    What other amps are out there that would be similar in tone to the deluxe reverb?

    Fargen Blackbird

    Allen Accomplice

    I have no direct experience with either although, as I understand it, both are similar to the Deluxe Reverb. A search here on these two should turn up plenty of information.

    Bruno CT22 would probably be the ultimate version of the Deluxe Reverb. I have an all original 1965 Deluxe Reverb. My CT45 is Tony's version of a Pro and it sounds like a great big Pro Reverb and more. I also have a 1965 Pro Reverb to compare. That's why I think the CT22 would sound like an awesome Deluxe. I had a Fargen that was alright but not a Bruno. Ask Tag in three days, his CT22 arrives.

    Definately a Bruno CT22. It's the ONE amp I'd replace my '65 DR with. :dude

    I had a Deluxe Reverb reissue that I recently sold to a forum member. It had a Hoffman AB763 board in it along with a Reverend Alltone 1250 speaker. That amp would hold its own against any DR type of amp including vintage ones. It was a hell of a lot of work to install the board...almost more than building a complete amp kit. They are hard to find...they pop up on eBay once in a while...so you would pretty much have to modify a stock DRRI.

    Another one to consider is the Allen Sweet Spot (or V-18 in kit form) It is based on a Princeton but with the trannies David supplies it is pretty much a single channel DR. Nice overdrive and a great tremolo. It is different than the Accomplice in that it HAS tremolo and HAS NOT master volume so it is more true to the original Fender design.
