King Loudness's review"Like a downsized Twin"

Fender Pro Reverb
The Fender Pro Reverb was introduced in the sixties as an amplifier to round out their line of amps. The Twin Reverb was the flagship for many years, and lots of players loved them, but the weight and high wattage made it a no-go for some. The Fender Pro Reverb, rated at about 40 watts but maintaining the classic 2x12 speaker configuration, was definitely a step closer. The Pro Reverb puts out 40 tube watts, has 2 12"s and has the typical blackface era layout of two channels. The first is normal and has volume, treble, and bass controls with a bright switch like a Twin Reverb. The vibrato channel has those same controls, but also contains the standard reverb and vibrato controls that are on most standard Fenders of the era.

UTILIZATION

Getting a good sound out of the Pro Reverb is certainly a simpler task than dialing in a big ol' Twin Reverb, that's for sure! Being that it's only 40 watts as opposed to 85, you're not dealing with the super high headroom that a Twin takes up in a space. However that being said, 40 tube watts is still nothing to scoff and the Pro Reverb still isn't what I would call a bedroom or basement amp... definitely something that should be gigged properly. Other than the wattage factors, it's still a great sounding clean Fender amp that does what it says and sounds great while doing it!

SOUNDS

The tones out of this amp are pretty cool. They're more or less very Twin like in character, but I find that even considering that, the Pro Reverb also has a little bit of a sweeter tone, kinda like the Super Reverb. The Twin is quite loud and as a result is brighter to my ears. The Pro Reverb is a little more ideal for softer styles like smoother country or blues. I also enjoy hearing them with a good quality analog drive box in the front for either a little bit of casual dirt or for some full on high gain type sounds as well.

OVERALL OPINION

All in all I think the Fender Pro Reverb is a great buy for someone looking for great tone a-la a Twin Reverb and who likes the dual 12" speakers, but doesn't want the full gauntlet of 85 tube watts. The Pro Reverb is an ideal gigging or jamming amp provided you can get some volume pumped into it, even just a bit, but certainly less than the Twin. They can be had for around a grand used if you want a blackface model, which is a great deal for a real deal vintage amp from the glory days!

Fender Pro Reverb
All Tube amp 50Watts rms connection asser complte effects loop, exit pramp to go to a table or a recorder output speaker cabinet to add a possibility to put a quarter of its power (useful for the apartment) tube reverb, tremolo and a saturated light bulbs, 2CH

UTILIZATION

Configuration trs simple but highly effective rang IMMEDIATE both fender clean sound that typ saturated his head not making a true wonder! manual in French and clear

SOUNDS

Perfect for my style funk-rock fusion music I use a strat american series hss s1 and a small stone and lespaul, wha, tube screamer, compressor, chorus type trs crystalline clear sound with microphones changes are going in a palette of the best sound you can hope for brightness selector or not! saturated and then the sound of hot lights and trs a real vintage rock typ rgale

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one week and I'm good surprises exxellente surprises, its extremely good (fortunately for the price) I sold the pod 2 and 4 * 6 12line with the classic 50/50 but honestly I think I find my sound I play for fifteen years and I had a tube amp mi60, a transistor amps, the cit pod2 and stuff above and I'm in heaven, I remake the m I choose a good dozen times, here I reckon you understand I love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I put around 10 because my trial is positioned for scne! for the studio I keep pod2 which is adapted to this configuration but I n'tait not satisfied with the live sound with the pod so feel free to buy a real amp scne

Larron's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Pro Reverb
MODELS There are two: the Silver Face and Black Face, that match 2 production PERIOD Different.
Mine is a silver (70), with 3-band EQ.
It's just like a Twin but 50 W, making it much more playable on configs to repeat or small clubs. But as is the all-tube Obviously, it can also spit out very very strong.
Like the Twins, he has 4 inputs for 2 channel compltement indpendants.
The first one SETTING THE gain a qualizer + 2 or 3 bands according MODELS.
The second is identical to the first with an additional SETTING THE rverb (rverb beautiful spring) and trmolo (speed and amplitude).
On the back, speaker outputs, preamp output and to control the connection pdalier rverb and trmolo.
At HP's c is 2 * 12 ". Srieusement It suffers at the weight of the BTE. Prvoir friends for transportation ...

UTILIZATION

The trs rglages are simple in appearance, but it takes a bit of exprience to make the most humble and stay in front of the "life" inhrente lamps, which means that the sound is not always n exactly the same.
Note:
- No distortion on this amp. Therefore a prvoir pedals if you want to play "guitar heroes".
- The EQ of this era are crossovers, meaning that when they are in a neutral position when the maximum level, and that they "enlvent" the frquence on which they work when 'one level down. They are trs effective, so much so that no sound comes out of the amp EQ if the three are set to a minimum. For use with so far.

SOUNDS

This is the highlight of this amp. The sound is great both for a Rhodes or Wurlitzer electric guitar with a good.
Like all the highs are old fender Submitted trs. Be careful with the ears, especially with a tlcaster ...
For my part I advise you not to go trs hsiter a high (level of max) rgler the volume with the output level, put all the EQ of 10 and adjust your sound from a l.
! Like all amps lamp must give him time to heat through, and above all never turn the amp is not loaded (ie not connected to HP under threat of damage trssrieusement.

OVERALL OPINION

It's a beautiful amp, that we can find for an affordable rate.
I prfre in Twin, more powerful and difficult to use other than on scne.
Mine Has Fully rvis by a professional service (change of all lamps and capabilities, cleaning all the connectors and knobs, etc ...) and it does not move. No cracking, no buzz, no jumps. It's solid trs trs!

Fender Pro Reverb
50W lamp with the whole shebang: pdalier 4 switches, switchable effects loop and adjustable power loop, removable castors and cover, qualisation, prsence, etc.. : High art.
The reverb is ... reverb
The trmolo allucinant is (I love) but only works in full mode ball (hence 9 / 10).
Rducteur 1 / 4 power very useful for home
Distortion allucinante whether crunch in saturated 'or lead: it's clean, it's hot it's beautiful.
Its clean: There's t he best??

UTILIZATION

Configuration very simple: all rglages sound good, you rgaller you.

SOUNDS

I play on Fender Start and I see nothing to say except that I am a musician fills:
Any rglage gives you:
Clear sound that kills,
A saturated 'or allucinante crunch,
Trmolo a hell ...
I continue or everyone understand?

OVERALL OPINION

Why did I buy the half a dozen amps before falling on it?
I will not change: I found: the ultimate amp.

Unless you do prfereriez the 100W model to break all the tiles, I recommend you try it and adopt it!
