A great choice for the gigging musician, the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III tube combo amplifier dishes out 40 watts of all tube power through a high-quality, upgraded single 12" Celestion G12P-80 speaker. 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.

    This amp is killer. Having been a big fan of the Hot Rod series in the past, I was eager to check this latest version out. Did not disappoint. Great distorted tones, and of course the legendary cleans one expects from Fender. All in all one of the most potent versions of whats already become a classic amp. Im a Sam Ash reviewer

          The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe has become the go to Fender Amp for many guitarists. Classic Fender tube tones with a modern twist of a distortion channel. Very versatile and great for any setting. Very great for pedals as well and has its own reverb built in. I myself own one of these guys and have never been disappointed by it! Stop by your local Sam Ash Music to check one out!

              The portable guitar amp market has blown up in the past few years as technolgy has allow the amps to get smaller and smaller without sacrificing tone and power. This little amp is just that..POWER. 40 all-tube watts of power feeding a single Celestion 12" speaker is a top choice amongst guitar players everywhere. Fully customizable with 3 band EQ, Presecence and Drive knob, as well as on-board Reverb. This is one of the most versatile amps on the market!

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

                I love this amp. Probably the most seen house amp in NYC. These things can play it all. Great fender cleans. Two channels of overdrive. Great Fender reverb. Footswitchable. I usually bring my own amp, but if the house has a Hot Rod Deluxe, I know I'll be fine.

                    This amp has so much to offer. It's a powerful and portable tube combo that can deliver Fender's legendary clean tone as well as screaming overdriven crunch.

                    The Hot Rod Deluxe is great for just about any style of music. Blues, jazz, rock, country, r&b, and even harder rock and metal as this amp takes pedals very well. The compact size of this amp makes it great for playing any venue as it packs quite a punch. It works just as well in the studio, delivering dependable tone.

                    I would highly recommend this amp to any musician looking for a professional quality amplifier.

                      This is such an amazing amp for an inexpensive price! It has all the power and warmth of the fender tube amps that we've come to know and love, but at a more affordable price. It also is not super heavy, so you won't kill yourself dragging it to gigs, especially in a city environment. The sound is warm, clean and full, exactly what I want out of a tube amp. I can't recommend this amp enough, it is so versatile: studio use, venues large and small, jamming, writing new material, etc. You will no doubt find many uses for this amp, and fall in love in the process!
