Original Pre-CBS Fender Princeton Reverb 1965 blackface A05827 with a Fender Musical Instruments Jensen Special Design Reproduction.
The amp works and sounds amazing. This one has the original tilt back legs. The speaker is a reproduction Jensen sounds exceptional in the amp. The Chuck White stenciling could easily be removed but Chuck if you’re out there check this out! We have your old amp.
The Princeton Reverb is the smallest blackface/silverface Fender amp with both tremolo and reverb. With a 10 inch speaker run by a 12-15W dual 6V6 amp, it delivers a true “American” Fender tone with punchy, responsive lows together with chimey highs. When it is cranked it tends to sound a bit “browner” than the bigger two-channel amps, meaning more breakup in the lower frequencies and mid-focused tone. Much of this is due to an unefficient phase inverter circuit design.
