    I sold my Fender Hot Rod DeVille iii 410 about 19 months ago in a quest to find a lighter to carry gigging amp.

    I’ve currently been using a Tweed Blues Junior live which i love.
    But I’ve really been missing that awesome headroom you get with the 410 Hot Rod.
    So today i picked up another one identical to my old one for a fantastic price on eBay.
    This amp is so clean it looks brand new.
    The owner said he bought it on impulse a few years ago but never really used it. Carried on using his Fender Twin.
    So this Hot Rod DeVille is like new!
    I’ve bought a small trolly/barrow also to save my back & shoulder ;) 42152AA9-0A2F-47CC-AFBD-AA65FF2EAE73.jpeg

    I used to lug a Twin around...hated it but it sounded great with my Strat on clean channel.

    While reading your post I was thinking exactly this (I have a similar one). Then I smiled when I got to the end of your post.

    Enjoy the new amp, and the new groupie! :D

    Congrats!
    I had that very same amp for a few years. Treated me well even though I treated her hard! It’s definitely heavy, and definitely LOUD!
    Hand truck or anything with wheels is a smart idea!

    The smallest rig I ever used was/is my Reu-o-Grande top combined with a Boogie 2x12 wedge.
    I bet my Boogie box alone is heavier than your setup.
    Certain gigs/kinds of music call for bigger weapons and you`re not playing coffee-jazz, Nigel.
    Although the "3 full-stacks-onstage-times" seem to be over for me a little Fender Champ will never do the job.
