in my younger fitter guitar playing days, fender twins were always my amp of choice, even the frowned upon red knobbed twin had a special place in my heart, always used this on the low power setting & it sang like a bird, these don't fetch the high prices of other versions so buy one now before people wake up to how good they really were. These days I use a roland cube 30x on the black face setting it's about the only thing I can lift with one hand & carry to the car without falling over !!!!! merry christmas , mike b.

I picked this little beauty up a few weeks back (Fender Blues Junior)...15 watt, all valve with a Jensen speaker. Perfect for the house, though it does need to be quite loud for the valves to break up nicely.

I had a silverface Twin Reverb (1976) in the early 90's.

Was a wonderful thing until it got dropped out of the back of a truck by a courier. To be fair to him it was F£$%&ing heavy

Although not strictly full valve, i have a Fender Super champ x2 head with a Palmer 110 cab which i really like. Essentially a modelling amp with valve front end but still loud enough to gig rockabilly on the main 'straight through' channel and with the onboard dsp, i can add a touch of delay and not worry about my pedal board and just take a tuner. I have had a HRDX which i swapped for a Peavey Classic 30 as i found the gain a bit fizzy for me, and i borrowed but returned a Blues jr for the same reason. I had the SCXD before the X2 which had a bit more versatility if heavier tones were needed but i prefer the selection of tones on the X2 which are cleaner orientated and give great emulations of Various tweed and blackface models, my favourite being the actual Champ setting with a touch of grit to it. You can also just use it for monitoring as the Line out tones are actually very good.

I narrowly missed out on a Fender Concert (Rivera era) last week. But it had been modded for metal distortion...why the owner didn't get a Boogie for that is beyond me, but hey ho. I've been checking out vids of the Cornford Carrera this week and have been impressed by the sound of the 6v6 power valve. Remarkably Fender like...but the amps are more expensive than the Concert I'd been bidding on.

Well, I can now join in properly with this thread, as I've just picked up a Fender Super 112, a massive 60W, 1X12 valve combo. I'd been trying to get hold of the seller for ages and only recently had a reply from him, so I went round and checked it out today.

The clean channel is brilliant, the drive channel not so much, and there's no master volume to balance the two so there's a huge jump when the drive is kicked in.

It's heavy as hell, and incredibly loud, so I'll have to get an attenuator of some sort to be able to drive the tubes at low volume.

Despite these niggles, I actually really like it, I mainly bought it on the strength of the clean sound, it's nice with my SG. Pics will follow once I've given it a clean!

Nothing at the minute sorry, I'll try and get something sorted tomorrow, it needs a clean first.

The clean sound's very nice, I'm using it with an SG but I imagine it'd sound best with singlecoils. Apparently with these amps there's very little break up when it's cranked up, but I've yet to test those claims out.

I gave the amp a clean yesterday evening but waited until today to take some pictures in the natural light. Going over it there were a few little rips in the vinyl but nothing major. The volume knob has been replaced so I'll try to source a proper red knob for it. I think it could do with a service, some of the pots are very scratchy, but everything else seems to work fine. As far as I can tell though, the presence knob does nothing. I've got the bass and mid set to 6 and the treble to 7, and the clean sound really is excellent, even with my cheapy Epiphone SG. The reverb is very subtle, it just adds a tiny amount of spank to the sound.

The reviews for the Fender red knobs either fell in the "Great" or "Terrible" camps, but the one constant was that these amps are unbearably loud, and that's definitely true! I actually have the volume knob pointing at the top of the 0, and it's still very loud for home use if you really dig in. I don't even bother with the drive channel, I can't find any setting that's useable at home, even as low as it can be, the windows are shaking. I can bypass that with a decent stomp box though.

Overall though, I really like the sound, the only real problem is that I can't stop looking at Telecasters, I think this would really sing with singlecoils instead of humbuckers.

Great amps.

I agree Dave, I'm really pleased with it. I only paid 150 for it as well, they can be picked up really cheap. I think the only difference between the Super 60 and the Super 112 is the size of the cabinet, the Super 112 has a larger footprint, the Super 60 is a bit smaller. To be honest, I think I'd rather have the Super 60, this is a bit of a beast to lug about!

There was a Super 60 on Gumtree Glasgow at the same time as my 112 was posted, and the fella was looking for 300! There's a red knob Twin on eBay just now for 425 I think, I think 150-200 is the going rate for the Supers as there's not a huge demand for them. They can be had for peanuts in the US though!

6L6 as far as I know, there's lots of info on the Super 60, 112 & 210 on here, including some very interesting email from the designers:

I have a '75 Silverface Twin Reverb which I've had since '92. I can't see me ever wanting to part with it.
I had to replace the filter caps a few years ago, but other than that, it's been very reliable. It's insanely loud too!

I did a bit of Youtube surfing yesterday - the Fender 30 and 60 combos (around 1980) have the Fender sound and (in the US at least) seem to be ridiculously cheap.

I'm a guitar player mainly *ducks*, and I love the sound of Fender tweed and blackface amps. I couldn't find anything I liked in the shops, so I built my own: a 5E3 type and a Vibrolux Reverb.

I've had two Fender combos over the years. The first was a reissue of the '63 Vibroverb Brownface, which I bought in the early '90's if memory serves - original circuit layout - Oxford speakers, the lot! It sounded fabulous and looked cooler than ice in a freezer. Unfortunately, with the '60's spec came '60's reliability. After it went through it's second power transformer in as many months I decided to unload it. However, while it was away being repaired for the first time the shop (Musical Exchanges - anybody remember them?) lent me an old Twin they had laying around - quite possibly the heaviest amp I've ever owned :blink: , but loud?... don't talk to me about loud! Unbelievable! It is still indelibly etched in my memory even after 20 years, and seems destined to remain so - until the Alzheimer's sets in of course. :rolleyes:

I noticed Rob Harris at the LBGS was playing through a new Fender Princeton Reverb. It wasn't lacking in volume for 15w and sounded pleasantly fat although the treble was a little sparkly.

seems there are lots of pics of non-Fenders in this Fender post....

here's a proper collection of nearly all Fender amps! The only ones I own are the Blues Junior, the MusicMan and the Bassman head & cab.

I reckon the MusicMan is allowed as it is a Fender design and Leo did own the company at the time

This pic was taken back in 2007.

I had 1956 and 1959 Champs, they sounded so lovely in stereo. I also had the matching Champ lap steel for the 1956 Champ but sold the lot, including the pedals, in around 2010 when I was preparing to buy a flat and not playing as much guitar as in my 20's.

Mine's a Hot Rod Deluxe for a few years back which is a special edition with a Jensen P12n speaker. I had an older blues deluxe which was never the same after a repair so this was a welcome replacement.

Sounds great. Just swapped the whole set of oldish valves for a set of JJ valves and it sounded the dogs danglies when I gigged it last weekend.

I run it on clean channel with a Mooer hustle drive and pure boost providing varying degrees of gain, then hit lead channel for lead boost.

Paired with a HSS strat it sounds great. Happy days!
