    Both different, both great amps, I vote for the Deluxe.
    I've owned some Pros, they sounded great, but I had to dime em to make em sing. The Deluxe amps, as most folks know, are pretty much the ultimate Fender tone.

    What's the avg weight for a Pro Reverb? Are they as heavy as a Twin?

    Assuming you mean the 2x12 combos from the 60's and 70's, I believe they both weigh in around 60 lbs, with the Pro weighing slightly less than the Twin due a slightly smaller output tranny and two less 6L6 power tubes. The other only thing I can think of that might cause the Pro to be heavier is if there's been a speaker swap at some point, as the magnets for EV and JBL speakers can get a little heavy. Hope that helps.

    Thanks, that does help. I mean, it doesn't really, because I just can't lug that much amp around anymore. But at least I know now :D
