Comments about Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Lacquered Tweed, 40-Watt 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

The amp sounds as beautiful as it looks... as long as you don't use the drive channel. The clean channel pairs perfectly with the Celestion A-Type speaker and has that classic Fender tone. Sure, it could use a bit more of that classic Fender gnarl, but for the price, you just can't beat it. My one main issue is the craftsmanship on these Mexican made amps. Mine stopped working after two months and wouldn't even turn on. Turns out it had tubes and one of the capacitors was already shot, but I can't complain too much. Fender's warranty took care of everything and it didn't cost me a dime to get repaired.

Comments about Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Lacquered Tweed, 40-Watt 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I can't say anything about the Hot Rod deluxe that hasn't already been said. I will say that the lacquered tweed looks amazing. Completely different from the standard tweed. Sounds great with a Fulltone OCD. Glad I bought it!

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Lacquered Tweed, 40-Watt 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I had downsized from a Twin Reverb to a BLACK TOLEX HRD and gigged with it for years. The HRD was a great amp, but not as much bottom end as the Twin. So, I read the product info and reviews about the Tweed's Celestian Class A speaker and made the change, as I love the Tweed look. So, glad I did. It took just a short bit of time to get the EQ just right. I only use it clean and push the pedals to the front end. My pedals now sound better, and I have more of a rounded tone with a beefier bottom end. As an aside, I believe the new HRD IV may have that same Class A Celestian that the Tweed has, not sure.
