1966 Fender Twin Reverb! The Real Deal...with Tuki padded cover, original footswitch, and original (replaced) parts. Works as it should. Pots are clean. Reverb is thick. No tremolo issues.


This amp comes from the O'Malley private collection and has been given his official green pilot light of tone.

What does that mean? This amp was hand selected for restoration. Only the best parts were used (Sprague Atom Electrolytics) and the original tone stacks have been preserved. In other words, the original "mojo" from the factory is still there. All original iron. The power tubes are NEW Matched premium TAD Red Base ($160 value). The pre-amp tubes have all been tested with a Maxi-Preamp tube tester and vetted for the best tone. This original Twin Reverb has been made the finest in can great shape, ready for years of killer tone.

Why else might I want this particular amp?

This amp is the real deal, a survivor, super clean, fully restored and ready for the next 50+ years.

The previous owner purchased it from a store in Nashville twenty + years ago. He primarily used the amp in his home studio, so any wear and tear you see must have come from a previous life.

The Twin Reverb sounds amazing (its a Twin Reverb) and works as it should. The tubes have been tested and their arrangement optimized for a very low noise floor.

Here's what we did.

  • New Premium Output Tubes - Tube Amp Doctor Red Base
  • Serviceable parts lubricated and cleaned. Cleaned chassis interior. Cleaned cabinet.
  • Extra Long 3 prong power cord installed
  • "ground cap" made safe / removed from circuit.
  • Necessary pre-amp tubes replaced and tested MaxiPreamp tube tester.
  • Amp Biased
  • Necessary caps replaced with Sprague Atom (the very best)
  • Screen resistors replaced (protects power tubes).
  • Replaced Grill Cloth (existing was non original)
  • Start up and verify proper operation

    Cosmetics and Condition

    Please review the photos closely as they are a better descriptor than I.
  • The "iron" is all original (Power, Output, choke, reverb driver, etc...). There are scratches and dimpling from use (but not abuse) on the BF faceplate.  The black tolex covering has some small nicks, chaffing, and a couple of cig burn marks, but is in remarkably good shape.  The cabinet is solid.  The hardware appears to be all original with pitting and rusting of the chrome components. The speakers have been re-coned, so they are ready for tone at volume with no fear. The grill cloth was professionally replaced.
  • The amp is super clean. THE classic Fender tone.
  • Original (replaced) parts ship with the amp.

If you have concerns about shipping, please consider my shops feedback. I put a ton of love, time and energy into these amps and want you to have a great experience. The amps don't leave until they are ready. It will be packaged well and shipped fully insured.
