Ok, those of you guys who have vintage amps, i would like to find out if i got a good deal or not.
I payed $170 for a 1960's (not sure on the exact date) Fender Twin Reverb. It has 100 watts, new 6l6 power tubes, but a little skuffed up and one of the speakers needs to be replaced.

Also, should i put EL-34's in it, i'm not to sure if it is supposed to have 6l6's.

good choice on replacing them w/ cellestion..

But usually reverb effects on combo amps can easily run out the circuits.

Is there anything i can do to prevent it, and after it runs out, can i fix it.

wow. who did you fool? you just got it for like 1/5 of the real price


Well, the man who was selling it originally was gonna sell it for $200. Its not in the best condition. It has a lot of road wear, new grill cloth, 1 bad speaker. I ordered a set of V-30's, the original fender speaker distorts when it isn't loud. Its a little too broken, i'd probably sell it for a pretty penny on ebay.

I found a site with all kinds of replacement parts, i'm gonna overhaul this amp. Burgandy tolex, tweed grill cloth, V-30s, Groove Tubes, new cable for the footswitch.

I put in a crate speaker from my other amp, it finally got to play it today, its soooo clean sounding, i love it, but when i turn the mid knob it sounds like cruchy static, but stops when i stop turning the nob.
