Fender Blues Deluxe 40-watt 1x12" Tube Combo Amp - Tweed
In Stock!

Take a Walk on the Blues Side with This Amp!

Here's a great throwback to a bluesier time - the Fender Reissue Blues Deluxe! If you loved the Hot Rod Deluxe but wanted a little bluesier warmth to your tone, this amp is for you. The Blues Deluxe Reissue is an update of the 1993 Fender Tweed series that took a great old collectable 1950s Deluxe and customized it with channel switching and reverb. The Tweed Blues Deluxe is a vintage-styled tube amp with boutique tone at mass-produced prices, and pro players in rock, country, and blues will get great results from this reissue!

Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue Guitar Amp at a Glance:
  • The advantages of a Hot Rod Deluxe with a warmer tone
  • Two channels, both voiced for classic sounds
  • 40 watts through a special design Eminence speaker
  • Classic tweed with vintage-style knobs and controls

The advantages of a Hot Rod Deluxe with a warmer tone
Fender transformed the Blues Deluxe amp into the Hot Rod Deluxe in the mid-1990s and gave it modified circuitry, a third "More Drive" channel, and a black/silver cosmetic treatment. Though the Hot Rod series amps are more popular than ever today, increasing numbers of guitar players continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, features, and look of the original Blues Deluxe version. The Reissue Blues Deluxe marks a return to that amplifier's tone and appeal.

Two channels, both voiced for classic sounds
The 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 distortion. Independent gain and master controls in the drive channel give you lots of tone and level options.

40 watts through a special design Eminence speaker
The Fender Blues Deluxe screams "tube" all the way! Its 40-watt amp is driven by two 6L6 output tubes for about the most authentic tone you can imagine. Power goes to a special design Eminence 12" speaker that sounds great low or cranked. The Blues Deluxe is a natural for the stage in clubs or miked in large rooms. Plus, you'll love the Blues Deluxe's signature sound in the studio.

Classic tweed with vintage-style knobs and controls
Fender does reissues right, and the Blues Deluxe is proof! Its cloth tweed covering will take you back, as will the vintage-style chicken head knobs and classic-looking chrome control panel. The Fender Blues Deluxe is an amp you'll love to own, love to play, and love to show off!

Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue

Fender makes great amps! Had a vintage Fender Deluxe for years. This Blues Deluxe has an amazing tone. Perfect, crystal clear cleans to gritty overdrive and man is it ever loud if you need it. Sounds amazing with quality pedals. Sweetwater is the best. I have been serviced by my rep Matt Masek for nearly a decade and he is truly the best! Thanks Sweetwater! :)

Great amp!

I got one of these guys second hand and had a local amp guru replace the caps and pots and man, this bad boy is great! I've used it for recording and in rooms of all sizes. I've had a Pro, Jr. III for years and love it and man the Blues Deluxe Reissue has that warm sweet tone my Telecasters were designed to produce.

I Need The Tweed

Wanted the tone of a vintage Fender tweed amp, like the Twin Amp, or the '57 and such. But those guys cost like large chunks o' change. This amp is priced fairly right, looks perfect, has great appointments, is almost all "toob" and has the powuh to roll yer eyeballs if needed, and it's got the . . . "tone." I love this amp! It's clean channel is so clean you want to record every sound for posterity. True vintage Fender vibe. When distortion and such is required, just add your favorite pedal in the effects loop and away you go. The covering is very well done too. No sloppy workmanship here.

Blues Avenue

What a GREAT amp. Had a few years now, still amazes me every time I plug one of my many electrics into it. You can play anything your hearts desire through this amazing amplifier. Not only Blues, but great for Country, Jazz, Rock, and probably about any other genre of music can be played through this beast. Great for practice, small to medium venues, studio work. This amp really fits the bill when it comes to looks, quality, and performance. Can't go wrong with a Fender backing you up. I would highly recommend this amplifier, you won't regret buying it.

All around working man,s amp!

Has the sweet round sound you look to for all sorts of playing different rooms and strange and sometimes welcomed acoustic properties.Changed the master volume linear potentiometer to an audio type. I did not change the speaker as it only needs to (weather) or break in, which it is doing. Every weekend play date it sounds better and better. I will be installing a cooling fan and definitly receive twice the life from the valve components as well as the output and power transformers. My next grab will be a 59 Bassman reissue but this rig will probably outshine in sweetness-but I,ll let you-all know, one way or the other. Jam on people.

What a great amp! This little tone monster is ideal for everything from solo playing to small venue gigs. The clean channel has all the sparkle, spank, and bouncy lows that you'd expect from a Fender... instant SRV tone for a surprisingly affordable price!
