Fender Blues Deville 2x12. The volume knob is linear taper so it seems like this amp is really loud because the whole range of volume resides in about the 1-4 setting. You can change this to audio taper to give it more use-able range.

Fender Blues Deville 2×12.

Once you've seen one of these amps you've pretty much seen them all, Blues Deville, Hot Rod Deville, Blues Deluxe, Blues Jr. etc. The input jacks are PCB mount and typically break their solder connection from jostling. Same sometimes happens to the tone and volume knobs which are PCB mount also. These amps are also known to have broken or cracked solder connections on the tube sockets, especially power tubes. Re-flow them for stability, in these times.
