The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

‼️Reduced‼️ Fender Super Reverb Silverface ‘Drip Edge’, 1969

Brand:

The Fender Super Reverb was built from 1963 to 1982, and was one of Fender’s physically largest combo amps – though the most powerful combo was the Twin Reverb. The Super Reverb delivered 40 watts as ‘Blackface’, then 45 watts as ‘Silverface’ and ultimately 70 watts for models after 1977, through four ten inch speakers. The Twin Reverb, in contrast, used a pair of twelve inch speakers to deliver 85 watts, ranging up to 100 ultimately 135 watts in 1977.

The Fender Super Reverb was fairly popular with performers mid range stages – its four speakers give it an undeniable presence, and the somewhat lower power levels allow the volume to be turned up to the point where the power amp section will overdrive.   The Super Reverb was used for a time – in pairs – by Stevie Ray Vaughn,  in conjunction with a pair of Fender Vibro Verbs, which pushed 35 watts through a single 15 inch speaker. 

Here we’re looking at a Fender Super Reverb, in Silverface ‘Drip Edge’ garb, and with the AB568 circuit. The ‘Drip Edge’ refers to the metal edging around the speaker grille cloth. This amp has been used, and there’s a small poke hole in the grille cloth. It has also been recently serviced, including having the original capacitors replaced. The Fender Jensen speakers are original, as is the included footswitch, which controls the reverb and vibrato state (on, or off). The original tilt-back legs are also in place, allowing the sound to project upwards rather than directly into the players in front of the amp.

These amps are great for use in dance bands, where it’s necessary to get the sound out through a moving and noisy audience. One of our staff played in such a band that included an accordion and drummer, regularly performing for crowds of rowdy polka enthusiasts.

A non-original black slip cover is included.
