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.

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.
