Oh wow, is this Justin Holton, bringing back the content that was on the old Unofficial Fender Hot Rod Deluxe User's Guide?
No; it's his content, but I'm not Justin. His site used to be on studentweb.eku.edu/justin_holton (link does not work), and then he put it up on another address, justinholton.com (also doesn't work).
He seems to have abandoned this information, or at least in terms of keeping the content up on the web.
Umm...so who are you?
I don't think I like your tone. Mark Newcomb, Colorado-based web developer. Also guitar player and classically-trained pianist. I have had experience as a recording engineer and music teacher as well.
So I take it you have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe yourself?
Bam! Just get an expensive boutique heavy metal head and use the Fender Hot Rod as a speaker cabinet. Actually, the Engl Savage's clean channel is excellent as well.
There's something I see in one of these articles that's wrong! Fix it!
*Slides chair back, raises hands up Conan O'Brien style* No. I'm not getting into that. How would I know that your information is correct, and Justin Holton's wasn't? I don't have the electrical engineering background to make that kind of judgement call, and I have absolutely no desire to be the referee. Use the information on this website at your own risk. Or feel free to dismiss this whole thing and click the back button; I don't care. This is strictly a "pet project" of mine that I've built and am keeping up on the web for fellow Hot Rod Deluxe enthusiasts.
Any way to contact you?
...yeah. Holy shit. The impression I get is that his site got hugely popular and he didn't want to deal with all of it, which is probably why he doesn't even host this information anymore. I can't say I blame him, and I don't really wish to get sucked into that either.
