This would be a situation of using a backline 4X12 provided by the club my band is playing at, so I won't have a chance to rewire anything. The Princeton would basically be a head into the cab. But I certainly wouldn't want to run the risk of damaging the OT, especially if it won't be loud enough for gig purposes. Btw, I Love the non-verb Princeton. Mike Campbell's using them now, for it's worth. Fantastic clean tones.Fact: Nowhere else in the Fender B/F or S/F offerings is there such a difference between a non-Rev amp and it's companion rev-equipped amp. For technical reasons I won't bore you with, the PR will sit up & bark while the P (non-R) simply won't.
Opinion: I've never had much use for non-Rev Princetons. Unless you use a pedal to drive the $not out of the input, they're just not that loud!
Putting one into a Marshall cab might make it sound a bit bigger, but it still won't roar.
As for the Z mismatch, yes, everyone says that "a fender can tolerate a 2x mismatch", but I'd prefer to see you mismatch downward, not up. Were this my project, I'd re-wire the cab for 4 ohms. I'd rather "heat up" the OT than run the risk of flyback damage.
No argument. But that's all they offer. If you're looking for that, then give it a try(into the Marshall).Fantastic clean tones.
No, I've never gigged with it; I've just assumed it wouldn't be loud enough without a really good monitor mix. But I had heard/read that if you run one of these smaller Fenders into a 4X12 that the four speakers increases the volume significantly. But, I don't know the science, and have no experience with it myself. Either way, I wouldn't want to risk torching the OT.No argument. But that's all they offer. If you're looking for that, then give it a try(into the Marshall).
Personally...just me thinking out loud....a "fantastic clean tone" amp, run through a "Marshall cab", somehow I don't picture that real clearly. I guess I'm pre-conditioned to think of a 1960 cab as anything but a "clean machine"....
Have you ever gigged with a non-Rev Princeton? Is it loud enough for you? I know I could never get away with such a small amp.
'Cause I can't be 100% sure as to how well I'll be able to hear it on stage. In theory, yes, simple; in practice, not always so: depends on how competent and easy to work with the soundguy is. Also, will band members gripe about a bunch of guitar coming through the monitors? I'm trying to consider all potential pitfalls before trying it out, and avoid a headache at the gig.In the OP, you asked about if it would be loud enough if miked. If you are going to mike it, then why bother using an extra cabinet for volume?
Adding a 4x12 will make a difference in volume, but not enough to not worry about stage volume. In theory or in practice. 12 watts is still only 12 watts, through one small speaker or four big ones.'Cause I can't be 100% sure as to how well I'll be able to hear it on stage.
