Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue vs Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III

Fender Blues Deluxe Amplifier vs Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III

In this video below I compare the Fender Blues Deluxe tweed amplifier and the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III amplifier.  Both are fitted with 6L6 Power Tubes and 12Ax7 Preamp tubes and come in pretty much the same size cabinet.  This comparison between the amps should help you decide which one you like more for your style of much, both are fantastic.

My personal choice doesn’t much matter as both amps are very similar and very usable.  Look at it this way, if you like the smoother and modern clean channel sounds go for the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III.  If you’re into Tweed and slightly edgy sounds the Blues Deluxe Reissue is the way to go.  Either is fine for many styles of music and they both take pedals very well.

(4.5 / 5)
Overall, both amps are awesome which is why they get a solid 4.5/5 star rating.  My reasoning for the score is, they have two good channels (even though the clean is better then the drive channel), they take pedals well, they aren’t too heavy and they are a decent price for what you get.
