    Hey guys. Without volume and headroom being an issue, What are the tonal differences between a twin reverb and a super reverb? I can't decide :D


    Also, do they have the same reverb tank? Or is the reverb different?

    Thanks!

    get the super! gives up the tone at a lower volume..... others will comment about the tonal differences.... twin is clean for days.... super can get a bit crunchy. 4-10's sound amazing.... I'm totally NOT answering your question..... off I go! sorry! oh and buy the super! thanx! do it! go !

    I have a blackface Twin and it's incredible, especially if volume isn't an issue for you. The cleans are excellent, the cranked tone is awesome, and it sounds so big. I run mine boosted HARD from the front by a clean boost (Bad Bob). Yes, it's loud enough to seriously injure both small children and the elderly, but it sounds so damn good.

    I believe the reverb tanks are identical in all of the Fender blackface reverb models.

    Super reverb, definitely... Breakup around 5 with single coils, around 3 with humbuckers

    Comparing the Twin Reverb with the Super Reverb, both Reissues and side by side with a Les Paul, the Super seems to have a more scooped midrange, a bit "drier" sounding than the Twin.

    Super Reverb is more punchy IMO

    I have twins and super reverbs, the super reverb sounds so good, more punchi more clear in the highs. The twin has a great tone but the super is always better to me. The 4x10 is always a great tone.

    I think the reverb tank is the same.

    Before I got caught up in a world of boogies, I had a Super Reverb and a Twin.

    Still keeping the boogies, but when I can justify it, I'm getting another Super.

    Tone wise, a Twin is what it is, probably the best tube clean sound around. The super can get that, but also some sag and break at what loud guitarists call a reasonable volume.
