"TURN IT DOWN!!!"---Moms everywhere.
This is my main gigging amp now as I had to sell my beloved Tone Master Deluxe Reverb & Blues Junior.
It’s a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV I got for a very good price a few months ago. Under a year old too! Sounds amazing!!
I’ve always loved these Hot Rod amps by Fender… I’ve had a couple of DeVilles over the years..
Crikey, I'm not alone in multi-amp madness, whew! Some of these I'm moving on, but here's the current lineup:
'62 Fender Bassman
(L-R) Allen Encore head, '95(?) Fender "Custom" Vibrolux Reverb, '62 Fender Bassman with '64 Fender Reverb Unit, '63 Fender Showman, Fender Princeton Reverb Limited Edition Reissue, '94 Fender Vibro-King...
Fender Pawn Shop Excelsior Pro, Vox AC15C1-TV, Fender Pawn Shop Vaporizer...
'64 Fender Princeton, Fender '59 Reissue LTD Bassman...
Fender Tone Master Twin Reverb (with some Brownface aesthetic mods - cupcake knobs, flat Fender logo)
Fender Super Bassman head / Fender Rumble 4x10 1000 watt bass cab (I have a Fender Rumble 500 bass head somewhere...)
Hot Rods are one of my fav Fender amps - prefer them over Delux Reverb or Twin
I got some to share....
Latest DSL, Vox valvetronix, old Peavey, a 65w hybrid Chinese head n cab I been using for over 10years and a local made bass amp

Your petal collection looks like the display case at Guitar Center!
Yes I’ve always loved the Hot Rod series.
This one sounds awesome in a live band situation, really cuts through!
They sure did!
This is all I got.
Front Row, L-R: Fender BF Champ, Kalamazoo Model One
Back Row, Top, L-R: Fender EC Tremolux, Fender '63 Reverb (RI), Carl's Custom Amps 5E3 chassis in TV tweed cabinet with Celestion Alnico Blue 12".
Back Row, Bottom, L-R: 1950s Valco Sportsman (obscured by BF Champ), 1993 USA Made Blues DeLuxe (obscured by the Model One), 1950s (?) Wilcox-Gay Recordio
Mesa Express 550+, Marshall AS50D (acoustic), Katana 100 head, Hotone Mojo Diamond.
Express 5:50+ was the 1st Mesa amp I owned - an under-rated gem imo
I couldn't agree more. My main amp for 12 years was a Twin. It took the 550 to get me to finally let go of it and I'm still as happy as I ever was.
I’ve NEVER seen anywhere near that many pedals at my local GC!
Here's a couple more...
Those amps are no doubt feeling threatened, as they are so outnumbered by the pedals!
"Show me some amps," ye say?
Here's the lot, as of ~1.5 year ago:
Back (l-r): Crate BX 200/Ampeg SVT (200W 8x10), '67 Fender Super Reverb (40W 4x10, dual cabbed), '69 Kustom 100 (100W 1x15), Top: Marshall 5213 (100W 2x12) Bottom: Ampeg Reverberocket 212R (50W 2x12), Top: '60s Sunn 200s (40W) Bottom: DIY 2x12 Celestion cab; '70s Woodson 250 (250W 1x15), Top: Cigarbox Homebuilt (0.5 W) Middle: Sovtek MiG 50H Tube Midget (50W) Bottom: Risson cab (4x12).
Front (l-r): Kustom Tube 12A (1x8), Marshall 5275 (75W 1x12), Peavey Triple XXX Super 40EXP (40W 1x12), Vox AD30VT-XL (30W 1x12), Marshall 5210 (50W 1x12), MosValve MV-962 (80W 1x12), Laney TF100 (50w 1x10), Marshall 5002 (20W 1x10), Fender Super Champ XD (15W 1x10).
Since it's been 18 months, there are a few changes from above. The big Marshall 5213 (100W 2x12 combo, center, top, back row) was sold, and replaced by a DSL 40C (with a Celestion G12H 75 Creamback speaker change). Here is the DSL 40C with the Ampeg R212R Reverberocket (50W 2x12):
After acquiring the DSL, I also got a Vox AC30.
And just today I got my first-ever Marshall cab, a model 1510. It's a flat-front bass cab with four 10" speakers, but works great for bass or guitar!
