Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue

Guitar Combo Tube Amp

It is not without reason that the Fender amps of the tweed era (named after the amp's fabric cover) have such a great reputation as the ideal amplifiers for blues and rock 'n' roll. On the one hand, they deliver crisp cleans at a moderate volume, which is often hard to find. On the other hand, turning up the volume releases a soft, creamy distortion - lying across the fine line between clean and crunch - that is simply unrivalled.

The Reissue Blues Deluxe offers two channels, one of which is predestined for the clean department, while the other can be made to sing at a civil volume by adjusting the master volume. Practically all good sounds between Bassman and Deluxe can be produced. With the Eminence 12" speaker, the amp has enough power to fill small clubs with plenty of sound. The name says it all: The Blues Deluxe is an outstanding amp (not only, but especially) for blues and all other styles where warm, harmonically distorted sounds are desired.

THE amp for Blues and Rock'n'Roll....

Oliver aus B., 15.02.2014
What else can be told about this icon of Fender amps? Well, I had three of it over the past 20 years (original and reissue) and they never dissapointed me or let me down. The over all build quality is excellent, the tone is just pure Fender with lots of balls. Fits all kinds of music from smooth jazz to hard rock and all the way between and beyond. It sounds not as harsh as a Hot Rod Deluxe or Deville. Like Fender says, it's more a "tweedy" tone from the early Fender times. Kinda Tweed Deluxe on steroids. If you decide for yourself, 40 watts is way too much, try JJ 6V6S instead of the 6L6GC in the output stage. (ONLY this JJ 6V6S can handle the 425 volts at the anode! Remember to adjust bias!!!) This will reduce the power down to 18 -20 watts without harming the amp. I made it a couple of times but I switched back to 6L6, because I am (and wanna be) pretty loud on stage. And this thing IS loud! The stock speaker is a pretty nice sounding chassis but I changed to an alnico speaker from creamsound.de. It's also an hugh improvement to go for a Celestion Creamback.
And of course, it looks beautiful, right?
BTW: comes with cover and footswitch.
Guitar->cable->amp. You'll never need anything else to have great tone on stage.

It's my "to go" amp, but...

07.05.2016
I use it for practice with the band and bigger concerts, and does the job great!

Pros:
-Great sound with a lot of headroom on the clean channel!
-Perfect for gigging
-The spring reverb in it sounds perfect to me
-Great look
-Take pedals really well

Cons:
-Heavy to transport
-The dirty channel cuts out the lower frequencies
-The stock speaker is not really the best for this amp

If you are looking for a classic Fender gigging amp with a lot of headroom and the classic spring reverb, this is the one!

I change the stock speaker with a Jensen C12N and running a external cabinet with a Jensen C15N. With the volume over 6 and driving it with a booster, blows away your mind! It really is a great "wall of sound".

The only thing that bother me is the dirty channel, with those lower frequencies disappearing.
