First off, could I run a Randall RH100 as the Pre-Amp for my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe? I know about slaving into the FX loop but just wondering if it's possible with that amp.
Secondly, will the tube power section of my Fender give the Randall some tube tone?

I'm a little confused, but since the Randall is 100 watts and the Fender is 40, you could run into issues. IMO, the sound will be OK at best, definitely not as good as the Fender on it's own.

What are you trying to accomplish?

i think it will sond better on its own

but if you want to do this you would need to take the effects loop out from the randall into the effects loop in on the fender assuming they have one
not sure if you can go into the front end of the amp

Not if he slaves the poweramp of the fender by running the PREAMP of the randall. Which is what he's asking.

Yes, you can, and no, it probably won't give you much of a difference until you put it at around 5. Emphasis on "probably," though, since I've never tried it and may or may not be talking out my ass. Please report back if you try it, I'm curious now.

In a nutshell, yes if you crank it. Since you have that head I'm assuming you play metal, which is primarily preamp distortion vs power amp distortion. So it's not going to give quite the tone you're looking for. Definitely try it out though, you're the only judge that matters when it comes to your setup.
