    Do the voices in your head have a sound they want? If so, you'll know it when you hear it.

    That's how I ended up with a Pro Reverb and a Deluxe Reverb RI. Pretty much stopped using the other amps

    It was a bass guitar and little bass fender amp. It didn't weigh much. Couldn't see in the back. I think it was a cheap amp. Lol

    Very light tends to mean it's solid state/modeler. Tube amps are heavier. But don't get stuck on tube/SS. In some situations Ss/digital amps are just the trick

    Anyone have a vintage Concert??
    I have an opportunity to buy one from an old friend I used to gig with....I think the amp is a 62' or 63'.
    I am pretty sure it is blonde...definitely not black.
    I have seen it several times and it is almost mint....no mods.
    I would think it would sound something like a Tweed Bassman but tell me about it....what do you think??
    I intend to use it for Blues and R/R.

    I have a blond Concert chassis that I am in the process of rebuilding.
    Still need some parts so it's on the back burner.

    Yes, similar to the '59 Bassman in that it has the same highly coveted output transformer and 4x10" configuration.
    The "Harmonic Vibrato" in the brown/blond Concert, Bandmaster, Pro, Super and Showman is like no other.
    If I could grab a complete good condition amp for a good price I would jump on it.

    Unless it's been re-covered, amps from this period are blond in the head/cab versions and brown in the combo versions.
    Of course as true with any era of Fender exceptions exist.

    Oh, amps of this series can be identified by having a presence control and lack of bright switches which first appeared on the true blackfaces.

    OK - Picked up a Frontman 15G for a tenner for ease of carrying to give outward guitar lessons. Didn't expect much, BUT - a little careful EQing and a some minor help from even simple pedals delivers that Deluxe Reverb on-the-edge tone !!

    Please comment about my Twin’s circuit. It has been repaired by different people and hence is a real mixup of people’s whims and fancies...looking forward to your feedback

    I picked up one of those years ago and cut the back panel to make it open back. I also dropped in a Vox speaker from a dead little Vox SS amp. It is the only SS amp I own and I must admit with a little tweaking it gives some good tones. Really loud as well for such a small amp.

    Comment/advice: I would clean the dust and dirt out of there with a clean soft bristle brush and a vacuum cleaner. Some deoxit for those pots and tbe sockets wouldn't be a bad idea, either. You should check out the "Guitologist" on YT. There are lots of good tips there.
