35W into 4 ohms - 4x + 2 X 12AT7 12AX7 preamp in - 2 x 6L6 power
2 x 10 "Celestion TEN 30 Speakers - for Crunchy Modern Tones said the pub?
1 8 Ohm output for HP Ext
2 independent channels, footswitchable Reverb / Vibrato
Reasonable weight about 20 Kg

The long-awaited news:
- Reverb and vibrato on 2 channels
- Channel 1 of voicing Bassman
- Bright switch on both channels

classic look and class


Ben simpler it's going to be difficult

Compared to the RI65 less acute scathing series, forcing owners to make changes. Personally the bright switch is often off especially at home position or you do not need aggression.

A word about the "crunchy tone" not before 8-9 with a telecaster ...
The only range that you can really enjoy the crunch is the Princeton


Honestly with a Stratocaster custom shop is paradise on both channels.
When using a Tele or LP, personally I prefer passing through an overdrive channel 1, here avoids having too dry sound.

Contrary to what I read on the Deluxe, from noise on mine (making compulsory land) and vibrato works great.

Channel 1 is well differentiated from that of the pedals or that one is getting stronger, the sound is crisp and flawless with distos, suddenly we use can push the amp and enjoy the power tubes and the décoiffe here.


I've tried the 4 models of custom series 68, while they sound great, the choice is difficult and is a story of personal discretion in the voicing is different compared to the deluxe 6V6 against 6L6, HP also.
While he did that clear channels this amp can play in any style because he accepts with a superb rendering all good pedals (see multi-effects) market.
