The Twin reverb output transformer is designed to work most efficiently with the following impedances/loads and tube power configurations: The plate voltage will increase a little when two of the tubes are removed.Ideally you should have the amp re-biased to not run the two remaining tubes too hard.If the number you have (A59871) is the code, then I'd agree it may be a '71, or some of the information I read could also say that it was built in the 17th week of '89 (if you read it backwards for amp models built after the '70s). hank By entering this site you declare you read and agreed to its Terms, Rules & Privacy and you understand that your use of the site's content is made at your own risk and responsibility.That's the best I can come up with, right now, but I have a few other sources I'll ask, too. I did alot of reserch on the net also and the other night I found a site that said, Check the numbers on the transformer. The voltage levels on the plus- and minus-sides of the output transformer’s primary circuit remains the same whith two and four 6L6 tubes.
Sadly, we are seldom offered the opportunity to turn the volume above 3 on a Twin Reverb.The code follows the format: = a number from 1 - 52 indicating the week of manufacture.Remember, your amp is newer than the newest component.This is exactly what the amp is made for, being played unmiked in in a gospel band in a 300-seat church every Sunday.It is designed not break up like the other Fender amps.I also apologize for not having a lot of photos of mint Silverface equipment.Presently, I personally own only two well worn Silverface road warriors, a 1971 Champ, and a 1972 Bassman 50 (AA371).With just a few simple tricks you can make your Twin break up earlier like the more versatile Pro Reverb 2×12″ and Deluxe Reverb 1×12″.You’ll need schematics to implement some of these mods. We usually start with explaining a mod from a functional perspective where we relate to components in the logical schematics diagram.I am merely someone that loves old gear, appreciates Silverface amps, loves to write, and loves history.Summary “If an alien came to earth and wanted to hear an American guitar sound, I’d play him my Twin with a set of Jensens”. Having two pairs of 6L6, the popular and traditional two-channel AB763 circuit design, a diode rectifier and enormous transformers (power & output), it offers tons of clean headroom and volume for unmiked gigs and really big stages.
