Fender Releases ’68 Custom Series Amps

Fender 68 Custom Princeton Reverb AmpPress Release: Fender is proud to announce the ’68 Custom series amplifiers, which consist of the ’68 Custom Twin Reverb, ’68 Custom Deluxe Reverb and ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb amps. 1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender, but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum “drip edge” grille cloth trim, ’68 Custom amps pay tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender’s late-‘60s “silver-face” amps, but feature a special twist. Both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the “custom” channels have modified Bassman tone stacks that give modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. In addition, all models include custom-made Schumacher transformers (like the originals), tube-driven spring reverb and Celestion speakers, which deliver a more distinctively rock ‘n’ roll flavor.
