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:

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.

my 2 cents about those amps and kids.

need care with input jacks (kids yanking cords out or yanking cord sideways). maybe leave a cord plugged in and wind it 2-3 times through the carry handle
as strain relief for the jacks.

shut off and let the amps cool off before moving
those amps have circuit boards inside
the boards aren't super delicate but they're not the strongest things in the world either
use care when moving in general (don't let em get banged around)

inspect the rear of the amps to make sure
there's no spot for small hand to reach in and get a lethal shock

Thank's bluesowl.

All very good points and very well taken. Perhaps I should do change out the jacks with the standard switch craft jacks? Have to see if that
would void the waranty.

Also wondering if Fender fixed the resistor problem yet?
Pretty common complaint/problem that causes all sorts
of issues with channel switching etc.
