The Deluxe 22 from Rift Amplification is a 1x12 combo built for classic, warm tone. This is the ultimate amp for valve purists who value natural overdrive and vintage reverb and tremolos. Finished in a retro style to match your slippers and flat cap.

Blackface, Brownface & Tweed Circuits
Leo Fender first popularised blackface and tweed circuits in the 1950's. The former has a chimey, full frequency range that won't overdrive until higher volumes, while the latter is more unforgiving and percussive. Brownface bridges the gap between the two. This adds more midrange punch and reigns in highs. Renowned for making gorgeous tremolos.
About Rift Amplification
Based in Brackley, England, Rift Amplification is a boutique brand that specialise in vintage-style amplifiers. Hand-wired and built with the utmost attention-to-detail, Rift faithfully recreates some of the world's most desired traditional amps from the '50 and '60s.
Originally modifying Fender amp circuits, the company now produce their tweaked designs under their own moniker. While retaining the classic styling that you know and love, Rift's time-honoured offerings have the trusted reliability you'd expect from modern valve amplifiers, and can serve as perfect workhorses for live performances or session work.
Here's what Rift Amplification say about the Deluxe 22:
The AB763 Blackface circuit (Deluxe Reverb) from Fender was a masterpiece - it had the sweet tone of the 6V6 valves, the famous tube driven reverb, the amazing tremolo, and just right power all in a handy package. It's probably one of the most sought after vintage amps.
My version of this amp, the Deluxe 22 is a nod to the original design with all of the features that you'd expect from a handwired amplifier. Availabe with a choice of blackface, brownface, or tweed preamps, and a choice of WGS speakers.
