A few months ago I ordered a used Fender Hot Rod Deluxe from Musicians Friend. After almost 60 days it finally got here, and I was pretty pumped about it. (I'm living in Japan at the moment so that's why it took so long). This is actually my second HRD, I have another one back in the States.

I plugged it in, and was putting it through its paces, and I noticed that there is a huge volume difference between the Clean and the Drive/More Drive channels. The clean channel is considerably louder then the the drive channels. I don't remember noticing this with the one back in the states, and it could have been caused by running it at such a low volume, but I was curious if there was an easy way to fix that? I like being able to switch between the two mid-song without blowing the audience away.

yup that's how the hrd is.
you need to replace the volume pot with a linear pot.
you've been victim of fender's make it sound best for guitar center marketing policy.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

Alright, thanks. It's not a big deal I guess. It's just a pain getting stuff sent out here.
