If you have one enjoy it, they are ok amps when they work!
The Fender '65 Super Reverb Combo Amp is a long overdue addition to Fender's Vintage Reissue series.
Non-Schumacher transformers – It’s been universally accepted that Fender only used Schumacher transformers on amps made in the 1960s and 1970s.
These are marked with EIA code “606” which is the company number for Schumacher.
Greg and Devin's experience meshed well with mine since I'm essentially the blackface/silverface amp guy (amps made between 19) in the group.
Additionally, Greg and Devin also had data that they had been collecting from Fender amps for years. Everything is confidential, we don't make record of who owns what amp in the database.
Greg is a long time Fender collector who is very knowledgeable not only in the details, but in the circuitry as well.They also have hand-wired tube sockets and other parts for added strength.Tonal Characteristics: Bright, scooped midrange that is known as the "Blackface" sound, pronounced "Wine Glass" highs from the Jensen speakers and a slightly more polite power amp for crystal cleans that can also be cranked for great overdriven tones.Well, this universal “truth” was debunked when we found a bunch of amps with transformers made by the Better Coil and Transformers company.Some things are very obvious such as non-original or reconed speakers, non-original transformers, replaced pots, re-tweed, re-tolex, re-grill, etc.
