Super ’78

Reeves Super '78 and Cab


The Super '78 captures the feel and tone of rock's golden period during the '70's-'80' you the flexibility to go from clean to mean. The Reeves Super '78 features 50-watts using two Ruby EL34BHT's. We also use premium, ultra fast recovery 11amp-1000volt diodes for better mids, tighter lows and a sweeter top end, as well as DC on the preamp tube filaments to minimize hum and noise. The controls provide tons of tone shaping capability, and include knobs for gain, drive, bass, mid, treble, cut and a post phase inverter master volume. There's also a resonance control which lets you dial in the exact bass response you want, from a tight and punchy tone to looser, more vintage tone.
