Lianne La Havas has mentioned using a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe live in a Guitar World interview. From the Guitar World interview: > **What do you plug it into?** > > On stage, normally, I have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe when I play my gigs with the band. But when I’m playing just solo, I’ll normally go through the DI and I’ve got a SansAmp, which I think the sound comes out really nice. That’s what I recorded, actually, for the guitar on the album. It’s mostly through a SansAmp. Or I have a portable Roland Cube Amp, which is like a practice amp, so I take that around with me as well.more

After many years without a Fender amp I purchase one of these in Blonde Tolex. I envisioned it being a blues amp which of course it is very good for. The 12" Celestion speaker was a great match for the powerful tube electronics featured. The overdrive channel was interesting but limited and the foot pedal only controlled the overdrive leaving switching from reverb and back a manual chore. I added a Line 6 M 13 effects array to compensate but I missed the true Fender reverb. The other problem it gave me was the breaking point on the clean channel. So much volume had to be added to achieve it. I tried modding the tubes according to some forums I read but wasn't that happy with the results. I still use the Hot Rod for clean channel play, and in tandem with the M 13 box but my go-to amp is now my Fender '68 Custom Vibrolux.
