Princeton Reverb II - Schematic and More!
last update Nov 09
This page refers ONLY to
the Rivera-era Fender Princeton Reverb II guitar amplifier (1982-86).
(There are many Fender Princetons,
all different - click on 'home' above to see a picture of this amp.)
The schematic is shown below, but you can click
here to download a .pdf file (Adobe reader needed) showing the PRII's schematic, parts list and wiring
The image below was taken from Fenderholic's excellent website. I am
posting it here only because his/her 'site seems to have been 'down'
for a while. (Come back soon, Fenderholic! it's a great site!).
This is a .gif file and I suggest you right-click on the image,
save it in your computer, and print it out. Now. It's an uncertain

Safety / Damage Disclaimer
Valve (tube) amps develop LETHAL VOLTAGES while
running, and store them in charged components EVEN WHILE SWITCHED OFF
AND DISCONNECTED FROM MAINS SUPPLY. These voltages are MUCH HIGHER than
mains, and higher than anything you’ll find inside a transistorized
If this scares you, good. Inside a chassis, don’t use your fingers to
touch anything which isn’t insulated or earthed (grounded). Don’t stick
more than one hand in at a time, and keep the other hand well away. Use
fine-nose pliers to manipulate components. If you’re not sure what
doing, get local help.
