So yesterday I sold my 1966 deluxe reverb. I'm just selling lots of stuff as I have too much gear at the moment.
Before it goes I've plugged in some guitars and this thing just sounds awesome. Blackface amps really are my "go to" sound.
There's a low end presence to it that fills the room, an acoustic hollowness to the sound, really balanced mids, healthy amount of gain and the reverb decay that only an old tank can do.
I've owned several 60s blackface amps (vibrolux reverb, princeton, pro, deluxes, champs, etc.) they've all been great and easy to work on if something goes wrong. I just keep coming back to them.
I'm going to miss the deluxe reverb. I might be forced to buy an old princeton reverb down the line again.
