    "Design is loosely based on the mid 60's Fender Super Reverb™ but without a normal channel or a vibrato function. Design is enhanced with 3-knob reverb control, master volume control, "RAW" control, front panel power switches, impedence switch, and rear panel bias adjustment jacks."

    Great amp. I've had one for sale in the Emporium for about a week...

    You probably can really do much better than this for the money but you have to check and make sure he is making them without a long wait time.

    Chicago Blues Box comes to mind for me...

    ...though I still think the original is perfect as it is;)

    If you don't mind me asking, what are you looking for in a super reverb that it doesn't already have? That will go a long way in determining a good response.

    Contact me if you're interested in a '65 "clone". My amp guy made one for me.
    I'm sure if you're interested he'd probably make one for you,but you'd have to discuss it with him. PM if you're interested. Here's the one he made for me.

    The Victoria Victorilux is described as being more that a blackface Deluxe but less than a Super.

    It's probably an option.

    I´m just interested in knowing where the SR design has been brought. And if such "evolution" interests me...pull the trigger.

    Thanks guys for all of your answers. I have a lot of research to do for what i see.

    This is basically a SR on "steroids". Head only. The circuit is basically the same with some new twists, like a depth control (Presence for lower freq's), Thrust which controls the signal to the power amp and shapes the gain structur ~ at lower settings you have twin-like headroom and tones, and at higher settings it opens up and gets overdriven sooner, and (gasp)
    very HI-FI sounding (*umble-ish).
    Very VERY loud. Awesome reverb.
    The clips on his site suck, but you can request a cd with more on it.
