❌SOLD❌Fender Pro Combo Amp Brownface, 1962

Built from 1946 to 1965 in evolving forms, the Fender Pro Combo amp was the largest of three amplifiers offered when Fender opened. It was replaced in 1966 by the Pro Reverb.
From its first 18 watt incarnation to its 40 watt exit in favour of a Reverb-equipped model, the Fender Pro combo amp featured a single 15 inch speaker. As a higher powered amp, its ‘Harmonic Vibrato’ circuit differs from that used on models past the Vibrolux.
