Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Twin Custom 15 Amp : Review

Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Reissue

Specifications and features are the same of the '65 Twin Reverb Reissue. The only difference are the speakers.

The 15" Custom Eminence

It features one 15" Custom Eminence. This new speaker has been developed in conjunction with Eminence and is based on the JBLAD130F, used by Fender in the '60s and '70s. This cone features a larger coil, with an aluminum central cap and turns out perfect for clean sonorities, such as Jazz or Country. It delivers high quality bass and treble.

Always valid

Clean

Very well. It is a masterpiece. The real Fender clean. Warm, definite and absolutely balanced. Really full of harmonics. In addition, it is very present. Organic.

Distortion

It is amazing for the clean, but this doesn't mean that it cannot play the distortion. It is of high quality, so use a good pedal and it will sound perfectly even in a similar context. You can play Rock or also Hard Rock. It's not a problem. Perhaps the only thing you cannot play is Metal.

Conclusions

A masterpiece. This is sure. Sound is the best you can find around and the reverb is on the same level. My opinion is that the price of the '65 Twin Custom 15, approximately 1300 Euros, is good.

    Warm and with a remarkable attack, but the poor quality of the speakers, four 10" Jensen P-10R, is a limit.

    4104

    From 1981 to 1983 it has been equipped with two Rola Celestion G12-65 T3054 or T3101, while from 1984 the 4104 features two Celestion G12M-70. Pre volume and direct output.

    Fender made an excellent job. A 5-Watt jewel, perfect to study and complete, with a good DSP, a speaker emulator and an 8" Special Design.
