Choosing a fender Amplifier.

I've had a slew of Fender amps "acquired" over the years and currently have:

Blues Deluxe/Hot Rod Series (the drive channel disappoints, but the clean channel is voiced well for pedals),

Super-Sonic 22 watt combo and 100 watt head (versatile amp series, great vintage, Bassman selects and reverb tone, but the 22 watt distortion channel does not deliver like it's 100 watt big brother, and the combos have a history of hiss/noise problem complaints around the internet), a 65 Twin Reverb Reissue (clean, crisp, heavy and loud as hell at 85 watts of power - no complaints I love this beast), and lastly is the newer 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Reissue (light weight but plenty loud, great sounding tube reverb and tremolo on both channels, the "custom" channel is classic clean and the "vintage" channel is voiced for that famous beefy Bassman "must-have" tone everyone loves).

So lately I've been enjoying this 68 Deluxe Reverb Reissue and I think it's really the best combo out there. I still love my 65 Twin Reverb most for authentic beam tetrode tube cleanliness, but it's just so heavy and loud it looses points for versatility. As for the Princeton series, to each their own as things do get subjective at some point, but not my style. For a first amp, I recommend amps that offer at least 2 channels of versatility. The only problem with the 65 Twin Reverb Reissue (though I own one), the 68 Twin Reverb Reissue, and the Hot Rod/Blues Deluxe series is that they all are pretty much one-trick ponies. Check out this 68 Deluxe Reverb Reissue Demo. I honestly believe this is the best of Fender's latest reincarnations and is winning converts right and left.
