Just when you think you've seen it all, something like this 1964 Fender Princeton Reverb comes through and excites all the vintage nerves in your body.
For all intents and purposes, this Princeton Reverb checks out as one of the earliest production 'Blackface' versions made. This 12-watt 1x10 combo represents the earliest Blackface AA964 circuit, which was far and away the most short-lived variant of the era.
It comes as no surprise that - based on the condition of the amplifier - all of those critical tonal components are present and fully operational, including all of the transformers and signal caps. A few fresh electrolytics, some new filter caps, and a resistor or two replaced the tired and out-of-spec originals that commonly drift and leak signal/DC causing intermittent noise. A newer Eminence-made 'blue label' alnico 10" speaker also replaced the original Oxford many years ago. Otherwise, it's all there (it's even got the original footswitch!).
The Princeton Reverb is the leader of the pack when it comes to compact, low-power tone. A studio maven, a home favorite, and a stage sleeper, there's little a great Princeton Reverb like this can't do.
