    Curious how close a 68 Custom Princeton sounds to the 65 PRRI, particularly with the stock Custom speaker, once the circuit has been tweaked.

    The Customs are cheaper and easier to find but I don’t like the higher bass and mid output.

    Change two capacitors, one resistor.

    There's a specific way to set your bass control on a Princeton Reverb. Turn it all the way down. Then, roll it on until the tone fattens up. Don't overdo it. "3" is usually enough.
