Here's a faithful re-creation of the legendary and highly collectible Blackface Super Reverb from the 1960s. Designed to sound as close to the original as possible, the ˜65 Reissues are assembled in Corona, California and feature Jensen speakers (One C12K for the Deluxe and two C12Ks for the Twin, four P10Rs for the Super and one C10R for the Princeton), Schumacher transformers, traditional tremolo and tube-driven reverb to create that classic, "Blackface" sound so many players desire.
This 45W, all-tube combo with 4 x 10" Jensen speakers, tube reverb, and vibrato has long been considered one of the best amps to "crank up" for unmiked club gigs or on the concert stage. They do have PCBs (Printed Curcuit Boards), as opposed to the original's "hand-wired" circuitry, but the components (capacitors and resistors) are the same values as amps from that period.
Who's it for: Players that love the original versions but are priced out of owning vintage amps, blues players, country players, rock players, guitarists trying to get classic "Blackface" sounds (a la Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer), American-made amp enthusiasts, traditionalists, avid Fender collectors.
Oddlings – Yet another printing error has surfaced, this time from the FEI (pre-CBS) days.
An 8-ohm extension speaker output even lets you add a cabinet for additional stage coverage.This ones finished in Scarlett Red with a pleasing flamed maple top, certainly not a 10 top but nice enough.A lot of people incorrectly refer to Annapolis models as "pre-factory", the reason for which I haven't a clue.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.
