vintage twin reverb

Some silverface Twin Reverbs feature a master volume control with a push/pull switch for extra gain.

Why don’t master-volume Twin Reverbs get any respect?

Hello Jeff,

I just got a '70s silverface Fender Twin Reverb that needs a little TLC. Surfing the various forums, I've learned that this master-volume edition of the Twin is one of the most (unfairly, to me) maligned designs. The only indication of power is the "300 watts" label on the back.

I've wanted a silverface Twin or Pro Reverb since I was a teen. To me they are loud, clean, blank slates to color with different guitars and pedals. I'd appreciate any thoughts you might have on this amp.

Thanks, John Gilbert
