I know it’s probably blasphemy as Fender amps are usually held in high regard, but I think I may sell my very new Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue in favor of maybe a Peavey Classic 30 or Blackstar HT Club 40. The issue is that while I love the BDR clean tones, I absolutely cannot get a decent tone out of it with any dirt box (and believe me, I’ve tried A LOT of them). It’s weird in that I bought the amp specifically because it was supposed to be this wonderful pedal platform. It is NOT that however. Don’t get me wrong, it sounds great with mod pedals and Reverb/Delay pedals, but I’ve yet to get anything other than midrange honk garbage from any dirt box I’ve put in front of it. They all really sound like ass. In fact most of them sound almost as bad as the amps actual "dirty" channel. Now I’ve read I’m required to replace the stock speaker if I really want the amp to work properly. My question is why bother? Why throw good money after bad? Why not just sell it and get something that does what it is supposed to? In all seriousness, I would bite the bullet and get a new speaker if I could find a single audio/video clip of the BDR killing with any kind of distortion/OD pedal in front. Guess what? No such thing exists on the internet. (Google away and prove me wrong, I'm more than happy to eat crow and discover that this amp actually isn't a complete waste). For an amp that is rumored to be such a great pedal platform, I have yet to hear it actually function in that capacity. Weird. Suggestions?
