The Fender Blackface Twin Reverb '65 is the most highly regarded guitar amplifier in the Twin Reverb line.  Up until a certain year, Fender made these amps with a black face and without a master volume knob, and this distinguishes the amp from the later silver face models of the amp.  Beyond this however, it is quite similar in make up to the later models of the Twin Reverb.  The amp has two channels - one without effects and one with spring reverb and tremolo.  Each of the channels has two 1/4 inch connections for inputs.


The make up of the Fender Blackface Twin Reverb '65 isn't all that hard to follow.  The first channel has parameters for volume, bass, mid, and treble, as well as a bright switch.  The second channel has the same parameters as well as those to control the effects for reverb, tremolo intensity, and speed.  This amp has a great inherent tone, so when you have the settings in middle or so, you can usually get a pretty great sound right off the bat.  I've never needed to look at a manual for the Blackface Twin.


I have used the Fender Blackface Twin Reverb '65 for recording with a Fender Strat and a Jazzmaster, and within this configuration I'm able to get some pretty incredible sounds.  I also used the amp with overdrive effects like a Tube Screamer and Klon Centaur, as well as a slew of other effects.  I can't say enough about the mix of warmth and clarity that this amp has to offer.  It is the perfect amp for getting a clean sound, and can even get some overdrive without a pedal when you turn the amp up a bit.  The Twin Reverb is one of my favorite amps in general, and the Blackface '65 is the holy grail of Twins...


While there is a reissue version of the Fender Blackface Twin Reverb '65 that comes pretty close, there is nothing like the original.  These are the most expensive Twins out there, but they sound better than any of them as well.  If you're in the market for a great amp, or know what a Twin can do and what the best that they have to offer, without a doubt you need to try the Fender Blackface Twin Reverb.
