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

      I have had my hot rod deluxe 3 for 2 years and been extremely happy with it's performance. Great for blues or vintage rock and roll tones. Plenty of power and very reliable. From small bars to home practicing to large venues this is the all around perfect tube amp.

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

        Classic Fender Sound! Killer price for a powerful little tube amp. Great amount of control over your sound, whether you want a clean sound with reverb or overdrive. I play a lot of old country and rock and roll so it fits perfect for my sound, but every once in a while, I like to jam so old punk rock. The Hot Rod Deluxe can handle it all! 40 watts of tube power is more than enough power for small venues and recordings. And the 1x12 makes it so that I don't break my back trying to move it around.

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

          Fender makes the cleanest tube amp around, couple that with a nice vintage sounding dirt channel, add some reverb, and a 12 inch speaker and you got the hot rod deluxe III. this amp is perfect for the home player, the gigging musician, or the studio musician. Powerful and warm, with complex mids, and not too bright yet detailed top end, this amp just makes you want to rock and roll. It also plays well with effects through the front end, or the virtually noiseless effects loop built in. Its a versatile amp capable of covering many different sounds from jazz, to hard rock. Throw a an overdrive or a distortion pedal on it, and take it to shred town.

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

            The Fender Hot Rod Series of amps are some of the best sounding tube amps out there.
            The Hot Rod Deluxe features straight forward controls, a massive 40 watts of tube power, classic Fender clean tones as well as some really nice, crunchy over-drive.
            Since the clean channel is so pristine it handles effects pedals very well, or just go straight in and use the 2 button foot switch (included).
            Lush reverb & great tone, make it perfect for any performance situation.

                I refuse to play through anything else, other than a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp. I like that that it doesn't come loaded with a whole lot of extras; it's just a straight up, bare bones tube amp. It makes it much easier to pair it with my own effects rig. It sounds especially great for rock, jazz, and even a lot of alternative/harder stuff. It's easy to use; just plug and go (and a few seconds for it to warm up because it is a tube amp). You will not be disappointed. It's an extremely powerful amp. It's the only amp you'll ever need. I've played large scale theatres with this amp. It is amazing!

                  Very simple and easy to use. Minor tweeks during setup on the controls and then your rockin'!!! For best dirty sound, you should get a o/d pedal, but clean it sounds superb!!!
