Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue Modifications
Unleash the tone of your Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue with the modifications from Fromel Electronics!
The biggest complaint about the Reissue is that it sounds thin and harsh compared to a Vintage Deluxe Reverb. The goal with this kit was to make the '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue sound as close as possible to an actual Blackface Deluxe Reverb. The tonestack on both channels is upgraded with high quality WIMA, Mallory and Silver Mica Caps and modified values to faithfully recreate the tone of a Vintage Deluxe Reverb.
This kit takes the stock Deluxe from a thin sounding shadow of its famous predecessor to an amp that captures the sparkle, warmth and incredible dynamic tone of a Fender Blackface amp. Does your Vibrato tick? We've got the cure! The kit improves the signal path of the amp, upgrades the tone caps and includes a few key tweaks to the circuit that truly make this amp great for gigging or studio use. Don't settle for a mediocre reissue when you can tap into vintage Fender mojo with a few Fromel mods!
Additionally, the recap kit upgrades every cap in the circuit with high quality ARS and Nichicon electrolytic caps. All the capacitors in this kit were specially chosen for great tone, reliability, and accurate fit in your Deluxe Reverb.
Please Note: The Supreme Mod kit includes both the "Complete Mod Kit" and "Recap Kit" that we offer and is the ultimate tonal upgrade for your own amplifier!
Included in the kit are all the components necessary to to get your amp in top shape and the detailed instructions to make the changes easy. If you have a basic understanding of electronics and soldering skills you can do these mods in a couple of hours.
