Fender Concert Reverb 4 x 10 opinions

I would be interested in any history and opinions of a Fender amp I have which is a Fender Concert Reverb 4 x 10.

When were they made? Why were they made? Wonder why they have been dropped?

I think the closest amp that Fender still makes is the Fender '65 Super Reverb 45-Watt 4x10

Mine has spec's of

50W all tube
Four - ten-inch speakers
Tube reverb (driving a spring reverb tank) and tube tremolo
Normal and drive with gain channels, 4 position footswitch
1/4-power switch
Effects loop

I think mine is from 1992???

Fifty watts of pure, glowing, purring 100% tube power delivers unbelievable richness, presence, sustain, and musical distortion. Blackface-style normal channel produces ringing, warm clean tones while the thermonuclear drive channel proves that an amp by itself can be all the tonal enhancement you need. Add 4 - ten-inch Eminence speakers and all-tube reverb and tremolo for a full range combo that'll leave you awestruck with your own fabulous tone. 1/4-power switch for low-volume crankin', effects loop, and included 4-button footswitch.

Essentially, it's a hotrodded '64 Super Reverb, more or less.

When were they made? You know that - the '90s. Maybe the very late '80s as well.

Why were they made? To sell amplifiers.

Why were they dropped? Guess they didn'r sell enough, plus they were replaced by the Super Sonic series.

Lives for gear
 

The 4 X 10" Fenders are one of my favorite combo amps. The tweed Bassman leads the pack of course. Nothing beats them as a stage amp.
Their main drawback was they didn't have reverb but playing live you didn't need it. You had the actual rooms reverb.
The Concert amps were very good too. I owned a 69 silver face super reverb back in the early 80's. Think I paid $150 in some hole in the wall music store.
Nice sounding amp so long as you kept good tubes in it. Not nearly as loud as my Blackface Bassman but it did break up nicely at lower volumes.
