A Black Face Reverb Amp to Keep Up With The Marshalls

Texas Tone Heartbreak Deluxe

The Texas Tone® "Model C" tube guitar amplifier is the ideal amplifier for those want a black faced styel reverb amp that will keep up the the Marshall 50W heads.

The Fender® DSuper Reverb is a legendary amp, loved for it's tone. The Model C is an update for the rock guitarist who wants to take on the Marshall heads on an even keel.

After much study and circuit analysis, we've been able to open up the AB763 circuit bandwidth, cool down distortion in the front end, generate greater output stage dynamics to give an overall tighter feel, and clean up the reverb, all to make this an ideal rock platform. As always, steps are taken to reduce noise and hiss, and increase reliability.

At first look, cooling down distortion in the front end and generating greater output section dynamics may seem counter-intuitive. After all, Leo Fender went to great lengths to create more clean headroom, and his black-faced amps were the epitome of tube amp clean headroom- at least until his Music Man amps were released in the late 1970s. With the Model C, however, the cleaner front end and increased output section dynamic range presents more output harmonics and saturation, resulting rock drive that otherwise isn't available in a Blackface Reverb Amplifier.

The result is a 40W tube amp that can drive your 4x12 (or any other) cab with great rock tone. The output impedance is switchable between 4, and 8 Ohms, and can drive a variety of speakers up to a 4x12 stack. A 1x12 combo is the standard configuration.

The Model C includes the technical features listed below:

Texas Tone® amps are built with a discerning musician's care. Every component, every wire lead, every solder joint, is carefully selected, laid out, bent, and soldered to ensure long life, optimal tone, and low noise. To further reduce amp hum, I follow modern electrical engineering practice and use a modified single point grounding scheme.

The Texas Tone® Model C hand wired all tube guitar amplifier: $1,995.00.
