Anyone who has a Fender Twin Reverb

Hey guys!

Got a Fender Twin Reverb 1965 RI about 2 months ago, LOVE IT!!! I love lots of clean headroom so it's perfect for me!

I am just curious as to what settings you guys use on your twin? I play a Fender Standard Strat and a Gibson Les Paul Studio. I play blues and jazz.

Look forward to seeing your responses!

Play it in stereo with a 68 Plexi.

I guess you're not going to crank that bad boy for overdrive....That's a great amp.

IMO, if you're using it for a Strat and LP, the Twin sounds great with both.

To start: Get a Tube Screamer-ish pedal. Every Fender I've owned seems to come alive at about 3 and get better from there. Turn the amp up to about 3, treble 5-6, mid 6-7 for the Strat and 5-6 with the LP, bass 3-4.

Should do for starters. Adjust for room size and type, pickup used, etc.

The magic ratio is as follows:

6 volume
6 treble
3 mid
2 bass
2 reverb

Know as the magic ratio. Remeber 632

haha, basically my exact same setup, except my '68 plexi is a Germino remake (still sounds phenomenal!) and my twin is a Blackface.

I play it about mid-volume with the bass around halfway and the treble and mids up pretty high, and will push it with a Fulltone Fulldrive 2. You're never going to get bad sounds out of the twin, you just sometimes have to be careful you don't get too bright, because they really can get piercing...

But let's just say you shouldn't have a problem cutting through the mix on stage.

bass between 3 and 4 most of the time, treble between 5 and 6, maybe lower depending but never much above 6 mods between 6 and 10 depending and bright switch off unless I am going for a super clean/clicky almost solid state tone then I'll turn the bright switch on and turn the treble down a bit more...anyway, reverb on 2 and a half or so and volume depending on venue and needs...

I had a 65' Blackface Twin that sounded good at any volume and setting.....but really screamed when dimed with my LP......the windows in the house and the neighbors couldn't take it....so I eventually sold it...but that's one tone I still have in my head that makes me smile...

To get some natural tube tone with a LP try treble around 4,mids 7,bass 2 or lower,volume 3-4 it should get you started use a T/S type pedal.:BEER

I'm running my '74 Twin through the bright channel with volume at 5, treble at 4, mids at 6 and bass at 6.

You guys seem to be running the bass at muuuuuuuuuuuch lower levels. I must be a little weird but i love its bass frequencies
