Dating silverface deluxe reverb

Rated 3.97/5 based on 945 customer reviews

The only indication of power is the “300 watts” label on the back.I've wanted a silverface Twin or Pro Reverb since I was a teen.There is not a huge amount of gain in the preamp stages of a Twin Reverb, at least not enough to achieve significant overdrive. One explanation might be to allow the amp’s preamp section to be overdriven by an external gain-boosting device, such as the Electro-Harmonix LPB-1 or the Dallas Rangemaster, both popular in the late ’60s and early ’70s.

The tube’s output connects to a transformer, exactly as in a single-ended amp like a Champ.Fender switched back to the blackface era cosmetics some time in 1980.Twin Reverbs produced between late 19 have a black control panel and silver sparkle grille cloth.For whatever reason, the engineers at Fender added seven additional components to the output stage, effectively turning it into a semi-cathode-biased output.While these amps were supposedly rated at 100 watts, they are nowhere near as potent as their predecessors.
