Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III - Red October & Eminence Red Coat Wizard Limited Edition
There are a couple new features in the Hot Rod Deluxe that are very important to me. The first one being that speaker that is standard is actually usable. They used to have some cheap speaker in there that wasn't very musical and a lot of guys would switch out the speaker for something much more sweeter in tone. The next feature is a usable gain channel two and three. Before the gain channels were so bad that I never even used them. They sounded terrible and nothing like a tube amp distortion. This custom red color is just fantastic!

SOUNDS

Now that they have a usable gain channel then this amp has much more flexibility that before. The old amps were just outright sloppy. The bad thing is that these amps are made in Mexico. So they are going to be cheaper made and will break down on you a lot quicker. I'm not sure if they fixed the jewel light from going out on this model. Everyone who owned this amp knows that the light always goes out on these things.

Anyway, use this amp with any nice guitar. I like this amp with a solid Gibson Les Paul. I used it with a Line 6 Dl4 and a Ibanez Ts9 and I had some great tones that cut through the band quite well.

OVERALL OPINION

If you are on the market for a good tube amp that has two moderate low gain but usable gain then this might be the amp for you. That is if it is the newest model. The older models had an unusable dirty channel.

I would recommend getting this amp is you need a decent clean amp that has a good tone for pedals. I gigged a lot with my amp but always ran pedals in front of it. The other two channels were pointless. If you need distortion then don't get this amp. However I would never buy this amp since its made in Mexico. For the price of this amp I would buy a used Marshall JCM2000. At new these amps come in at around $770. You can even pick up a Peavey 5150 for the price of this thing.

UTILIZATION

Easy setup, but very powerful! Sounds even at low volume and if you push it a monster!

SOUNDS

All lamps have a real Fender Reverb style warm sound but also a percussive sound, very thick Blues jazz Strokes I can do anything with! I highly recommend it if you find one because the new limited edition are much less versatile.

OVERALL OPINION

I tried full and I do chengerai for anything :)

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III - Red October & Eminence Red Coat Wizard Limited Edition
Specifications are identical to the standard model, the Hot Rod Deluxe III, with the exception of HP, which is a Eminence Red Coat Wizard 12 inches.
I love her look!

UTILIZATION

This has already been said, but I can confirm: for 40 watts, it is powerful. Eminence Red Coat The Wizard hp 12 "is really good in this configuration. No worries to be on the power and sound quality at concerts in small scenes.

I love the clean channel, but I also like the drive channel. I know that most users do not like the saturation of the channel, but I think it goes very well with od.

SOUNDS

Improvements for Version III focused on the volume and treble adjustment for easier settings (on previous versions the volume was too low and too high at 1.5 to 2). Some improvements also drive on the channel (and more drive), but it is nevertheless not a high gain amp.

I find that with the gain on the drive channel 7, you get a nice distortion sound, and even more with the drive switched on, it is still good. You can switch rhythm and solo easily, and with the clean channel, it has three options directly on the amp.

Eminence Red Coat The Wizard hp is just excellent. The clean channel is superb, typical Fender, and when the strings vibrate with intensity, he seems to have his own life ... Personality "British" is announced there!

I still can not say anything about the reliability of this amp. It was made in Mexico, some say it is a bad thing ... But I know that the reliability of previous versions is pretty good.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it only for a few days without having tried other models before. Comparisons were only possible with a Supercontrol XD.
I'm still at the stage of discovery and experimentation, I do not fully enjoy, but I am very confident for the future, and months of research that I had not been in vain . May my satisfaction last forever!
