They have tried it before and for that kind of money........
Good lord that sounds good!
Yes 899 is steep considering for an extra 200 you can get the real thing!
Made in China.
Cork sniffer! Cork sniffer !
Fender has never done anything like this. And yes, that takes the CyberTwin into account. Completely different amps.
BTW, the new amps have been getting rave reviews by most people who have tried them in person, the negative comments are mostly from people who have never even been in the same room with one.
Agreed, Ill stick with high maintenance tube amps!
But sometimes one just knows what they like and dont like...its simple for some. Im one of them. I like tubes. If I can get a better tone with SS well something to think about but similar, Nope!
I’ve got both digital and tube amps, right now my Kemper is feeding a pair of 1960s via a QSC power amp. It’s a religious experience.
Yeah,...that doesn’t sound anything like a Deluxe Reverb to me!
It sure does look like one though,...maybe that’s what they’re counting on?
I’m sure it’ll work for some folks, not me though. I may be a dinosaur but I prefer my amps with glass in em’!
Does it have that authentic farty bass tone?
I dunno, that sounded awfully nice. But it was John playing it, he could play a 10 watt Kustom practice amp and make it sound nice (or better than it's does!).
So are blackface Deluxes known for "farty" bass? I though that was the tweeds? I my opinion, looks like Fender took a lesson from Roland (Blues Cube) and decided it was a good way to go. But, like the Blues Cube, it is way too expensive for my talents to justify. $400-500 would be ok (heck, $200-250 would be awesome!), I just don't get the &900-1000 price tag. As someone said here, $200 more and you've got an all tube version.
I agree, 300-400 should be the price range, especially for a 22W SS combo.
It does look and sound nice tho...
Sounds great and I’m glad that Fender went in this direction instead of a typical do-everything modeler. Excellent idea.
I’m sticking with my vintage BF Deluxe Reverb but I hope that these sell well and that people love them.
Every Deluxe reverb i've had (three) got pretty farty when you cranked it. They all had stock speakers. I had a real '65, a reissue'65 and a '76.
"In a bold Fender first, the Tone Master Deluxe Reverb amplifier uses massive digital processing power to achieve a single remarkable sonic feat: faithfully modeling the circuitry and 22-watt power output of an original Deluxe tube amp. Using a high-performance 100-watt digital power amp to achieve the headroom and dynamic range of a real vintage Deluxe tube amp, paired with the pronounced sparkle and clarity of a single Jensen® N-12K neodymium speaker and a resonant pine cabinet, the result is tubeless Deluxe Reverb tone, volume and dynamics virtually indistinguishable from the all-tube original. And with all these features, the Tone Master Deluxe Reverb is in fact about only half the weight of an all-tube Deluxe.
Front panel features give guitarists a playing experience identical to the tube version, including Fender’s world-standard reverb and tremolo effects. Additional rear-panel features deliver modern convenience and flexibility—including an output power selector for full power and five attenuated settings, balanced XLR line output with impulse response (IR) cabinet simulations, mute switch for silent stage or recording use, USB port for firmware upgrades, and more.

What I was going to say is:
Every attempt by Fender to switch musicians over to SS amps has been a failure.
Although, Fender has produced some pretty good sounding SS amps.
There have been at least 3 attempts to change over to solid state ending each time with the amp being discontinued.
Yes, the subsonic low frequency compression which sounds like a fart in a bathtub.
Mesa maintains the copy of the Fender preamp (and therefore muddy lows), and Marshall intentionally rolled off the low frequency to stop the fart sound (clean lows).
Didn't like the tone of either. Way too much treble. 68 custom Deluxe Reverb for me.
