Dating back to the the K&F days, the Princeton amp has remained a feature of the Fender catalogue right through to the present day. Originally the smallest of the amp line, the Princeton grew to legendary status that far outstretched its initial student monicker and even became the basis of Randall Smith’s foray into amp building. The Princeton Reverb was introduced in 1965 and became a studio favourite.
Cosmetically this amp is in stunning condition, not a knock or scratches to be seen, the tolex as glossy as the day it left the factory. The grill cloth is in excellent shape too, fade free. Control face is clean and mark free
Internally everything is as would be expected. The vast majority solder joints are undisturbed and components left unchanged aside from a few minor, passive ones required to keep the amp running and sounding great (which it does!)
The speaker is correct and tear free. The reverb tank is correct and works well.
The amp comes with its original cover too which is not something you see every day.
This amp lives up to its reputation. Its plenty loud enough to cope with studio/home or stage use. The tremolo circuit is nice and strong and the reverb adds a fantastic depth to the sound. It breaks up nicely whilst retaining that Fender clarity. A truly inspiring amp.
We don’t often sell amps but we find these are always popular and this one has to be the cleanest around. Grab it whilst you still can as this is the cleanest one we have seen for years…
