The Deltone is a 6V6-based, 20 Watt, single 12" combo. It is the result of requests from longstanding customers to build a black line series to emulate the beautiful sounds of the pre-CBS blackface amplifiers. The Deltone is a true two-channel amp with two inputs for each channel. One channel offers a straight sound and the other channel offers vibrato and reverb.
The Tremolo circuit was modified from the opto-coupled or photo-cell tremolo circuit in the blackface amps and moved to a bias modulated circuit. The Reverb circuit has also been altered from the 12AT7 driver tube to a 12AU7. This change provides a more pleasing reverb sound to the ear.
The Normal channel of the Deltone has volume, treble and bass. The Vibrato channel has volume, treble, middle, bass, reverb, speed, and intensity. The original blackface deluxe amp did not have a middle control. The middle control is a great addition as it provides more control for the player's midrange sound.
The Deltone comes standard with a 6V6 tube configuration. The amp can accommodate a 6L6 configuration with 35 Watts of output power. An additional feature with the 6L6 configuration is a 4k/8k option. This allows the player to simply switch the load to provide a cleaner or more distorted sound. The 4k option provides cleaner tones, while the 8k option will lower the wattage and provide quicker mid-range break up.
