I'm thinking about a small (~15w or less) tube amp (I'm on a budget... I really shouldn't spend more than about $3-400) to build or buy... With the styles of music I play I want something more American-sounding... I've been looking at either a 5e3 kit or one of the new(er) Fender Excelsior's... However, I don't know a whole lot about the Excelsior, other than spotty reviews I've seen and people elsewhere whining about the lack of knobs. I do like the multiple inputs and the simplicity of the controls. Can someone who owns or has used an Excelsior and a 5e3 tweed give me a general comparison of the two? I'm going to go see if I can demo one if my local shop has it, but I'm curious as to the tone differences as I can't A/B a tweed clone with it... Any advice or alternatives to these two is totally welcome!
