Fender's Princeton Reverb has a rich and storied history as one of the best low wattage tube combos made. Sweet low volume cleans with tube-driven spring reverb and a lush bias vary tremolo has made it a studio maven and a great small stage or club amp.
This is an excellent example of a later 70s Silverface Princeton Reverb, having been lovingly maintained throughout its life. It's become less common to see these examples in their stock formation, so having one that's complete in that regard is always nice! The original Oxford 10J4 dates from the 20th week of 1977 and is working great. All original transformers throughout are operating within spec. The amp has just been gone through by our favorite local amp tech, Stan Day, who had to do very little work on it beyond some standard TLC (a few caps and a replaced 12AT7 to be exact).
Condition: Excellent-. Besides the marring on the faceplate below the 'Princeton' graphic (done to eliminate a prior owner's social security number!), it's about as clean as they come! Tolex is in great condition, grill cloth is clean and tight with very little fraying, the original Fender logo is clean with no breaks, and all hardware is very clean with little patina or wear. Many of the tubes are original stock or ANOS Fender-labeled GE tubes.
