I am a newbie to the forum and I have gotten a lot of great information from reading posts. Here is a question for the amp-o-philes out there: I am a jazz player looking for a clean Fender tube sound. I recently played a Hotrod Deluxe (brown tolex edition) and really liked the clean part but the drive channels were really not good to my ear. In addition I have heard that the reliability and overall quality of these amps is, well, variable at best. Are there other combos can give a tone similar to the clean fender deluxe but a little lighter (under 40 pounds) that I should look at to compare? Thanks in advance for the advice!
