This Hot Rod Packs Tube Power in a Portable Package!

From the early days, Fender has been turning heads with its trusted tube amplifiers. Put simply, if you've heard an electric guitar before, there's a decent chance you've heard it through a Fender Amplifier. In '96, Fender introduced its Hot Rod DeVille amplifier, and the series has been making waves ever since. In this incarnation, the Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 III Guitar Combo Amplifier packs real tube power in a 60-watt package that's big enough to fill a small venue -- yet compact enough to fit in your trunk.

The Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 is well-known for sounding great with pedals. Check out this video demonstration from Fender:

Get Extra Punch with More Drive

Most guitar amps offer a clean and a distorted channel, but the Hot Rod DeVille 212 III takes things one step further. Along with the standard Normal and Drive channels, it offers a More Drive switch, for those moments when you feel the need to "take it up to eleven."

Dial in Your Tube Tone

With genuine Groove Tubes tube amplifiers in the preamp and power amp sections, the Hot Rod DeVille 212 III has a voice of its own. Three-band EQ is provided with graduated volume and tone potentiometers that offer extra-smooth sweeps as you rotate the vintage-style "chicken head" control knobs. You've also get presence control and Fender's famed spring reverb on board, so you'll have no trouble dialing in the vintage tube tone you're after.

Features:

- Three-channel 60 watt tube amplifier for electric guitar
- Three selectable channels: normal, drive, and more drive
- Two Celestion G12P-80 12" speakers (supports 2 or 4 ohms impedance)
- Preamp: 3 x Groove Tubes 12AX7

- Three-band EQ, presence, reverb, master volume, drive volume, drive select switch, and bright switch
- Graduated volume and tone potentiometers offer smooth, predictable linear sweep
- Solid state rectifier

Product Description

The world's most popular tube amps just got better! Fender(r) Hot Rod series amplifiers are found on every stage in the world, large and small, and are used by guitarists from all walks of life. The Hot Rod DeVille 212 III delivers unmistakable Fender tone and is the perfect platform for musicians to craft their own signature sound. These no-frills amps are affordable, reliable and loud, and they pair extremely well with stomp boxes.

The Hot Rod DeVille 212 III is a 60-watt combo with a classic 2x12" speaker configuration borrowed from the legendary Twin Reverb amp, the low-end headroom characteristic of 6L6 tubes, a versatile all-12AX7 tube preamp, an effects loop and more. It produces amazing clean and overdriven tones and luscious Fender spring reverb, and a 4-ohm extension speaker output even lets you add a cabinet for additional stage coverage. Additional Hot Rod Deville 212 III upgrades include an easier-to-read black control panel with front-reading text, badge, streamlined footswitch, graduated volume and treble pot tapers, and dual Celestion(r) G12P-80 speakers.

Features:

- Celestion G12P-80 12-inch speakers tighten bass response and offer harmonically enhanced character when pushing hard in the Drive channel (Deluxe III and DeVille 212 III models)
- Improved modified tone circuit gives tighter overdrive voice and midrange punch
- Graduated volume and tone potentiometers offer smoother, more refined and predictable linear sweep
- Pedalboard-friendly footswitch design is sleek, tough and stage-ready
- Fender badge lets you know it's a retooled and refueled Hot Rod amp
- black non-reflective control panel makes onstage adjustments easier

zZounds Expert Review
The Hot Rod DeVille is a pretty awesome amp with a ton of volume and tone options on tap. Its dual 12-inch speaker configuration makes it perfect for those who need to fill out clubs, or even larger venues. I noticed it had a substantial amount of headroom and stayed clean until it started to get cranked up, which was great for using pedals like boosts and overdrives to give it an extra push. My favorite part about the amp is definitely the punch that the 6L6 tubes give to single notes, and most noticeably, to chords. I loved playing funk rhythms on it just as much as I loved playing jazz chord melodies, proving that it can easily adapt to its player's musical needs. Above all, it was so touch-responsive that it took some getting used to, but I consider this a standard characteristic of a great tube amp anyhow. If you prefer more aggressive tones, this amp has you covered with three channels: Normal, Drive, and More Drive. Add to that the fact that it has a separate Volume knob to dial in just the right amount of grit before leveling it all out with a Master Volume, and you have even more options. Overall this is one of my favorite Fender 2x12 combos, and you really can't beat it for under 1,000 bucks.

"Good buy for the buck"
Sound: I would suggest working with the amp to create your unique tone with your pedal and off course a volume controller. This amp is loud and has enough juice to rock your local bar/hall. Feature: For the value/price; what I see as features are the tubes, construction etc. Buying an amp without features/ gizmo's is the best investment. This is why we use effects to color our sound. Amps should come with basics. Volume, bass, treble, middle and a master volume control. Ease of Use: Tailoring your sound to ones needs has nothing to do with playability. I would agree it needs some tweeking so be prepared to spend some time before gigging. Quality: Had no problems so far....but, as with any tube amp....."warm the tubes" prior to gigging. Value: Good bang for the buck Manufacturer Support: Had no issues or reason to contact Fender yet. The Wow Factor: The design is boring Overall: For the price, sound and weight etc., cant go wrong
Style of Music: dance/ funk
