Fender Blues Deluxe & Blues DeVille Reissues

- Press Release

In 1993, Fender® released the “Tweed” series amps to great success and acclaim. The concept: what if a great old collectable 1950s Deluxe or Bassman® was customized with channel switching and Reverb? The Blues Deluxe and Blues DeVille were launched as vintage-styled tube amps with “boutique” tone at mass-produced prices, and many pro players in the rock, country, and blues fields used them with great results.

After a few years, the Blues Deluxe and Blues DeVille were reborn as the Hot Rod Deluxe™ and Hot Rod DeVille™, when they received modified circuitry, a third “More Drive” channel, and Black/Silver cosmetic treatment. Though the Hot Rod series amps are more popular than ever today, increasing numbers of enthusiasts continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, features and look of the original versions. These “Reissue” models will be offered in addition to the Hot Rods.

The Blues Deluxe Reissue (223-2200-000) produces 40 watts into a single 12” Special Design speaker by Eminence®.

Blues Deluxe and Blues DeVille amps feature:
• Three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two 6L6 output tubes
• Normal and Drive channels, voiced for classic blues, country and rock styles
• Bright switch for Normal channel
• Fender spring Reverb
• Effects Loop
• Cloth Tweed covering, “Chicken Head” pointer knobs and chrome control panel
• Two-button footswitch (Channel/Drive-More Drive) is included.
