I have a Twin Reverb 65' RI and LOVED it when jamming with a band, but knowing what I know now, I would have opted for a much smaller amp. I do find it a lot more useful than any of the Hot Rods. The Hot Rods went from 0 to TOO LOUD very quickly. You really need to get an attenuator on it.Well, people are still buying Fender Twins and YCV80Qs so there are still some suckers for punishment out there.
6L6's in the HRD, and I love the clean channelThat's an excellent price. But I have never bonded with an HRD or to be more specific, fender amps with el84 tubes. Well except for '94 Pro Jr. I have. I don't find those amp doesn't produce the fender 'clean' that I am familiar with. But then that's based on what I hear which at this point is very unreliable. LOL
My amp tech will take the guts out of one of those, keep the transformers and sockets etc. and put in a super reverb circuit. Awesome combo then. But, yeah, unbelievable volume, touchy vol knob, only ok drive and the relays for channel switching often fail.
