We present an original 1967 Fender Deluxe Reverb amplifier blackface. Made in Fullerton, California.
This Fender Deluxe Reverb is a one-owner example with a very original circuit that has been freshly serviced. Stocked with fresh 6V6 power tubes and an assortment of new and vintage preamp tubes.
This Deluxe delivers the shimmering, balanced clean tone that has made these amps a mainstay in studios and on stages for decades. The amp has a clear and dynamic sound, delivering sparkling cleans that are a great effects pedal platform. Cascading into rich, lightly compressed crunch as you push the volume to 10. The Reverb is very lush with a long decay
The circuit is very original. A new transformer is added (so it can run 230volt) But the original Schumacher transformer is included. Few cabs and resistance and a pot has been changed so it can run perfectly .
The preamp is loaded with the full compliment of the original blue Ajax molded capacitors, a key ingredient in the dynamic, musical tone of Fender’s Blackface amps. It has been professionally recapped with Sprague Atoms, and the smaller bypass caps and bias cap have been replaced to ensure optimal operation. The CTS pots date back to the 26th week of ’66 and the tube chart is intact with an “QD” date code which translates to April of 1967. The Oxford 12K5-6 speaker is original as well, dating to the 32nd week of ’66.
Cosmetically, the amp is very clean, with stock smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth. The tolex is remarkably clean, with the only wear of note on the bottom front edge of the enclosure. All of the original hardware is present including the chassis straps, handle caps, sphinx glides (feet), corners, and raised Fender logo on the baffle. The original faceplate also shows sparingly little wear with bold graphics and stock witch hat knobs
This is a very original and well kept example of one of Fender’s most famous blackface amps, purchased from the original owner.
The original tube chart is present as well and very clean with crisp corners and hand inked serial number.Call or e-mail for more details
