The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender's late-'60s "silverface" amps.
In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the "custom" channel has a modified Bassman tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals.
1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was brand new.
With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim, the Deluxe Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the ideal recording and performing amp.
I use this before buying a amp always-check all four transformers-will tell you if there has been problems along the way. On the bottom lower corner of the grill cloth was/is a 1×2 inch “JBL” plastic logo that Fender attached.
By 1968 deluxes usually left with CTS/EMINANCE speakers (Jensen had closed down) Once in awhile you can see the EIA code, CTS-starts with a #137-sometimes these are under the doughnut fender speaker label.
Probably no other amps influences are as widespread.I decided to take her temperature so I got out my trusty probe. After many many close up pictures it was time to get it on. Small, light and moderately powered, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects.For countless guitarists ever since, the Deluxe Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.This directory contains USENET articles Mic has saved about guitars, equipment, pickup, techniques, players, and so on.
