jst wondering how come they are so much cheaper than the twin reverbs? anyone tried the hotrods? how are they?
and does the number of speakers and size matter that much (to the extent of a few hundred $$s?), wiht the 2x12 4x10 and 1x12??

i have the fender hot rod deville 212 and i love it. i am a bit of a audiophile but find this amp amazing, espesially for the price. obviously, there are better amps out there, and yes, the more expensive fender amps will most likely be better, but this is deffinatly more than you pay for, espesically with good tubes. the distortions are decent, so depending what type of music you play, you'll want a good distortion pedal. the clean channel is very ...clean and ... well wicked good. the gain channel is nice; i usually use that channel with just a little but of gain to add a bit more grit. the "more drive" channel probably isnt something you'd want to use all the time, but if you buy the footswitch, it makes a decent boost. i have heard a lot of people say great things about these amps and i would agree. generally, the only bad comments yuu hear will be from people who dont know how to EQ an amp well. it may take a bit of tweakinging, but once you get it, it's a f*ckin great amp.

the one with the single 12'' speaker is different than the others. that one is the hotrod deluxe and is only 40watts. the 212 and 410 are 60 watts (they are plenty loud) im not positive but from what i have played, and my limited knowledge about speakers, i would say that the 212 has more bass, and probably better tone. the 410 may be louder.(however the 212 is plenty loud) im not positive though (plus, whats "better" tone for me may not be "better" for you) i would suggest trying them both out if you can, but my personal opinion would be the 212.

i think the 4x10 is tighter..in the mids..that why i love it...the 2x12 is more well rounded..but bassier i suppose...1x12 does the job...

Different amps will only tolerate so much before they get muddy.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

You'll know it when you hear it. An amp with a "tight" low end has very clear and pronounced bass. "muddy" low end sounds very loose and all around bad.

I have the 112, and it sounds really good. It would certainly be adequate for playing gigs that have a PA system. I havent played the 212 or 410 much, but I didnt hear too much of a difference. If the tone varies between the amps I dont think there terribly different, seeing as they use the same components. Id say the 112 is a fine decision, especially if you dont feel the need to shell out even more money for another speaker.

One thing to be aware of : Be careful with the inputs. The jacks are nylon, not metal, and can break if you yank a cord too hard. I bought mine used, and recently had to have the footswitch jack replaced. An easy solution is to wrap the cords around the amps handle first, that way if you step on the chord or walk too far from the amp the chord will tighten around the handle instead of pulling out and possible screwing up the jacks. It cost me 60 bucks, but whatever. Its not a big enough reason to not purchase such a great amp, just dont play tug of war with it.

As far as bass response goes on the 1x12, these are bassy amps to begin with...you won't have a problem.

The jacks are a little weak, but I haven't had any problems with mine. Just keep a lookout and check the nuts to make sure they're tight every now and again.
