i want a tube amp
i found a fender hot rod deville 212 for about $700
and a fender blues for around $800

ive read that theyre both really good amps, and ive played on my friends blues, but im not familiar with the hot rod
how is it?

i love my hot rod. click my profile to hear it in action.
try it out if you can. lots of people prefer the blues to the hot rod, i like the hot rod. you cant go wrong with either. unless you want lots of dirt.

meh. dont get deville. it has less gain than a standard hot rod. actually depends on music style. seems like you play blues and those are good amps for it. i'd prefer a hot rod deluxe over those
BTW, you can get a used hotrod for under 400 bucks. near mint condition. trust me you will regret if you buy new.

which blues model is it?
If it's the deville, i'd go for the blues series.
A bit better all around than the hotrod.

the blues is a deluxe
the hot rod is the deville

i play clapton blues and 60's/70's rock
i liked the blues, but i guess ill have to play a hot rod before i can really decide
