I've been in the market for my first tube amp for the past couple weeks. Searching for that classic fender clean tone--one that's spanky and bright, yet also able to warm up nicely. Primary usage right now is in my bedroom, but I'm planning to be moving to my own house here shortly where I'll be making one of the rooms a rehearsal area/studio. I want the ability to have enough clean headroom to gig with the amp eventually, but that's a little ways out. Last week I picked up a Blues Deluxe from GC, really liked the tone it put out but quickly realized it was WAY too much wattage/power for what I need. Returned it and upgraded to the '65 DRRI yesterday which I know is still too much volume for bedroom usage, but since the BF Princeton and DRRI were the same price I decided on the Deluxe since I'd eventually strive for it. I guess I'm looking for a bit of reassurance that I made a good choice. Am I missing out on a 'sweet spot' with the DRRI at in-home volume that I'd otherwise get with the Princeton? I'm happy with using my Fulltone OCD for crunch at reasonable volumes. GC has the 45-day return policy, so I'm not locked into the DRRI. I'm thrilled about it, but I'm not sure if this feeling that the '65 BF Princeton was the better choice is valid or if I'd be feeling the same way had I gone the other direction. edit: I play my strat majority of the time, but I also have a LP copy with beautiful Seymour Duncans when I want some humbucker in my life.
