    What about the Fender Showman blackface "piggyback" or the Fender Bassman blackface "piggyback". I played both of those amps circa 1965 and they sounded absolutely incredible!

    The 1971 400 PS model.

    If you get one of these and move it around a few times a day you can cancel your Gym membership, lol!

    The 1961 Fender Tremolux 2-piece with one Jenson 12 and the 1960 Fender Pro, primarily a Jazz and Big Band Amp it came with an enormous 16" Jensen or you could custom order a JB Lansing Voice of the Theater speaker. It was between a Super and Twin Reverb, but without Reverb and it was LOUD so you could more than compete with a 6 to 12 piece Jazz or Swing Big Band.

    Here's my two:

    Fender 1960 Pro (Brown Tolex) with optional JB Lansing "Signature Series" Voice of the Theater 16" 2-way speaker

    Fender 1961 Tremolux (Blonde) 2-piece amp, 1-12 cabinet.

    Those are both cool, cool amps. Good choices as keeper amps. I'm somewhat shopping for a A or B circuit Tremolux head to go with my 2 x 10" repro cab.

    Is that a pic of your Tremolux? I see 2 speakers.

    5F10 and 6G3 for sure.

    I'd like to see a center-volume 5G13 Vibrasonic-Amp, but I doubt there's much demand.

    And a V-front Dual Professional.

    Blackface Pro Reverb.

    Tweed Champ and Deluxe amps that don't cost an arm and a leg because some of us with tin ears can't her the difference between circuit boards and hand wiring or solid pine cabinets vs particle board.

    The Fender Twin (aka 94 Fender Twin aka Fender Evil Twin aka 2002 Fender Twin Pro Tube Series)
    They started making these in 1994- 2002. Then they slightly modified them with an added tremolo effect and discontinued them in 2010. This is basically a Fender Twin Reverb with added „hot rod“ effects such as a crunch channel via footswitch, switches between 25 watts and 100 watts, effects loop and much more. The clean channel sounds almost identical to a Fender Twin Reverb. Big fan of this amp. The only downside is that it weighs a ton, approx. 77 pounds so slightly heavier then the usual Fender Twin Reverb.

    Drip edge Vibro Champ, add a shorty reverb tank.

    The Not-So-Evil Twin of the Vibro Champ, the Bronco. I think it was the only Silverface with red lettering.

    I really do feel your pain! I've owned two BF 1964 Tremolux 2x10's. I regretted selling my first one since I saw it go out the door in 1974. :(

    That's why I bought another one two years ago! :)

    My answer was on the first page. The Brown Deluxe is a magical amp. The only way to get one is vintage or clone.

    That’s a shame. I got a clone and it is going nowhere. Easily the best amp I’ve ever owned or used.

    I had the 763. It was good, but the 6g9b was great.

    I agree, also one that should be reissued. It's a mean machine.
