Up for sale, a 1967 Fender Princeton Reverb in excellent condition and in perfect working order, complete with two-button footswitch. Serviced by our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar and boasting a full vintage tube set, the Princeton Reverb is the perfect amplifier for small club gigs and studio sessions. This classic Fender AA764 Black Panel circuit delivers both well-balanced, sparkling cleans and smooth, harmonic-rich overdrive when you dime it out. The Reverb is extremely lush and the Tremolo has a nice pulse with a wide range of speeds.
The circuit retains the original Schumacher output transformer (Fender's primary transformer supplier in the era) along with a factory spec replacement power transformer. The preamp retains many of the famed blue molded Ajax tone caps (an essential part of the Black Panel sound), along with a few replacement tubular caps and smaller electrolytics in the preamp. The larger multi-section can cap in the power supply has also been recently replaced to ensure trouble-free performance, and the power cable has been upgraded to the modern three-prong variety. All of the original pots are intact, dating back to '66. The tubes consist of a vintage matched pair of Magnavox-branded 6V6s with an RCA 5U4 rectifier and all vintage valves in the preamp as well.
The speaker is a vintage Jensen C10Q, with a clean frame, traditional brown and gold Jensen foil sticker on the magnet, and 1967 date stamp on the edge of the frame. The speaker retains the original speaker harness as well, complete with the original speaker jack with Fender "F" cap. The tube chart is fully intact, with a "QC" date stamp from March of 1967.
The original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth are intact, with some modest edge wear on the tolex and uniform aging of the grill, with one small tear central to the cloth. The original faceplate shows a speckling of light wear with a full complement of witch hat knobs, and the hardware includes a fresh pair of chassis straps along with the original handle caps, sphinx glides (feet), and raised Fender logo.
This vintage Black Panel Princeton Reverb works exactly as it should, sounds great, and is ready for another 50 years of use.
A modern vintage-style two-button footswitch to engage the Reverb and Tremolo effects is included.
