classic amp

By yoTrakkz, 04/10/2011
I looked for an amp like this for a while, that has a good clean tone to build off of that still can get a nice subtle tube "drive" at higher volumes. This amp has the ability to provide that but, like most stock amps, requires a little tinkering to get the best results. I swapped out the stock speaker for a Jensen C12K (very nice, clean and powerful speaker), Then upgraded the power tubes to JJ's and RAISED the bias (it comes biased VERY cold from the factory), and then swapped out the 12AX7 preamp tubes for two JJ's 12AT7 - this lowers the gain in the preamp stage and has the greatest impact on providing a lot more headroom.

UTILIZATION

This amp definitely has the quality of the "fender clean" but it is darker and less spikey than the Hot Rod Deluxe. More useable in my opinion. It is designed to have the "Tweed" character in its stock form so it will breakup rather early (around 4 on the volume) if played stock.

SOUNDS

Sounds great, very warm and clear.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, If you want vintage, 'boutique' tone for not a lot of change, this is where you get it. Plus side.. it's a Fender! They wrote the book on amp design back in the formative days of rock 'n roll! For me, I keep everything stock, and this amp is definitely at its best when cranked--the 'normal' channel emanates a warm, sparkly, spongy yet crunchy overdrive when maxed out, which is just the ticket for classic rock, punk, or hard blues. Playing at max (if possible) also helps wear in the speaker and tubes, so that when going back to playing at bedroom volumes, you can get even more warmth and responsiveness. The only complaints I have are that a resonance knob would be useful, as well as a half-power switch.

Fender Tweed Blues Deluxe

By MGR/Michael March, 17/10/2006
I've been playing guitar for over 30 years. My first guitar lesson was when I was 10 years old. I play guitar and mandolin. Currently i'm playing in a folk/bluegrass trio, and a four-piece rock band. My musical tastes range from rock, folk, blues, jazz.

I played this amp quite a bit before settling on a tube amp that was a little less expensive. You can pick up one of these beauties at Guitar Center for $629.

This Fender Tweed Blues Deluxe is a really nice amp! I played it quite a bit before settling on another brand tube-amp, only because of price. It's got the wonderful retro-tweed cover, chicken-head knobs, and classic grille that all give it that 50's look and feel. 40 watts of pure tube tone gives you plenty of power for just about any gig. A quality 12" Eminence speaker rounds out the sound. Spring reverb, normal and bright switch, and overdrive gives a wide array of tones and styles. Fender quality, great looks, tube tone, what else can I say? A great amp!

There really isn't much to dislike about this unit. The price is a little high, but still a deal for what you get.

Construction was top-notch. Fender quality, nice tweed cover, seemed well constructed.

This is a great amp, it's got that wonderful tube tone and plenty of power. Cool rretro tweed looks, and Fender quality!
