The voicing is different. A Blackfaced fender sounds different from a tweed fender. The Blues Deluxe sounds more like a 57 twin or a 57 deluxe than a blackface. The Deluxe Reverb is also a professional grade amp, while the Blues Deluxe is a budget amp.

The Blues Deluxe is also 40 watts, while the Deluxe Reverb is a 22 watter.

The Deluxe Reverb probably has better cleans, while the Blues Deluxe probably has better gain.

This sounds like blind speculation. Go crank them both and see which one fits you better.

ok, well i'm looking at those two for possible new amp chooses and i'm leaning towards to the blues deluxe, even though i have not played either yet...i want it mainly for jazz and i have read by many the blues deluxe also has good jazz sounds but ive heard good jazz played through a deluxe reverb so i'm kinda torn. also the blues deluxe is cheaper.

Well, don't make up your mind until you've played them and several others.

If you want a budget amp with jangly cleans, try a Palomino.

If you want a professional grade amp that will make you cream every time you turn it on, try a Super Reverb. Wes Montgomery used one.

Also look into a GA-20, if you can find one.

+1 for SR's!
The reissues are kind of "blah" compared to an original, but they are still pretty good amps.
Call me Wes.

I cream every time I play my strat through my Super Reverb.

Btw, Black Keys ftw!

They are voiced differently. Plus the DRRI has 4 more tubes, including a rectifier. Have you tried them out yet?

plus the obvious differences of tube driven reverb/vibrato on the DRRI, 6V6 powertube, each channel has its own EQ. (Its two channels are more like two different amps in that there not footswitchable and can be used both at once.)

Blargh, I'm googley again?

Anyway...

A Super Reverb runs about 1300 bucks, new. GA-20's are rare. In fact, I don't thing Gibson makes them anymore. You can find them online, and I think they run under 1000 bucks.

I have read reviews that the Blues Custom, running in 15 watt mode, sounds VERY similar to a GA20. I've not played a GA-20 irl (I've seen one, once, but someone had just bought it.), but I have played the Blues Custom extensively, and it is a great amp in its own right.

A good suggestion on the Palo. With it EQ'd right, I get some real nice jazz tones out of my V16. I actually use it for a school jazz band, and often get compliments on my tone.

no i havent tried them yet. thats why i asked, i was pretty clueless on difference haha. but i want to try the deluxe reverb and a super reverb. i just don't want to break the bank with a new amp if i can get the same sounds out of a cheaper one. ah, so many to choose from!
