The Super 33 is a variation on the Super Deluxe and roughly trying to give both channels of the Vanderbilt 33 with some exceptions. We replace the first tube with the EF86/806 -- the fat-off-brite switch becomes an Off-Boost switch. In the off "Clean”mode, it is only the EF86 with only the Gain and Cut knob working. In the Boost mode, it engages the 2nd tube/gain stage, EQ and Master Volume. This is a bit hotter than the full EQ channel on the Vanderbilt 33, which is more just like the regular Super Deluxe channel -- all 12AX7. Because the Master engages, you can control the output level in relationship to the Off mode. It has a lot of great tones in it, including a fatter, more aggressive gain than the Super Deluxe can achieve.
