Fender Deluxe Reverb Vintage AB763 Re Issue Blackface Valve Kit with GZ34 Rectifier
Nothing makes your Fender Deluxe Reverb Re Issue sound like new than a complete new set of valve/tubes for your amp. Here is a valve kit that will improve on an already superb amp and get that rich lush reverb and tone using valves that are as Fender specified all the way back in 1963.
EH has introduced the 7025EH recently and this allows us to assemble this kit. we have fitted it to several amps and the customers just love the tones
This kit is specially chosen using the exact original valve types that were used in the original Blackface amps. This kit has been assembled following feedback from customers on how impressed they are with the rich warm tone of their amp.
The kit is designed for the Fender Deluxe Reverb 65 blackface and re-issue.
The amps were designed for low gain low noise types. The 7025 was specified .
Here is the valve sticker in AB763 amps showing the valves used
We have carefully selected the following valves for this kit. If you look at the back of the amp V1 is on your left & V9 at the right of the amp. Here are the recommended positions for the valves in this kit. All will be labelled when you receive the kit so you know which on his which.
Eh 7025 for the V1 and V2 position as it has such low microphonics, low noise and a rich tone
One Tung Sol 12AT7W for the reverb drive circuit and again with low microphonics maintains a rich warm reverb sound. The W denotes ruggedised. This is the pre-amp valve that has the most load on it due to driving the reverb tank and the 12AT7W handles this with no issues.
One Tung Sol 12AT7W for the phase splitter and this is a matched / balanced
Eh 7025 which mixes the two channel and also acts as the reverb receive amp (
Two Electro-Harmonix 6V6GT matched output valves.
A quality robust JJ Gz34 rectifier which is proven to take punishment in the demanding application in a Deluxe Reverb
The matched 6V6GT valves come with a certificate showing the results of matching for your valves. We do the matching /balancing on our vintage restored testers the way it was done back in the sixties. The valves are tested at real amp voltages.
So if you want to replicate the true tone of your lovely Deluxe Reverb then use the exactly right tyts of valves in the original design !
We can supply this kit with a 5U4GB rectifier. The 5U4GB was used in the Silverface versions of this amp. The valve line-up is otherwise identical
