Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV 112 Guitar Combo Amplifier (1x12 Inch, 40 Watts)

Squeeze 40 creamy watts out of this bona fide tone machine. Ready for both stage and studio, the Hot Rod Deluxe delivers clear articulation at any volume.
Get ready for classic Fender tone at full throttle when you plug into this hot-rodded tube amp that could only be called "Deluxe". The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV is a rugged and powerful 40-Watt 1x12 combo tube amplifier with a 12-inch Celestion A-Type speaker that's more than capable of filling any sized room with its rich, harmonic sound whether fully cranked or turned down to a whisper. Based on the late '50s "narrow panel" tweed amplifiers, but with modern selectable gain channels and a solid-state rectifier and spring reverb driver for increased versatility, this tube amp is ready to handle the most demanding musical styles.

Three Flexible Gain Channels

It doesn't matter how many different tones your playing demands, because the Hot Rod Deluxe IV can do them all at the touch of a finger. Three selectable gain channels (Clean, Drive, and More Drive) are readily available on the control panel and the pedalboard-friendly footswitch for maximum tonal flexibility and ease of use. Since the Hot Rod Deluxe IV is brought to life by two 6L6s in the power section and three 12AX7s in the preamp, you get massive headroom and bell-like tones in the Clean channel, and anything from a grungy crunch to insane overdrive in the Drive and More Drive channel. And for even more tonal variations, Fender has added a "Bright" switch that works as a high-pass filter to add crystalline treble to any of the three channels.

Dynamic Effects

Lush and spacious Fender spring reverb is yours thanks to the modern solid read more state spring reverb driver found in the Hot Rod Deluxe IV. From outer space quakes to authentic surf-rock shimmer, the depth and variety of reverb sounds possible with the Hot Rod Deluxe IV is limited only by your spatial imagination. Fender has also included a highly efficient effects loop that makes it easy to connect your pedalboard or outboard effects to the Hot Rod Deluxe IV without losing power or adding unwanted noise. And, with the powerful tube section providing enormous headroom, this amp can open up the sound of your effects pedals for greater definition and clarity.

Modern-Vintage Looks

The Hot Rod Deluxe features retro styled "chicken head" pointer knobs, a lightweight pine cabinet, and an open back enclosure making for a classy amp that looks great in a juke-joint or an amphitheater. The vintage pilot light glows red when so you know the amp is primed and ready to go, and Fender's "Dog Bone" handle allows an easy grip wherever you lug your amp. An elegant cover for the Hot Rod Deluxe IV is also included so your amp stays fresh and never looks too rough.

"Great value and tone"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First the bad: Tolex is cheap.Not thick and spongy like a Mesa Boogie or even my Orange Rocker combo.You can see the seam was not evenly cut. Does it affect sound?Nope! Every screw on the amp was loose.When I went to remove the footswitch the back panel almost came off! I hand tightened all screws and it’s all good now.The good: Great tone!Really heavy bass amp(which I love)I had to back it off to 3 bass and treble ,middle and presence at about noon.Its very loud!Not a Marshall 100 watt stack loud but at 4 it’s too loud for bedroom volume and crystal clean with no breakup at all.The drive is good.Much better than the older Hot Rods.(Think Doobie Brothers China Grove) It also handles pedals very well.Looks like a solid high quality footswitch and the reverb is excellent!All in all a great value for a solid gigging amp.Gave it a 4 because of the Tolex and the QC but I’m being picky.Has that great Fender clean sound with nice bight from the Celestion speaker at a real good price! Don’t know how well the Tolex or grill will age but probably better than I will.Great value and sound .You should talk the wife into getting one...now!
