Deluxe1 is a carefully crafted model of a classic. One of the simplest but, probably, most interesting tube amplifiers for guitar.

All the circuits, from the guitar pickup to preamplifier and power styages to output transformer and speaker are modeled at the deepest possible level, modeling each single component on the actual schematics, for a real feeling of a tube amplifier.

Several options are available, from the style of guitar pickup (strongly affects the response to player's touch), to model and position of the tracking microphones.

One of the best sounding Tweed amp plugins, which I have heard up to now.

Great dynamic reaction, convincing, naturally sounding and reacting tube tones, also a - for this amp - good microphoned speaker selection.

A nice hidden feature is the MIDI expression pedal accessible bridged inputs gain control (CC11), which increases gain a lot, nice, if you look for eg. this typical "broken" Neil Young Deluxe tone, but also nice for some additional gain if you use the pedal more decent.

Works and sounds fine with Strats or Teles, I personally found bass sounding a little bit too loose for my taste with humbucker guitars, at least with PAF pickups, but an additional (eq or) HP filter with a center frequency around 100Hz (or slightly less or more) in front solves this problem easily. Then you get even with humbuckers beautiful vintage clean, crunch and even intense, great sounding overdrive tones with still good dynamic reaction, you can even adjust some tones, which already come close to a Plexi.

Tremolo also works and sounds fine.

Add a vintage spring reverb, a vintage phaser, Leslie or Univibe, or even a RAT or SD-1, and you're in sonic heaven - at least as a guitarist and do not look for any Metal-tones.

My only personal wish - maybe for a future upgrade is to add an option to be able to deactivate the built-in speaker/mircophone section optionally, so that you can also use external IR's instead. Not that the built-in ones sound bad, quite the opposite, but the are limited tho this amp and speaker and especially this amp also sounds excellent with other, larger cabinets and other speakers.

Nevertheless highly recommender if you look for really good sounding Tweed amp tones.

Price is fair for the quality.
