The Fender 68 Princeton Reverb 1x10 Combo Amplifier has that Iconic Fender Sound you have heard on literally thousands of timeless recordings. Its portability and output have made it an ideal choice for the grab-and-go jam scenario, as well. On-board reverb and trem mean you won't be pedal-dependent and the familiarity of tone will be a straight path to playing instead of fidgeting with controls.
If you are a humbucker fan or prefer a beefier low-end and less twangy top-end, check out this 68 Princeton Reverb! This version has a modified tone circuit and a Celestion Speaker installed. With the smaller 10" speaker, the Celestion handles low end much better, offering a more assertive sounding and handling breakup beautifully. The touch sensitivity is also much easier to notice on this amp, as it breaks up then cleans up depending on how hard you strike the strings. COOL!
The guitarist with an eye and ear for late-'60s Fender "silverface" style will love the '68 Custom Princeton Reverb, which honors the classic look and great sound of that era's amps. Small, light, and moderately powered, longtime recording and gigging favorite the Princeton Reverb received a fresh new face in 1968—a silver-and-turquoise front panel with aluminum grille cloth trim, with tone, reverb, and tremolo that was still pure Fender. The '68 Custom Princeton Reverb also has modified tone circuitry for greater tonal flexibility with pedals and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity and quicker overdrive onset.
Since the late 1940's Fender Amplifiers have found their way onto recordings spanning all genres, decades, and playing styles. The choice of many players for the stage and studio including the likes of (deep breathe in) Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Albert Lee, Mike Campbell, Joe Campilongo, James Burton, Steve Howe, Johnny Marr, Brian Setzer, Buddy Guy, Mike Bloomfield, Jack White (big breath in) and countless hobbyists looking for a wattage appropriate, pedal-friendly platform for playing a bunch of different styles!
