There's several different types of Fender Twins. Those of you who have the high-end Pro Tube Series "TWIN-AMP" speak up! Share your stories and how you use your PTTA. This is the one with the 100 watts (& 1/4 power switch) and the glorious crunch channel... I play a Rickenbacker 360 and an American Tele through mine and it's a damn beautiful thing.

I'm in. In my opinion, the Twin-amp is one of the best amps in the current Fender line. Crystal clear cleans, great drive channel, and feature after feature on a quality built amp. The only accessory required is my American Strat.

Alrighty...now that all three people in the world who own a Pro-Tube "Twin-Amp" have joined the club, I guess we can shut this puppy down...

Hey, before you shut this puppy down ... Did I mention that my Twin-Amp is the best damn amp in the current Fender line?

I love this amp! Played it last night on 25 watts with all three kids asleep and cranked it up this afternoon to 100 watts with everyone out of the house. Awesome tone both times. Twin-amps rule!

Now you can shut it down until someone else buys one. Thanks,

The Twin Amp is a high-end amp with a lot of features that other amps don't have.. even other Fender amps. Examples are the 25W setting and the effects loop with the adjustable in and out volume settings. Yes, the amp is very heavy. But I always warn my wife to be careful when lifting it for me.

I perform 1 to 3 shows a week for the last ten years and have had this amp for about three years. IMO this amp beats any other in versatility, tone and reliability. This is my main amp, only occasionaly using something smaller for a Sunday jam session here and there. Even though my taste in tone changes daily from single coils to humbuckers the Pro Series Twin has never let me down. This amp will never be sold or traded for any other amp that may come down the road.

If only more people knew about this amp! I've never seen one in a store, and I had explain to the salesidiots at Guitar Center what this amp was.

Perfect timing for this club! I have just ordered a Pro-Tube Twin Amp myself and expect it any day now. I tried it at GC (they happened to have a used one on the floor). I spent a couple of hours plugging into all of their Fender amps they had piled up there, from the Blues Jr. to the Cyber-Twin, Vibroverb, Hot Rod series, etc. The Twin Amp definitely stood out above the rest for it's tone and power.

Jacomo - Great news! Let us know your opinion of the Twin-amp after you've played it for a few days. I've had mine for several weeks and have absolutely no complaints. The amp is perfect right out of the box.

Guess what I just won...

I think this is a pretty good deal considering it's brand new with the 5 year warranty. Came out to $850 shipped! I actually used to own a 2001 '94 Twin Amp which I believe was the last year it was made before this one replaced it. There was a crack in the cabinet and I always thought something was wrong with it so I sold it and got an '05 TRRI a year ago. I don't know if you saw my other post but I don't think I'm happy with it either. There are things I will try before saying goodbye to the TRRI like a re-bias. Plus I'll have both next to each other to compare. Hopefully my search stops here. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Check it out

Dude - You just scored big time! That's a great amp at a great price. Let us know what you think after you've played with it a few days.

Edited to add - This amp will also solve the "too clean" issues you were having with your TRRI. The Twin-amp has a throaty clean channel and breaks up real well on the drive channel. The 25/100 watt switch will let you get the same tones at bedroom levels.

Awesome, I can't wait. I also went into GC today and tried the Hot Rod Deville 212 and have to say that I really love that amp. They didn't have a PTTA though so I'll have to wait till mine comes in. I think in the end, I'll either break even (or close to) if I sell my TRRI and settle with the PTTA or get some cash back in my pocket if I end up with the Hot Rod Deville 212 and sell both the TRRI and PTTA. As long as I'm satisfied I'm happy either way.

The Hot Rod Deville is a cool amp but it's the lower end amp that Fender makes in Mexico. The Twin-Amp is made in California and is has better workmanship etc... The Twin-Amp is the Bees Knees...

Yeah, I'm aware that it's the lower end but it's also funny how I'm not totally satisfied with the sound of my TRRI. That's why everything is so subjective and just because it's the more expensive model doesn't mean it's going to sound better to everyone's ears. I'm sure there's plenty of people out there that prefer cheeseburgers over fillet mignon ;)
