FACTOIDS & TRIVIA

The blackface Fender Deluxe Reverb amp is considered by many players and collectors to be the finest combo amp with on-board reverb that Fender ever produced. It was one of the most popular amps of its time and remains so today. At 24 watts, it is loud enough for use in small venues and is light and compact enough to afford easy portability. Its overdrive tone is easily controlled and very smooth making it a near perfect amp for rock and electric blues. In 1968, 1970, and then again in 1972, Fender altered the circuit slightly which changed the tone of amp - not for the better. However, like most Fender's, the post-1967 amps can be readily modified back to the original blackface circuit.
