I was just randomly browsing through the musical instruments on my local craigslist when this caught my eye. Now I was hoping to get an Orange AD or Rocker in June or so, but I saw this Fender Hotrod. Is it a good deal, and is it good for my playing style? I play some blues, a lot of rock, and mainly a combination of the two. Mainly stuff like the Parlor Mob and Wolfmother (hence the strong desire for some juicy Orange tone.) But, I don't know much about Fender amps besides their cleans. So GC&A'ers: should I look at buying this?

Thanks for the help!

Well, the overdrive wouldn't be too much like Wolfmother unless you used a pedal...would you be?

beware, those things are extremely loud so if youre just playing in your bedroom you will probably need an attenuator lol

I have a big muff but it sounds nothing like what I want to play except for the White Stripes. So I was hoping to get an amp with the natural overdrive similar to Wolfmother and The Parlor Mob's sound.

And to the guy with the Traynor url: Would they work for me?

Yeah if/when I get a good tube amp I'll have to attenuate. I don't plan on getting a gigging and a practicing amp

Yes, it's voiced similar to the HRD but has a decent gain channel. Very good cleans.

+1.. I have the 40 watt Hot Rod and I think I'd be evicted if I put the volume past 2
