably loud 85 watts of power. The dual 12-inch Celestion G12V-70 speakers can deliver all the volume needed for more intimate and un-mic'd live situations, but also mic up beautifully in the studio when you want to capture the unique sound of this amp on record forever.

Eternally Cool "Silverface" Design

1968 was also definitely the year that Fender nailed a truly timeless aesthetic, creating a look that has stood the test of time. The black textured vinyl covering is contrasted with a silver-turquoise grille cloth that immediately achieves a classic look. Meanwhile, the famous aluminum drip edge grille cloth trim that looks as distinguished onstage as always. The blue jewel pilot light glows as beautifully as ever, while the skirted control knobs pop with their elegant nickel-plated caps.

Product Description

1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was modern. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim, the Twin Reverb received a fresh 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 Fender '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(R) 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(R) G12V-70 speakers also deliver a more distinctively rock 'n' roll flavor.

"Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb-Amp"
Overall: Crisp crystal sound rugged and powerful. I have read online some comments about the reverb. Hum will go away if the tank RCA connectors face to the front of the amplifier. Mine came backwards (oops QC). All weird hum and funky noises will go away with a puff of Deoxit D5 in the tube sockets. Please be aware that there are lethal voltages present in most of the components, even though has being powered off.
Style of Music: Blues, Rock ,psychedelic.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "68 custom twin reverb. Like the twin but with better tone!"
Overall: This amp is wonderful. I've owned several tube amps and a few solid state and digital. I've played through thousands more. This has the tone of the original twin, with the addition of another channel that is in between a baseman and twin, and luscious reverb and vibrato. Handles pedals well, better than the original twin, and is more dynamic and expressive than the original twin. It kicks ass for blues, jazz, rock, country, and even metal with a distortion pedal. I got great metal tones with an ehx the glove od and a soul food od for a little more grit (only $120 total) and I have owned a triple rectifier. In short, it's like the twin but more expressive and dynamic. Great blues and rock and jazz amp and metal amp with a pedal or two. Good for country, but if you are hardcore clean country guy, the original twin is slightly brighter voiced and slightly twangy-ger. Cons: heavy, and some vintage amp thumping sounds when standby switch used, depending on the power source. But it is a vintage amp.
Style of Music: Everything. But mostly blues, hair metal, and jazz fusion.
