About This Listing

One of Fender's Most Popular Tube Combo Amps

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 a Celestion A-type speaker driven by a pair of 6L6 power tubes, the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV barks loud and proud with classic Fender tone.

Big tone from a 12" Celestion A-type speaker

With its 12" Celestion speaker driven by 40 watts of power, you'll have no trouble being heard over your drummer with the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV combo. Fender chose this speaker for its "smooth highs, laid-back midrange and full, round lows." It provides a solid sonic foundation whether you craft your tone with pedals or simply plug straight in.

Refined spring reverb

Guitarists at Sweetwater love Fender spring reverb in any incarnation — and it's especially sweet in the Hot Rod Deluxe IV. It has been tweaked to provide smoother, richer tone, even at its maximum setting. If you like lots of reverb, but prefer not to drown in it, you'll dig the Hot Rod Deluxe IV.

Articulate tone with fast response

With three 12AX7 preamp tubes and a pair of 6L6 power tubes, the Hot Rod Deluxe IV is equipped to deliver everything from shiny cleans to intense distortion. Its solid-state rectifier keeps its response fast and tight, and the redesigned preamp section maintains articulation and note definition at higher gain settings. And with your choice of low- and high-level inputs, the Hot Rod Deluxe IV is an extremely versatile amplifier for practically any guitar.

As one of the world's largest Fender dealers - with thousands of products in stock at all times - we're always getting our hands on their latest guitars, basses, and amps.
