Anyone have any experience? Any good? Image

I know it's not the deluxe reverb or twin reverb everyone goes nuts about. Just wondering if this amps anywhere in that range or is it their budget amp from that time.

That thing is awesome! You lucked out.

A lot of the guys like these because you can get Twin Reverb tones without quite as much ungodly volume since they're 40W instead of 85/115

Cool!
I was bummed about no master volume,
but I didn't know later ones came with it.
Wonder if I could mod it to have a master..

Anyways the price was right.
Guess I'll have to look into some distortion

Happy NAD! Pro Reverbs are very useful and great sounding amps. Nice that it's an early Silverface version. Like all old amps it could benefit from service / checkup by a good amp tech to get the best from it. Once it's running great it could be interesting to experiment with different speakers to see what works best for your musical needs. Enjoy!

available photo will show late (1980s) black face version, but these specs are for the Silver face and black face reissue
Looking at the schematic .... not a bad amp by all accounts

As stated,an early SF one.

As the price was right what i´d do is search the net a bit and make up your mind what you want it to do. Of course you can always keep it as it is.
If it hasn´t been serviced though and seing that you´re not out a bundle i for one would at least check that and if not have it done.

Love these. If I ever needed a big Fender amp again a Pro Reverb would be it. Great score.

I've never heard a bad one from that era, congrats!
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Nice.

Black-line Pro Reverb, missing the drip edge. It's from 1967-1968. Good amp.
