Great amp but a little high in price. The video on this page describes incorrectly that the amp has a pair of 6L6 power tubes but in fact has 2 6V6 power tubes. 6L6 tubes are used in higher powered Fender amps of 40 watts and above. My Princeton has a retrofitted 12 inch Eminence 1258 speaker. it sounds almost exactly like my 65 Deluxe Reverb and nearly as loud.

what a bummer!this amp is a tease and a failure. the sound is very nice with the vol up to about 3. then it sounds just like a sweet princeton reverb. (i know because i had an original. pr's are one of the best sounding most highly sought-after amps of all time.) but put volume on 5 where it should give nice break-up, and this amp sounds terrible! there is a horrible ratty noise. many people say they eliminated this bad sound with a baffle change-don't believe it. plus why spend $900 on a new amp and then have to repair it? the amp made the same horrible noise when i plugged it into other good spkr cabs. i connected it to 2 of my mesas with the same result, so IT'S NOT THE CAB NOR BAFFLE!fender came close to a home run but totally blew it!what a shame. for a few hundred more u can get a real pr used. it's worth it. this is bad!

    Terrible quality control. I have had the amp less than a year and it has been serviced three times. Fender can make you service the amp indefinitely until warranty expires as there are no Lemon Laws for amps. DO NOT BUY this amp.

        Great cleans from low to high volumes. Perfect for the house and gets loud enough you could take out to small venue. Much cleaner than the 68 Princeton.

            Great tone, killer reverb and tremolo. Sounds as full as a Deluxe Reverb but not too loud for small venues. Takes pedals well. Clean Blackface tone you can only get with the real deal. I am able to get all the sounds of the 60's Mowtown/Memphis studios with no effort. It is right there.

                Comments about Fender 65 Princeton Reverb 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

                These days I'm playing out in mostly small bars/rooms. Previously, I've owned a 70s Pro Reverb and Vibrolux and more recently a 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb. While I love the Deluxe Reverb (different midrange voicing and more lows than the 65 PRRI), it's almost 50 lbs. vs. the PRRI's 34 lbs. The smaller stage footprint is helpful and it's much easier to lug around. I was worried this wouldn't stay clean to slightly broken up when I played with the band. This has plenty of headroom/volume w/ no mods and easily kept up playing roots-rock/alt-country/Americana type stuff with a tele. The tone on the PRRI is just amazing, definitely sweeter than the Deluxe (which is pretty great!). Chime, sparkle, growl, warmth clarity, it's all there. I find with the PRRI I can easily dial in my slightly broken up tone without being too loud. The Deluxe was always a battle to get that. I don't use a dirt pedal, just a compressor and clean boost, so I rely a lot on the amp's natural speaker breakup. No rattle which I know was an issue w/ these early on. The only negative I can say is initially this amp was really bright. But between my guitar tone knob and the amp treble I got it under control. I also think the speaker has broken in a bit and tamed some of this. Better to have brightness to spare than not enough. I see this as my main amp from here on out.

                  I bought a second '65 PRRI so I can leave one where I'm rehearsing or playing and still have one in my car for gigs or jamming. This is simply a wonderful amp. If you love playing clean (and turned up) Fender tube amps, this is a must have in your arsenal. When a Deluxe Reverb is too much, this is perfect. Plug in and play.

                      Comments about Fender 65 Princeton Reverb 15W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

                      The Princeton Reverb by Fender is a superb amp for a variety of applications, but is especially desirable for a really clean sound (e.g., classic surf music, country and jazz). The amp can also rock and produce amazing slightly overdriven sounds heard on many classic rock songs. I bought this amp mainly to use with a Gibson ES 175 for Jazz (light strumming, finger style and piano-style/plucking chord voicing). I was using a Polytone Minibrute that just wasn't clean enough. Most of the amps I played were simply not clean enough (i.e., able to preserve the clarity of subtle but important tones going from Dom9 to Dom7(-9) in lower positions at higher volumes). I've been playing for years and I had very high expectations for this amp...and I'm happy to say the Princeton meets all of them. I knew I wanted a smaller Fender 65 Reissue style tube amp. I needed it to sound clean, warm, punchy and be portable. I also wanted to use the amp for classic rock by turning the amp up loud to break-up (get a bit dirty)...however, I did not want my ears to bleed when I reached this volume. So I was torn b/w getting the Princeton vs. Deluxe model. The Princeton turned out to be perfect and I have no regrets! The amp sounds great in my home, its very clean (even at high volumes) and it is plenty loud enough for large rooms. The larger models (Twin or Deluxe) would be way too loud for me by the time the amp started to break. The Deluxe is just heavy enough to make me reluctant to take it anywhere or everywhere. The Princeton is very easy to move. I am 50 and have some hearing loss and a bad back, so getting just the right sound without losing any more hearing was very important. My ears and back got exactly what was needed without any loss of sound quality or other trade-offs! If you looking for warm clean punchy sound with chiming highs when you need it - this is THE amp. Fender Reverb and tremolo are too intense past 3 or 4, but sound great at < 3!
