1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb-Amp


A nice functional example of this most iconic yet practical of Fender’s blackface amps of the mid-to-late ’60s. This one has a changed mains transformer which saves you a fair amount of money yet has utterly no effect on the tone, not being in the signal chain per se. AB763 circuit per the tube chart, “PD” date code indicating April of 1966 as a manufacture date, original 1965-dated blue-label Oxford 12″ loudspeaker, 22 watts from a pair of 6V6s, tube rectifier, 2 channels with the second featuring Fender’s inimitable tube-driven tremolo and spring reverb. Other than the transformer, this one is pretty straight including its original tolex and grille cloth, “F”-badged speaker plug, and footswitch. Some honest road wear, but reasonably clean overall. Featured on countless classic records, one of the greatest small club and studio amps of all, handwired in Fullerton, California.
