Blackface 1967 Fender Pro Reverb. Ready to go first...

18 Oct 2014

Posted by RhoadsScholar in Non-Heritage Goods: For Sale, Trade, Wanted

Up for sale is my recently services 1967 Fender Pro Reverb. This amp is ready to go another 40 years or so having recently been gone through by a local amp tech. 

 

The original tolex is in pretty good shape (I posted some photos of close ups). Some wear at the corners and a repaired tear on the front.  The Amp has a non-original baffle with non-original grill cloth (you can get mojotone replacement baffle with period correct grill cloth for about 75 dollars to shore it up.).  The amp has non-original speakers at present (usa made eminenence speakers that sound just fine).  I also have a pair of celestion NEO vintage 30's that lighten the total load about 10 pounds and sound great in this amp which the buyer can have for an additional 100 for the pair (otherwise, the NEOs are for sale for 150 for the pair). See the pics for condition.  Now for the good stuff.

 

Electronics, solid, faceplate, great shape.  I picked this up at a local music shop last year with the intent of restoring it and trying to flip it (at that time, these were selling in the 2200 to 2500 range).  It sounded great so I decided to hang on to it, playing it as I got it, but getting it serviced (added the 3 prong plug, changed caps, etc.) came to about $300 to shore it up.  I also picked up a nice calzone case right here on the HOC which the buyer can have for an additional $75 if they are interested.

 

If you attended Steiner's Pre-HOC event, I brought this amp loaded with the NEO Vintage 30's and it sounded great. Lots of great playing through the  amp that day.

 

IN Summary

 

1967 Pro Reverb AMP  $1200

2 12 inch NEO speakers $100 (to buyer)

CALZONE Flight Case    $ 75 (to buyer)

 

HERE IS SOME INFO ABOUT the 1965 to 1967 Fender Pro Reverb

 

Summary

The Pro Reverb is one of the beloved 40W 6L6 working horses. It has the same 2×12″ speaker configuration as the Twin Reverb but has a less powerful amp. It has half the number of power tubes, smaller transformers and a tube rectifier in stead of diodes. Together this makes the Pro Reverb break up significantly around the usual volume level 4, while the Twin Reverb is clean almost all the way up. The power transformer and power tube circuitry is equal to the Super Reverb, but a smaller output transformer lowers the clean headroom and introduces sag and breakup. The amp is less powerful than both the Twin and Super Reverb and we’d place it somewhere between the Deluxe Reverb and Super Reverb. For many years it has been a relatively unknown amp. In the blackface and silver face years players wanted powerful amps, and the Pro Reverb was probably considered too weak.  In modern times where low wattage breakup has become desirable, the Pro Reverb has become very popular.

The 2×12″ speaker configuration can deliver lots of punch and powerful mids that cut through with a good sound spread on stage. Different speakers may alter the tone significantly in the Pro Reverb, as in all amps. A set of Celestions give you a British Marshall color with strong mids, while traditional Jensen-style speakers give you the classic Fender tone. Speakers are very difficult to recommend since the tone experience is nothing but personal taste. 

 

Will meet you in greater Detroit area to deliver, I would even drive half way to Kalamazoo for those HOCers who might be interested.

 

Would prefer not to ship but would work something out (buyer pays costs). I would want to remove the tubes, bubble wrap and ship it right.  With shipping materials it would probably be between 75 and 100 depending on your location (not as heavy as a twin, but not light weight either).

 

Here are the pics.  Buy it now before I post it on ebay.  Might be interested in trades, tell me what you got (really a buyers market now so have reasonable expectations).  As always though, prefer a PAYPAL sale or local Cash sale. Here are the PICS.
