I love Deluxe Reverbs. There's a very special speaker I use on those and I'll not say what it is unless I do the rebuild and you've been sworn to secrecy. The best bet for a Deluxe is a silver face from 70-73/74. The price is always reasonable and in a couple of days with minimum parts I can have them sounding as good or better than any 64-66 you'll find. My own private reserve is a modified 72. I don't think I've ever played a gig and not been asked where I found it, what's in it, etc.. I usually tell the people, "in a music store, don't know - stock."
Better than my '66, Bob? I will attest to the speaker choice, without divulging any trade secrets. I will say it has changed my speaker paradigm for some other amps I own.Regards,Deryl Voutila
Anyone want a 65 Twin for $1500.. If this violates policy, move it to the Marketplace. It's not mine, just thought these guys would be a more target audience..LOL
Kemper,The thing about Twin Reverbs is that they are very common, can be found for $5-800, and unless you're a collector owning a 66' is not an advantage. I have a pair, 72' and 74' that have been converted to AB763 specs, fully recapped, tone stack tuned, Celestion speakers, and soon to have new grill cloth and black faceplate. I'll sell one of them as is for $1000 and guarantee it sounds 100 times better than the 66'. That's $200 less than the current circuit board re-issue Fender make today.
