AUDIO AMP CO Black'n Tweed Deluxe Amp

This version combines the typical characteristics of a Deluxe 5E3 circuit from 1958 with the qualities of an original Blackface AB763 circuit, what makes the amp sound very interesting and special.

In the 1st Channel you have a Tweed Deluxe Sound with reverb, whereas the 2nd Channel offers you a Blackface Deluxe Sound with reverb.
