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.

  • Laney
    VC30

    Three models with the same features and the same electronics, but with different speakers, dimensions and weight. The FS2 footswitch selects the 2 channels and the built-in Reverb. The Effects Loop is equipped with the Bypass.

  • Marshall
    2466

    A 100-Watt head that features 4 ECC83 valves for the pre section and 4 KT66 for the power amp. The front panel includes a switch to boost middle, for a more fat sound, and a digital reverb.

  • Marshall
    50

    It produces a good tone, both the clean and the distortion, but it seems not much flexible. The CD input is a good added value. Moreover, it is equipped with a footswitch.
