About Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV 40-Watt 1 x 12″ Tube Combo Amp:

40-watt, 3-channel, All-tube 1×12″ Guitar Combo Amplifier with Celestion A-type Speaker, Spring Reverb, and Effects Loop


Fender took feedback from guitar players to the drawing board to create the Hot Rod Deluxe IV tube combo amplifier. Its updated preamp circuitry delivers greater note definition and articulation when overdriven. And you’ll find the onboard spring reverb to sound smoother and sweeter than previous editions, even at extreme settings. The Hot Rod Deluxe IV has also received a cosmetic refresh, including ivory-colored knobs over a black control panel which makes it easy to see your settings on a dark stage. And with dual Celestion A-type speakers driven by a pair of 6L6 power tubes, the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV barks loud and proud with classic Fender tone.
