Fender unveiled its Tweed series amps to great success and acclaim in 1993. The concept: What if a great old, collectable, 1950’s Deluxe or Bassman was customized with channel switching and reverb?
Behold the Reissue Blues Deluxe, a vintage-style tube amp with boutique tone at a great price that many a pro rock, country and blues player has used to superb effect. The Reissue Blues Deluxe sends 40 watts of juice into a single, 12″, Special Design Eminence speaker, fueled by two 6L6 output tubes and three 12AX7 preamp tubes.
Its two channels – normal (with bright switch) and drive – are voiced for classic blues, country and rock. Other features include Fender spring reverb, an effects loop and two-button channel footswitch. The great look includes tweed covering, chicken head pointer knobs and a chrome control panel.
