Fender releases the new Hot Rod III series amplifiers, featuring several upgrades based on player feedback – including improved speakers, enhanced circuits and revised cosmetic appointments – making the world’s most popular tube amps even better. Notorious for their affordability, reliability and ability to cut through onstage, the new Hot Rod III series includes the Hot Rod Deville 410 III, Hot Rod Deville 212 III, Hot Rod Deluxe, Blues Junior III and Pro Junior III amps.All Hot Rod III series amps include easier-to-read black control panels, new badges, “dog bone” handles, heavy-duty chicken-head knobs and LED jewel lights. Additionally, the Hot Rod DeVille and Deluxe amps feature graduated volume and treble pot tapers, and include new low-profile “pedalboard friendly” footswitches.The Hot Rod DeVille 410 III is a 60-watt combo with a classic 4x10" speaker configuration borrowed from the legendary Super Reverb and ’59 Bassman amps, offering the low-end headroom characteristic of 6L6 tubes, a versatile all-12AX7 tube preamp and an effects loop. It produces amazing clean and overdriven tones and luscious spring reverb, and is able to power an additional speaker cabinet thanks to its 8-ohm extension speaker output. The Hot Rod DeVille 212 III shares the same circuit, output and features as its 410 counterpart, with the exception of its classic 2x12" speaker configuration borrowed from the legendary Twin Reverb amp, courtesy of two 12" Celestion G12P-80 speakers. The ever-popular Hot Rod Deluxe is a 40-watt single 12" combo—the standard for gigging guitarists worldwide—and features a 12” Celestion G12P-80 speaker and new “tighter” overdrive circuit. Players wanting to add a little more output, fullness and stage coverage can add a matching 112 extension enclosure.The Blues Junior III is a 15-watt warm-toned, longtime favorite—the perfect grab-and-go tube amp for stage and studio. It is known for the fat mid tones characteristic of EL-84 output tubes, warm 12AX7 preamp tube overdrive, real spring reverb, simple control layout, footswitchable FAT boost, external speaker capability, and is powered by a highly-sensitive Fender Special Design 12" “lightning bolt” speaker by Eminence. It now includes front-reading text on the control panel and new “sparkle” circuit mod, and rattle-reducing shock absorbers for the EL-84 tubes.The Pro Junior III is a simple, uncluttered 15-watt tone machine and delivers the fat mid tones characteristic of EL-84 output tubes, driven by a dual-12AX7 tube preamp and a 10” Fender Special Design speaker with vintage cone. Additional features include unique clean-to-drive volume control, lower-noise shielding, rattle-reducing shock absorbers for the EL-84 output tubes and external speaker capability.For more information, go to www.fender.com.
