I bought this amp this past summer and I couldn't be happier. The reverb is great on this amp. It really adds great depth to the overall sound. I have yet to crank up this 60W mammoth to the max. It is very loud, and the noise complaint I got this quarter at college is proof! If you are gonna be practicing at home you better not crank the volume past 2, this beast goes to 12. The distortion? I like it but I will be buying a distortion pedal soon, only because I just want to have have a little more crunch. The clean channel is pretty smooth, really seems to glisten. The presence knob on the amp does not really do anything. The two inputs are pretty sick if you are gonna be jamming with one of your buddies. So far so good, if you want an all tube amp with some volume and nice distortion... look no farther.

You can read all the good reviews about how good the amp is they are all true. However,do your self a favor before you leave the store get a new handle. The rubber is weak and the time you lift it in a hurry that strap is going to break ( mine did after a month). Why put a cheap handle on an expensive amp? I have less expensive amps with nice leather handles. You will thank me on this!!! either that or buy pro coverage and watch your amp break into pieces but they will give you a new amp..lol

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 III 60W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have been playing through a Blues Jr (and own and use Bugera, Ampeg, Epiphone amps) for awhile now and love the sound, but I needed something bigger with more power and an effects loop. I spent weeks reading reviews and trying to choose between the regular Deville or the Michael Landau version. I chose the regular Hot Rod Deville, because it has a clean channel and a distortion channel. There are a lot of negative comments about the drive channel on this amp and I get that because tone is a very subjective thing. One person's dream tone is another person's nightmare. But I am going to defend the drive channel here. I don't use massive distortion, running the gain at about 3-4 I get a great sound out of it. For testing purposes I cranked the drive all the way up and then engaged the "More Drive" button and had metal heaven. Again, tone is subjective and I am pretty easy to please...but this amp sounds fantastic. I also run delay, chorus, and a clean booster pedal through the effects loop and they sound great. I tested a Tube Screamer, a Boss Distortion, and a Ritchie Kotzen OMG distortion through the clean channel (ran straight in to the amp) and again, sounded phenomenal with all of them. Clear, warm, classic Fender bell-like chimey tone. You cannot go wrong with this amp. I threw caution to the wind and played a gig with it two days after I got it and rocked the bar. Had the master volume on 2! ...absolutely love it.

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 III 60W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This amp has the best clean tone that I've ever heard. When bands like the Killers, Coldplay, and The Strokes are using this very amp, you know it's going to be a good one. For the record: I'm not a huge fan of Fender amps in general: to me, most of them sound too muffled and have a wamp-y sound to them. I actually went into the store dead set on buying the Vox AC30, but then my friend recommended I try the Deville. I plugged in, and I was hooked. The bottom-end is incredible, but still maintains a bright, treble-y tone. The headroom is incredible and it is LOUD. Like to the point where if you go past 4, you need earplugs (it goes up to 12, btw). The only thing I wish I could get out of this amp is a reverb footswitch, rather than having an overdrive footswitch (I use pedals for all of my overdrive/distortion). Other than that, this amp is perfect and I couldn't ask for anything better!

    Hot Rod Deville 212

    By Scott Francis

    from San Antonio, Tx

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 III 60W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I replaced my 1977 Siverface Twin Reverb with this amp because it weighs 35 lbs less than the Twin. Too heavy for an old guy.Great tone for Country, Classic Rock, Pop and Jazz. I like the drive channels, but a Metal player would not. The reverb is standard Fender, very nice. Extremely loud amplifier. Can't set the volume above 2 for playing in the house. The 40 watt would be more than adequate, but I like big amps and could plug my 2 x 12 Vibroking cabinet into this amp for a very full, rounded sound. If this amp lasts as long as my Twin did, it will definitely outlive me. I love Fender amplifiers.

    By Richard Peninger

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 III 60W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Fender's Hot Rod DeVille 60 watt tube amp with 2x12's is a loud, bright, bassy and clean combo amp, with rich bottom dispersed around the amp by it's birch open back combo cabinet and stock Fender 12's. Because it is a combo amp (open back), Low-end(which is plentiful), disperses round the stage. To get further out front if not mic'd through the P.A. or for larger rooms, Fender recommends any of it's 8 ohm enclosures. The DeVille provides good clean support for guitar sound and effects, with generous highs, mids, and bottom end for great versatility. The over-drive channel, can be used judiciously, to get speaker sustain at lower volumes, but there are much better overdrives in other amps. DeVille has three disadvantages: 1.) It's heavy 2.) EQ switches make subtle changes unlike the later models of Fender amps 3.) Volume is fast gain, and it can easily get too loud. A speaker attenuator placed between the 8 ohm speaker output and speaker set can be used to lower volume switch gain. I subtract one star because of it's weight, and being a combo, it still needs a means of getting tone other than highs out in the room. Boss pedals and tonelabs sound great through it.

    Deville 212 III

    By Donald Sjoblom

    from Minnesota

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212 III 60W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Purchased it used at GC. I play a cover band - outdoor venues and benefits in large halls. We play some classic rock, some country, some classic metal, blues and some more recent stuff. I'm a Fender guy and this one is a great addition, easy to transport. As clean as the 70's Bassman 410, reverb sounds as good as the Twin RI, and the distortion sounds better than the Fender Distortion pedal through the 60's Super Reverb. Hooked it up to the vintage Bassman (212 Jensen) extension cab and it sounds awesome, big enough for a medium venue with volume on 5, or a large outdoor venue using the preamp line out into the PA. Pleasantly surprised at the price, a great value new or used.

    I couldn't be happier. The clean fender sound you want with a gritty distortion channel that offers diversity for whatever type of music you are playing. Plenty of power and high quality sound,
