Blackface and Tweed in one
Sebastian36, 19.02.2014
The 68s Custom Twin Reverb combines two Fender Amps in one. While the vintage channel offers the typical glassy Fender CleanSound (Blackface), the custom channel waits with the sound of a bassman (tweed). This comes fatter and with a little more gain therefore and is very good around for example Zerrpedale upstream. These can sometimes sound a bit harsh and scratchy in the vintage channel. In contrast to the 65er Reissue was here both channels Tremolo and Hall donated. Very useful, as I think.

Since I have never played the originals of these two classics, I can not judge how close the 68 Custom comes to the two. Personally, I like the amp very well, even so well, that I claim it is the best amplifier that has come under my fingers so far. Among them was, for example, a Vox AC30HW2X.

The new Celestion G12 V-Type loudspeakers fit in my opinion very well in the 68s Custom, as they master the balancing act between percussive clean sound and distorted rockboard.

One more note on the volume. This amp can be very noisy, would be the right word. However, he also sounded back to room volume still pointedly. So, do not be deterred by 85 Watts.

A real sound split
Noel M., 04.08.2015
I'm really in love with my amp ... What a sound! And even at low volume. The two channels allow a great diversity of sounds. The reverb is worthy of the best amps crack and tremolo a treat. Small flat. C is a tube amp ... it is therefore heavy ... attention to the back during transport ... it is also sensitive to the problems of masses in the power supply ... there will soon be slight sound of background especially when We use the reverb or the tremolo ... But its sound makes everything forget. I love it...
