I have been on the fence about getting a Princeton Reverb for a while. Sold a rifle yesterday so I had a grand burning a hole in my pocket. Pulled the trigger and bought a PRRI from my local music store. Immediately retubed it with JJ's and upgraded the speaker to a Weber alnico ( I took it out of another amp that I just sold ).The amp is great! I have never played thru an amp that is so sensitive to string attack. This will really make me more aware of my playing " touch." I still think the amp is a bit overpriced, but it is very nice. I also said in another post that I would put my upgraded SCXD up against the PRRI stock. I was wrong. The PRRI is a better amp ( even stock ). The SCXD is still a great amp, but it does not have the sweet tone that the PRRI has.
