The Fender Princeton Reverb utilizes: (1) GZ34, (2) 6V6, (1) 12AT7, (1) 7025, and (2) 12AX7 tubes through a 1 x 10″ speaker.
While this amp is not in mint condition, it is still quite clean, and remains in remarkably nice all original working condition. The black vinyl tolex is beautifully intact and the original grill cloth is in perfect structural condition with no stains, and only one small puncture line the length of a nickel. Cosmetically, the amp is quite clean and would easily achieve a conservative 8.5/10 from the most strict of ratings.
The blackface control panel is really crisp with no evidence of input jack scratches or wear from the underside of the control knobs. All of the hardware is in very excellent shape with minimal light green oxidation on the chassis mount brackets.
The amp works perfectly and sounds fantastic. The single CTS 10″ speaker is perfectly efficient and crisp, which nicely facilitates the surprising volume and dynamic head-room. The reverb and vibrato both sound particularly great and highly pronounced. Having thoroughly inspected the amp, after leaving it on for approximately 15 minutes on Standby, it can be determined that the amp does not need to be serviced, and is ready to go.
This is a great sounding example in very nice condition, and would clearly make a superb addition to any arsenal, collection or studio.
