Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue Amp
The look and sound of the Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue 40W 1x12" Combo Amp say quality to the prospective buyer. If you're doing your own research on the best amp to buy, Fender's Reissue Blues Deluxe will likely impress with its vintage sound and classic style.
The Fender Blues Deluxe has the cool retro look of the Tweed style all-tube guitar amplifiers and is updated for the modern needs of modern player. It is an amplifier made for today's practical guitarist:  Easy to carry, and has everything you need built into one guitar amplifier, this makes setup at gigs as simple as plugging it in.
The Amp features a channel switching for overdrive and clean sounds. There is a dual-button footswitch to make channel switching a breeze. It comes with a standard effects loop to hook up rack-mounted and pedal effects.

All of this is complimented with two 6L6 output tubes, three 12AX7 preamp tubes, 40 watts of power and a rocking 12 inch speaker for sound output. There are other amplifiers that may have some of these same features, but they are both bulky and need setup before you can begin playing through them. For overall convenience, the Fender Reissue Blues Deluxe is unheard of. Just try to find all of these same features in an easy to carry guitar amplifier.

When it comes to sound, the Fender Blues Deluxe makes every sound come out sounding classic. The overdrive has that rock style crunch that Fender is known for world-wide. It also has a warm powerfully resonating sustain that is suited to bring out the best tones from any guitar being played through it.

It is perfect for blues, jazz, rock, or any other style of music. The unique warmth of Fender's Reissue Blues Deluxe is something that you could only get from all-tube guitar amplifiers normally. Now you can have all the great sound quality of those classic guitar amplifiers for live or studio use.

The reliability and construction of this guitar amp is one of its best-selling points. On the downside this is not an amplifier that has much in the way of high gain, but it has an amazingly clear and warm tone. Some players may consider the reverb unit to be a bit raw. Still it is more than adequate and has a deep spacious tone. Overall the pros outweigh the cons when compared to any other guitar amp of its calibre.

The Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue 40W 1x12" Combo Amp not only is a quality guitar amplifier, it leaves and impression on anyone who hears it. For the money, there is no other guitar amp that can come close to comparison.

It is economical and made for the musician who is on the road. It has the solid performance, quality sound, and stylish looks of the classic Fender Twin amps but made for today's guitarist. When buying a guitar amplifier for live, studio or home use it is absolutely worth the money.  Because Fender's Reissue Blue Deluxe is not just another amp for playing music, it is a tool for creating art.  Nobody, afterall, knows guitar amplifiers like Fender.

Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue 40W 1x12" Combo Amp

The Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue 40W 1x12" Combo Amp rocks—and not just for the blues! In 1993 Fender released the Blues series amps to great success and acclaim. These modern versions of vintage Fender amps from the '50s customized those designs with channel switching and reverb while retaining the vintage style and tone. When the series was updated, the extremely popular Hot Rod series was born and became a new standard in tube amplification. Now Fender has brought back the Blues designs to satisfy the increasing number of enthusiasts who continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, and vintage-style features and look of the original versions.

The Blues Deluxe Reissue, a reinterpretation of the classic Deluxe amp with a tube complement of 3 - 12AX7s and 2 - 6L6s produces 40W into a 12" Eminence special-design speaker with an all-tube preamp and power amp. It has Normal and Drive channels with independent Gain and Master for the Drive channel and a Bright switch for Normal channel. It also has an effects loop, reverb, presence, master volume, 3-band EQ, and Standby switch. Original Blues series styling includes a chrome control panel, vintage chicken head knobs, and, of course, genuine tweed covering.
