This is my 1965 Super Reverb.
This is not a Reissue or a Clone, this is the Real Deal. No transformer required, this thing runs at 230/240v. I have owned this amp for a long time now and I believe it only has had one owner before me who had it serviced prior to my purchase.
It has been very reliable in my time with the amp. it has never left the house and this really is my pride and joy. The valves/tubes that I currently have in their have been in for a couple of years now and they endure at least 3 hours of use per week.
As you can see it is in good condition, the Tolex looks great and the Grill Cloth is also in good condition. You will notice that the rear baffle needs recovering, the Tolex has come away from here at some point, above the baffle you will see that some of the Tolex is coming away which is easily fixed. This is only on the back and is not visible from the front.
I dont think my photos do this amp full justice and I will endeavour to take some more shots soon, I will also take some of the internals also for those that want to take a look.
I want to say upfront that I am no vintage expert in all things Super Reverb. I am told that this is a 1965 model by a couple of reputable sources, the Tube Chart also indicates that it is also a 1965 Model Year. There are no extendable legs on this amp, but I believe they can be purchased quite freely. I have never had a need for them so I never bothered to try and locate a set. The foot switch seems to work but I have to be honest and say that I never use it. The Reverb Sounds nice until around 4 or 5, the Tremolo may need some work. It does work but I am not sure if it is working 100% or should I say im not sure if it should sound different to what it does.
Crank this one up and it screams, and I have to tell you that this thing is loud. Stick your strat neck pickup on and dig in and prepared to be blown away. As with any amp of this vintage, values of capacitors and internal parts etc change over time. I would recommend to anyone purchasing an amp of this vintage to have it serviced on a regular basis and make sure its running at 100%.
Charges for Domestic or International Couriers.
I will get a quote for anyone who is interested in purchasing who is unable to pickup.
Good luck to you all and I would really like this one to go to someone who will look after it and play it like it should be played.
Thanks again. Mark
