The first catalog appearance of a new, high-end, Fender guitar amplifier, the Quad Reverb, which was launched along side the Super Six Reverb (see the following page) in 1972. Both, like the existing Twin Reverb from which they were derived, were 10 tube, 100w combos, but each with a different speaker arrangement. The Quad Reverb, as the name suggests had four 12" speaker cones, the Super Six, six 10". Like the (new for '72) Fender Twin, it also the master volume/distortion control.
The Quad Reverb was first listed in the US in the February '72 price list, with a choice of speaker types, priced as follows: $675 (standard Fender 12" speakers); $965 (JBL D-120F); $1095 (Fender PS 12).
