This Fender Blues Deluxe reissue offers two channels that are perfect for classic blues, country, and rock styles. The vintage channel serves up a great blend of cleans plus a bright switch for lead playing. The Blues Deluxe’s drive channel pushes the 12AX7 preamp tubes harder and offers just the right amount of crunch or distortion depending on your wishes. Independent gain and master controls in the drive channel give you lots of tone and level options.
This amp is in excellent shape. It has been used professionally for over 10 years, but really well looked after. It is a classic straight up Fender amp with all that sparkly clean shimmer up top, a punchy midrange and ballsy bottom end. It is a great platform for effects of all kinds, and features a very useable crunch / dirty channel.
Comes with its Fender vinyl cover, owner’s manual and included footswitch.
