Fender Deluxe Reverb "Blackface" [1963-1967]
This tube amp is currently my favorite amp that I've played. It's a reissue of the original '65 design, with two clean channels (normal and vibrato) and two inputs for each. There aren't any effects loops but there is a good reverb and a sick vibrato that are built-in. They work the same way they did back then, which is pretty basic. There are two volume knobs, a master volume, three tone controls, reverb and vibrato settings that are turned on or off with an old-school gray foot switch. Keep in mind that you have to plug into the vibrato channel to activate the effect.

UTILIZATION

This thing is great, but it's heavy and delicate. Definitely do not attempt to move it too far on your own, especially if it means lifting it (for your health and the health of the amp!) If you move it and are too rough with it, it will take its time to sound right again. I moved it from my basement to my bedroom (2 flights) and it took about an hour before it started to really cook again. Also, the reverb broke at one point just because the wires popped while I was moving it. That being said, it's worth it if you can handle it right. Getting good sounds out of it is as easy as turning it on usually. Any studio owner who doesn't have one of these needs to look into getting one. I've personally never even opened the manual (never needed to) but I think that most players who can afford it will be able to figure it out pretty easily.

SOUNDS

My style of music tends to be more retro rock, garage rock, and alternative/country/folk-tinged rock. I play a '67 strat reissue and I've never heard it sound better through anything else, especially for this kind of music. The sounds range from clean and pretty to bluesy and gritty. The amp can really rip and can cut through in most live settings. When cranked, the natural distortion sound is better than any I've ever heard. There's no dirty channel, so for those who need more heavy distortion, a pedal is the way to go. I never really liked distortion pedals (I preferred distortion straight from the amp) until I tried a Boss DS-1 with one of these amps, and the sound was enough to change my mind about them. I tend to only use that pedal for leads anyway, as the amp on its own is powerful enough to get a phenomenal rhythm sound out of it for any music that doesn't require heaps of gain or feedback. Metal and Punk players are advised to look elsewhere. Anyone into newer indie like Pavement, Wilco, or classic rock like The Band or The Byrds will dig this amp. You may not sound exactly like all of them but the vibe will be there.

OVERALL OPINION

I just got this amp and I've never been more thrilled. I was a little skeptical the first time I played one because it didn't have a dirty channel (I am a rock player after all), but after trying it with the DS-1 and my Boss Compressor/Sustainer I ended up buying both the amp and the DS-1. I've played Marshalls, Fender Twins, Vox AC10s, Mesa/Boogie stacks, and Fender Hot Rods, and while a few of those have great sounds on their own terms, this one absolutely tops the list for me. The feeling you get when strumming a chord while the amp is hot is enough to make you smile. I feel like I let the guitar and amp play themselves nowadays, as opposed to the way I used to have to force good sounds out of gear with a lot of effort and by pushing it as far as it could go. Its pretty expensive but I'll say this: don't settle for less. If you try this and know that it's the amp for you, save up and get it. You'll thank yourself in the long run. I'll never regret this choice.

Fender Deluxe Reverb "Blackface" [1963-1967]
This amp is amazing, it really sounds fender and sixties. Mine is in this era and those old t Custom by homeowners. They changed the transformer model for a larger virtual and the lamp for a rectifier diode bridge for 6v6 and 6L6 boogie. Obviously the tubes are more original, but does not change the authenticity of the thing, I think.

Mine crachotte death right now, certainnement lot of condos and other changes since the bug is really in its own juice. The mess that was believed dead is formidable despite his age and his size. I hope that I could re-state fairly quickly and enjoy the direct sound and rich.

UTILIZATION

- Gets it easy to sound good?

No need to mess with the knobs too much to realize that sounds, you just have to play well! like any other amp dailleurs Listen then, and you should play or not.

SOUNDS

Is it your style of music?

Obviously should the Blues and the like because it is really nice clean sound. I like a little less with a rendering of distortion pedals, but I did that with Boss pedals (Japanese).

OVERALL OPINION

Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ...

certainnement yes but I would say my friend who sold it to me to do rviser fully and THEN sell it to me! I do not at anyone
