Overview

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.

I bought this amp used for 400 dollars at a local music store. I use a Mexican Stratocaster and play mainly classic rock and blues. This amp has woken up my mediocre guitar and give ANYBODY a run for their money. I usually play around 2-3 and this amp can reach the back of any small to medium venue, unmic'ed. The once the tubes warm up, the tone flows out of the amplifier and puddles on the ground. It has an amazing spank when the treble is up, and a dark, overtone-infested moan when you crank the bass. The reverb cannot be duplicated and can go from a shallow shimmer, to a full blown Pink Floyd-played at the end of a tunnel sound. I personally set the vibrato shallow and at medium speed to give a thrashy-simmer to my tone. I have been told by a touring guitarist at my church that my set up- Stratocater- EH BigMuff-FuzzFace-Dunlop Wah- 65'reissue is the best sound he has ever heard live. I suggest any musician buy this amp not only for it's nastolgic presence, but for it's sweet voice. Remember to buy a bucket to help carry off all the tone you'll be flooded with .

I am really disappointed with Fender. GC had to send me 4 different amps before one worked. I have only had number 4 for a few weeks so I dont know how long it will last. Amps one and three had reverb issues with loud hum and feedback;which resulted in number one crashing . Number two lasted 3 weeks and then the vibrato channel quit working. GC has been working patiently to resolve this issue.When the amp works it sounds great.

    This amp is everything I heard it was, amazing cleans and works great with pedals. However, getting it was a hassle and repeated missinformation about where it was coming from and when it would arrive at my local GC.

      I wanted a clean sounding amp. This and the Twin were both in the running but I chose this one as it is a bit more portable.

        Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Deluxe Reverb Guitar Combo Amp:

        I was so blown away with the 600 "Champ" amp I purchased a couple months ago, I decided to try the "Deluxe Reverb" @ Guitar Center. Picked out a nice standard Tele, turned the volume up to 3, gradually turned the bass & treble up about half way, the 'verb up to 2 1/2- perfect! It's going to be just right for most of the gigs I do, I have a Blues Deluxe for bigger venues. Sure, you can mod the hell out of these amps, but that Fender Sparkle is there in Spades, I've been playing thru them for over 50 years in niteclubs, bars, recording studios, etc. The really cool thing is the Deluxe Reverb sounds just like my Super Reverb in a slightly smaller package- In other words, if you can't dig this amp, you got a hole in your soul!

        Most of the tone for all equipment comes from the player. Given that this amp sounds Great. I couldn't be more pleased.

          Sounds great with both my strat and les paul. Didn't have to fiddle around long to get the sound I wanted. I little bit brittle and harsh if you're not careful with the treble knob. Remember to use the tone knob on your guitars! Didn't sound great with my higher gain plexitone pedal but worked well with the fulltone ocd.

          This fender deluxe reverb sounds great with or without pedals. It's loud for a 22 watt tube amp. Easy to carry and simple to use. It has replaced a marshall JVM205C.
          Only thing that can be improved, is the footswitch. Its cheap looking and cheesy.

            Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Deluxe Reverb Guitar Combo Amp:

            I purchased this amp new and have had it for about 2 years. I love it. The Fender black-face amps have defined a sound. You either want that sound or you don't. Those that do not, will not like the amp. It has a natural, bell-like chime and a beautiful clean tone—particularly with single coil pick-ups. If you push the volume, it produces the best, natural, tube-over-driven sound I've heard. I find this amp, when pushed to 5-6, sounds better than any overdrive-pedal I've owned. Will it sound like a Marshall stack with humbuckers? No. Want a BB King, Freddie King, SRV sound? Want a great clean, jazz tone? Pick a black-face that fits your playing style.
            How do you choose? Simple. All the black-face amps have similar sonic signatures. The primary differences are in power and speaker configuration. They range from the low-power, 10 inch Princeton all the way through a 4- 10 inch Super Reverb, the 2- 12 inch Twin…and many more in between. The more power, and speakers, the more clean headroom. The smaller the amp, the easier it will be to get the overdriven tube sound without pedals. The Deluxe Reverb is a perfect amp for practice, gigs in smaller venues [or larger with good PA systems], or larger venues when desiring that pushed overdrive sound. Too powerful for a "bedroom" playing? Depends on your guitar and environment. The amp doesn't begin to sound full until 2+. Below that, it will sound very thin. At 3, the entire house will hear the amp clearly. With humbuckers, 3 will be very loud for a house with family or apartment. You will hear your neighbors or family pounding on the walls.

            Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Deluxe Reverb Guitar Combo Amp:

            These are actually pretty nice sounding amps right out of the box,but with just a few minor mods this thing becomes a keeper.I replaced the stock speaker in mine with a 12" Weber Silver Bell 70w, and re-tubed it with a pair of JJ's ,and replaced the out-put transformer with a Mercury Fat Stack..I play a Gibson 335s with Seymore Ducan Pearly Gates pick ups and a Frankin' Strat I built with Texas Special single coils,run em' thru a Tube screamer and a carbon copy delay...pretty simple rig...it's made my playing better,and like I said earlier it's something I'll keep and hand down to my grand children when I'm gone...I give it 4 stars because Fender didn't go the extra step and include the mods I mentioned

            Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Deluxe Reverb Guitar Combo Amp:

            Sounds sweet right out of the box. I play blues and rock, and the Deluxe Reverb has lived up to everything I have heard about it. It has a simple control layout, great range, and don't fret about the missing middle control because the mids are there. I love the response of the Jensen speaker and, unless your playing huge club, its 22 watts are plenty loud enough for most any venue.

            Fender Deluxe Reverb 65 reissue

            By WILLIAM GRINER

            from Milledgeville, GA

            Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Deluxe Reverb Guitar Combo Amp:

            I gigged with a Fender Deluxe Reverb that was a 65 original back in my high school days. One fantastic sounding amp! I am in my middle 60's, in age, and getting back to playing a little. I ordered this 65 reissue in hopes it would be close to the sound of my original 65. I am very happy I ordered. This is as close as it gets, if not the same. For an all round amp, gigging and practice, it rises above. You will have to have one to understand my thrill of getting back to this amp. I have tried a bunch.
