Product Description

Steeped with vintage style and sound, the Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue is a two-channel, all-tube combo amp that gives you expansive tonal range and a 40-watt output. Guitarists love it not only as a great combo amp for live situations, but as a studio amp as well. As its name suggests, the Blues Deluxe Reissue serves up a sweet sustaining tone that has made it the mainstay amp for numerous blues musicians. But don't be fooled -- it's got the power and range to deliver a wide range of great sounds, for numerous contexts and musical styles.

It's Louder Than You Think

The Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue utilizes 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes in the gain stage to develop its characteristic singing, sustaining tone. After that, you've got 2 x 6L6 output tubes that attenuate your signal into a notably punchy and loud 40 watts. It pushes this power through a single 12" Special Design speaker from Eminence. Still, you'll find that the Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue never gets too loud for use even in a small studio, which means that you can crank that preamp end as hot as you want to generate the desired tone, while still keeping your output manageable and avoiding eviction notices.

Two Inputs and Two Channels

Your Blues Deluxe Reissue is a two-input design, and has two channels to maximize its versatility onstage. The Normal channel gives you a good clean sound that immediately presents substantial tube warmth in the low end, and classic-sounding transient response in the highs. The Normal Channel also includes a Bright switch for boosting the highs and high mids. When it's time to take a solo, the Drive channel is there -- opening up the singing lead tones that made this amp famous in the first place.

When you want to add some depth and size to your sound, you've got a genuine Fender spring reverb on hand that delivers an unmistakable sound. There's an effects loop as well, so you can plug in all your other toys!

Includes a Footswitch!

The included two-button footswitch connects into the top panel and allows you to engage the Drive Channel. It also allows you to switch the Reverb On and Off.

Tweed Never Went Out of Style

The Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue is a decidedly handsome devil with its classic cloth tweed covering, fitted with chicken head pointer knobs and a chrome control panel. You'll come to love its helpful carrying handle on the top, as well as the fact that it weighs in at a manageable 50 pounds.

Product Description

In 1993, Fender released the 'Tweed' series amps to great success and acclaim. The concept: what if a great old collectable 1950s Deluxe or Bassman was customized with channel switching and Reverb?

The Blues Deluxe and Blues DeVille were launched as vintage-styled tube amps with 'boutique' tone at mass-produced prices, and many pro players in the rock, country, and blues fields used them with great results. After a few years, the Blues Deluxe and Blues DeVille were reborn as the Hot Rod Deluxe and Hot Rod DeVille, when they received modified circuitry, a third More Drive channel, and Black/Silver cosmetic treatment.

Though the Hot Rod series amps are more popular than ever today, increasing numbers of enthusiasts continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, features and look of the original versions -- brought to you now in this reissued amp. The Blues Deluxe Reissue produces 40 watts into a single 12" Special Design speaker by Eminence.

Features:

-3 12AX7 preamp tubes and 2 6L6 output tubes.
- Normal and Drive channels, voiced for classic blues, country and rock styles
- Bright switch for Normal channel
- Fender spring reverb
- Effects Loop
- Cloth Tweed covering, Chicken Head pointer knobs and chrome control panel
- Two-Button Footswitch for Drive Select and Reverb On/Off is included

"Does anyone really want some other amp?"
Sound: Better than a Vox AC 30 Feature: Why not have more drive? Anyway, I can get all the range I need from this amp. Quality: I, too, had a tube go bad right off (the smaller tube). But the dealer gave me a new one. I now works perfectly. Value: Others here have said it. No better amp under a thousand smackers. Manufacturer Support: Like I said. The Wow Factor: It's tweed, man. It's classic tube Fender all the way.
Style of Music: Many, many styles

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Give me Tweed, or give me . . . what else is there?"
Sound: What does an amp gotta have? Tone. I bought the Fender Blues Deluxe reissue because it sounds good, looks good, is priced good and is in no way a pretentious amplifier! Use of a Fender Strat or Tele with this amp is a no brainer if one wants to get out of it what it was designed for: clean, crisp and clear sound on the normal channel, and a slight yet distinct distortion on the drive channel. Tone. It's called a Blues Deluxe because . . . anyone?. . . it's for blues and vintage rock style music! Hey. It's not voiced for metal or any other style which requires extreme distortion or tons of knobs and switches and buttons and lights and stuff. Use an effects pedal if that's your cup of meat. I personally dig a DigiTech RP-350 pedal to achieve the effects which are NOT included in this amp, and I gotta tell yas, it sounds great coming outa this amp. The built-in, adjustable reverb is actual and physical vintage Fender long-spring reverb. It's one of the things that made Fender amps so popular. It has its very own distinct sound. This amp has a fantastic overall tone, which can only be described as "Whole Wheat." It has all the sharp, jagged edges nicely rounded off and still has plenty of color, but the kind color one WANTS in amplified sound. Not flat or dull or one dimensional, it exudes spacial flavors and intricacies not found in most amps in its class. It can be throaty and raw, but still the mids and highs come through nicely. And volume? Whaa? Here let me remove my earplugs so I can hear you. This thing can SPEAK when it needs to. I keep the volume knob at about 2 most times so as not to cause a nosebleed. This one goes beyond ten, or even eleven. This one goes to TWELVE! I have read in some reviews of this amp that a different speaker can be put in to achieve sudden nirvana. So why didn't Fender put in said different speaker? Why did anyone buy an amp that needed a different speaker? I dunno, maybe some people just can't be made happy with what they have. You gotta hear one of these amps though, to really appreciate the great, smooth, rich sound. Suffice to say, I got one. Feature: The amp came with a dust cover and a remote two button foot switch. The dust cover is heavy, olive-brown colored, tightly-woven nylon material with sewn-on, woven nylon edging. Nice looking, with the Fender logo silk-screened on it. The foot switch (stows inside the amp with a velcro strap) has reverb and channel select buttons, is made of heavy duty aluminum with hard plastic sides, and an included extension cord. All work perfectly and are made to last. The foot switch needs rubber feet, though. Ease of Use: As amplifiers go, this one is a fairly easy to use. I mean, it has On and Standby switches, the ever-so-cool Fender gem light, enough Bakelite chicken-head knobs to keep it interesting (8 of 'em) and to dial-in the tone, 1/4 inch pre-amp out, power-amp in, foot switch and external speaker jacks. Not too hard for the average rocket scientist. Quality: My Blues Deluxe has been in action for about a year as of this writing and is working perfectly, exactly as expected. I do not, however, beat-up, pound, gash, thrash or throw-about my equipment. The Blues Deluxe is not intended to be a "roadie-proof" amp, for it is covered in beautiful lacquered, woven-tweed-cloth material (just like the vintage Fender deluxe guitar cases, straps and gig bags), which is not bullet-proof stuff. It doesn't even have metal corner protectors, so expect to be a little more diligent in the "take care" department, that is, if one doesn't want it to become stained, frayed, scratched or damaged from "stooge-boy" rough handling. This amp is very well put together with no sloppy workmanship. Fender's quality control is as auspicious here as ever. I would not have purchased it had it been otherwise. Value: I give this amp an eleven on the value scale. One doesn't have to look too hard at the "other" amplifier manufacturer's prices to be convinced otherwise. Fender has achieved excellent value-to-pricing on this amp. There is no way I could build this amp for anywhere near it. Oh sure, it is now made in old Mejico, but that is to be expected these days. it proves not an issue with this amp though, and as stated earlier, this one is very well made, very cleanly put-together. Manufacturer Support: As expected, Fender has ubiquitous factory-approved dealers to handle and take care of its valued customers. It has always been that way, as it should. I don't understand why anyone thinks it necessary to call Fender on the phone or email them for assistance. "Hello, is this Fender? Can I talk to Fender?" Why, if that were the case, Fender would be swamped with all manner of not only valid, but largely nonsensical and imbecilic queries that require an expensive, unnecessary army of people to do nothing but answer phones and emails. Not very productive, and certainly drives the cost of doing business through the roof. The army of existing Fender dealers are more than capable of solving problems, I know, as I actually had a small one, once. The Wow Factor: Hey it's tweed cloth! You know, like the ones they made in the fifties. It oozes cool. Y'all can have yer tolex. Give me tweed, or give me . . . nothing! Overall: I invested some serious investigative time prior to my decision to purchase this particular amplifier, so as to make sure I made the right choice. I did. This amp is beautiful, in sound, in looks, in smell. That's right, it smells good too. All tuby and warm. You think that's weird? Well, I bet most people like that smell. Anyway, after playing many, many amps, this one had the vintage vibe I was after. It was not a hard decision. I also liked its cousin, the Hot Rod Deluxe, but at the time, the "Rod" didn't come in tweed, so, even though I don't get the third "more drive" channel the "Rod" has to offer, I do gots the tweed, and I have not looked back. Now, if this here amp ever decides to blow-up, or burn-down, or burn-up, I would get another just like it, or, I would go broke and get the hand-wired version; the '57 amp or the Twin Amp to go along with my '57 Strat. Whooee!
Style of Music: Uh, Blues, vintage rot and role
