Pure Tube Power and Tone

This Fender combo abounds with warm, dense tone thanks to its all-tube signal path. With two 6V6 output tubes, one 5AR4 rectifier tube, four 12AX7 preamp tubes, and a pair of 12AT7s all pushing a 12-inch Jensen speaker, this amp overflows with vintage tube flavor. Using the normal channel, the simple warm textures are ideal for gigging jazz players. There's also plenty of potential for some genuine tube overdrive, and this amp is ripe for classic rock and bluesy breakup. With such ample tube tone covering so many styles and sounds, it's little wonder how many pro rigs feature the Deluxe Reverb as their centerpiece.
