Well...they describe the Blues Deluxe as a step back in time to a more retro/blues sound than what the Hot Rod series give you.

 

These modern versions of vintage Fender amps from the '50s customized those designs with channel switching and reverb while retaining the vintage style and tone. When the series was updated, the extremely popular Hot Rod series was born and became a new standard in tube amplification. Now Fender has brought back the Blues designs to satisfy the increasing number of enthusiasts who continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, and vintage-style features and look of the original versions.
It's got me interested...it could be the sound I'm looking for in a not-too-expensive combo....though I wish they had a smaller version...something in a 15W, but not the Blues Jr. ...though maybe they sound alike...???

 

I like the tweed cabinet...and I don't know if the amp voicing of the Blues Jr is the same as the Blues Deluxe...just less power...???

I was afraid to go off Topic but since Darklava mentioned the Hot Rod I've got to tell you about it.

 

I played the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe at GC.

 

It's a nice amp. Channel one is a nice full clean, not wimpy at all. Channel two is a nice warm overdrive. Channel 3 adds a whole lot of gain but it is still clear and articulate. Reverd is good too.

 

I know this doesn't answer you question but in case you haven't played them side by side.

 

I leaning more towards the fender than the Mesa because the fender has fewer controls and costs less and sounds just as good. IMHO

I just bought a Bronx 112, a Blues Deluxe clone for about half the price, will be putting it to the test next rehearsal (picking it up on Tuesday or Wednesday = rehearsal day)

 

basically it's a Blues Deluxe, but in black like the HotRod's, a little more compact in size, but heavier due to the HUGE speaker magnet (The Governor)

 

I'll probably use it the same way I used my Hotrod and Blues Deville's before:

 

DRIVE channel only, 'master volume' maxed out and control volume with the 'Gain' pot (usually not more than about 2 - 3) - overdrive from my T-Rex DrSwamp, EQ, err, unless really extreme things happened to it during transport (like bass an mids all 0 and treble and presence max) I never even looked at them... never sounded bad either

Now THAT would be self-indulgent...almost piggish. :D

 

I kinda crossed that line when I got my second Traynorthough there is a big tonal difference between my vintage Mark 3 and the newer YCV40WR.

 

But getting a Hot Rod Deluxe and a Blues Deluxemight be pushing it! ;)

 

But I've seen a couple tweed Blues JRs on eBay...and one of them along with a Hot Rod...or maybe a...

...OK...OK...get a grip DUDE!!!

 

Ahhhh....there....I'm feeling better now....the GAS attack has passed...for the moment.
