26 Journeyman 6 months ago My silverface Deluxe Reverb always seems to do what it needs to do, regardless of the type of gig. I agree with Windsor Dave, a silverface DR is a great investment. Mine was made in 1974 and I paid $1400 Canadian a few years back. They can be modded easily because they don't have printed circuit boards and there is so much information around on various mods and tweaks that as great sounding amps, they can easily be made even better. Modern speakers are so efficient that I can't imagine volume being a problem.Now that I have found a great amp tech, I'm going to try using only the DR for all my gigs; see how is works out. The plywood cabinet with the MDF baffle and back panels can be a little heavy, so just today I ordered a pine cabinet with plywood baffle. The builder said that he can build it light. The weight will also come down another 3 lbs. when I change the Weber 12F150 to a DT12. The hope is for a 35 lb. DR. As for sound, we will put a variable negative feedback control in it, put the reverb in both channels, and darken up channel one; maybe that will be the 'jazz channel'. These are all easy and reversable mods. The best deals on 70s Deluxe Reverbs are the later 1979-80 ones with the pull boost. People hate that feature but when not engaged, the amp is about the same as any other silverface DR. I had one in the past and it sounded fantastic, as long as I didn't use the pull boost. They tend to sell for less. Happy amp hunting.
