The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe is the world's most popular valve guitar amp combo.
The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III is a three channel, all valve guitar amp offering a variety of incredible Fender tones, from transparent cleans to hard rock overdrive and everything in between. With a reputation for providing a wide range of tones to suit most music styles, the Hot Rod Deluxe is an impressively versatile amp.
The Hot Rod Deluxe features three channels - Normal, Drive and More Drive. For the Normal channel, there is a Volume control as well as a Bright switch to add some more of Fender's signature high end 'sparkle'. The Drive channel has many more controls, including Treble, Bass, Middle and Presence, designed to assist users in sculpting their own signature sound. The inclusion of the More Drive channel allows for an extra amount of drive to be added, useful for boosting the volume for solos.
The Hot Rod Deluxe MkIII is equipped with an effects loop and a jack input for a two button footswitch, as well as a spring reverb, all housed in a rugged black chassis with a silver grill cloth complete with a 12 inch Celestion G12P-80 speaker. The amp's tones are created using three 12AX7 preamp tubes and a pair of 6L6 Groove Tube output valves.
Quiet enough for rehearsals, but loud enough to gig with, the Hot Rod Deluxe's 40 watt output, and its ability to maintain the quality of its tones at any volume, make it a very popular choice with bedroom players as well as professionals.
