In Stock!

'65 Deluxe Reverb

The 22-watt '65 Deluxe Reverb just bleeds tube tone, thanks to its four 12AX7s, two 12AT7s, two 6V6s, and a 5AR4 rectifier tube - not to mention that both the reverb and vibrato are tube driven. A single 12" speaker puts the finishing touches on the fat sounds conjured by this reissued classic. The '65 Deluxe Reverb is the perfect amp for anyone who craves pure Fender tone but doesn't need a ton of wattage. Black vinyl and silver grille cloth round out the vintage look of the beautiful '65 Deluxe Reverb.

A Dream that took 65 Years

Back in 1965 I had a friend who had a 65 Deluxe Reverb. All I could do was dream about owning one. Now I myself being 65, I own one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW! Iam still Blown Away, sounds just as great as this amps did back then. I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks Sam for your help.

Sweet Cleans with Reverb

Own an Orange OR50 and needed an amp for cleans, boy this was it!!! I'm playing stereo with the OR50 and the Deluxe and couldn't be happier. Deluxe is super clean tone, played 65' Twin Reverb, VOX AC30, and 65' Princeton reverb before deciding that the Deluxe was what the Dr ordered. Everyone should have this amp in the arsenal.

Great Tone and Very Versatile

I bought this amp and in short order changed out the stock speaker ceramic speaker for an Alnico Weber Vintage 12F-150 (with light dope). The change in tone (for the better) was more than I could have ever expected. Also had one of the tube amp gurus here in Houston replace some bad tubes with some NOS, reset bias, and upgrade some caps and resistors. We were all amazed at the tone this little jewel produces. The original speaker is a little brittle, harsh and too barky for most purist taste. The Weber has a smoother, creamier crunch to it and beautiful clean tones. I run my Les Paul through Normal channel 2 using a Keely mod TS-9 Tube Screamer, and Keely Compression pedal. Single coil Tele's and Strat's go straight into Vibrato channel one with just a little reverb and vibrato for a nice "John Fogerty" tone. Very versatile amp. Will do anything except syntho-metal. But who listens to that anyway? I have two other completely hand wired point to point tube amps but just keep coming back to this one. It just sounds better.

Great tone

Fender is doing a nice job with overall quality in my experience. This amp is no exception. I just can't dial in a bad tone. I'm using it for clean tones only, so can't speak to break-up/distortion goods or bads. But in terms of clean chiming ringing pure sound, I don't know how this could really be improved. Delighted!

The only amp you'll need

What do you want in an amp? A Clean Sparkle channel - Well its a fender so thats almost an automatic- This amp puts out the signature clean that made Fender so famous. The tube reverb is superb. There is a reason this Blackface is the sound that digital emulators try to reproduce. Outstanding Tube distortion - @22 watts The amp starts to break up at about 5. Push the volume and you get the unmistakable overdrive crunch only a tube amp can give you. The amp is very very responsive to your guitars volume control. Turn the amp up to 7 crank your guitar and and feel the fun! Turn your guitar down and the amp cleans up really nice! Do you gig? If you do you know how much it sucks to lug around a heavy amp but smaller lighter amps just dont have the bass or fullness that you need. PROBLEM SOLVED this amp is 40ish lbs which makes it easy to take with you and the 12" Jensen Ceramic puts out a really BIG full sound. Work with pedals? HELL YEAH. The key to a great pedal sound is a great clean amp. Again this is a Fender and with the 12" speaker response you'll be very happy Volume, If you rock out with a heavy metal band and need stack behind you to be able to hear over the rest of the band, then this is not the amp for you. It gets plenty loud for just about any other type of venue. If the room is too big for this amp, then it should be mic'd anyway and sent of the PA. Over all I have been playing for 35 years. 20 of those years as a professional. I have owned Ampeg, Traynor, Crate, Peavy, Fender Super Reverb, Vox. This 65 Deluxe is without a doubt get the highest rating of any amp I have ever owned. BUY IT! For the guy that had problems with the tubes. Bring it back bro. Try another one. these things happen sometimes. I promise you'll love it!!!

Charm, tone, vibe, and feel are all words that you'll hear when describing a '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb. Nothing can really touch this classic sound - and that's why owning one is a necessity for any guitar player who's looking to add to his amp collection.
