    I’m having trouble with the dive channel i have a 93, and I read some were about something being wrong with the tube cap’s or something like that. I’m hoping it’s only a bad tube.

      HI Berol, what is your amp doing/ not doing?

      The amp was available as either a 2×12 or 4×10. I have updated the specs for the speaker configuration.

      Try changing to different numbered tubes ,my harp player experimented with different tubes & his amp did the same as yours until he removed 1 of 2 power tubes so he cut the power in half & turn up the amp

      Just look inside where the quality assurance sticker is and at the end you will see 2 letters. First one is the year and second one is the month of manufacturing
      A=1990 A=January
      B=1991 B=February
      C=1992 C=March
      D=1993 D=April
      E=1994 E=May
      F=1995 F=June
      G=1996 G=July
      H=1997 H=August
      I=1998 I=September
      K=1999 K=October
      L=2000 L=November
      M=December
      So for example my Blues Deville shows EB so it’s a 1994 made in February. This system works for all Fender amps made from 1990-2000

    I bought a tweed Fender Blues Deville 212 Reissue at a music shop in Putnam CT last year. The ID plate in the upper left corner in back doesn’t say “212”, just Blues Deville Reissue, but it has 2×12’s, all blue, no label speakers. Also has a diamond 60 in the lower left corner of the plate. The serial number block is worn off so no SN. But I can’t find any information on it anywhere. I can send photos if it would help. Very loud very Fender tone. Everything looks and sounds right, but I can’t find anything about it. appreciate your help.

    Good concept, however, with built-in expiration date.
    Better cooling makes the amp much more durable … 😉

    Ha ha, Feierabend, so that’s the concept! How to cool better? Mine developed an intermittent loss of sound that I could influence by tapping or moving one of the smaller tubes, then stopped working altogether. Now in the shop.

    Kevin McCracken, about not being able to go above 2 for harmonica, try replacing 12AX7 with 12AY7 which has less gain.

    Capacitors, relays and ICs will no longer withstand the 80-90 degrees in the case. For this reason, unnecessarily broken amplifiers end up on my workbench again and again. A louvre above lowers the temperature to a moderate 50-60 degrees and the amps play forever.
