well today i went to guitar center to try out the hot rod and blues deluxe side by side. the blues deluxe didn't sound full enough on the clean channel to me, but the hot rod's was nice and warm. i like the drive ok, but i plan on getting a tube screamer or fuzz face soon. the amp breaks up at about 4 and i really like how my dynamics come through. i'm happy with my purchase and i'd like to thank everyone who gave me advice.

Thank you!

Excellent, and well done for going and playing the amps yourself and not just buying blind!

hey thats awesome. i love mine. useing a Tubescreamer really makes the amp sing. it tightens up the drive channel nicely. great choice.

Yeah, i might get that one or the peavey delta blues.
Anyone that's going to think about getting either the blues or the hot rod, remember: They are the same amp, but the hot rod has an "extra" drive channel. Plus, the blues' panel is inversed, which makes it a hassle to use.
The hot-rod is an amazing amp, and you're one lucky bastard!

we have the same amp! *high 5*


I'll be waiting for those clips..and I'm currently thinking of buying an overdrive pedal or something..so..clips?

No. Everybody dies. And one day, given that your relationship doesn't crash and burn like so many do, one of you will end up deep in sorrow while watching the other one die.

Umm.....that was me, I really have to change my avatar.

Yeah, it's the main reason I'm not getting one, especially when you can get the same on with more drive and a non-inversed panel for the same price.
#13
what do you mean "inversed" panel controls.
and there not really the same amp with an extra drive channel, you can hear differences in them.

you have to be behind that amp to use the panel.

Plus, ive tried em, they sound almost the same. They use the same components, tubes, speakers, etc.

what i remember of the trying out the amp, the control panel was located on the same spot on both the HRD and the blues deluxe. maybe they changed it since then.

One person probably only wants them so he can have an excuse to talk about how TOTALLY AWESOME his amp is. Again.

Awesome amp I love mine!! Unfortunately it's been in the shop for the past month being repaired. Cleans are simply eye-watering (in a good way) it's too bad the drive channel is so weak though, but i'm over it. I remember what a good day it was when I got mine congrats!!!
