This is a vintage 100% all original 1961 Fender Reverb Unit! This particular example, serial number R00638, is in very excellent, near mint, condition and comes with the original Victoria canvas cover! This tube spring reverb-equipped tank is perfect for both the players lacking a good reverb on their amp, and the Fender amp collectors desiring the cleanest possible example available! Some throw the term “mint condition” around rather carelessly when describing nice, clean items, but after inspecting the photos to the right, you too will be searching for a new term that appropriately describes the cleanest of the clean.
Serial Number: R00638
Transformer Codes: 68319A, 606120, 606113
Tube Chart Date: KJ (October 1961)
The brown vinyl tolex exterior is in extremely excellent condition. The wheat grill cloth is not faded, and still looks very crisp and attractive. There are no snags, rips, or tears in the grill and the appearance and structural integrity is very fine. The control panel is also crisp and clean with some few small blemishes. All of the hardware is in very excellent condition, the chassis is quite clean, with no evidence of damage, let alone signs of oxidation, or indications of leaky/exploded capacitors.
The Fender Reverb Unit was introduced in 1961 and was offered in blonde tolex, and offered in brown in late ’61-63. The Fender Reverb utilizes; (1) 6K6 (1) 12AT7 and (1) 12AX7 tubes through the Fender Reverb Tank. This particular example is in 100% original condition. It retains the original transformers, electrolytics and all board caps, as well as the tubes.
The Reverb works perfectly and sounds fantastic. Do not miss out on this great deal!
