Good but not great
Oigimer, 14.12.2020
This is a great amp considering it's price, it's well suited for the gigging musician with all the needed features to be a great live pedal platform, but there are a couple things you should consider before deciding:

- There are better sounding amps from fender, if you're looking for the very best with recording in mind, try a deluxe ou any other non master amp from them

- It's not a good solution for home/bedroom playing, because it's loud and control is difficult, the master doesn't work for the clean channel and there is a very high jump in volume from 1 to 2 and beyond that is quite unusable outside a stage or a studio

- the gain channel is an acquired taste, most dislike it, if you're planning to use it as a platform amp that is not an issue

All that being said, this is an awesome amp for most band and/or back-line scenarios, it's light, it's powerful, it has plenty bottom end, it sounds great.

Perfect!
Sero, 29.01.2019
I have owned II and III of HRD versions ..but this one is a real deal!

PROS:
- Sound is amazing
- Volume control is superb
- Distortion channel and more drive are awesome
- Lighter than previous versions for 3-4KG
- I think it doesn't have to have volume box (some kind of attenuator) on fx loop anymore for better response.
- No need to change tubes and speaker ;)

CONS:
- All screws on the amp should be tightened. (they were pretty loose)
- Tolex is poorly attached to the amp which costs 850¤.

A Handy All Round Gigging Amp
Chariotdrvr14, 28.03.2019
I wish I'd had this all these years, but better late than never. A very versatile amp as is. I say this but it comes with a caveat that is that I don't think that Fender has really mastered the overdrive on this yet. Still some insufficient midrange on the overdrive section. But I make up for that by using my Blackstar Hi-Dual pedal. And, I did wind up modding this amp by switching out two of the 12AX7's for an 12AY7 and a 12AT7 which smooth out control (or eliminates the volume jump) But all in all I love this amp. It's been really handy for gigging when I don't want to drag along a bigger rig or if the style I'm playing is better suited for its clean tones and lovely vintage sounding spring reverb sound

Fender Hot Rod Delux IV
SomTom, 02.12.2019
It is en excellent amlifier - with a beautiful sond that I've been longing for. The only thing that I would change is to place the knobs from the top to the frontside.
