    hello all, just thought i'd share a clip of this fender hot rod deluxe that was modded by my buddy (who's also a member here in TGP).

    he changed the OT, PT, & added a choke to the amp.

    anyway, enjoy!

    Thanks for listening man! I'm normally an od pedal guy but this amp is pretty tempting!

    I loved the smooth, dark clean tones in the beginning, but the overdriven sounds don't quite do it for me - bit thin, IMO. Great playing. :)

    There's always room for improvement! Thanks for the comment though. Any suggestions on how the od section should be voiced?

    I like it and I wouldn't change the tone on the lead OD sound.

    What I would do for recording purposes would be to slightly compress it with a really open gate to fatten it up slightly (not a lot) but keep it transparent sounding without any obvious clamping going on. Then add maybe a little analog delay around 300ms with mostly dry sound and only about 2 repeats.

    Live I'd leave it as-is since there's no a recording on the planet that truly sounds live. I bet it sound better to your ears in person than through even the best PC sound card after mp3 compression. I'd very much bet it would be fine in a club like that. You need a little more present sound live and I bet that kind of sound would cut through just fine. If you have a sound tech to help massage it - even better.

    Plenty trash the sound of the HRDx, but I've found mine to have all kinds of really cool tones in it if I take the time to play around with it. Mine's pretty far from stock using EL84s & a Celestion clone, but not a single solder joint was touched to do the alterations.

    Good job and nice playing!

    Cheers,
    - JJ

    That sounds fantastic. The clean tones at the beginning are smoooooth! Nice work and great playing to.

    Love your playing Mark. Really tasty. Wish my HRD can sound like that.
