Fender Quad Reverb

The Fender Quad Reverb was a direct descendent of the Fender Twin Reverb. Both featured the same circuitry, but while the Twin had two speaker cones, the Quad had four.

1972 Fender Price list announcing the Fender Quad and Super Six amplifiers 1972 Fender Price listThe Fender Quad Reverb was launched with a price of $675, $965, or $1095; depending on which speaker cones were fitted. Image taken from the 1972 Fender price list.

Along with another amp in the series (the six-coned Super Six Reverb), the Quad was launched in 1972. It was available in 3 speaker varieties ranging in price from $675 to $1095. The speaker cones available were standard Fender 12", Fender PS 12, or JBL D-120F.

The following comes from the 1976 Fender catalogue

A real high performance machine, the Quad Reverb revs up with 100 watts RMS power. Your engine really roars, thanks to the heavy-duty, wide range 12" speakers. And check out the channels, each with separate controls and two instrument inputs. With master volume control, you can steer your sound straight down the track or add any degree of distortion. Whatever sound you want, the Quad Reverb is built to travel hard and fast

I used to use a quad reverb and a roland jc-120 with 2 MXR distortion plus's set about half to accentuate the even harmonics.Boy,it DID sound like a HUGE squeaking barn door.When I added 2 15 inch PA speakers,it got the bass going enough to be OK.Didn't know they are a twin Twin.Yep,sounded nice indeed.
