The Hot Rod Deluxe III comes equipped with pair of 6L6 power tubes and a versatile trio of 12AX7 preamp tubes to provide you with that legendary low-end headroom.

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III 1x12" Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    If you need a great clean tone, or a vintage, bluesy breakup, you can't possibly go wrong with Fender's Hot Rod series. This amp is extremely easy to use, and sounds great in any situation. From live gigs, basement jams, recording, or simply practicing in your living room. 40 watts of tube power will carry you over just about any instrument. Like I said, you simply can't go wrong with this amp!

      Comments about Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III 1x12" Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

      I haven't had an amp that works this well for multiple types of music in a long time. I cant find a bad sound with this thing if I try. The volume is very useable in all situations and the sound quality is just amazing. I can get anything from jazzy cleans to heavy rock styles in seconds.

          Comments about Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III 1x12" Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

          Great fender cleans, and the hot rod dirt this amp is famous for. Great for blues and rock n roll. It's one of the most iconic fender amps around. 40 watts is plenty loud to jam with a drummer, and its low enough wattage to where you can crank up the gain and cook the tubes a little and get some sizzle from your gain channel when you need it. The footswitch is super easy to use as well and you can go back and forth from clean to overdriven seamlessly. This is one great amplifier

                  Performing in a blues rock band 4 nights a week on the average, I've heard this thing in action many, many times. We play covers & originals in the styles of SRV, Clapton, Hendrix, ZZ Top and dial it down to Otis Redding, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry & like. This amp delivers in loud & soft volume settings. Having witnessed this amp constantly for 4 years I stand behind this review. That being said...I'm a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                    If you are looking for a small but powerful club amp, you should definitely check this out. It has a good clean channel and a recently improved distortion channel offering versatility at an affordable price point. As this is a tube amp, you get that fatter tube tone that will cut through the band in a small club no problem.

                      You can use this anywhere you need good loud tone. Classic Fender clean with a distortion channel. The tubes help give it the warmth you want. From stage to studio, it won't let you down. I only wish tube amps weren't as heavy, but they are.
