’68 CUSTOM AMPLIFIERS
Fender’s ‘68 Custom range has become an extremely popular amp series for guitarists who love classic Fender sounds. This month, Fender expands that range with the addition of the ‘68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb and ‘68 Custom Pro Reverb.
At just 5 watts, the original Vibro Champ was famous for classic Fender tremolo, tube sparkle and killer grind at a reasonable level. The ’68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb improves on this classic amp by adding hall reverb and using a larger 10” speaker for increased low end. These additions make this little wonder perfect for rehearsal, home recording and even small gigs.
The new ’68 Custom Pro Reverb takes its cues from the original 40-watt model, improving its portability and tonal flexibility, resulting in an upgraded amp that is the perfect size and volume for almost any gig.
