The Blackpanel Fender Pro Reverb has skyrocketed in popularity over the years, though it took a while to get there. Considered "too weak" for the mid-1960s market, today they're beloved for their signature Blackface sound and breakup at much more manageable volumes than a Twin Reverb or the piggyback amps.
This particular example was built for export, having a multi-voltage transformer, she's ready for your next European tour. This amp has had the caps replaced, an attached 3-prong AC cord was added. The Fender labeled Utah speakers are out of a 74-75 Fender Pro Reverb and sound killer! We have it listed as being a 1967 model but all the transformer codes date to mid-1966. The tube chart stamp is one means of dating Fender amps, and the QB stamp there calls this amp out as being from February of 1967.
Standing in at 40 watts with two 12" speakers, The Pro Reverb is sometimes considered a dialed-back Twin - smaller transformers, half the power tubes and a tube rectifier produce a saggier sound that drives much earlier. This fantastic stage amp has seen a renaissance over the last couple decades and has become a wildly popular stage amp for bands touring mid-sized clubs.
