Deluxe Power and Performance

From Memphis, Tennessee, to Austin, Texas, London to Los Angeles and just about everywhere else, players who prize 1950s-era Deluxe amps for their unmistakably warm and rich medium-powered tube tone will love pairing the '57 Deluxe Head with their favorite speaker enclosures. As in decades past, there's nothing like the overdriven tone of a cranked-up Deluxe for a smoking-hot live set—lower volumes deliver harmonically rich clean tones perfect for rock, blues, rockabilly and country, while higher volumes with that thick, wild distortion are just plain fun. And with all that natural compression, it's also a great recording amp.
