Fender Super Reverb 1968 Drip EdgeFender
Somewhat of a sleeper in Fender's "Reverb" line of all tube combo amps, the Super Reverb has a warmer and less brittle tone that its somewhat-distant cousin the Twin Reverb. The Super Reverb is a 40 watt amplifier with a 4 x 10" speaker configuration that pushes some serious air! With it's relatively low wattage (for such a big and loud amplifier) gives you the ability to push some serious tube distortion out of those speaker cones! In 1968, Fender began to change the front badge of their amplifiers from the previous "blackface" logo to the shiny "silverface" badge. In oncoming years, the Super Reverb underwent some circuit changes that are considered undesirable by some, increased to 45 watts and later to the 75 watt "ultra-linear" design. Some of these transitionary amplifiers from around 1968, known as "drip edge" unit, retained the original "blackface" circuitry including this particular specimen! With two 6L6 Power Tubes, and two 12AX7 preamp tubes, in addition to tube-driven reverb and tremolo, this thing is dripping with huge vintage tone!
