  • Fender Princeton Chorus....should I grab it?

    Okay, I LOVED these amps back in the 90's...always wanted one. Just saw one for sale locally for $120 in prime shape. Probably could get it for a bit less...



    Should I pick it up?

        Great price.

        Snag it!

        They are decent for vocals if you're in a pinch too!

          I had one with two 10's and it had a wonderful clean tone, which is mainly what I wanted it for. It sounded great at low to medium volume, but I found that when I turned it up a bit at a gig the bass response got really boomy. Even with the bass knob on the amp turned down to 1 or 2, it sounded terrible, so I sold it. Maybe it was just that particular amp - I don't know. But for use at moderate volume, it was an excellent sounding amp. If you could get it for $120 or less, its worth checking out.

            That's a damn good price.

            I can mod the dirty channel to sound great. The cleans are already there.

              I think you could get your money back without too much of a problem if you sold it later. There would just be the hassle of selling it.

              Would running your mustang & vox amps in stereo with the m13 basically do everything & more than the Fender PC?

                My favorite clean tone amps are a twin reverb, JC120, and princeton chorus. If it were me, I'd grab it.

                  Honestly, I don't know. If I remember right, this amp actually runs in stereo, right? I don't NEED it, but at that price...I may just have to snatch it up! Waiting for the guy to call me back about it.

                        I see those for sale often. If you missed this one, I'm sure another will be along soon.

                            Geez Steve, you're such an amp whore man!

                            (I'd hit it btw)
                            (Tubefox) I can't decide if I like it. I mean, I'm a fan of obscenely pointy guitars but...It looks like a cross between a flying V, a horseshoe, a viking axe, and an anorexic teenage girl.
