The Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue Combo
A few years ago the original Fender Blues Deluxe Combo had a gain stage upgrade & became the Hot Rod Deluxe Combo. The Hot Rod Deluxe sounds great & is one of our best selling amps. However, some players missed the super clean sounds & more subtle over drive tones of the original Blues Deluxe Combo & so Fender have reissued the amp. The other cool feature on the reissued Blues Deluxe Combo is that it comes in the vintage style tweed covering which is not available on the Hot Rod version. If country blues is your thing & you need a small to medium sized gigging combo then you should really check this amp out.
Here's what Fender say about the Blues Deluxe Reissue Combo
Fender unveiled its Tweed series amps to great success and acclaim in 1993. The concept: What if a great old collectable 1950s Deluxe or Bassman was customized with channel switching and reverb?
Behold the Reissue Blues Deluxe - a vintage-style tube amp with boutique tone at a great price that many a pro rock, country and blues player has used to superb effect. While its newer cousin, the Hot Rod Deluxe, has many modern refinements, more and more enthusiasts continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, classic features and sharp look of the original version.
Accordingly, the Reissue Blues Deluxe sends 40 watts of juice into a single 12" Special Design Eminence speaker, fueled by two 6L6 output tubes and three 12AX7 preamp tubes. Its two channels, normal (with bright switch) and drive, are voiced for classic blues, country and rock; other features include Fender spring reverb, an effects loop and two-button channel footswitch. The great look includes tweed covering, chicken head pointer knobs and a chrome control panel.
