and my lord... what a beautiful sound! I usually use this blackline Fender for playing at home. It was inherited from my father and I don't want anything to happen to it.

Then I bought this pedaltrain mini for no reason other than it was on clearance. I strapped a couple pedals to it including this BB Preamp and holy wow is it an amazing sound. I now want this to replace my head and 4x12 rigs for gigging. I'm just worried that getting to rehearsal/gig volume, the Deluxe would get too dirty.

It is going to rehearsal with me next week to see if it can keep up. I'm so excited that I had to share.

Try an ancient MXR Micro Amp in front of an ancient Blue MXR 6 Band Graphic EQ .... I know what you're thinking right ? Noise. The MXR Miro Amp cancells the noise from the 6 Band . Try it. I have a 1970 Deluxe Reverb. You can also add round bottom end to the speaker with the 6 band EQ getting rid of any fllub.
Thats what I also use in front of my Marshall Amps that are non master volume.

It already is. Less is more i guess. Here is the simple pedalboard I made with my extra pedals laying around. Also attached a pic of my pretty amp. Finally the monstrosity of a pedalboard I use with the gig rigs. I hope this little rig works. It will be so much nicer. Our drummer is LOUD btw.

I had a '69 Deluxe (originally my Dad's)... I used it on the road from 1993-1998, then in a local band from 1998-2004 until I traded it off. GREAT gig amp! I never had it past 3 on the volume... All my grit came from multi-fx pedals, which the Deluxe handled better than any other amp I've played.

Yeah, that's a great amp.... Don't trade it off like I did mine!

Trying again. And tele_jas... my amp will never go anywhere except to my daughter who plays too.

I wish my Dad had a Deluxe Reverb from the sixties lying around for me to use...

For what it is worth, I'd rather still have my dad but I know what you are saying. I'm lucky he held on to this. He had plenty of other gear that is floating around with others. Permanent loan type stuff. I wish I knew what, where, and with whom.
