Timeless Tone from a Legendary Amp!

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.

Ryan Adams tries out the Fender Princeton Reverb:


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.

True Reverb

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.

Features

- 1 x 8 ohm 10-inch 40-watt 8 ohm Jensen C10R transducer
- 1 x Channel input
- Blackface Control Panel
- Six Silver-Top Numbered Knobs
- Volume, Treble, Bass, Reverb, Speed, Intensity knobs
- Black Tolex Covering
- Classic Silver Grille Cloth
- Cover and 2-Button Footswitch (Reverb and Vibrato) Included

For that vintage vibe, it's hard to top a Princeton Reverb. From the living room to the recording studio to the live gig, its tone does the talking!

Fender '65 Princeton Reverb Guitar Amp

The original was used on countless hits over the years, and the '65 Princeton Reverb is easily versatile enough to go from your living room to the recording studio to small gigs. It's got the vintage vibe that Fender die-hards know and love, but the '65 Princeton Reverb isn't only for the old-school guys who played 'em 30 or 40 years ago--it's for anybody who craves top-notch tube tone, naturally dynamic clean and overdriven tones, and unmistakable long-spring Fender Reverb and tube Vibrato.

A historically significant amp--the originals fetch more than $2,000 these days--and it's as valid as ever in today's musical world. Just listen for yourself!

Overall: There are a few Princeton's out right now, a few 65's and a few 68's ... a few with 10's and a few with 12's... This may be the right one for you! The reason for the 10" is simple....volume. This same amount of wattage run through a 12" is soo very much louder. Now, that should be a good thing right? Maybe not. The 10" allows you to run the amp in it's sweet spot. About halfway. At that volume, you get a good amount of volume, but not ringing ears later on. It (more importantly) allows you to run the amp at it's optimum. Meaning, the tubes are humming, the speakers working, everything is up to speed. It's sounds soooo very nice! There's a reason for 7 tubes in a single channel, low-wattage amp with a 10" speaker, and you'd near to hear it in person to find out. IMHO this is the best sounding amp that exists, and I have played many quality amps. Also, forget about people complaining about the 10" speaker "farting out" because that speaker warms up to be your favorite once it is broken in. Mine changed dramatically after only 45 minutes of heavy play. I more than highly recommend this amp. I'll say one thing. IF you want that "punk rock" classic high gain distortion the 68' sound beats the 65'. But the 65 does everything else better. Buy this amp! You can't do better.

Overall: What a fabulous amp! You can't beat that Fender sound, and even with the smaller size and somewhat lower wattage it has the sparkling clean tone that we all love. Portable, powerful, and worth every penny.
