Hey all,

I play on a Gibson Les Paul 2008 Standard, Tradition G12 Standard (decent strat knock off). I play a little classic rock, some hard rock (like GNR+Ozzy), but I play a lot of blues (SRV), so need a good blues tone.

I went to GC (don't ridicule me) and tried the Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue 40W 1x12" Combo Amp , but I didn't have my guitar. I liked it (alot more than the Marshall Haze40) because it had a nice warm sound but also had some grit to it on the other channel.

So I am asking to anyone that has used or heard this amp if it is a good choice for my styles and will be able to have enough OD for some harder rock. I know it will be good for blues (obviously) but would like my OD question answered.

:cheers

The overdrive channel is utter unuseable shite, and I only use it to vary the sound of my walls of feedback or as a boost into feedback territory...It can do light bluesy overdrive, but anything more you'll need a good OD Pedal. It doesn't even reach SRV overdrive tones I'm afraid. So you'll probably want a TS style pedal and/or a Marshall Voiced overdrive pedal like the Rothwell Hellbender.

Yeah that's a great clean amp, so a tubescreamer(what SRV used) would deffinately put you in the classic rock/blues territory.

It's the new low cost tube amps from Marshall, I think it just got out this week so you might have hard time finding it.

Ok, I didn't know it was that new. I actually just found stuff about Marshall's Website.

Pertty good clean/light overdrive, but from what you've described I'd be looking for a british(Marshall)-voiced amp.


Depends what kind of 'blues' you play, really. Broadly speaking:

American voicing: SRV, BB King, Derek Trucks etc

British voicing: Clapton, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, Slash etc


You alright buying secondhand gear or does it have to be brand new?
A used Mesa F-50 would work pretty well if you're into the American blues sound but still want great rock overdrive. You could easily find one for $700ish, and the quality is much higher than the Fender.
