I'm no pro, just a casual picker and guitar enthusiast. I've tried a limited number of tube combos, but I feel I went all out on this Hot Rod Deluxe. First, I've heard it said it's not for low volume, bedroom playing . I AM USING IT THAT WAY.! The sound, the tone is like no amp I've heard. The touch response to picking is profound, every nuance and inflection is rendered. Some say an amp is not as important as the guitar (and guitarist) but if I, with my decidedly limited talent, can get the sound I'm getting then, yes, a good amp will make you play and sound better. If I could recommend any amp, the Princeton, the Blues Deluxe, the Vox AC, the Blackstar Venue, I would pick a Hot Rod Deluxe. I didn't know such tone existed, or that I could sound so much better than I do. (Irony intended)
