Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb

All Tube Electric Guitar AmplifierAfter giant racks with pre- and power amplifiers and expensive studio effects have been state of the art in the 80s, more traditional systems (head + 4X12 or a combo and a handful of stomp boxes) are more common at the moment again. A small amplifier keeps reappearing again and again: The Fender Deluxe Reverb. Compared to the larger Twin Reverb the Deluxe has a lot less power and has a harmonic overdrive even at moderate volume levels. Of course, great clean tones are possible, but the versatile "sweet distortion" is what so many guitarists appreciate and love with the Deluxe. Therefore the amp is the number 1 for many blues musicians, as well as for modern super guitarrists, such as Michael Landau. The fender-typical spring reverb and a tube vibrato effect allow even more "vintage"- sound variants.

Deluxe Reverb is one of the best sounding tube amps out there

Bogdan T., 26.12.2013
I bought this one year ago, after having used a vintge 70s one in the studio for recording my album. Tube amp iso a must for me, as i only use analogue effects.

Sound: like most Fender tube amps, this sounds PERFECT. Clean all the way through volume level 4, slightly crunchy at 5-6, distorted after 7. This amp does NOT have a distorted/crunchy/overdrive channel, this gets done the old fashioned way, adjusting the volume level. I use it at 4, which is still clean, but very bright, but my sound is enhanced permanently using an Ibanez Tube Screamer (TS9) at 20% gain. I use the Vibrato channel, as i just love the reverb ( real spring reverb!) and i keep it at level 3. I don't really use the tremolo effect on the amp, i find it a bit too soft (using a Marshall tremolo pedal instead).

I use a Fender Jaguar and a Gibson LP, the amp sounds really perfect with both single coils and with humbuckers. When i switch from the Jaguar to the Gibson, i just turn Treble up from 5 to 6, and Bass down from 6 to 5.

I use it at home now, i don't play in a band these days. I use it through a Koch Dummybox Home (and a Vox mini-amp at rhe end) to play through headphones most of the times. I imagine that using this for small gigs, for me at leadt, would surely need amplification, as you cannot crank it up too much if you want to keep it sounding clean (as it does not have a Clean channel); so i would keep it at volume 4, which gives the sound i need, and amplify it (maybe with the dummyload!).

I'm not rating this 5 for features and handling as it is not really for everyone, anyone. No loop circuit for effects rig, no overdrive channel, the Power and Stand-by switches are in the back (but you get the hang of that in a coupke of weeks), and it is pretty heavy for only 22W. BUT that is all in the name of keeping it identical to the original Deluxe, and rhe result is pretty good, my guitars sound the same as through the vintage one that got me into Deluxe Reverb in the firrst place.

Good and heavy, tonally, literally

Its a good small gigging and recording amp but it needs attenuatior for bedroom level. Vibrato channel comes from heaven but it hasn't got optoisolator likes US version; because of the EU restrictions it has a board that controls tremolo effect, same tube driven but you may optimize for low-noise tremolo popping with a technician.
