The amp sounded great in a large club without being mic’d.

After some investigating, I ended up at the Fargen booth and learned that the amp had been upgraded with the “Fargen Hot Mod”.

Generally speaking, most of the stuff on this site can be applied the Hot Rod Deville, some of this can be applied to the Blues Deluxe/Deville, and very few of it can be applied to the Blues Junior or Pro Junior.

They may be a part of the "Hot Rod" lineup, but internally the BJ and PJ are totally different amps.

After ten years of intensive use and transportation it just loose its visual quality, all other things working perfect.

So now I bought a new one Blues Junior to let the old one for home works and new fella for gigs.

The Blues Deluxe/Deville have quite a few similarities, but they also have some differences. The rectifier, which converts AC to DC, is solid state; the effects loop is solid state; and so is part of the Reverb unit.

There are many classic Fender amps which have a SS rectifier, the blackface Twin Reverb being one.I also learned that Fargen Amplification is based in Sacramento, where I had just relocated.I snagged some business cards and left with a new project on my gear wish list.It just comes down to a matter of preference, with the neutral to warmer power tubes sounding better for my application of classic rock and blues tones.Wondering how similar the Fargen mods are to the Billm mods.
