    Default Fender Super Reverb 2x12

    Ok, theres a Fender Super Reverb 2x12 amp for sale in my area for a really cheap price and I was wondering if this amp would be worth picking up. It has 3 tubes in the power amp section and like 6 pre amp tubes I believe. Theres no gain control knob I dont think. So i just want to know like how does this amp work... is it much like the marshall plexi where you have to crank it up to get a distorted gain-ish sound? Any help would be great. Thanks!

    What sound are you going for? A Super Reverb will not sound like a Plexi. Fenders are reknown for their awesome clean tones. However, it will break up and distort a bit if you crank it. Granted, it won't be a 5150 high gain distortion, more of an overdrive. Think Stevie Ray Vaughan-ish type tone. However, you can always get a distortion pedal to put in front of the amp.

    These are great amps for what they do, and if you are looking for an amp with an awesome clean tone that will give a warm breakup when it's overdriven, this would be a nice choice. If you are looking for the brown sound, play through it first and be sure it's a tone your looking for.

    Happy Searching!
