I'm really digging these Blackface replicas by Achillies Amps. The AA964 Vibrolux Reverb is not that far removed from the Blackface Deluxe except for a couple of crucial details: 6L6's rather 6V6's, a slightly larger cabinet size and some other more technical stuff that Labros from Achillies and other amp gurus will be able to enlighten us on.
But details are not really my concern - tone is. And this amp sure packs a wallop in the tone department. It's all clean and smooth sailing up to around the '6' mark on the volume knob and then she begins to get angry - and loud. Just the way we like 'em, right?
You'll find superb spring reverb and vibrato/tremolo onboard and it's dead quiet; no doubt due to the component choice and meticulous PTP circuitry. Once again, Labros has done justice to the great old amps of yore, and then some. More to come, folks!
