Fender blackface amps were too expensive when I was getting started playing...then, by the time I did have some money, Marshall amps were the thing, so I got a Marshall half stack. Then the Marshalls were too big to carry around so I picked up a mid-80's Rivera designed Fender Twin Reverb II and really liked it...used it for years...still have it. Fast forward to now. I've been able to acquire a few blackface Fender amps, and very excited about it, but...I don't like the way they sound...none of them. I still like my Rivera designed Twin so I know it's not my ears...also, I have a friend, a Marshall fan, who told me he never liked Fender amps so I know I'm not totally alone. So, my questions: 1. Does anyone else here not like old blackface Fenders? 2. Does Fender, or anyone else, make amps like the old Fender Tweeds, which I hear are quite different from blackface Fenders? 3. Are there any good sources for information about the differences between the Fender Tweeds and Fender Blackface amps? Thanks!
