I'm notorious for drawing out my guitar-related purchases and a Fender amp has been no exception. I posted this thread about a year and a half ago and I thought I'd get a new round of input, along with a poll this time! So yeah, I want a Fender amp. The short version is that I'd like small combo that sounds, looks, and feels like a classic 60s Fender amp, to be used almost entirely for noodling and recording at home at family-friendly volume levels. I play mostly clean. I love reverb. I'm an acoustic guy and like fingerpicking and strumming folksy chords on electric guitar and adding texture and fills to acoustic-based songs, though over the years I've slowly gotten more confident as more an electric player with more riffs and runs and pseudo-lead type of stuff. My electric guitars are a Baja Tele and a reissue 65 Casino. I have a Vox Pathfinder 15R which I love in every way — sound, size, and looks. A 60s-sounding Fender amp seems like a good complement to the warmer tones of the Vox. In no particular order, here are the three amps I've got on my shortlist: Tone Master Deluxe Reverb The flexibility of this amp would be fantastic. No tubes is just as much a pro for me as it is a con, if that makes sense. I like the option of attenuating the volume for home use, as well as the XLR out for recording. I love the way this amp sounds in all the reviews and comparisons I've seen, and I did play one briefly a couple years ago and liked it a lot. I do wish there was a headphone jack to go with the other modern features, and the physical size of the amp is almost outside what I really would like to have to store. These didn't get the price hike the tube combos did, which is nice. 65 Princeton Reverb This seems to be the entry point into the ideal all-tube, analog-reverb/tremolo mid-60s Fender combo. I love the tone of these amps. I also love the mid-60s look. The footprint is more ideal than a Deluxe. As someone who hasn't ever owned a tube amp and isn't DIY with electronics and such, long-term care and maintenance is a question mark for me, even though I'm sure that concern is overstated. I also wonder if a 12w tube amp is still too much amp for me at home and if I'd benefit from the full range of tones on the volume knob. 68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb This is the new entry to my shortlist. This amp is appealing in terms of physical size, which is right about the same size as my Vox. Also appealing in terms of price, which comes in a bit lower than the TMDR or PRRI. The demos sound really great, and I like that it has a 10" speaker. It's almost like a smaller Princeton in that sense. I do wish it had spring reverb, but digital is not a dealbreaker for me considering I have the Tone Master on my list. Fewer tubes to manage might be nice for me as a noob. Aesthetically I prefer the mid-60s Fender look, but don't necessarily dislike the 68 trim. The Blues Junior got dropped from the list I made last time around because based on the times I've played one and based on reviews and comparisons, I think it would overlap more with my Vox. That and it doesn't have tremolo. Aaaand it just doesn't have the iconic 60s look I'm after! I like the 50s styling a lot too, but the 60s Fender amps are just where I'm interested. The Champion 20 left my list because I got one for my daughter. So, it's technically hers but I do find I like to borrow it sometimes! I was actually surprised by how much I like it, and it's only made me want a classic 60s combo more. Another brand I've been looking at is Milkman, whether that's their pedal-format The Amp or whether it's "what if I splurged and got a little hand-wired combo in one of those gorgeous wood cabinets..." But I'm probably leaning heavily towards the familiarity and more traditional route of a Fender though for now. Anyway, I type too much. High fives if you made it to the end. Put your vote in the poll that will almost definitely possibly determine or influence to some small degree what I choose!
