Best valves for Fender Concert Reverb amplifiers

Fender Concert Reverb

Looking for great sounding valves for Fender Concert Reverb and Fender Concert II amplifiers? You’ve come to the right place.

Best valves for Fender Concert Reverb amplifier.

The Fender Concert Reverb and Fender Concert II amplifier use:

  • 5 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valves.
  • 1 x ECC81 (12AT7) for position V3
  • 1 x balanced ECC81 for the phase splitter position (V7)
  • 2 x 6L6GC matched power valves/power tubes.

The V1 position is the one closest to the input jack and V7 is closest to the power valves.

Very early models from 1960 (see our details of the amp below) have 1 less preamp valve so do check your model before ordering.

Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding like new again. We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune.

Remember, JJ is one of only four manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies. Amplifier manufacturers do not make valves. They simply rebrand the valves from the big manufacturers.

Order your valves for below and hear the difference.

About the amp

Production of the Fender Concert amplifier can be split over 2 phases. The first of these from 1960 and until 1965. During this period, the Concert was essentially the same amplifier as the Vibrasonic but with four 10″ speakers.

The first models, the 5G12 made late 1959 to early 1960 had one less preamp valve so do check if yours is a very early model.

Tthe Concert was updated by Paul Riviera in the early 1980s (“Concert II”).

A 1 x 12″ variant of the Fender Concert amp also appeared in the mid-1990s.

So order your tubes today and get your amp sounding better than ever.
