Last week I received my new amp from Clark Amplification.....it was one of Clark's new Blackface amplifier models. The model, a Rockford Reverb, is a "Fender Blackface" style amplifier similiar in layout to a Deluxe Reverb but with higher power output using 6L6 tubes. Out of the box the amplifier was well put together (the packaging job was first rate, large sturdy box, plenty of packing foam). The tolex, and controls (white barrel knobs, footswitch) were perfect. When I plugged it in I was equally impressed by the sound. The amplifier has a normal and vibrato channel with reverb like a Deluxe Reverb. It is a very quiet amp and has a Weber 12" speaker (C12NT). The sounds that come out of it can go from smooth and sweat to loud and sparkly. Although, I have never had the opportunity to play a Deluxe Reverb this amp sounds really good to me. The reverb is great too and is usable over the entire range of the control. It's smooth with no boinginess or ghost sounds. The Vibrato is something I have to work with and get used to since I have never used this type of effect. I haven't cracked up the volume yet but I think the higher output transformer will keep this amp from distorting at lower volumes. It should stay cleaner longer I guess. As I play it more I will give more information.
