I tried one out this weekend and was not impressed. I thought the treble was very shrill, even with it turned as low as 2 (!) The breakup was awful sounding, flubby and farty. Maybe its the 10' speaker or the tubes but I couldn't believe that Fender is asking $900 for this thing. I have a modded Blues Junior that sounds better than this but I wanted to try it out since I don't own a 6L6 powered combo. I would think the Deluxe Reverb is the better buy at that price so I am curious how successful the Princeton will be. Maybe its meant to be a clean amp only with pedals doing the OD. These are supposed to be great studio/recording amps so maybe I'm clueless. Oh well. Just curious if anyone else thought the same thing.
