Fender launches Landau Hot Rod DeVille ML 212 at NAMM 2015


The long-serving Hot Rod DeVille 212 has been upgraded and modded for respected session musician Michael Landau and released at NAMM 2015. Instrumental solo artist, world-class sideman, session master and “players’ player” Michael Landau is an influential guitarist known for creating rich, expressive tones.  Landau has used a Hot Rod DeVille amp on stage for many years, with a special two-amp setup fed by a variety of stomp boxes.

The Hot Rod DeVille ML 212 amplifier delivers beautiful tube tone and is based on the Fender Hot Rod DeVille III, with tube circuitry and 60-watt output, two 12” speakers, spring reverb and an effects loop. The ML version ups the ante by incorporating several cool features that guitar players are sure to appreciate, such as volume-switching and boost capabilities.

About Author

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
