Hi,

I just had a question about my Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue, I love my amp, I was playing the blues for quiet a while, and when I bought a new amp this was the thing for me, I haven't heard no beter cleans than on that baby, but then, a while ago I heard about these boss pedals which simulate the Fender Deluxe Reverb and Bassman and they got a lot of overdrive out of it.

Well, I want some of that nice overdrive too, but, I don't have any, I mainly use my MXR Distortion III for overdrive (just keeping the drive down).
Perhaps I don't crank it enough ? I use it on the Vibrato channel, in the '2' input and volume about 5 with my fender stratocaster with Seymour Duncans vintage staggered, perhaps the guitar is to clean?

Any help appreciated!

yeah you would need to turn it up super loud. and if you use the regular (non vibrato) channel, you will get a bit more gain, as its a simpler circuit.

just get a nice OD pedal for it.

Any overdrive pedal suggested to get a Buddy Guy/Eric Clapton/John Mayer 'esque solo overdrive ? You know, that gritty overdrive ?

tubescreamer would suffice. i use it and works great. mayer uses alot of different of pedals including the tubescreamer, marshall bluesbreaker, and zendrive.

I just bought a Deluxe reverb, why does everyone say it doens'nt have enough OD for blues, it has plenty for me, look at a Tubescreamer for a blues sim.

well single-coil pickups aren't really made for distortion and overdrive.
that's ur problem I guess...try to borrow a friends guitar with a humbucker.

5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.

Thanks, I heard about the tubescreamer and the bluesbreaker, is the bluesbreaker any good, seen the very low price ?

yes its a marshall amp, but its also a marshall OD pedal. and a pretty nice one in my opinion. one of the best for actually useing as a dirt box instead of a boost.

Turn the volume up to 5-6 and it will start to break up when you pick hard, and dime it to get more saturation.

The deluxe reverb really isn't that loud, just find a larger room and turn it to 10.

You mentioned using the "2" input. The second input on each channel has less gain.

I've been using a Boss GT6 into my Fender amp, but I'm looking for something more portable. I've heard good things about the tubescreamer, the mainstream pedal everyone knows, but I've also heard good things from some online friends about the Fulltone overdrive pedal.

+1 True, the second input on either channel will break up later in the dial. Get a decent overdrive. Make a list of what you have so far (and other so come) in the thread and a Maxon OD808 and see what you like best.
