Hello,

I've had my Hot Rod Deluxe for about 6 months now, I like it a lot. I'm trying to take full advantage of what the 40w tube amp can provide and want a bigger...better sound. Is the fender hot rod cabinet (1x12 celestion) with a closed back going to help me out here? Has anyone had any experience with adding a cabinet to their hot rod amp? I have the Texas Red and want to get a cabinet while the tolex is still available to match.

Thanks in advance,

Dylan

blackheart? I'm familiar with the term blackface....

it's a different amp - he's just saying you could use the cab with a 5 watter called a Blackheart Little Giant - when you weren't using it with the Hot Rod.

the best thing you can do for a HRD is replace the stock speaker with something good like a Celestion Vintage 30.

adding a cab will give you a fuller sound though.

I disagree.

A Vintage 30 does not suit a Fender amp. I have yet to hear anything sound good out of a vintage 30 outside of high gain metal tones.
