I was thinking about getting a fender hot rod deluxe but i have some questions. I bought a spider 2 but i hated it because the effects kept on cutting out and i didn't like really like the effects. I play mostky blues rock and everything in between. If i got it i would get a ibenaz tube screamer to get some sweet crunch type sounds. I play mostly school concerts but i play a couple gigs at cafes every year.
-does it sound better then a spider?
-Is the overdrive pretty good?
- Will it be loud enough?
- should i get the 4 by 10 fender deville?

It'll sound a lot better than your Spider.

The overdrive is, well, pretty good. The tubescreamer will work very well with it, though. I prefer the Blues Deluxe to the Hot Rod, I like the cleans better and don't really like the extra gain on the HRD.

40W of tube power should really be enough for any gig. I have a 60W Fender, and don't use it much at home 'cause it's just too damn loud. So I don't think you need to go to the DeVille size at all.
