The subject will be a CBS Fender Twin Reverb, yes this is the much "loved" Silver Face with the push-pull master control volume. Came to me stocked with the truly horrible Oxford speakers (also called "Oxfarts"). I found that a pair of Ted Weber Signature Ceramic 12" speakers, the British style, would be a perfect replacement set. A nice thing about these is they are fairly cheap and have pretty much rave reviews.

|The back of the amp as was.|
|With top panel removed.|
|Pulling speaker wires, it is important to remember with colored what goes which where.|
|The reverb tank has to come out as well, you can see where it used to be in a dust outline! Anyway, this is the empty cab as it sets. Be sure to scrape out any paper left from the gaskets of the old speakers.|
|Both speakers are in place!|
|Almost got it back together, you can see the exposed power tube sockets, as said earlier, put the power tubes back into the sockets they came out of so you don't effect the bias of the circuit (this is simply a precaution).|
A note here, I will be soon re-purposing this blog. I am returning to Kansas State University this spring and will be using this site as a journal for my activities and adventures there. Stay tuned if you wish.
