I picked up a Deluxe Reverb head a few months ago and due to wanting to switch things up and one amp being in the shop I have been using it for the last month or so with a 2x12 cab with chinese V30s. I've found the amp really sounds great with the volume above 5-6 or so.... lower than that and it is kind of lifeless. Maybe it's my ears? But dealing with sound guys who basically want you at now volume has been a pain. Then again I guess any non-master volume amp would sound pretty lifeless when it's only around 2-3?
