  • Blues deluxe??

    I got an offer in a trade or my peavey.

    I was considering the hot rod deluxe but hadn't considered a blues deluxe.

    Tell me what's up.

    I bought one in 93 I think. Still have it. Nice sounding amp for warm cleans.

        I have a 410 Blues Deville, and my housemate has a 112 HRD in Tweed. They sound practically identical to me.

        I figure the Blues Deluxe would be the same and only offer one gain stage, and foot-switchable reverb. That's what sold me on the Blues Deville. Although the Spring Reverb isn't as deep as most other Fenders i've tried.

          I've never been a big fan of the Hot Rod Deluxe, the Blues Deluxe is nice, try before you buy.

            Oh yeah I remember the blues deluxe having ****************ty reverb.

            But I have ample pedal reverb so I'm set.

              The Blues Deluxe is a good amp for cleans IMO. Definitely worth considering, depending on which Peavey you're going to be trading for it.

                Blues Deluxe is solid. Not a small or quiet amp though. The one issue I had with mine is the quick volume jump, from 0-1 quieter, 2-3 loud, 4-10 more loud. So maybe you can adjust the volume taper. I had a small volume pot pedal in the effects loop to sort of work as an auxillary volume control which helped some. I didn't like the dirt tone that much, but the cleans are nice, and it takes pedals well.

                  it's a nice amp if you're not set on using amp distortion.

                    That seems standard with Fender HRD's, and the Blues models. I remember hearing that it's because the volume pot isn't linear, or something along those lines. But i don't really know. I'd definitely prefer it had a smoother increase.

                    The reverb though isn't ****************ty. Still sounds great! Just not as extreme. I wasn't too fussed by that either. I use the amps reverb for more basic sounds, and if i want crazy, super-splashy spring reverb i just use my Spring Theory.

                      I don't use amp distortion persay, I boost the **************** out of it and use overdrive.

                      It's smaller than my 4x10 classic 50. And lighter.

                        They all can definitely benefit greatly from a proper linear volume pot. And with all of those I think it's pretty easy to swap out for a larger/better reverb tank if you don't like the stock. Personally I'd just go all out and find a good deal on a Silverface Twin if you want cleans and killer reverb. Just get a backbrace if you plan on gigging with it.

                          I think he is trying to retire his backbrace by flipping his 410 Classic 50 for a lighter amp.

                            Eh, go big or go home.

                            But yeah, if that's the case a Twin ain't the answer. I guess for me having lugged around a Twin and a HRD the Twin was worth the extra weight. Too bad there isn't a lighter 1x12 version of the twin. Maybe there is, I just haven't found it yet.

                              Actually, and I know he has a trade offer, but if you're looking to downsize why not a Classic 30? Or are you wanting to get away from EL-84s?
