I have a 1968 drip edge Fender Twin Reverb (blackface circuitry, not a 68 reissue) and I also own a Reissue Twin Reverb. The two amps sound great! Blindfolded you'd have a hard time hearing what amp sounds better. Because of this, I'll admit that I believed that handwired amps might be somewhat over hyped. I thought perhaps the pro hand wiring people are the techs working on these amps. They are easier to service than pcb, but there's probably not that much difference in sound between handwired vs pcb. Tonight I played my friend's brand new Deluxe Reverb and it sounded amazing! It wasn't a DRRI, it was a handwired DR from George Alessandro. I've seen these amps being sold on eBay. Alessandro takes most of the guts out of a brand new DRRI and replaces them with handwired parts and a new speaker. They are pricey, but now I'm thinking I want one. I'm a little envious because while I think my DRRI sounds great, his new amp could really sing. I want to do a side by side test with his amp and mine, but I'm not sure I'd like the results. I'm starting to think hand wiring really isn't just about easier service. I do think the reissues are great amps, but I believe there might be some extra magic found in those handwired circuits. Thoughts?
