Fender Super Amp ‘Brownface’, 1962

Fender Super Amp 'Brownface', 1962

Originally introduced as the Dual Professional in late 1946 and renamed in 1947, the Fender Super Amp started as a 20 watt, 2×10 combo, rising to a whopping 40 watts by 1962, and was discontinued in 1963 as Reverb-equipped models displaced several designs.  Here we’re looking at a Fender Super Brownface amp, with the ‘brownface’ trim putting it directly between the ‘Blonde’ and ‘Blackface’ eras. (In the vintage amplifier world, the terms ‘Brownface and’ ‘Blackface’ – referring to the amp’s white lettering on a brown or black control panel – have no relation to what those terms mean in current political or cultural contexts).

❌SOLD❌ Fender Princeton Reverb BlackFace Amp, 1967

❌SOLD❌  Fender Princeton Reverb BlackFace Amp, 1967

The Fender Princeton Reverb Blackface was a successor to one of Leo Fender’s first amps, the 5-watt, 1×8 speaker 1946 Princeton aimed at students. Over the years that model evolved into a the 15-watt, 1×10 speaker combo with Reverb and Tremolo. And over those years, it was adopted as a key tool for session players due to its great sound, relatively low power, light weight and portability.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Reverb Unit Model 6G15 Blackface, 1964

Until the early 1960s, Reverb as an effect was very uncommon on amplfiers. The Fender Reverb unit was introduced in 1961 to provide standalone reverb. Fender began to introduce Reverb on amplifiers in 1963, on the VibroVerb combo. Soon it seemed that all Fender amps had to have it!
