      When 2 6V6 tubes put into a Deluxe Reverb puts out 22 watts, what limits this amp to only 12 watts with identical power tubes? If Fender put in an output transformer only rated at 12 watts, that’s the same error they made on the 15 watt Tweed Deluxe amps running a pair of 6V6 tubes. Why would they do that?

      To create another model in the line of amps. Plus as power requirements increased models were renamed .The Deluxe tweed started as a 12 watt and eventually went to 22 watts. The Tweed twin started out as 35 watts and went to 135 watts!
