"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!

"A Revelation!"

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)

"The Cream"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
this amp sounds amazing it is very light which is great if you gig a lot, the clean is super warm and creamy and juicy and fat and sparkly and you just want to cuddle in it! it still maintains the standard of the hot rod legacy now the drive channel is a little muddy but usable I don't think its great but this amp isn't a dirty amp at all its not supposed to be it is all about that clean channel. The celestion really gives it some snap it sounds great and everyone knows these amps love pedals . I say 5 stars great product.
