Hey!

This is my amp:

(picture is identical, but not mine. Only picture of the same model I could find on the entire internet).

I acquired it a while ago from a family member, and I know very little about it except that it's very loud. I'm not sure if it's been modified at all, and google isn't being very helpful (all the twin reverbs I see have two aircraft-style toggle switches for standby/on and this has two lightswitch style).

I know it's a Fender Twin Reverb, but I'm not sure how many incarnations of twin reverb there were before this one. Which generation of twin reverb is it?

How many watts is it? Which year(s) was it made? What speakers did it have originally? Is it a decent amp? How much is it worth?

I'd be really grateful for any information you can give me!

early 80s attempt to update the twin design. not vey popular with fender purists but seems like a good amp. check ebay for value.

rivera era blackface from early/mid 80's. it was the next gen after the silverface models. it was the last generation of fender amps that was large production handwired on a turret board.

rivera (same dude from here http://www.rivera.com/ ) was picked up by fender to redesign amps to compete with the 'hot-rodded' versions that were popping up all over. they usually have some pull knobs on there for boosting certain signals.

they are not exactly rare and are only somewhat desirable from a collector standpoint. not a bad amp at all, but not the best twin they ever made. should take pedals pretty well.

they also had a head version of the amp.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.
