The reissue Fender Hot Rod Blues Deluxe is a vintage-style tube amp with boutique tone
at a great price that many pro rock, country and blues players have
used to superb effect. While its newer cousin, the Hot Rod Deluxe™, has
many modern refinements, more and more enthusiasts continue to request
the warm tone, unique circuitry, classic features and sharp look of the
original version. It pumps 40 watts into a single 12” Special Design
Eminence® speaker fueled by two 6L6 Groove Tubes® output tubes and three
12AX7 preamp tubes. Its two channels (normal with bright switch, and
drive) are voiced for classic blues, country and rock; other features
include Fender® spring reverb, effects loop, two-button channel
footswitch, tweed covering, chicken head knobs and chrome control panel.

Tube Circuitry: Simply put, there’s really nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube amplifier. For decades, the tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps a defining and unmistakable voice, as heard on most professional recordings and performances of the past 60 years—the music you’ve known your whole life.
Spring Reverb: Among their many fine sonic attributes, Fender guitar amps like this one are prized in particular for their luscious spring reverb. For that wet, shimmering ambient sound ranging from subtle to cavernous, Fender lets you dial it in exactly to taste.
Effects Loop: For perfect placement of your outboard effects in the signal chain, this amp features an effects loop with ¼” preamp output and power amp input jacks.
Tweed Covering: For a timeless air of vintage-style authenticity straight from the original 1950s golden age of Fender amps, this amplifier is smartly clad in a classic tweed covering that never goes out of style.
Eminence Speaker: Eminence delivers versatile speaker tone and performance spanning every sonic shade from clean to mean, and everything in between.
Chrome Control Panel: In addition to its handsome tweed covering, the Blues Deluxe Reissue amp features the silvery style of a mirrored chrome control panel.
