Fender Twin Reverb Guitar Amplifier Cover Review


The Fender Twin Reverb is one of Fenders most popular amplifiers, and I love mine to death. I felt pretty bad that dust would pile up on it while it sat around my studio, so I set out to find a nice cover for it.

I like keeping my combo amps covered when I am not using them for plenty of good reasons. A decent cover will keep dust and sunlight (and spilled beer) out, and keep it looking like new. Also, if I am taking it somewhere it will help protect it from rain or scuffs and scratches when loading it into my vehicle. So, I looked around on the internet and the best value for me was the factory cover, part number 005-025-000.

When it showed up, there were no surprises. It is made of heavy nylon with piping stitched around the handle opening and the edges. There is no padding, so it will not protect against hard hits, but I knew this coming into the deal.

It is well-sewn, and it fits easily over the amp chassis with no troubles. There is enough extra room so it is easy to take on and off. I have seen some covers where they are so tight that they fit like a sausage, and they are a major league pain in the backside private parts to use. That is not the case here.

Anyway, there is no drama and the Fender factory cover does exactly what it is supposed to. If you have a Twin Reverb there is no excuse not to get a cover for it.

The best thing about this thing is the price: the Fender Twin Reverb amplifier cover has a list price or $24.99 with a street price of $19.99. It is worth every penny!
