When I was working with many of the best bands in NYC I couldn't help but notice that everyone had one of these normal sized black Fender combos. Theses were bands from The Strokes to Coldplay and they weren't sporting around Marshall stacks or $3000 boutique amps. They were playing to tens of thousands through and $800 amp and taking their tone to another level. Fender has now gone and put even more tone in the the most recorded and toured modern amplifier designs in history. The Hot Rod sounds wonderful on its own but what it does amazingly well is take pedals fantastically!
The modified preamp circuitry offers greater tonal definition and clarity, even when pushing the amp into overdrive, so your tone remains articulate no matter how hard you push it.
This amp’s modified spring reverb offers the same luscious ambient sound you know and love, but with improved smoothness to dial in your sound at any volume.
Hailing from the U.K., Celestion speakers are acclaimed worldwide for their distinctly rock ‘n’ roll flavor, with a more modern sound and utterly classic roar when pushed.
The Hot Rod Deluxe IV features the classic Fender look of sparkling silver grille cloth, lightly aged to give it even more mojo.

In a nod to our illustrious past, we added ivory pointer knobs, an original-era design element.
