It might not be the biggest amp out there, but the Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Combo Amp can be heard around the world. It wouldn’t be stretching to suggest more records have been cut using a Blackface Fender Deluxe Reverb than any other amplifier.
Deluxe Reverb's great tone, convenient size and reliability make them fixtures in studios everywhere. But they make great club amps, too, since they’re compact, transport easily and offer plenty of volume for a variety of styles.
The tone is pure Fender. 22 watts from 2 Groove Tube 6V6 power tubes, simple treble and bass controls, and a single 12” Jensen C12K define clean, classic American sound. Tube-driven reverb moves easily from shimmer to surf, and Fender’s vibrato is the industry standard. Both can be accessed with the included footswitch.
From early rock and R&B to country, jazz and pop—wherever music is made—Deluxe Reverb amps are highly regarded as a yardstick for great tone.
Why We Like It
Fender has made a lot of great amps through the years, but none more popular or widely used than the Deluxe Reverb. They have a full sound, great vibrato and reverb; they're solidly constructed and compact. Most of us here at Corner Music have relied on a Deluxe at some point to record or gig around town. Your sound is probably in here, too. You can’t go wrong with a Deluxe.
