    Default 76’ Twin Reverb

    Years ago I got this 76 Twin Reverb and I played it for a while but I was sensing some disturbance in the force. I purchased some JJ Eurotubes and did the bias but the disturbance remained. I pulled the chassis and sent it off to my guy in New Mexico. He did a complete re-cap and cleaned up the wiring along with a Blackface mod. Now the amp is better than new and sounds great with my Gibbys and my Fenders. Still has original speakers installed. I had toyed with the idea of some Weber speakers but not sure on that. Currently I am am making plans for him to build me a JTM 45 amp but that would be another discussion. Anyway I love this amp and she is a heavy beast on wheels.

    Happy New Year to everyone!

    I was going to try to add a pic but I don’t really know how to trim the size for an upload. It says file is too large. Oh well.
    You're in my sight, but there's a mist on my lens!

    Congrats. I've never played a Fender twin but sure would like to.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    My first experience with electric guitar was playing a friend's axe through his Twin Reverb. It changed my life. They are amazing boxes. Congratulations, Doug!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Awesome sounding amps, and one of the most pedal friendly platforms ever designed.
    Whether you think you can...or you can't...you're right!

    Some mistakes are just too much fun to only make once!!!

    Way heavier than I want to carry nowadays and too much headroom. My heaviest is a Low Power Tweed Twin. 58 pounds.
