Product Description

Inspired by one of the world’s foremost jazz guitarists, George Benson, the all-tube GB Twin Reverb amp produces rich, punchy tone with smooth attack and singing sustain. Dignified looks and refined sound combine with lighter weight in this dream stage amp. Benson demands punch, power and tonality from his equipment, and this dual-channel combo delivers all three with soul to spare.

The GB Twin Reverb is an updated version of the venerable classic amplifier that has been tweaked to satisfy Benson’s discerning ears. The first tube on the Normal channel has been swapped for a 12AY7 tube, providing an alternate low-gain voice that’s ideal for smooth clean tone with complex midrange.

Fender GB Twin Reverb George Benson Amp Features

  • A quartet of powerful 6L6 power tubes
  • 85 watts
  • Elegant smoky gray vinyl covering
  • A pair of neodymium 12 inch 8-ohm Jensen Tornado 12 speakers 
Pristine definition is the name of the game with this amp—a pair of neodymium 12 inch 8-ohm Jensen Tornado 12 speakers reproduces his dynamic attack, with shimmering highs and plenty of bite when overdriven. These speakers’ reduced weight, plus the addition of a resonant solid pine cabinet, means that working guitarists can enjoy a total weight reduction of 13 pounds. A quartet of powerful 6L6 power tubes power this amp, providing 85 watts of power with plenty of headroom for clean jazz tones.

As refined as the music that inspired it, the GB Twin Reverb’s elegant smoky gray vinyl covering, silver sparkle grille cloth and front panel GB badge combine to create a dignified amplifier that looks equally at home in the living room or under stage lights. Sharp style and warm, round tone mixed with a surplus of sonic power and easy portability—the GB Twin Reverb is a player’s delight. Includes a protective cover.
