Fender 1965 Princeton Reverb
The Fender Princeton is a perpetual favorite among Wildwood staff members because it works in almost any musical context. At lower volumes, it has a beautiful clean sound with sweet chiming highs, punchy mids, and tight, round low-end. When you crank it, you get a beautiful combination of sparkle and punch with just the right amount of overtone presence; in other words, the sort of sound that makes you grin from ear to ear when you play a big E chord. Because the Princeton doesn’t break up as early on the volume dial, it’s a great choice for players looking for a small amp to use as a pedal platform, too.
The ‘65 edition is a straight-up recreation of a vintage blackface Princeton. It has a “bright cap” in the circuit, which allows it to give you awesome-sounding breakup when you crank it—no pedals required. If you want classic tube breakup and sweet, chiming cleans at low volumes, the ‘65 will make big ‘ol hearts dance in your eyes.
