I’ve been meaning to get a Fender amp for a while and it’s high time I followed through with that. This will be almost exclusively for home/recording use with the occasional instance where I play with a friend or two. For reference, I have a Fender Baja Telecaster and an Epiphone Lennon-inspired reissue Casino. My amp — the only one I’ve ever owned — is a Vox Pathfinder 15R. I have a little compact Memory Man delay pedal that I rarely use anymore. Here’s what I’ve been looking at in recent weeks/months/years: 65 Reissue Princeton Reverb Pros: Iconic clean blackface tone and lush reverb/tremolo, relatively small size and light weight for tube amp Cons: Expensive, possibly a little loud for home use, potentially higher maintenance Blues Junior IV Pros: Less expensive Fender tune amp, nice clean tone, master volume, relatively small size and light weight for tube amp Cons: Weak reverb, no tremolo, possibly a little loud for home use, potentially higher maintenance Champion 20 Pros: Very affordable, nice clean tone, master volume, variety of Fender tone profiles and effects, small size and light weight, low maintenance Cons: Smaller speaker, more complicated control panel, more settings and effects than needed/wanted Tone Master Deluxe Reverb Pros: Iconic clean blackface tone and lush reverb/tremolo, lightweight, solid wood cabinet, built-in attenuation, line out, low maintenance Cons: Expensive, larger size/footprint, unsure about long-term repairs to digital components For a while I’ve been leaning towards the Princeton, but I’m very intrigued by the Tone Master. I love my Pathfinder P15R, so no tubes isn’t a dealbreaker for me — if anything I’d love something as reliable as the little Vox. But then I’m like, do I really need to spend that much when I’m primarily an acoustic player? Would I be content with the Blues Junior and a reverb pedal? Or does it need to be tubes? What about the little Champion 20? I’ll likely buy new, I’m weird like that and I can typically get a nice price. I prefer the 65 reissues to the 68s from what I’ve seen and heard. Thoughts? Suggestions? Relevant experiences? Alternatives?
