Fender Product Overview
Fender unveiled its "Tweed" series amps to great success and acclaim in 1993. The concept: What if a great old collectable 1950s Deluxe or Bassman was customized with channel switching and reverb? Behold the Reissue Blues Deluxe-a vintage-style tube amp with "boutique" tone at a great price that many a pro rock, country and blues player has used to superb effect.
While its newer cousin, the Hot Rod Deluxe, has many modern refinements, more and more enthusiasts continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, classic features and sharp look of the original version. Accordingly, the Reissue Blues Deluxe sends 40 watts of juice into a single 12" Special Design Eminence speaker, fueled by two 6L6 output tubes and three 12AX7 preamp tubes.
Its two channels, "normal" (with bright switch) and "drive," are voiced for classic blues, country and rock; other features include Fender spring reverb, an effects loop and two-button channel footswitch. The great look includes tweed covering, "chicken head" pointer knobs and a chrome control panel.

This amp is a gigging amp and NOT home practice. After demo's in several stores I was able to buy online in confidence. It's SO loud but retains the ability to accommodate touch sensitive players subtlety and if needed to not break-up and getting gritty. Love the sound and 'pedal' potential from a rather large (for me) investment. Provided in excellent condition exactly as described!
great Amp cheers ..............................................................................................
Fender Blues Deluxe is my first Fender amp. I am really happy with the clear chanel. I am blues and rock player. I can recommend this amp for blues, pop, country and rock players. If you play metal ??? You need direction pedals. Reverb sound is fantastic. I tried blues deluxe vs hot rod and I chooses blues deluxe. Sounds great. Is only 40 watts but is really loud ...I also have a Marshall amp 60 watts but blues deluxe is louder
