except for the eminence red fang which i have in mine.
I would like to get a good endorsement deal but since I only play in my bedroom probably isn't happening.
I don’t like to talk about it or make it seem I’m some thing special because I’m not. You never know the college kid that used to get drunk at your gig 30 years ago can grow up to be a VP at Fender.
you know, i noticed our speakers are set at different positions.....yours is sideways and mine is almost upside down. the way they are set really effects the tone in a major way. i put mine in all positions and found the way you see it in the pic is the best. yours is set one " position" to the right of how mine is. pretty damn close.
I didn’t notice that or play around with it. It makes total sense though.
a friend of mine has the 64 DR and he said it is the best amp he has ever played and heard. I had one of Jim Magee's old HWDR clone for a while and it sounded amazing so i can only imagine how the real fender with the better output transformer sounds.
Jim Magee is going over the Bluesbreaker I’m selling…
I figured you went there man i need to bring my Strat over there to get setup as I cant get the tuning to stick and I know Jim's strat setups are hard to beat. I really regret letting that amp go honestly but I wanted a Marshall and wanted to upgrade my pedal board so I'm happy! I had a 1965 C12N in there when i had it and it was great.
Brown Deluxe (or clone).
But of those two, the Deluxe Reverb.
I've heard good things about the Eminence Alessandro GA-SC64 12 inch. I have the 10 inch version in my 68 custom PRRI and am happy with it.
I'm blessed to own a 66 Deluxe Reverb but also got blessed to find a vintage 64 Vibroverb and the deluxe sits in the corner while I try to play quiet with the 15" JBL.....it growls even at .5 (less than 1) on the volume sooooooooo am about to go with a quieter at low volume pre amp tube #5751. Love to play thru a Princeton someday.
Too late for me as I bought my '64 Custom Deluxe Reverb about 3 years ago, long before the HW '64 Princeton came out. However, I did wonder if I'd have been better off with the Princeton version when I saw them, so it would have been nice to have been able to compare them. I do like my Deluxe though: Lovely rich clean tones, sounds like a bass is accompanying me at times and the reverb (and trem if you like them) are amazing.
I took mine to a college class recently and one of the tutors asked to play his '59 reissue Les Paul through it and he loved it. I've used mine for gigging and still didn't need to turn it above '5' with an acoustic drummer, I've only cranked it right up at a rehearsal studio, but it sounded glorious. I do prefer my Marshall(s) for heavier tones, but I can understand why some would use a cranked Deluxe.
I'm going to have to try the '64 HW Princeton at some point, but it wouldn't be a great move financially for me to sell mine to swap for one.
Princetons are awesome....they work for regular dudes like me all the way up to Robben Ford.......or Jim Campilongo.....
Overwhelmingly used by many artist on records and by professionals for live or jam settings for good reason ~(*_*)¬
Honest just going to say once a guy walked up to me after I played at a little venue.....
He's like : "what amp are you using Ive been killing and trying to get that tone?"
Me: "I played through a Princeton Reissue Bordeaux with a 112. What are you playing?"
Other dude: "I'm playing a Deluxe Reverb Reissue"
Me: "Yeah I love my Princeton"
Knowing you've got a mess of amps, Id get the Princeton. Im not sure there is a better clean tone anywhere.
If it was for home AND gigs, Id say get the Deluxe cuz, more power.
Best bet is try them out at your local Fender dealers....
Not saying one is better than the other and I would rock both if I had the coin and space but your probably going to like one more than the other after trying them first hand and its the best way to know what to go after even if its a Reissue for refrence.
Well the game is afoot. I’ll be making the final call tomorrow. The 64’ HW Deluxe should be here in no time after that. Some nice lady named Maria is the final contact…. But there was a Matt involved also. What a cool job to have …. Sending people stuff that makes them happy. I’m ecstatic cause it’s all so cost effective!!!
Nice man!! Cant go wrong with a genuine Fender amp especially if its made from scratch in the USA supporting jobs and a great company here in the States!!!!
Congratulations and enjoy good sir!!!
