A rebirth of the ultimate club amp.

The Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Combo Amp has a sound big enough to cut through the muddiest mix, but it's small enough to turn up make the most of natural tube distortion in small clubs. This makes it the perfect studio amp, as well. It's a resurrection of a classic vintage tone monster, and its current iteration is used by many big-name bands, such as Flogging Molly, O.A.R. and Maroon 5. Crank up this faithful, U.S.-made reissue for your daily requirement of fat Fender tone. Delivers 22W through a 12" speaker. Features two channels (normal, vibrato), all-tube circuitry, tube vibrato, tube spring reverb, Blackface cosmetics and two-button footswitch to control the reverb and vibrato effects.

Designed to sound as close to the original as possible, the ‘65 Reissues are assembled in Corona, California and feature Jensen speakers (One C12K for the Deluxe and two C12Ks for the Twin, four P10Rs for the Super and one C10R for the Princeton), Schumacher transformers, traditional tremolo and tube-driven reverb to create that classic, "Blackface" sound so many players desire. They do have PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards), as opposed to the original's "hand-wired" circuitry, but the components (capacitors and resistors) are the same values as amps from that period. They also have hand-wired tube sockets and other parts for added strength.

Tonal Characteristics: Bright, scooped midrange that is known as the "Blackface" sound, pronounced "Wine Glass" highs from the Jensen speakers and a slightly more polite power amp for crystal cleans that can also be cranked for great overdriven tones.

Who's it for: Players that love the original versions but are priced out of owning vintage amps, blues players, country players, rock players, guitarists trying to get classic "Blackface" sounds (a la Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer), American-made amp enthusiasts, traditionalists, avid Fender collectors.

  • Can't get better than this!

    As reviewed by Nate on 2/24/2010

    This amp is truly amazing. I am the worship leader at my church and have been searching for a great amp, I tried egnater, vox, marshall, mesa boogies, but none of them gave me the clarity and response like this amp. It has great cleans but when I run my sparkle drive, ocd, and route 66 in front of it I get some really warm and beautiful overdrives. This amp has the best tone. It's no wonder why this amp is used by so many musicians live an in the studio. I highly recommend this amp for anyone looking for a great clean reliable amp to use pedals with. If this amp broke or was stolen, I would be back at guitar center to either fix it or buy a new one. I will never own another amp!

  • This is the perfect amp for the Clean sound -it is excellent.

    As reviewed by Barris Jahn on 4/25/2009

    You can mic this amp if you are playing live into the PA system, and it can handle a big show. You can also play strait out the amp for smaller gigs. If you play at home it is great. If you carry it to the studio it is not to heavy. It is Great to Record with. It is a clean and clear amp and sounds great with Fender Tele's and other Fender guitars. It also sounds great with Rickenbacker guitars. This is the perfect amp if you are wondering should I get this amp. Yes. If you want louder (Fender Twin). If you want dirty distortion get Marshall. Cheers, Barris Jahn

  • Good, but needs a few simple modifications.

    As reviewed by Mitchell on 1/26/2011

    I exchanged my Hot Rod Deville with a 4x10 cab for the DRRI. It was a good move. The vibrato channel is very bright even with my Les Paul with classic 57's so I took it to a local amp tech and he "unsoldered" the bright cap and re-biased the amp with JJ 6v6 tubes. This amp now sounds amazing! Plenty loud. The natural tube breakup (at around 6) sounds good but I think a pedal would be better. The cleans are phenomenal! If you play a Strat or a Tele with this amp it would be a match made in heaven. Caveat Emptor, be prepared to make some simple mods as it may be too bright in it's stock form.
