Hi y'all, I've looked around and I'm trying to get some Hot Rod deluxe amps for kids at my school. I've gotten grants from people, little kids rock, Quincy Jones Musiq Consortium, and The Dallas Foundation. You can check out the projects here: http://www.donorschoose.org/TexasBluesProf Too reasons I chose the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Amps are I think they will hold up well (to kids) and tonal variety. They have the Fender clean tone and two overdrive channels - just what is needed to keep kids interested. Plus I don't think I'll have a problem maintaining the amps and they are much more durable than many. We just got a couple of the Classic Vib Strats for the advanced kids too. Check out that link and let me know what you think? We go the guitars, we need strings, supplies, and amps now. If you'd like to help out inner city kids feel free to make a donation too. Give the gift of music.
