    I had one of those (with EVM12L speakers) that I hauled around for about 15 years. I also played Fender Rhodes at the time so the big speakers helped a lot with that.

    I was playing a small pub one evening and a friend let me borrow his Princeton Reverb for the show. It was such a treat to be able to carry my guitar and amp at the same time (something that was impossible with the mighty Twin) that I bought the Princeton a week later and started using smaller amps onstage and bringing it back through the monitors if I ever needed more volume.

      I like the Cyber Twin for a number of reasons - one being that it is much lighter than the all tube Twins and still manages to deliver.

        For me it is a 1964 Blackface Bassman circuit AA864. I found one at a reasonable price about 10 years ago but the head cabinet was a total disaster. I had a combo cabinet constructed for it and put in a vintage Jensen P15N. I had the chassis overhauled and tweaked by Gerald Weber and now I have a tone MONSTER. Clean tones with such creamy, warm, and fat sound. I absolutely love this amp and I will never part with it. AA864's are getting hard to find and today are very costly but in my opinion the best circuit Fender ever made.

          I'm a newbie, but I've been trying every amp I can get my hands on for the last few weeks (mostly in local music stores). Out of everything I tried, I loved the Hot Rod Deluxe III best, but again, I've been playing for 6 months, so I'm sure there is way better out there...

            I bought this little SilverFace Champ in the mid '70's when I was teaching guitar in a music shop. It was a great teaching amp. Around 1980 I stopped playing entirely for about 32 years. But I kept that little Champ and my '76 Strat all these years. A couple of years ago, I decided to get back into my music and am thankful to still have that Strat and Champ.. Back in the day, I replaced the 8" speaker in the Champ with JBL K-110. It was a bit of an upgrade, but not so well matched to the amp. Just a couple of years ago I replaced the K-110 with a Weber Vintage 10" that is well matched to the amp and the sound is magnificent. All I use with the amp now is my mid-seventies DynaComp and the tones are fantastic.

                  You may hear various and occasionally conflicting points of view expressed about them, but I've always thought they were darn good amps.

                      Drip panel 4x10 Super Reverb. The mix of everything, cab, speakers, amp is perfectly balanced, tone wise
                      Best regards,

                          I had a sweet sounding mid 1960's Princeton amp, single channel with a nice Celestion 12 in. speaker ( instead of the 10 in.). Very basic amp and it burned sweet when cranked. It was stolen in 1985. I had a Marshall JCM 800 at the time too ..... still a bummer to lose my Fender
