The blackface era Fender Princeton Reverb-Amp is an iconic amplifier that has become one of the most desirable recording amps today. Its versatile platform is just as comfortable at home, in the studio or at a gig. This amp is powered by a pair of 12ax7 preamp tubes driving two 6v6 power tubes making about 12 watts of power. It’s tube rectified and uses a 12at7 and 7025 to drive the spring reverb and tremolo section. The 10″ speaker is housed in a fingerjointed solid Pine cabinet for tone and ease of portability. Unlike the reissue, the original Princeton Reverb is all hand wired using an eyelet board to keep everything clean. The resulting amplifier boasts big cleans, smooth overdriven tones, classic Fender reverb and some of the finest tremolo around.
This 1966 Fender Princeton Reverb-Amp has just been serviced and is ready to go. It retains all its original parts except for a three prong power cord installation, tubes, one vintage replacement knob, and the reverb footswitch input. It even has its original Jensen C10NA speaker with the larger magnet than the more common Oxford. It’s in proper working condition but we always recommend a replacement speaker for optimum tone since the original is a 50 year old piece of paper that can’t handle full drive/volume like it once could. The tolex shows wear from the year and a few spots on the back where some stickers were removed. Overall, it’s in great shape and would be a fine addition to the studio or collection.
