I was in Guitar Center and decided to plug my strat into a Fender Deluxe Reverb tube amp. ohmy.gif Suddenly I hate my Line 6 Spider Jam! OH MY GOD!!! The sound out of that thing was ridiculous!!!! It was $1,000...and it stayed in the store. My wife would KILL me if I bought that thing! Man...I now see what all the "tube amp" hype is all about!


Easily solutiuon.

Buy it and sell your other amp. smile.gif You might not get what you paid for it but it will be at least money off the new one.
My wife hates me because I do that stuff all the time.

Get what you want. If ya dont youll always wonder what it will be like. smile.gif
And you only live once. I say go buy it. Matter a fact go buy 2 for stereo sound! smile.gif

I have a strat as well, and I'm buying a deluxe reverb soon smile.gif Not to rub it in your face or anything, but you played a great one. And to answer your question, yes, it actually does real well with any kind of pedal, fender amps in general do in my experience. I had a hot rod deluxe, and for a long time, I used metal muff with it as my main source of destruction, and it sounded great. I tried it on my dad's vibrolux reverb (a 2x12) and it sounded really good as well. You will not be disappointed.

Hello, my name is Ivan Milenkovic - I am a gearhead. ph34r.gif biggrin.gif

Here's my confession: At first my girl and I were having some arguments about me buying expensive gear. She just couldn't understand. But after a while she figured out that I'm an gear addict, so she left me alone. I leave her to do the shopping, and I go to music stores. Everyone has some things that makes them happy in life, so that's the whole point. If you feel like you should be a tube Fender amp, and you really know that this is the right thing to do, I don't think anybody can feel bad about it. Just sell the Spider, collect some money and go for it! smile.gif

ph34r.gif Nah...she knows me too well!


Does anyone know how this amp would sound with a Metal Muff plugged into it? Is it a very one dimensional clean tone amp only? Or would it sound good for metal too with a good distortion pedal?



The Deluxe Reverb amp is good for blues, but is not a high gain amp. Use an overdrive pedal rather than a distortion pedal so as to not color the tone of the amp. Check out the new Vox Satchurator, the BB Preamp, or the Radial Tonebone for a top-notch overdrive. Good luck with the wife versus gear thing. I've been there, it was really stinky.

Don't forget Ebay! I wanted a tube amp but was discouraged by the price, especially of the nice Fenders. I was considering a Blues Junior, but after doing some research, I found a Peavey Delta Blues on Ebay, 1 year old and only used a few times, for half price. 30 watts and a 15 inch speaker, I'm loving that sound.

Best part for me, it's Made in USA, Mississippi in fact, for sure the home of Delta Blues!

Look at Carvin. You can get a Vintage Bel Air for About $600 with shipping. They sound great. I just changed the tubes on mine, set the bias myself (it is easy). Fender is fine. But you just bet more for your money with a Carvin. But don't get the Vintage 16. It is more of a specialty amp, which is ok. But the Bel Air is what you want. You don't hear a lot of people say bad things about them. In fact, I never have.

edit: correction, they are $100 more.

https://www.carvinguitars.com/products/sing...?product=BELAIR

Still, way better way to go than a Fender at this price. Mine just sounds great. I often play just right into it, even though I have all kinds of effects, it sounds so good, even at very low volumes.


Wow, those Carvins seem really great!
Have you done any recordings with it?

Rule of thumb in my house.

#1 If I can get it in the house and get rid of the box without getting caught...then it's always been there.

#2 You can't go wrong with a black guitar. I've got 4 or 7 of them. She doesn't care.

Tube amp is a must for a gigging or a serious recording guitarist!
I can't remember the last time that I played a non-tube amp smile.gif and the last time I played a gig with a transistor amp was 5 years ago and I'm gigging constantly!

But!!! If you're only playing at home at low volumes and it's just a hobby for you, maybe you don't need an expensive tube amp!
It's your decision!

And concerning your wife - communication is the key wink.gif if you tell her how much it would mean to you to have that amp, I'm sure she would say it's ok!
