A good looking package and a solid performer. I had this one for 5 years and never had a problem and it stills sounds great. [read more on Audiofanzine]BobbyB rated this unit on 2004-07-31.

Although the kid playing it wasn't anything to right to Ripley about, the amp was definitely pretty sweet. It sells for like 500 bucks, which is more than I want to spend. But nevertheless, this amp is one of the best sounding things I've ever heard. (I've played and listened to Crates, Marshalls, Line 6's, and other top notch names.)

I considered the Peavey classic 30 and the Carvin 50 watt amps. The decision was made on price - unbelieveable at $400, but now that I have played this, I would buy it at retail $575 because it is worth it.

If you are looking for a great clean sound and you don't need heavy distortion but like that vintage crunch this is the amp for you.

Bottom line is, that if God played guitar he would play through this amp. [read more on Audiofanzine]Midnight Crossing rated this unit on 2003-02-23.
This amp is Fender's best value for the money. Perfect for jazz and blues out of the box. Although jazzers may want to look to the larger version Hot Rod Devilles, for most this will do the trick. I'd buy this amp again in a heartbeat. [read more on Audiofanzine]Matthew rated this unit on 2002-12-15.
Overall, this amp rules. Just don't rely on it for heaviness, because it's really just about the best clean amp for its price, and when combined with a nice preamp or stomp box can make an awesome distortion. [read more on Audiofanzine]Nick C. rated this unit on 2002-11-03.
If I buy another amp, it will be hard for me to not make it a Hot Rod Deluxe. I'm happy enough with this amp, and accustomed enough, that that's where I get first wood, if not last... stereo hot rod deluxe's. [read more on Audiofanzine]Patrick F. Coleman rated this unit on 2001-07-06.
