The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain-staging.
By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the Custom Series can deliver everything from a clean VOX “chimey” sound to a powerful overdriven tone.
Clear, deep and powerful, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects.
For countless guitarists ever since, the Twin Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.

The '68 Custom Twin Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender's late-'60s "silver- face" amps.
In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the "custom" channel has a modified Bassman tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals.
