Fender unveiled its Tweed series amps to great success and acclaim in 1993. The concept: What if a great old, collectable, 1950's 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 what it is. A amp with great clean sound. With as Strat that chime is there. When you plug in a Les Paul and select the overdrive ( keep overdrive at 4) and crank the volume, this little box has some kool mojo..I run this with two other amps for a variety of sounds.

I bought the amp for the clean channel and look. After some use I realized the overdrive channel required some work and some of the controls required fine tuning. Changed v1 with an 12at7, replied speaker with celestion 30 and added a frommel mod kit. Worth the investment since the amp is much more usable.

Beauty of an amp. Great volume potential with a wide array of tones. Light as a feather and built like a tank. Can't say enough good about it. Great tool for the working musician that wants compact power. Has an out for an extension cab as well that I use frequently for larger rooms. A+

I bought this amp about 20 years ago when it was still being made in the US. It have been discontinued and re-issued several times since then. Overall a great warm sounding amp. Mine had a few issues when I bought it (it would switch into the overdrive channel on its own but this was fixed under warranty). Over the years I had some mods done to it including a more tapered volume and bass pot as well as a more dynamic bright switch (the original really doesn't do much). I have used the amp steadily at rehearsals and gigs. Always sounds great for the kind of music I play - mostly standards and old school rock. I am not sure it is the best amp for the heavy metal crowd but it works just great for me.

I have owned this amp for a around 4 years now. The amp is just about everything you could expect in a Fender. The tone this amp gives is amazing, good for any style of music. My only issue with this amp is that it goes from zero volume to absolutely deafening with the slightest turn of the knob, and I mean slightest, I have never played it past volume three and I feel that I am missing out on the full potential of the amp. So if you like to bleed from the ears, this one may be for you.

This is the amp I've been looking for, for years. Had a Hot Rod III and this beats it in every way. Nice tone, loud (if you want) lots of overdrive for rock. Perfect fit with my American Standard Strat.

This amp is a bit of a one trick pony. It does clean very well with lots of bottom end and plenty of headroom. Loud enough to play gigs with a drummer. It has a fuller sound than my Blues Jr, but does not break up like the jr. The overdrive channel is weak and you loose some bottom end when switching channels, as it changes tone pushing the mids. It also has the control panel reversed so you can read the controls from behind the amp. Something that they changed for the Hot Rod series. If you're looking for lots of gain, get a pedal or a different amp.

Le son de cet ampli est impeccable. Le blues Deluxe est parfait si vous cherchez un son "clean" de haute qualité. Le drive n'est pas très performant comparé au channel drive d'un Vox ou d'um Mesa. Je l'utilise pour la beauté de son son clair et j'utilise mes pédales poir les effets. Une combinaison parfaite. Pour ce prix, c'est donné!

If you are after those warm bluesy Fender Deluxe sounds of yesteryear this amp definitely delivers. Great tube amp with plenty of features and headroom at a decent price.

This amp is great. The clean sounds are great but once you start experimenting with the amp, you will get some cool sounds.
