all the tweed you need
i really enjoy playing through this amp, at low to mid levels the clean is full and warm! the quality of the build seems pretty good, no complaints. it comes with a nice foot switch pedal for your two channels and reverb. oh it has a real spring reverb inside! huge plus! it comes in a bag that is screwed to the bottom of the amp. i wound up taking it out of the bag and just setting it inside the amp for now, ill screw it down soon. my only complaint is that it doesn't have the best clean headroom. this is a 40 watt amp so its absolutely loud. but the clean headroom dies out around 5 on the volume level. I'm pretty sure it just needs a better speaker than the stock one it comes with so ill be swapping that out eventually.
Road Worthy, Classic Rockabilly Tone
I run 2 of these Fender Amps with a Danelectro Reel Echo, splitting the main signal to the left and the delay signal to the right. It gives me a huge splapback sound that comes as close to Gliff Gallup (Gene Vincent) as it gets. I tossed away the amp covers, preferring to get that relic-ed look from night after night of touring. I've busted the cheap input jacks a few times from jumping up on the amps during performance, and kicking the guitar cable jack accidentally. Been wanting to replace the jacks with more sturdy all metal construction jacks... maybe Fender should consider the upgrade. Would gladly have paid a few extra dollars up front for a better quality part.
A good reissue
This is a made in Mexico reissue of the great Blues Deluxe amp. This a good amp if you're planning to use the clean channel as a platform then add your pedals of choice to make it scream. The clean here is a typical Fender clean : warm, chimey, intense... and the spring reverb is just.. wow. The are two major defaults in this amp : - The first would be the linear volume knob on the clean channel (makes a huuuuuuge jump of volume from 1 to 2) that can be fixed by changing the pot to a logarithmic one. - The second is the drive channel wich i find to be a disaster.
Also, note that it takes pedals like a champ !
Great blues amp
That is a great amplifier for blues. All controls will help you to reach the tone you want, within a warm range. The drive channel is not aggressive at all. I prefer stacking an overdrive pedal to it, specially because I play lower volumes. It’s a loud amp, presenting a steep volume increase from 2 to 3, that needs to be considered if playing in small spaces. Construction is fantastic. PROS: great tone, easy to tune in, two foot switchable channels. CONS: there is no attenuation, no connection to interface, small range on the drive channel.
Small and extremely LOUD
I was in need for a small tube amp for my new apartment, then i found this, used, in mint conditions and in a really low cost. I played others others Hot Rod Deluxe before, but never a Blues Deluxe and in this one i really love the drive section that i usually avoid in my other amps. By the way it's so loud that i think i'm gonna use it for my gigs in small clubs instead of my main amp (Fender Deville Michael Landau)
