Fender Deluxe Reverb

25W Combo (1 x 1")

Made by Fender

Description 68 Deluxe Reverb (on the cusp of CSB era) been blackfaced and has Weber AlNico. Sounds absolutely divine. Loud enough to growl and wail, yet won't be over the top. Very expressive and warm - sings like a lark. Yum

Overall Rating:
I choose this amp because of the tone I had heard from other players when I was a kid. I also liked the low wattage which gives the ability to simply scream at low volumes - which is really the best of both worlds.
Model Year: 1968
Price: $800.00
Where Obtained: E-bay
Channel 1 = 2 inputs, Volume, Bass, Treble Channel 2 = 2 inputs, Volue, Bass, Treble, Reverb, vibrato speed, vibrato intensity (depth) No effects loops, no channel switching. Comes with footswitch to turn on/off reverb and vibrato.
Sound Quality:
The "brown" sound. I never really knew what that definition meant, but somehow I had that sound in my head. The amp gets it right on the mark. I play a Fender strat through it, as well as a Les Paul. It is certainly loud enough for the music I play. Lovely warm cleans and tasty juicy distortion with a healthy crunch. The amp just breathes. Sounds especially nasty with the Les Paul. If I need a little more gain or creamy distortion, I use a modded DS-1. The caveat = no Mid EQ. This is the only bummer. As you know, Mid is the core of tone shaping. I suppliment it with an EQ pedal and Bob's my uncle. Well worth the tone I get.
Ease of Use:
Easy to use. Turn it on and go. Its a good habit to use the Standby switch before and after....other than that, no worries.
My tubes last about a year and a half with pretty regular playing. I don't chuck it in the back of the van, however. It needs a little love when being transported.
