FNDR BFDLX ToneX Essential
Well, this is it - an original 1963 (SIC!) FNDR Black Face DLX Rebverb, pre CBS era. Entirely original apart from some changed filter caps. It is an amp that has been used literally by almost every big act at some point in time, at the least in one of the many studios where this amp used to be one of the standards.
It has been used in practically any genre and playing style and is extremely versatile.
The cleans and edge of breakup sounds are an incarnation of the archetypical sound of a FNDR BF amp that we have in our heads since the 60's until this day. It plays nicely with single coils and brings out the most stratty sound of a Strat, while it is also phenomenal with Humbuckers, where it can do anything from beautiful clean jazzy chords up to proper rock crunch.
It also takes pedals marvelously and in contrast to most other amps it is very generous in regard to the ease with which it can be dialed in for pedals - unlike many other amps where you have to dial things in per milimeter to get the tone right, this one has a wide range of nice settings that work well.
Due to its flexibility and the two channels, as well as its popularity, this set is larger than usual. The main accent is on the cleaner side of things with more variations, but also gainier stuff has a nice variation too.
The amp was tracked through the built in Oxford 12K5-6 speaker, the mics used are 2X Royer R121, 1X Beyerdynamic M160 and 1X Neumann U87.
The set includes 35 amp+cab captures ranging from clean to Lead. Please refer to the table under the product pics for detailed info on each capture.
