Princeton is too small
Twin is too big
DR is just right.
Of the ones I've played, '68 Custom Princeton Reverb.
Yeah, the Twin is too big.
Which is why I'm dying to get one again.
Nothing exceeds like excess.
Still the Twin.
I love the tolex on that amplifier!
I have two Fender Champion 40's which are OK, but really like my Blues Jr.
My tweed ‘65 PRRI with 12” Cannibis Rex speaker!
65 Blackface Princeton Re-Issue.
I LOVE it's tone, it sounds how an amp should.
Only one problem is I need a DRRI for more volume playing
with a drummer ( my twin brother).
The Princeton is so good in it's sound -I sold my Blues Jr. to buy my PRRI.
68 Custom DR , WGS ET65
Absolute favorite is the 68 Vibrolux and it sounds very close to my actual 81 Vibrolux.
65 PRRI - They did a great job with this amp.
65 DRRI - You have to play a few however because some of these are flat sounding and about 1/3 are jewels.
Bassman LTD - When I want the neighbors to feel the low end. The band probably won't be louder than you type amp.
IMO, the Bassbreaker series are the best sounding Fender amps out there right now.
superchamp x2 and bassman ri
I sit and stare lovingly at my Super Reverb. I put better preamp tubes in it and all my GAS went away.
I'm a Fender amp guy through and through, so a tough decision. Living off the grid basically rules out most of them, so these are only wet dream amps for me:
'65 Princeton or '59 Bassman.
Yup, @GGardner , I am so friggin' jealous.
Tweed Blues Jr, SCXD, Deluxe VM, Vaporizer, Champion 600, Mustang 3, GDEC3-30. Yeah, I kinda like Fender Amps.
Super Sonic 22 combo hits the sweet spot in many ways. In addition to the features noted, it has good build quality, fairly easily serviceable internal layout (for a PCB amp), multiple clean channel voicings, drippy spring reverb, multi-function footswitch, useable effects loop, reasonable headroom but also obtainable power tube breakup (6V6s), good looking blackface cosmetics, made in USA, and its priced for the masses. Find them easily for $600 used. Only downside I experienced with mine was some noise/hiss.
I liked mine a lot but sold it when I got a pair of Prosonics and didn't need three amps. Now I'd also like to get a head version of the 22.
I love my 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb. Great cleans and breakup tones on two different sounding channels. I know some have talked about issues with hum and hiss on this amp, but mine sounds dead nuts silent at idle, and no noisier than any other tube amp I’ve had after knob twisting.
I love the Syd Barrett reference.
