    Hi,

    I'm looking for a small but sensible all tube amp. The smallest I've seen so far is the Fender Pro Junior. Does this amp have a tube driven reverb? The Fender web site is not clear on this.

    Can anyone suggest alternatives?

    It has no reverb. It is the simplest control layout: tone and volume.

    Get a SF Princeton Reverb if reverb (and tremelo!) are your goal. Decent practice and small gig amp. Not the smallest-but small.

    Champ and a Grail...

    I tell everyone to buy a Holy Grail 'cause you'll always need it around (like keeping a left-handed glove for the southpaw who shows up at the barbecue, always happens.) and a Champ is something every home should
    have.

    Yep. Can't go wrong with that combination.

    More important than the Grail is The Champ - every 'lectric g'tarist should have access to one, IMO. 8)

    Speaking of Champs, I'm looking to get one and want to know what to look for... years, speakers, SF/BF/tweed, etc. What should I get. Ward

    IMO, you need to get any one that works, or has the potential to work. I've had Champs from '64 to '82, and all were goodies in their own right. Currently, I have a lovely '66 that just drips with the kinda tone I like. YMMV.
