I want to get a Fender, and listening to Derek Trucks' awesome tone, found out that he uses a Super Reverb.

This place sells the Reissue, but it's way too expensive for me. Is there an equivalent that's $2000 Australian or less on here, that most sounds like the Super Reverb, or if not, what is a less expensive model that would be similar?

65 Deluxe Reverb looks good, but apparently can't get overdriven/no separate channel for that, apart from cranking, but I guess I can just put pedals in front. Dunno if it's the same with the Super.

A super doesn't have a master volume, either.

The thing that makes the Super stand out so much from other Fenders IMO is the speaker config. 10 inch speakers fit best with that blackface sound IMO, because they make up for a lot of the midrange scoop that those amps have.

What should look for is a 2x10 or 4x10 amp that is vintage voiced and runs either 6v6's or 6L6s. I don't know the Aussie market that well, but an amp like that can get you similar tone, for all intents and purposes.

Holy **** amps are expensive there. I'm not sure about the currency exchange rate, but it might be worth having one shipped over there from stateside. You can pick 'em up here for around $1,500...

Getting a bit technical on me there, dude.

So I guess Trucks just cranks it to get his OD? Any examples of amps on that site with that config? Does 6v6/6L6 refer to the tubes?

Yeah, and that's one of the cheaper places. The shipping would be crazy on an amp from the US. I do see some decent used amps on eBay quite often, so I'd be looking to pick up a used one there once I know what to get.

This will not get you spot on Super Reverb tone, but what it can do is get some really awesome blues tones, similar to Derek Trucks in some respects.

You're also going to want to look for some used amps.

Look for an Australian based amp maker (of which there are one or two, I believe) and see if they make anything similar to a Super Reverb.

Sound anything like the VJ, because I don't like the tone.

Can you convince me anymore? Only found http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HY22lRfV1A as a vid, but kind of impressive for the price. How would a Les Paul sound through her?

Gooley, would you mind doing some Truckesque sliding with the Blues Custom, and if you have one now, a Les Paul?

I don't have a les paul, and I can't even get close to Derek Trucks as far as how I play. My slide sound is different.

However, I can try to get a Derek Trucks type sound. Or more conducive to me, a Warren Haynes type sound.

Only problem is that my amp is at my College right now, and I probably won't have it home until friday.

Haynes is right up there with Trucks. That's cool if you get a chance. Thanks.

Yeah, like I said, earliest I'd be able to do it is Friday or Saturday, with some luck. Unfortunately, for your purposes, most of my clips are a mixture of more than one amp.

Ok, I found two of the clips I did when I got it. They're not slide, but they're blues. They might help a little bit.

If you can't get overdrive out of a BF Deluxe Reverb, forget about getting overdrive out of a BF Super Reverb.

And what's the cheaper combo equivalent of Haynes' Soldano through a Marshall cab?
