    I played one of these amps when I was in Thailand and I loved the tone. It had great touch sensitivity and a beautiful clean crisp bite! I finally decided to buy one. I was excited when I finally recieved it because it was on back order. When I opened it my wife, ( a photographer ) immediately began taking pictures of my new toy. It looked great! As I was looking at it I thought it appeared to be tweaked a bit. I plugged it in and was I ever happy! The tone was everything I remembered and I knew I could get some really great sound out of this live. As my wife positioned it near the window I saw a spider web like line on the side of the amp. As I looked closer I could se that the amp had a crack behind the covering. I looked at the entire amp and found that it had cracks on both sides. Amazingly the amp still worked great but I didn't want a damaged amp so I immediately contacted M.F. They were very quick to take care of me and offered a replacement. I haven't recieved it yet but I am eager to get it and take it out for a spin!
    My complaint is that the cabinet is nowhere near the construction quality of the old bassman amps which this amp is supposed to be modeled after. It's very thin plywood. Fender could have done much better than this and charge an additional $50.00. Once you hear this amp you will be happy to pay for it.Even at a highr price.
    The other issue I had was the cover. I ordeed this over the phone and I was told that the amp did not come with a cover. I ordered a cover for an amp of the same size beacause I wanted a cover. The cover has yet to arrive. It turned out the amp actually came with a nice looking cover. The problem is that it's 6 inches shorter than my amp! Hopefully this is solved with the next one.
    This is not an all around amp. I play blues , funk and venture into some 70's rock. It could work on many things but it's my opinion that if you want to play Metallica, get a different amp. If you think there is one amp that does it all, then you need to think again. Too many reviews say things like," My Super Reverb sucked so I plugged in my JC 120 to finish my gig! Right! All amps have a unique tone. This one is fantastic!I highly recommend you check this out! Especially you blues players!

    I was excited about this amp when I first bought it, but within 6 months it was in for repairs. The Fender authorized repair tech told me the circuit board was junk. He couldn't even find the reason it was shutting completely off. I took it home, and a week later it quit again - completely shutting down. This time the tech found 2 bad solder joints and repaired them. 6 months later it is going back for the third time -- as a chord or note diminishes the amp distorts or "rattles". It's too bad the basic tube amp of the sixties can't be reproduced with more reliability, especially considering what they cost. I am going to try this latest repair, and if it goes again I am going to fix it myself with a .45 caliber Kimber.

      I bought this amp new in the 90's.
      I love it!
      Replaced 1 speaker a few yrs ago.
      Recently replaced corroded input jacks and tubes.
      It's an investment that I don't regret.

      Comments about Fender Blues DeVille 410 Reissue Guitar Amp:

      This is one of the best Fender products I've ever purchased. I feel like it's Christmas every day with this baby. All blues-playing friends always want to plug in to this baby with their different axes to see how it will tweak their sound. Everyone is jealous of this amp! I use my Tele, Fat Strat, Les Paul Studio, and Ibanez RG on this. This is a sick blues amp with great classic rock applications too. I wish I could turn it up more than 1.5 to 2 in my apartment!

        Comments about Fender Blues DeVille 410 Reissue Guitar Amp:

        I use this Deville 410 for slide guitar and harmonica. Ive gigged with this guitar and use it at least 4 times a week and I bought it new in 2007. When I play harp I just switch out the Pre-amp tubes and thats it. I havent changed the power tubes yet though im going to have that done professionally next month. I only wish this amp had a pine cabinet. I love 4 speakers and am a lifer with 4x10 amps. My next amp will be a Fender Super Reverb and Ill use my Deville Blues Reissue primarily for harmonica and as a back up guitar amp. I actually have a gig next weekend and will be looking forward to using my amp. Im a proud owner!!!

        Comments about Fender Blues DeVille 410 Reissue Guitar Amp:

        This amp is sturdy and ready to play out of the box. The stock groove tubes and eminence speakers sound just fine, and I feel it makes a great clean base to add your effects loops to. All of the standard features (Ext. Out, Pre Amp In, etc.) are included. I aim for a brighter, chime sounding yet still warm guitar sound in my outfit, and the eq's as well as the bright switch give me what I need. The built in reverb is okay, but don't expect a holy grail sound out of it. The drive channel is perfect, is it sounds just like the amp's clean channel as it begins to break up and just gives off a light grit. I would recommend getting wheels on this amp, however (the thing weighs a ton, my rubber handle snapped off within a month of use). I recommend this amp to anyone into blues, indie, alternative, lighter rock, etc. Those who are minimalists in their effects should find just what they need built in. As previously mentioned, this amp does need attenuation if you are practicing and want the breakup, or if you're an apartment and don't want to wake the neighbors (1 does not sound like one, more like 5). After a month of use, I do not desire another amp. It's great.

        Very nice amp

        By TERENCE OLAUGHLIN

        Comments about Fender Blues DeVille 410 Reissue Guitar Amp:

        Great value. Definately reccommend.
        The raw power of this amp can be almost frightening. It has a beautiful mellow tone but I rarely turn it up higher than 2.
        Well put together and the classic tweed cover looks very nice
        Blows away most amps in this price range.

        Why is the reverb so weak?

        By Blloze in the Nite

        from Northwest

        Comments about Fender Blues DeVille 410 Reissue Guitar Amp:

        reverb is a huge disappointment
        It is made in Mexico, but a pretty damned good amp --EXCEPT for the weak reverb. I don't get it -- what am I doing wrong? Just totally lacks that traditional Fender reverb power. You could never get Dick Dale Surf tones out of this amp!

        Am tempted to trade it in for a Twin or Super Reverb IF the new ones still pack the punch. My older Fender tube amp is 46 years old. What happened?

        Bought this new, but had to take it back just to get the non-working foot-switch cord replaced.

        A nice basic Fender amp

        By ampsnober

        from Out there

        Comments about Fender Blues DeVille 410 Reissue Guitar Amp:

        Owned this amp for several years now, recorded several records with it and used it live at least 50 times. Its well built and reliable. I think it's a great amp overall but I will mention a few things that may be helpful to know up front.Like most current Fenders, this amp is exceedingly bright/brittle. With humbuckers it might not be a problem but with single coils its pretty bad. Replacing the stock speakers with something much darker from the Eminence line, like the 'Lil Buddy improves the sound drastically, but also adds about 20lbs of weight.The drive channel is buzzy, fizzy garbage but the clean channel is great and takes pedals EXTREMELY well. It's a great clean base for all types of effects. The reverb is not as drastic as many other models, which some people may prefer and some may not.Last, changing the tubes can make a big difference in the sound. Experimenting with 5751s in the preamp and 12AT7 or 12AY7s in the phase inverter will help dial in the sound you're looking for. Biasing the power tubes hotter or colder also helps change the breakup characteristics to taste.Overall a great amp though, especially if you can afford to customize it a bit.
