IF you can get the thing to fail while out of the case, the quickest way to find a thermal failure is with circuit cooler spray. Unless you are adept at electronics, this is probably NOT a DIY project.

The nature of your symptoms SUGGEST probably a bad solder joint or a cracked circuit board.

OFTEN the bad solder is around HEAVY components or POTENTIOMETER leads, especially where they support the board by those leads (dumb!)

A trained eye can spot bad soldering around a lead... you look for a tiny gray line around the lead part way up the meniscus of the solder fillet... see one, reheat the joint with a soldering iron.

I have a '93 Fender Blues deluxe tweed and don't seem to have any reverb, am I missing something?


Check the connection to the reverb tank (rectangular box usually sitting on the bottom of the amp). There are a pair wires that connect it to the amp. If wires are connected, and the reverb is not working, you may need to replace the reverb tank.

I have a Blues Deluxe it has started making a in and out sound similar to higher pitch hum but in and out at a constant pace


check out your tubes....it sounds like one is working its way out of its socket or you have a microphonic tube...may be time to replace them and have the amp serviced while you are at it. ...Does one tube have a whitish look? inspect them/.....are there any cracks? while it is on...tap them with a lead pencil...something NOT metal...does it make a loud noise? These are all indicators there is something going on with your tubes..Good luck

Fender blues deluxe reissue is making a popping sound


Try tapping the tubes (especially the small ones) lightly with a regular wood pencil and see if you can detect noise. Also verify your guitar AND cable are not the source of the noise by using them on another amp. Verify that popping exists witout guitar cable being plugged in.

Also this is the season for static electricity. Shuffling shoes on rug may create pops due to discharges. Spray rug with Staticide if this is the case.

How do i connect the boss gt 10 to a fender blues deluxe amp and bypass the amps preamp


You can plug the output of the gt10 into the "power amp in" jack of the Fender. This bypasses the preamps in the Fender but uses a buffer amps in the Fender to drive the power amp. Please note that the reverb is STILL in the circuit when you do this. You can turn the reverb to zero if you wish to disable it.

My Fender Blues Deville 212 has a very "ratty" tone on clean...


i am guessing on what the problem is , the post is very vague. i am guessing a channel switching issue. you need to check the "sugar cube" looking power resistors solder welds. they are probably cracked and arent making good contact. if you tap on the amp it will cut in and out, its probably these two resistors. they are usually 470ohm 5 watt cement resistors. what happens is they get real hot, and as they cool down they crack the little solder welds. i usually replace them with new and keep them floating up over the pcb to help them stay cool and off of the board to prevent further solder weld cracking, stock they are real close to the board. then put a little silicon under the resistor to hold it in place and to keep it still on the board. i just fixed a blues deluxe with this issue. while you are in there, cut out the resistor sitting right behind the reverb pot, this will make the reverb awesome. also solder the mid pot center leg to the mid pot leg that comes off of the bass pot leg to get better midrange control. very easy mods. check the master volume pot, is it a B100K? pull it and put an A250k in its place for better volume control. bias pots , etc. check my website yostamplifier.com.

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe making popping noise


Ah yes, the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. I have seen more of these in my shop than any other amplifier!! I have even sent recomendations for design changes to Fender about this amplifier.
Sadly, your amp tech may be correct: while the amp is within working specs, you can still have an issue with a bad socket. The cheapest thing to try is to replace the preamp tube(s) you think may be causing the problem. If the problem persists, it may need to be serviced on this issue (by a different 'certified Fender tech'). In defense of the last tech you had work on this amp, these amplifiers have a brittle design and do not gig or travel well (there are a minority of these amps made that do perform). Fender tried to do too much for the price on this model: best advice is to fix it, sell it and get your tone with a more stable model made by Fender (like the new vintage re-issues). Fender, like Marshall, has for years been having problems when they get too far from thier 'working reciepe' of what made them great companies.
You likely have a socket that needs re-tensioned, or a preamp tube not behaving. If it is not these, then a tech had to dive in the house of cards that is this circuit. Sorry for the bad news on this, but it is the truth. I only take on Hot Rods that 'appear' to be fixable. I am a development engineer, build amps from scratch and fix them for the local music shops, and my success rate is a dismal 60%-ish percent on these...
Thanks,-mike
