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.

    My opinion, but it's my opinion, is that the only good thing is the clean. It is, certainly, more expensive of how much it is worth. A button to add Gain, called More Drive.
