NAD! - Deluxe Reverb RI

1

Greetings to all.

After a long quest, I finally decided to pick up a Deluxe Reverb RI. My primary amp has been a Twin Reverb for quite awhile, but I must admit that the Twin is serious overkill for most of my applications.

I think that the Deluxe is going to suit me perfectly. This amp sounds great. After lugging a Twin around for years, the lighter weight of the Deluxe is a gift from above. I am most impressed with this amp.

It was a great morning... A cup of coffee, my trusty Tennessee Rose and a new Fender amp.

Life is good.

Thats my main gigging amp, in fact its the only one I've got anymore. I love it.

Congratulations to you, Dylan, on finding an amp that works for you. It is a quest that many people pursue for a lifetime, but you have found it already.

Congrats, Dylan! I love my DRRI. I walked into a GC a few years ago and I heard these sweet sounds coming from across the store. It was a guy playing a 6120 through a DRRI and it was love at first hearing. I bought it that night and it has risen to the occasion no mater what I ask it to do.

That's a great amp Dylan, I used to own one. I've got a couple of years on you ;-) and it had just gotten too heavy for me to lug around. That Tennessee Rose of yours must sound awesome through it!

CONGRATS ! I bet the two sound great together !

Grew up playing a 65 Deluxe Reverb. Love this amp. Even though I now have my Holy Grail (Parkel 25L15 clone), I'd love to have a DR again... just cuz.

Good score, Dylan! I'm eyeing a Deluxe Reverb myself right now.

Congrats on your new amp , had one and i traded it for a super reverb that i realy like ,but i see another Deluxe reverb down the road some day ! Enjoy

11

Those are great amps.

12

Had one when I was gigging. I'd throw a pedal & my cords in the back of the amp. Guitar case in one hand, amp in the other. The way it should be!

13

nice amp !! congrats ,, i had a twin for a long time and more than once i had thoughts of leaving it behind instead of lugging that thing around

What's not to like about a Deluxe Reverb?

15

I am have DRRI that I am using now along with a Fender '65 Reverb unit. Nice amp congratulations. I am however thinking of a Peavey Delta Blues 1x15 to be kept at my place of work.

It seems that I'm far from alone in loving the Deluxe.

Thanks for the comments!

Congrats! I love my '65 DRRI. Great amps for Gretsch, Gibson and Fender guitars. Sometimes they can be a bit bright - there are forums which show you have to clip the bright cap, but I never got around to doing it. I had one of the earliest ones with the Eminence/Fender speaker (these were replaced by Jensen speakers in later models). Last year, I swapped out the speaker with an Eminence Cannabis Rex - GREAT improvement. Get used to the amp as is and if you're the noodling type, poke around the web for speaker upgrade recommendations.

The 65 Deluxe reissue is the only amp I found that sounds good with all types of guitars, Gretsch, Gibson,and Fender. Nice amp!

Strangely, I find myself in the converse situation... considering another amp because I drive home during each working day just to snatch a few stolen moments on my Delta Blues. If I had another amp I could justify these little excursions to myself with a more convincing delusionism! :P

Nice amp, Dylan. A true classic. :)

21

Congratulations....you've just acquired my DREAM AMP! I really, really want one of those.

22

I, too picked up a DRRI about 2 weeks ago. My back (and wife) had been telling me for quite awhile I should leave the AC30 at home and get a lighter gigging amp. I finally listened. Now I'm wondering why did I wait so long? I should have gotten one of these years ago.

23

I aquired my DRRI a couple of months ago and I am still impressed. I thought my Blues Deluxe was nice but the Deluxe puts it to shame!

24

I had one of the DRRI amps a few years ago when you could still buy them new for under $700.00. I traded my Peavey Delta Blues and some cash for it at Guitar Showcase in San Jose, CA.

After the honeymoon ended, I was sorry I had made the trade as I really liked the Peavey better although the DRRI was a great sounding amp.
