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 flexibilityincluding 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.

The included 2-button footswitch allows remote channel selection and effects on/off.

Features
• 5-way attenuator dials back power to 0.2 watts
• Solid pinewood cabinet in black textured vinyl with a classic silver grille cloth
• 12" Jensen N12K neodymium speaker exhibits tight, round bass and a sparkling top end
• Balanced XLR out with output control, selectable cab IRs, and ground lift
• USB port allows for firmware upgrades
• Includes 2-button footswitch

Spoiler alert --the last traditional tube amp I've bought was in 1968 and I truly don’t have a lot of experience other than owning a few smaller modeling amps recently. I don't gig or lug it around much, but I just wanted great sound, great sound. I had rented a blues junior and a pro junior and really loved the blues junior BUT it just got SO loud so fast, and I found it hard to control volume and at lower volumes that are house friendly.... well, it just didn't do it for me-- cranked up it did but.... So, I really looked at the Tonemaster and decided to order one. L & M needed to bring it in from a different store, but that process wasn't that lengthy and was flawless. After owning it for only two months I can say that it still leaves me breathless. Using the attenuator means I can get the sound I want, clear or breaking up a bit at volumes that don't loosen the drywall screws. The sound is to my ear incredible at any volume level, and the reverb is everything that reviewers say. I fiddled hours with the smaller modeling amps I have and never truly got the sounds I wanted. This amp makes it simple since this IS the sound I want. Others may be able to tell the difference in sound between this and the tube model; but I sure can’t. I play mostly for my own enjoyment, occasional inflicting my meagre talents on others. I'll probably never take advantage of all the power but just using this truly makes me smile. A simple looper pedal works wonderfully and is probably all I'll ever add. I also didn’t want any maintenance issues (I know, who knows yet but they’re not tubes). It also doesn't hurt that it looks straight out of 50 years ago

I think Fender hit it out of the park with the tone master series. Keep your old rare tube amps at home...this was made to take on the road. Sounds great in general (not JUST for a modeling amp).

Picked this up used, to complement my other amps. A month or two later, it’s getting played the most.

Not the best DR I’ve ever heard, but with an AlNiCo speaker in it and the latest firmware, I prefer it over a standard DRRI. Hot tip: the AlNiCo driver increased the weight by less than half a pound- still very easy on the back.

An unexpected advantage of mixing a Jensen speaker with the Blonde version of the firmware, is having two different sounds to work with. The AlNiCo driver nudges it closer to vintage Blackface and Tweed territory, while the DI output sounds like a rocker’s modded Deluxe with a Celestion in it.

I struggled over the Features rating. A Deluxe Reverb with an attenuator and that never needs to be mic’d up, can cover a LOT of ground, so that’s a 5. It’s a surprisingly good pedal platform, so that’s another 5. Plug the DI into a powered speaker, and it’s louder, lighter, and the combination is still cheaper than a Twin Reverb. Is that a 4, or a 5? These days, a SS amp that only models one amp is a bit of an anachronism, so that’s a 3. Or is it another 5, because there’s no menu diving, and it only takes a couple of minutes to perform reversible mods in firmware?

I give up. You’ll have to decide for yourself.

The amplifier I previously owned actually caused me to spend more time sitting at my computer than actually playing. To my last day of ownership, I had still not found my "sound".
When I purchased Tone Master, I plugged it in, spent maybe 5-10 minutes turning a few knobs and presto, my sound was there!
I truly believe that the 99% identical sound to the tube amp will make this - and other amps that meet the same technology, the end of the inconvenience of the tube amps.

Tone Master Deluxe Reverb: Reverb Mod Firmware v1.1.35 on fender website. Modified reverb control for easier fine tuning at lower settings. No bright cap on vibrato channel for smoother treble response when using overdrive and distortion pedals at lower settings. Jensen N12K speaker line out IRs captured with Shure SM57 and Royer 121 microphones. You can revert back to original firmware via USB easily and quickly if you want. The new updates really make the amp sound smooth and the enhanced control on the reverb dial lets you accurately and easily get the reverb just right. Fender really did their homework here by listening to players and implementing changes that can be changed back if you like. I love the updates. Game changer.

This is an outstanding amp! I’ve owned and used many tube amps over the years, Fender Twins with JBL speakers in them(that weighed a ton but sounded great), Fender Bassman 10(75 pounds I believe but the sound it produced was worth it.. And I was younger), A Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue(used by just about every pro guitarist out there, except for me, the pro part anyway), Marshall, Vox, etc. So I’ve been going back and forth on these “emulation” amps. Being a bit of a tube snob I couldn’t see myself liking it. But boy was I wrong!! This TMDR is killer. The sound is there, the weight is not. The balanced XLR output with impulse response and the 6-way power attenuator( master volume) on the back of the amp is the most modern thing you will see on this amp. I AB’d both the DR and the TMDR and was shocked by how identical they sound. So if your on the fence about getting a Tone Master Deluxe Reverb, just go do it. You won’t regret it!! CHEERS all!!

This amp is more than I ever expected....It sounds exactly like a Deluxe Reverb, but has more features....you can carry it with 2 fingers....no tube worries....has a line out for recording....it has an output power setting that lets you get your favorite sound at any volume....the reverb is great....the vibrato is great..... it works great with pedals, but I'm using them less because the amp sounds so good on it's own....I have always been a tube amp guy, but they are collecting dust now....I never imagined I would get this warmth and tone from a solid state amp, and it has all that shimmering top end that you want from a Fender amp.....I'm not affiliated with L&M or Fender, I'm just writing this because I'm blown away with this amp....They could have called it "Tone Monster" !

takes pedals very well , but i don t really need any , now i see where delay pedals may have come from , reverb with tremolo almost is a delay pedal effect . This amp is a sweet musical instrument . I like it as is or with a drive pedal . To me its actually better than original tube versions with the added modern features , and soundwise , im surprised how good it is , sold my fudge brownie deluxe reverb , hot rod deville, marshall dsl40c . Keep t my katana 100v2 , the fender sounds like a fender , the Katana has its own sound ....both good sounds ,and side by side with my hot rod deluxe4 , i like the tone master more ...hmmm, i seem to be playing the deluxe tone master daily .

I mostly use it as a home practice amp and the tone at lower volume is awesome.
Since I’ve owned it I hardly ever use any pedals anymore just because it sounds so amazing clean. Not having to mess with tubes and fact that I can lift the amp off the ground with one finger make it that much better. I’ve been playing for over 30 years and this has been my favourite amp by far.

Best digital amp ever. Has all the features you would want in a Fender Deluxe Reverb medium power amp. Great recording features with five attenuated power settings, balanced XLR line output with impulse response (IR) cabinet simulations, mute switch for silent stage or recording use, USB port for firmware upgrades. Plays like a real Fender Deluxe Reverb. Looks like a real Fender Deluxe Reverb. Is half the weight of a real Fender Deluxe Reverb. No tubes to worry about. The reverb and tremolo sound great. Sounds great clean or over-driven. Costs less than a real Fender Deluxe Reverb. Can play for hours without worrying about tube wear. Can mute the built speaker and send line out cab sim to recorder or to PA when stage volume needs to be zero. Versatile options. Fender has made something that guitar players will love. A go-to amp to take to small gigs where they can find the perfect volume level. Even at big gigs it is good because the line out to the PA works beautifully. This amp is selling. Thousands of guitar players love this amp.

Excellent tube tone and response. Lots of headroom. I own 2 other amps which are tube amps. Same type of performance. I played through a Deluxe Reverb several years back and this compares to it. A wonderful sounding amp specially with my American Standard Tele. Good volume for gigging and super light weight as advertised.
I do not regret my purchase,

Picked one up two days ago.....and I love it. I've always loved the sound of the 65 Deluxe Reverb and was contemplating purchasing one. When I saw these were coming out it peaked my interest. I honestly think you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between this and the tube version. The added bonus is how light it is in comparison.
If you're in the market try one of these out.....Fender did a great job on this amp.
As always, thanks to the great staff at L & M Oshawa.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
