Same price, same wattage.
What are the advantages of one over the other?
And which one would suit an Alt. Rock to Blues, Incubus to the Chili Peppers to John Mayer kinda sound?

well, i was in your situation, and play similar stuff to you, i prefered the blues deluxe tone by far. plus it is tweed!
#5
they're both awesome amps, but i'd go with a hot rod deluxe. unless you're really dying for tweed

I have an Hot Rod and it's decent, but in retrospect, I should've bought the Blues Deluxe (at the time, the Hot Rod was cheaper by $150.)

Between the two, I'd probably get a Blues Deluxe.

But I'd also check out a Peavey Classic 30.
Seriously, check one out. The overdrive is much more usable than the Fender's. The cleans are still better on the Fender, but man. The Classic sounds just lovely.

The only real "advantage" of the Hot Rod is the "more gain" function, which is really rather unusable. The Blues has a little nicer sound, IMHO. The two amps are nearly identical, but I think the slightly less circuitry makes for a slightly nicer sound for the BD.

Or it could just be my imagination.

Nah...

For the artists the TS is interested in, he's better off with a Fender. The only Peavey I'd consider would be the Delta Blues.

Seconded. Especially the John Mayer-ish tones. Don't forget the Formar, though... sigh.

IMO, i prefered the Hot Rod, i found the cleans on the blues were too thin and fendery for me, dist was nicer though, a nice twangy crunch. The HRD just sounded warmer and richer.
#16
I m gonna e buying one of these two next month...
dunno which one....
could i get a more hard rock sound if i bought the blues deluxe with an overdrive pedal..
thx

Blues Deluxe. I played one for a good hour at my guitar shop the other week, I was in heaven. Also, the tweed kicks ass.
