I was not 100% with my Blues Jr for jazz clean sound. After a lot of reading and youtubing I decided for the Princeton. The amp (Princeton) just fits exactly what I expected for. Really clean sound, perfect treble and less middle than the Blues J. A lot of headroom. Perfect with my ES-175 and my 80?s American Strat.
This may seem like a lot of money for an amp thats 15 watts through a 10 inch speaker but if you're looking for the ultimate in a really clean sound, this is the one. Great for jazz and fingerstyle. I have a Blues Driver pedal if I want to add a little dirt. You won't regret it if clean is what you seek.
Love my Princeton. Tone to die for. The perfect home studio amp. I use an Okko Diablo. What a combo: Princeton-Diablo. So clean and clear. It's like hearing the real characters of my guitars for the first tim. Play it low, play it loud - wow. Pricey? Sure, but it'll be the last amp you ever buy. I traded in a 40W Fender Custom Vibrolux. Great amp. Zero regrets. Thanks to GC for all the advice.
Look no further. This is the perfect home-studio amp. Plug it in and you won't look up for days. Yes, it's pricey, but you get what you pay for - and you get a lot in a small package. Classic Fender tone. Loves pedals. Mod it? Forget it. The Fender folks know what they're doing. Kudos to the great folks at GC for letting me trade my Custom Vibrolux toward the Princeton.
I bought this amp used at G.C., but the night before I made my mind up I went on the internet and read reviews on this amp. People were complaining about the speaker and tubes saying they had to be changed for a better sound. I went to G.C. the next day, I told the salesman what I had read, he cranked this amp up for me for an hour, he played all kind of different music on the amp. Then we let it sit for awhile the amp was quiet, then I played, I got to tell you this is a sweet sounding amp, I would not change a thing on it, Fender got it right with this amp. I had a twin and got rid of it because of the weight, the sound that comes out of the Princeton sounds like a small Twin, it is great. I play rock and blues, I put the Princeton beside my Blues Jr. NOS and I will probably sell the Blues Jr. I love the bass and loudness from the Princeton and also the clearness and spank of the notes. I will keep this amp. Bottom line I'm sure glad I didn't listen to the negative comments that were on line, this is a great amp and if something happened to it, I would definatley look for another Princeton.
Bought this amp about 6 months ago and still get flashbacks to 60's garage bands every time I plug it into my Les Paul. Can't beat that vintage Fender all tube sound, in my opinion. A solid little amp with lots of punch. So far beyond the current digital junk I can't imagine why you would buy any other amp in this price range.
Excellent amp all around. Very good string to string clarity. Tight tones from the ample 10" Jensen, beautiful Fender clean tones plugged straight in with nice tube break up beginning at "5", this amp along with most tube amps takes pedals very well. It works great in the bedroom without blowing out your ears, volume at "3" yields good sonic interpretation. I like it because it is very quite, little to no hiss and excellent tube driven reverb, great for mic recording and is suitable for most small gigs. Very portable and well built with built in tremelo with footswitch. My quest ended when I bought this amp, I tried the Laney Lionheart which was a very solid amp with a darker British voice and so it did not have the spanky Fender tone, from there I tried the Supersonic but found that the effects loop was very noisy even at levels below 12 o'clock and the reverb had intermittent audible clicks and ticks, yes this amp is a little pricey but it is rich in vibe.
Wow got one handed down to me and all I can say is I love this amp mine is 1965 Blackface and this amp is so clean and clear and the volume is perfect fot recording You just can't beat the old tubbies Rock on Fender it makes my Tele sing. Get one you won't be sorry.
Great amp for a home studio, the low wattage lets you crank it a little without it being overbearing. The tone on low volume is clean but has that roundness and tube fullness like a super-reverb. The 10 inch Jensen gives it more punch vs. small amps with a 12" speaker.
I have an original Fender Princeton Reverb Amp made in the 70's and it sounds fantastic... it sounds really good on clean, but it also sounds good for metal. Ive played a few small gigs with it, and once played a big gig this is loud! Totally recommend it for beginner or Expert guitar players.
