Fender Twin Reverb Black Face

Product images are for illustrative purposes only.

The Twin Reverb was first introduced during the blackface era of Fender amplifiers which was from 1963 to 1967. During this time the amplifier's output was rated at 85 watts into a 4-ohm speaker load.

The so-called blackface amplifiers have black faceplates, black tolex covering on the cabinet, and neutral to slightly amber tinted silver sparkle grill cloth with a small ribbed rectangular pattern.

Twin Reverb amplifiers came standard with "tilt back legs" which allowed the amplifier to be tilted at an angle backwards, so the speakers faced at a more upward angle, promoting better distribution of their output to an audience when placed on a low stage.

The circuit used is commonly known as the AB763 circuit. Fender Twin Reverb amplifiers use four output tubes, of the 6L6GC type. They use six preamp tubes, consisting of four 7025/12AX7 types and two 12AT7 types. The 7025 is a lower-noise version of the 12AX7.

The Fender Twin Reverb has two independent channels, labeled Normal and Vibrato. The controls have black-skirted knobs numbered from 1 to 10.

The black faceplates of the "blackface" era Twin Reverb will say either "Fender Electric Instruments" (FEI) or "Fender Musical Instruments", (FMI) depending on the date of manufacture. Those units made before the CBS take over of Fender in 1965, will be marked Fender Electric Instruments, and be worth a bit more on the collectors market.
