It is not without reason that the Fender amps of the tweed era (named after the amp’s fabric cover) have such a great reputation as the ideal amplifiers for blues and rock ‘n’ roll. On the one hand, they deliver crisp cleans at a moderate volume, which is often hard to find. On the other hand, turning up the volume releases a soft, creamy distortion – lying across the fine line between clean and crunch – that is simply unrivalled.
The Reissue Blues Deluxe offers two channels, one of which is predestined for the clean department, while the other can be made to sing at a civil volume by adjusting the master volume. Practically all good sounds between Bassman and Deluxe can be produced. With the Eminence 12″ speaker, the amp has enough power to fill small clubs with plenty of sound. The name says it all: The Blues Deluxe is an outstanding amp (not only, but especially) for blues and all other styles where warm, harmonically distorted sounds are desired.
