Two of Fender’s popular reissue valve amplifiers – which one would you choose?
Life too short for long YouTube videos? See the ‘interesting bits and go-to sections timings’ below
Welcome to the show!
We recently did an episode comparing Fender’s highly successful ’65 Deluxe Reverb-Amp with the newer Tone Master Deluxe Reverb. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/eoKs-X7I6zs
That video spurred a whole load of comments asking us to compare other amps, but top of the list was the Deluxe Reverb Vs the Super Reverb reissues. We own both, so here goes!
In this video we discuss a bit of (very) loose history, then play them clean and cranked with classic single coils and humbuckers, before trying a handful of common or garden overdrive, distortion and fuzz pedals.
For everyone minded to comment on what we //didn’t// do, yes, we know we only used the high input of the vibrato channels. There are a whole other palette of sounds from the low inputs and the other channels, should you wish to experiment.
No P90s either. No idea how we omitted that – apologies to all you P90 people.
