Nice demo. It confirms what I think about this amp: it sounds good clean, but I don't care for the sound when overdriven. I may be in the minority on this, but I'm just stating my personal preference.

I don't like blackface amps with overdrives or distortions either. I owned the Twin and the Deluxe blackface and sold both for that reason. Sounds too fizzy for me. Nice clean but lousy with overdrive pedals. There are many that will tell me I'm full of it (LOL) and I know that's my opinion. <br /> <br /> I bought a 68 custom deluxe reverb which sounds much better with pedals to my ears. The amp is better voiced for that purpose. <br /> <br /> The original blackface amps may be a different case.<br /> <br /> But as I said for playing clean they sound really nice.<br /> <br />

Yes the clean sound and reverb is crazy good on this amplifier.<br /> Recording crunch tone was more for the fun of the experience than anything else, noone would ever use a twin reverb this way as it is insanely loud to achieve a crunch on this amp.

Agree with others, clean with reverb preferred. The elephant in the room is, for me, the weight of this amp. As get older load in/out seems to get more difficult. Light weight amps are more appealing.

I play one at church where I need clean and it never moves- right up this amp's alley...;)

Hi spinal!<br /> <br /> Well done - thank you very much!<br /> I personally like an overdriven blackface amp - you just have to work with it. It´s not as easy to handle as a Marshall ;-)<br /> <br /> cheers - C.

OMG... about the only thing I liked about it was that it showed that Twins are really not all the clean.<br /> <br /> At one point I was asking myself.. "is that guy really that out of tune or is it he doesn't know how to bar a chord correctly?" <br /> <br /> wow.. what a bad representation of a Twin Reverb.<br /> <br /> please leave it to the professionals

A fine overview of this classic amp showing it at a variety of settings and with several representative guitars. This is certainly one of Fender's truly iconic products and an honest and straightforward demonstration by two guitarists, for me, can many times give one a better view of an amp's sounds than some of the "pro" productions out there. Thanks for reviewing this great tube amp !<br /> <br /> Mike

I love my Fender Twin RI. It sounds fantastic on clean like everyone said, but it also sounds great with pedals. I use a SD 805 tube screamer and Mesa Boogie Flux 5 pedal and its killer.<br /> By the way I put wheels on my amp. So glad I did.
