Fender add two new FSR amps to the range
Fender have given two more of their classic amps the FSR treatment and they sure look beautiful!
Here's what they say…
Fender have released ‘Special Run’ versions of two of their most famous tube combos, the ‘65 Princeton Reverb, in a range of cool colours and with a variety of speaker upgrades, and a Deluxe Reverb with mahogany cabinet and cane grill cloth. Very limited numbers will be available in the UK.
The ‘65 Princeton Reverb “Surf-Tone Green” FSR (pictured) is the perfect combination of retro styling and modern scream!
This Limited Edition Two-Tone FSR in Surf Green and Hot White harkens back to a 60s vibe while the warm midrange breakup of a Celestion Greenback G10 speaker adds a slightly more aggresive feel. It’s the perfect amp for small gigs that need a little extra growl and punch.
The original was a historically significant amp used on countless hits over the years, and the reissue ’65 Princeton Reverb is easily versatile enough to go from the living room to the recording studio to the small gig. It has the vintage vibe that Fender die-hards know and love, but the ’65 Princeton Reverb isn’t only for those who played them 30 or 40 years ago – it’s for anybody who demands top-notch tube tone, naturally dynamic clean and overdriven tones, and unmistakable long-spring Fender reverb and tube vibrato.
Unique features include a Surf Green and Hot White vinyl covering and a 10” 8-ohm Celestion Greenback G10; the perfect speaker for punchy mids and classic British crunch. Also includes “Limited Edition“ FSR badge.
Other Princeton FSR models include a ‘Surf-Tone Tangerine’ finish and a ‘Surf-Tone Blue’ both fitted out with a 10” 8-ohm Jensen P10R speaker.
The Deluxe Reverb ‘Mahogany Cane’ is an amp as toneful as it is beautiful! This African Mahogany with Cane grille cloth stunner is 22 watts of aural bliss. The perfect amp for rock, country or blues players who want a moderately powered amp they can crank up at the gig or in the studio.
The full, snappy guitar tones heard on many famous recordings from Memphis to Abbey Road were made using the Deluxe amp. The shimmering highs of the Celestion Blue speaker bring out subtle nuances when playing clean and midrange punch when cranked for super touch sensitivity.
Unique features to this amp include: Gorgeous stained African Mahogany cabinet, unique Cane grille cloth
and one 12” 8-ohm Celestion Blue speaker, the ultimate in Alnico warmth and complexity, from rounded lows to
brilliant bell-like highs.
