Double Decade Deluxe

The Double Decade Deluxe combines the classic 5E3 Tweed Deluxe and AB763 Black Panel Deluxe Reverb circuits and takes them to the next level. With this period correct handwired amplifier you can quietly select between 1950's tweed grit and 1960's Black Panel spaciousness with a custom footswitch.  The 5E3000 mode cascades an additional triode into the 5E3 circuit for a uniquely voiced high gain lead tone.  The 1957 channel can be routed into the 1966 channel through a level control to take advantage of the AB763's more hi-fi long tail phase inverter, negative feedback and reverb. This amp literally is two amps in one. The Double Decade Deluxe is so versatile you could spend weeks dialing in and discovering new tones.  However the best quality of the amp is that throughout the range of it's settings it retains the classic characteristic tone of it's roots.  It sounds great at almost any setting.

The amp features two different speakers.  A 12" AlNico and a 10" ceramic from Ted Weber Speakers.  The design uses a special three way switch on the amplifier so you can select between one, the other, or both speakers.  This is a great feature in the recording studio.
