Blackface Super Reverb Twin Amp, 180W RMS tube (11) made from late 1977 to early 1980. Version of vitamin Twin Reverb with two HP 6x6L6 exitant ElectroVoice EVM12L 103dB/1W/1M giving a performance.
Two footswitchable channels. With a normal and a "distortion" integrated, rather a saturation dosed tube preamp in the final stage.
Two pedals with the first one on / off switch and reverb on the second two switches, one for saturation and for the commissioning of the equalize. A manual switch on it can boost the volume of dB.volt 6 (+3 dB power)

The settings are common to both channels:
Volume (in bright pull) Treble, Middle, Bass, Presence.
Determination of reverb
Equaliser asset (a floor lamp) of 5 frequencies: 100Hz, 235Hz, 485Hz, 1250Hz, 2300Hz
Saturation intensity (with on / off switch on the knob)
Master.

Special model (on order) with a key switch in the back.
Recording output / line is connected to the secondary of output transformer via a resistor, which can reproduce the sound of the amp before HP.

UTILIZATION

What is surprising for a tube amp is the total silence of operation. Means just the slight vibration of the power transformer. One branch (in my case HR) and it sounds.
Volume 4 (3) * and master in 5 (4) *, equivalent to the Twin power! * (The potentiometers are engraved with 1 to 10, new to the home 7ender 0!)
It's the sound of the Twin Reverb, the more power and vibrato replaced by a "distortion-saturation" assayable.
In short, the clear sound of the Twin Reverb.
Equalizer settings associated with passive Bass, Middle, Treble, Presence, can achieve the sound you want.
The manual is what is more succinct. We can do without!

SOUNDS

Used with a Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion II and Epiphone Howard Roberts archtop vintage electro (by Gibson), I play mostly blues and jazz. I was looking for a clear emphasis on the expression of these instruments. The Super Twin Reverb is perfect for me.

With these guitars and playing the instrument settings-amp, no additives, you get sounds ranging from Kenny Burrell to Pat Metheny through Aldi Meola, Larry Carlton, not to mention John Campbell, and J. Waters Mudy between Lee Hooker others.

The dynamic is amazing. Changes from pianissimo to fortissimo are transcribed perfectly.

OVERALL OPINION

This amp has a phenomenal power able to play without sound on small stages or clubs or avoiding the recovery in the returns of larger scenes.
The distortion is more of a crunch to saturation giving low. What is remarkable is that it acts on the frequency preferred by the equalize.

Purchased from a German radio station that used in the recording studio and live on air, with its dedicated Flycase Fender.

Finally, it is a Twin Reverb with two supercharged and vibrato channels replaced by a saturation, which is not bad.

It weighs weight: 55Kg, 75 in the Flycase, but no free lunches.

I was looking for a Twin Reverb for a long time and I fell on this occasion.
I do not regret my choice.
