    Just curious, what's your fave Fender vintage reissue amp? I've tried the Twin Reverb, Deluxe Reverb, and the Bassman. Of those I prefer the Bassman but it may be that I've always liked the sound of 10" speapers. The Bassman has a nice warm "tubey" sound, I'm not great at tone descriptions. Whats your favorite and why?

    That's easy

    The Reissue Bassman is the one I like.

    The '65 Twin is ok, but the others are lacking something.

    I can't wait to try the new '64 VibroVerb. That looks real nice.

    The bassman!

    The new Vibroverb looks great but darn that's a lot of $$

    I'm torn between the '59 Bassman, and the '65 Deluxe Reverb. When push comes to shove, the Bassman wins. I understand people being very proud of their vintage peices, and they probably do sound a couple of percent better, but the reissues, IMHO, sound GREAT!
