    Is the tremolo harmonic or bias on the Deluxe?

    The trem on the smaller brown Fenders (Princeton, Deluxe, Vibrolux) was bias vary, the trem on the “Pro Line” brown amps (Super, Pro, Concert, Twin, etc) was harmonic.

    Everyone loves my 1961 Deluxe Reverb!
    His name is “Spanky”.

    He sports a Celestion Blue as recommended by Brophy Dale.
    My gearhead friend brought over a bunch of overdrive type pedals to compare one day.
    Spanky was on about 2.
    When my friend determined which pedal sounded best, I had him take the pedal out and plugged guitar straight in.
    Then we put Spanky on about 4 3/4 and completely blew away all those “best” pedals!

    PS – By far the best tremolo on the planet.
