Fender Humboldt Hot Rod V2
Due to the overwhelming success of the Fender Humboldt Hot Rod, we wanted to take the next step in customizing this fantastic combo. The first order of business was fine tuning the sound. After analyzing the previous demos of this amplifier, we noticed that the treble control was almost always cranked. So with the next Limited Edition Humboldt Hot Rod, we wanted to take a more balanced approach with the EQ and let the speaker open up a little more.Since the Eminence Cannabis Rex speaker uses a hemp cone, there is a fair amount of high end roll off and tone smoothening, which is why we chose it from the beginning. So, in order to keep the same voice of the speaker, Eminence suggested a change of the speaker doping- that is the treatment placed on the surround of the speaker which gives it a broken in sound and aids in reducing cone cry.
Well, after months of testing, we were floored by the range of tones possible with this new custom Cannabis Rex and the Hot Rod Hempster was born! Since we had this speaker custom voiced specifically for the amp, you won’t find it anywhere else but in the Fender Humboldt Hot Rod.

We also chose to go with black Nubtex covering on the new Fender Humboldt Hot Rod for a look that distinguishes it previous versions. Plus, we matched it with a Salt & Pepper style grill cloth which along with the Nubtex, has never been used on any previous Fender amplifier.

Last but not least, the Humboldt Hot Rod has a custom red Fender badge on the front and something we’re quite proud of, the Humboldt Hot Rod rear badge which not only sets it apart but signifies an official entry into the Fender product line.
