...Another major issue - the DRRI will never sound close to a Vibrolux Reverb - the VR has lower voltages, less power, more mids and is a "different" Fender amp. In fact, the DRRI doesn't sound like a BF or SF Deluxe. It's a case of you can't get there from here. Some rave about them, but players who are really dialed-in as far as specific amp tones realize the reissues (although not BAD amps) do not sound like the originals...


Actually, the DRRI (65 Fender Deluxe Reverb) has 394v at plates compared to 415v of the BF Deluxe Reverb AB763 and 410v of the BF Vibrolux Reverb AA964. With my company, Tube-Tone Amplifiers, I recently rebuilt a DRRI into a BF AB763 circuit for a customer. He said the result was much fuller sound with much quieter idle noise. Here was a shot of before and after.




WOW! That rebuild makes the insides look a lot "cleaner" than the "before" shots - if that makes sense?
