    Well... seems that these amps sound very good so having a non headache solid state amp to me it's not a bad thing. But spending 1000 bombs for a chinese solid state amp which is worth about 300 or 400... I'm sorry but I would just if I have money to waste. I've payed almost 400 bombs for my Super Champ X2 which is made in MEX and it's a marvelous DIGITAL/TUBE amp. Actually prices on these amps are totally nonsense like many things Fender is doing right now. These amps can't cost all that money just because there are some names written on the front of these amps.

    I assume you are talking about the tonemaster, not the tweeds, right ?

    If yes :
    The main reason I am interested in these amps is the attenuator. I would love a PRRI but these are way too loud for me. Let alone a RDRI.
    What would you advice me to get over the Deluxe tonemaster (on the 0.2 watt setting) ?
    I guess a Princeton with high quality attenuator would work but now we are in for over twice the price of a Deluxe tonemaster.

    Get an actual BF Champ ($900-$1,000), a Silver Face Champ (right at $500) or a 57 Champ RI ($999). All three are better than the Tonemasters and can be kept in check for home use in big part to their 8 inch speakers.

    Get a real amp use an aftermarket attenuator like Iron Man Mini ll....


    These Tone Masters are not the answer for that.

    If you want to go to $1,500 the Carr Raleigh amp is insanely awesome, 3 watts with a 10 inch speaker.

    But don’t you have a Kemper, so why would you need anything else . I’m sure there’s models of every fender on there .

    Only in my dreams. Have you seen the price of those things? I have a £165 Katana 50.

    In my opinion it thrashes the Katana on SQ and faithful reproduction of a BF. However, other ears may have other opinions. I hear that some around the internet can listen to a youtube video of a Stratocaster and tell you how many pieces are in the body. I don't have that level of hearing, so maybe the ringing in my ears has made me an easy customer for amps. ;)


    Of course, with the Katana, your pony can do a lot more tricks, which is definitely worth something. And your point on price is not lost. I'm fairly certain I'd find it hard to make the TM sound better than 4 Katana 50s matched up and running different models. That would be a real hoot to play through.

    I’m sorry, I mistakenly thought you had a Kemper.

    I’d vote if you added the Super Six and Quad Reverb.

    I couldn't care less, my Katana does a damned good Princeton Reverb, because they sat next to each other as I tweaked it. :)
