If it's blowing fuses. It probably has a bad output tube.
If it's blowing tubes. It may have a cracked tube socket.  Also may need to be biased by a tech.

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.

Is there any way to use a heil talkbox with a fender '65 deluxe reverb reissue?


No - you use these with a microphone. Plug you guitar into the Heil, put the tube in your moth and sing into a mic while playing. You CAN plug the microphone into the fender amp, but a PA system is better

Sometimes the reverb works, then next day it dont.i have a 1999fender hot rod deluxe


Fender Amplifiers are notorious for their reliability issues.However, I'm sure that amp will sound sweet once you get everything working again!

The problem is likely your "tank". The tank contains the springs which create reverb as the guitar's signal is sent through them. A broken spring could be causing your problem.

Luckily, any of the larger music stores should have them avalible.

Good Luck!

My reverb on my Fender deluxe Hot rod amp has stopped working. What is wrong?


Your reverb spring is most likely broken. If it has electronic reverb, then the chip has gone out. For both of these problems, a qualified amplifier technician will have to look at it and replace the parts.


Hope that helps!

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.

I have a brand new fender deluxe combo amp is the preamp in and out usable for an effects loop


Yes you could do that. The preamp output is just a BUFFERED output of the signal sent to the power amp. And the power amp input jack is BUFFERED before driving the power amp. These impedances are neither high or low being in the 1K to 3K ohm range.

The jacks for BOTH are mono jacks so noise pickup is possible if long cables are used. The external effects unit should be well grounded and operate off the same receptacle as your Fender for system safety. Use SHORT audio cables to minimize noise.

ALL the signal will pass through the effects unit when used this way... HOWEVER the internal reverb will still be in this path. You can kill this by turning the reverb control to zero on the Fender.

Fix Reverb unit on Fender Hot-Rod Deluxe Amp


Could have broken a spring in the reverb tank, or a wire connecting it to the amp, or the reverb driver tube, or a few other things, but those are the most likely in this situation. Thats what I'd check first. Give it a little slap and if it vibrates like normal, your spring is probably ok, you can still open it up and double check though. Check your wires. Then pull your reverb driver tube and replace it. If that doesn't work, it is probably in the circuit somewhere, and you should not work on your amp unless you know what you are doing. They store large amounts of electicity in the caps and they can kill you.

Hi, I've owned a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe since '01. Around '06 I started having problems like crackling sounds when on but guitars volume was all the way down. Loss of volume here and there. While amp was on...


In YOUR amp, take a pencil and tap teh sides of the tubes GENTLY, listening for any crackling... note SOME microphonics is normal in the preamp stages.

Since retubing it fixed it once, it is likely either a tube was bad OR a pin of a tube wasn't quite making so replacing the tubes cleaned it and made it work. Tubes DO go bad, especially when they are vibrated like in these amps... BUT don't just replace the lot, try to find which is at fault..

On your friends unit, LIKELY an electrolytic bypass capacitor for one of the reverb preamp stages has dried out and needs replacing.

Hot rod delux 1-12 master volume, reverb and eq circuits not working. amp still functions and boost still functions


1st thing to check is the tubes that run those circuits

A good amp shop will have access to a tube tester.

Secondary issue might be one of the power supply lines has quit and you'll need a tech for that.


please rate my help if this helps....Thanks
