Searching for a replacement amp (previous amp - different brand - too much background hiss). I spent time researching what I wanted and then visited a number of stores to see and hear these models.

Right from the start I liked the sound of the Hotrod deluxe but waited until I was sure about buying.

Paid $2000(AUS) at my local store where I buy a lot of gear. Which was a good price by standards here in Perth.

Beautiful sound. Clear and sparkling on 'normal' channel. But can add plenty of overdrive using second channel or 'more drive' selector. And I use Boss effects to create as much embellishment as I like.

Reverb and presence knobs work well.

Some reviewers have complained about sensitivity of the volume controls, but I don't agree.There seems to be fairly smooth increases in volume as the knobs are rotated. The only thing I notice is that the amp can get very loud indeed for its rated power.

Nothing so far.

Solidly built. Best looking amp.

Great having the controls on top.

No problems with reliability so far.

Excellent clear sound. Beautifully quiet unless you strike a note (no background hiss). No hesitation recommending this quality product.

And if the resulting beauty goes some way towards calming ill will in the world then that is a good thing.
