For rock, country or blues players that want a moderately powered amp they can crank up on the gig or in the studio. The fat, snappy guitar tones heard on many of our favorite recordings, from Memphis to Abbey Road, were made using the Deluxe.  The "new" '65 Deluxe Reverb is living proof of the quality and longevity of Fender amp designs. Over the years, many musicians have found the versatile Deluxe Reverb a perfect match for surf, rock, blues, soul, country and every music style in between.

Featuring Reverb and Vibrato, this two-channel amp has been used on thousands of recordings and countless live performance since 1963 when the first version appeared on the music scene.  The '65 Deluxe Reverb is a faithful reproduction of an original 1965 Deluxe Reverb model AB 763. Every effort has been made to keep the circuitry exactly like the original. For improved reliability and manufacturing efficiency, a printed circuit board for the components is used in place of the original phenolic parts panel. The power and output transformers used in the 22-watt '65 Deluxe Reverb are built to the original specifications and although some components used in this re-issue amplifier are different in size and shape from the earlier version, the component values are identical.

The speaker is a duplicate of the original Jensen 12-inch "Specially Designed For Fender" speaker used during the 1960's.  The '65 Deluxe Reverb is the ultimate "club amp" for blues, rock or country, or for studio recording applications. Big enough to cut through the mix, but small enough to turn up and wail. The '65 Deluxe features 22-watts, one 12" special design speaker, 2 channels (normal, vibrato), all-tube circuitry, tube vibrato, tube spring reverb, Black-face cosmetics, and a 2-button footswitch for reverb & vibrato.

          This is a reissue of one of my favorite guitar amps of all time. I have yet to discover another model that offers the warmth and versatility of the Fender Deluxe Reverb. There is a reason professionals and rock/blues legends refer to this amp for their recording tones and performances. A big sound from a relatively small amp. I wholeheartedly recommend this model for any aspiring guitarist or professional player.

            Sometimes there's beauty in simplicity. I believe this model has survived the ages due to it's absolute ease of use, offering a very distinct and yet versatile range of tones, all with minimal adjustment required.. If you've never played one, put it at the top of your list. This fender classic has a legendary clean tone that is unmatched by much else. Rich. Fat. Warm. Powerful. A true joy to play through.

              This amp is a spot on reissue of a '65 Deluxe, it has beautiful warmth, sparkling cleans, and is very loud. If you're looking for that classic, iconic Fender clean tone, look no further. I would recommend this amplifier for anyone who is looking for a clean tone in studio, or who needs to move some air in a medium size venue.

                This is a reissue of a classic that will never go out of style. The Fender Deluxe Reverb has earned a legendary reputation of providing one of the most sought after clean tones in guitar history. The warm, rich tone that comes from this amp sounds great live as well as in recordings. The pure, clean tone allows pedals to be heard true without any unwanted coloration. This amp is compact enough that it will travel well to any practice or gig while still providing ample power for just about any situation. The built in reverb is incredible and lush. The Fender Deluxe Reverb is one of the most trustworthy tube amplifiers you can buy.

                    This 22 watt fender amp packs a big punch. The 1/12 inch Jensen speaker is a perfect match for this amp. This amp is one of the cleanest sounding amps on the market. With the built in reverb, any of the electric guitars you have in your arsenal, their sound will sparkle through this amp. Better yet this amp is very portable. Recording with it is a dream come true.

                      Hands down along with its Brother the reverb custom these are my favorite amps, Great clean sound coupled with the amazing reverb tones. If your a fan of using pedals then this amp is for you. It will take to any pedal like its meant to be on the amp. If your a metal guy you wont find what you want here but pretty much any other style of music will have a nice fit with this amp. If your looking for vintage tube tone and classic fender sound and vibe look no further then the deluxe reverb reissue, it will NOT disappoint.

                        Probably the most popular tube amp ever made. These reissues are identical in sound to the vintage ones that go for double the price. I sold my original 1966 as the reissue had a better sound. If your looking for a warm clean sound with excellent reverb and tremolo this is the one. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music
