Fender Hot Rod Blues DeVille Reissue 410 Amp : Review

Fender Hot Rod Blues DeVille Reissue 410

Features

A reissue of 60 Watts, with 4 10" Blue Alnico-Magnet Eminence speakers with two 6L6s output tubes (Fender Groove Tube GT6L6B) and three 12AX7s for the preamp. This Combo provides two channels, with common equalization section and Fender Spring Reverb.

Vintage

Input 1

For guitar.

Input 2

It provides a lower sensitivity (-6dB). It can be used with high-output instruments, providing a cleaner tone, or with lower output instruments, so to produce a darker tone. If they are used simultaneously, the sensitivity will be equivalent.

Normal/Bright

If your sound is too dark, you can use this button to add more treble. Tone will turn out more open and brilliant.

Channel 2

Drive

The distortion level.

Master

The overall volume.

Common controls

Treble, Middle, Bass

The equalization section is common. This makes settings difficult. Generally, when we switch between channels, we need a different equalization. This is not possible with the Blues DeVille 410. It's a problem.

Reverb

Like for the equalization, it is common. This means that when we set the level for the first channel and then we switch at the second, the level will be the same. Obviously, this is a great problem. Moreover, it's poor. My opinion is that it is unusable.

Presence

It works after the distortion circuitry. It adds high frequencies, but isn't so effective.

    It has the same features of the 1959 SLP but it's a 50-Watt head instead of 100. 3 ECC83 tubes for the pre and 2 EL34 for the power amp section, Send & Return and 3 band EQ.

  • Marshall
    1959 SLP

    A 100-Watt head with three ECC83 tubes for the pre and four EL34 for the power amp. Few controls but very efficient. It sounds very well and delivers a warm and pleasant tone.

    From 1981 to 1983 it has been equipped with two Rola Celestion G12-65 T3054 or T3101, while from 1984 the 4104 features two Celestion G12M-70. Pre volume and direct output.
