Huh.. now there are two ~15 watt tube amps in my basement. I actually got this PRRI last week but have been working through things in my head and waited to share anything. I've had the Orange Rocker 15 for years, always been super happy with it's crazy ability to have endless drive at any volume level. But I've never gotten along with the Natural channel. It's very brash and always requires tons of guitar tone knob adjustment that has to change as the volume level goes up. It'd be a way better amp if it'd been designed with a 2nd tone stack for the natural channel and had just been "clean & dirty" instead of "Natural & Dirty". Maybe a speaker change would help me, but at this point I'm not sure if I"ll try that, or if I really need/want two amps. That natural channel is really tricky to use with drive Pedals too, the two channels respond so crazy different that it's almost like you need to dedicated different pedals for each channel. There are a very few of them that can be dialed up to sound good with both without bending down to adjust the pedal. I've always wanted a Princeton, when I started taking lessons I'd go to a school and my guitar teacher had a vintage Princeton in his office and it always blew me away. I went and tried as many Princetons as I could the last month or so. I really loved all the 12" ones I tried. I could easily have ended up with the Bordeaux one GC had versus this one. But this one was available. So far it just seems like such a goldilocks amp. It's so ridiculously easy to dial in, it is so easy to make it work with seemingly any pedal, and I love it's dynamics and compression versus the Orange. The Princeton seems to compress and do just the right thing when you want it to. At least when played Clean, the Orange is much trickier, it can be ice-picky and too strident/powerful when you dig in clean. Stuff like rhythm patterns with 16th note strums are just so easy and comfortable on the Princeton in comparison. Anyway this thing is awesome, as if anyone needed to hear that again. It doesn't really break up at all, it must be cleaner than the 10" ones, though I haven't tried turning it up beyond 8 so far. I'll be more dependent on drive pedals, but it's super easy to use it at low volumes to the point the power scaling on the Orange doesn't seem important anymore vs pedals with the Princeton. The real Spring Reverb is amazing. The reverb pedals I've owned have all had a bright sizzly tails compared to the real thing. The Tremolo is amazing too, and I even had a Fender Tre-Verb which models the Princeton. The real thing is way better. Only gotcha is I use a Boss RC-10r heavily for practice.. the drums on the RC-10r don't sound great run into the Princeton unless you keep the Reverb on the amp dialed way down and the Tremolo off, the FX loop on the Orange takes care of that issue far more effectively. Boss thought of many solutions to that issue though as the RC-10r has a second output and you can configure guitar out one and drums out the other. I don't like the Vintage dual pedal Fender ships with the Princeton.. I may look for something more pedal board friendly that allows detaching the cable. The photo is misleading due to angle, the Princeton is indeed wider than the Orange but not very much. Princeton is definitely a little heavier too, but not really enough to care about carrying it anywhere. I played the Bordeaux limited edition as well with the Jenson P12Q. That version also sounded amazing. I'd have been super happy with that one too. I never found any place locally with a normal Black 10" 65 PRRI. I did try the Custom 68 PRRI, it was fine, but the one I found had tons and tons of hum compared to what I bought, and I didn't quite want the darker sound of that amp.
