Reeves Amplification Releases the Space Cowboy

The amp features a slightly modified preamp of the highly regarded Custom 50, adjustable boost, and two knob reverb controls.

Cincinnati, OH (June 6, 2014) -- Reeves Amplification announces the release of the all-new Space Cowboy. An all-tube guitar amplifier that features a slightly modified preamp of the highly regarded Custom 50, adjustable boost, and a two-knob reverb control.

“Our simple control layout and rock solid hand-wired construction of tube amplifiers speaks for itself”, said Bill Jansen, owner of the Cincinnati-based company. “The new Space Cowboy offers the classic tones we've been known for, but with a few enhancements to make it even more versatile – I think players will find this an exciting amplifier."

At just $2,499 (estimated US street price) the Space Cowboy, (available in 50-watt or 100-watt versions) is an all-tube class A/B head with the tone, good looks and rugged construction you would expect to find in a Reeves amplifier.

All Reeves amplifiers feature rugged multi-ply hardwood cabinetry, 16-gauge steel chassis, custom Heyboer transformers, and hand-wired turret board construction for durable, roadworthy performance.

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.

Heavy.

If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
