    Well following on from @Robbie ‘s NAD post I delved a bit deeper into researching The Fender Tone Master Deluxe Reverb..
    I’d been looking at these for a while.

    With an ongoing shoulder injury that’s now been going on about 10 months I’ve been looking for a decent lightweight amp for gigging that sounds awesome!!
    Well all can say is I’ve found it!
    It really isn’t just Fender Hype, this amp is outstanding!
    You really can’t tell it’s not a tube amp at all.
    Weighing in at a mere 23 pounds it’s just what I’ve been looking for.. And wow!! The reverb & vibrato are to die for!!!!
    Right I’m going back to play..
    Have a great weekend ya’ll & most importantly stay safe everyone:) A33D5EA2-1D13-414D-890B-1DF6FF0319FB.jpeg

    I tried the twin version and I truly enjoyed playing it, even being at the local Guitar Center. I’m a tube amp junkie, hence my forum name but these amps really do deliver the goods!!

    Enjoy and stay safe!!

    Very senseful, Nigel. Congratulations!
    When I tried one of those I made the mistake to directly compare it to a valve-Deluxe. While the Tone Master sounded really good, the valve-Deluxe sounded even better to my ears. But I wouldn't have noticed it without comparing them side by side. It's a great sounding amp, no doubt. Enjoy it in good health, and may your shoulder get better quick.

    Awesome! congrats!
    I’m smitten with the deluxe reverb tone. I haven’t played the tone master version but once at my local shop, and I was really impressed.
    Once they start showing up on the used market I may scoop one up.

    Congrats, Nigel!

    I'm getting new tubes in my DRRI, and that's got me thinking about the Tone Master DR. Lighter? Check. Line out? Check. Sounds like a Blackface DR? Well, it seems to be getting good reviews on this too. I also like that it's easy to attenuate the output, since I am living with my daughter's family now.

    I will be giving this amp some serious consideration.
