$1,899.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1974 Fender Super Six Reverb in excellent condition and in good working order, complete with the original two-button footswitch. One of the most imposing and powerful vintage tube amps ever concocted by Fender, this Super Six Reverb essentially combines the circuit and chassis of a Twin Reverb with six 10" CTS speakers, identical to what you'd find in a Super Reverb. Well-kept and professionally maintained, this Super Six delivers detailed and powerful clean tones that easily fill a room and keep up with any band. The amp has sweet, musical overdrive qualities as well when you really push the circuit, and with the Master Volume the Super Six can be pushed hard for breakup or dialed back for use in more modest situations. Add Fender's tube driven reverb and optical tremolo circuit and you have the perfect platform for a wide range of genres.

The circuit features all original transformers which date to 1974, and the preamp is virtually untouched save for a couple modern Sprague electrolytics. Visible codes on the CTS pots date to the 2nd week of '74. The amp has been recently retubed as well with a matched quad of Tung Sol 5881 (6L6) power tubes, along with all of the original matched RCA preamp tubes. The sextet of original CTS 10" speakers are present with remarkably clean frames and blue foil Fender labels on the alnico magnets, all featuring viable cones. These speakers have clean date codes from the 18th week of 1974 on the edges of the frames.

The amp retains its original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth with orange stripe, quite well-kept and an ideal candidate for the studio. Given the sheer size of the Super Six and its stage-centric design, it's very rare to see one as preserved as this example. There's a bit of wear on the enclosure edges, and plenty of sparkle left in the grillcloth. All of the original hardware is present including the corners, handle caps, and chassis straps, all of which show uniform surface patina. The Silverface faceplate retains all of the original witch hat knobs, and even the original set of casters is present, mounting on the side as per factory spec.

The original two-button footswitch is included.
