    both chime for days. beagle is that lightning matchless wish they made, and the BnT has a mighty plexi roar for an amp its size. and you'll have plenty left over for a nice bob burt cab to go w/ 'em. :cool:

    Just a comment; did anyone think we'd ever be at the point where a heading like "best 10 watt amp under THREE AND A HALF THOUSAND DOLLARS" wouldn't even rate a comment of whew? :)

    Doh! I was thinking that, too.
    What's the best 10-15 watt over 3.5 Grand would be interesting!

    Best, Pete.

    I thought the same thing....geez, I'm gonna say just about anything is available for that kind of jack.

    Actually if I had that to spend, it would be a /13 10/20 and a decent telecaster. There. That should hold you over for about 50 years :AOK

    I gotta say that the title of this thread makes me think we have all lost our minds to some degree-I almost thought this was an April Fools' thread.

    I Snaged this off EBAY about a Year ago. I got it for $1250.00 and It is in Imacculate Condition. I had it Re-Capped and Had my Tech Bias the Brimar 6V6's at 35 milliamps. I Changed a few of the Pre-Amp tubes and Paid alot of Money for a Few Old NOS Mullard 12ax7's. - But It was Worth it!
    I Experimented with some different 10" Speakers for several Months and Have finally Settled with the Eminence Ramrod. - It had the Biggest Sound compared to The Original Jensen P-10, JBL D-110, Weber Blue Pup, Modern Jensen C-10 and Celestion Vintage 10.
    This is the best 12 watt Amp I have ever heard! The Vintage Charachter and Classic Vibe is Un-Obtainable in any Modern Amp at any price!
    Besides the Princeton Reverb is one of the most Recorded Guitar Amps of all time. - but Jeff Beck's Blow by Blow is reason enough for me!

    I agree on the Aleesandro's. I love my Beagle. I would love to have a Black n' Tan. The only problem is that they really are not baby friendly even at 10-15 watts.

    I'm sorry but for the best 10-15W amp, I think you'll need to spend pretty close to 3.5k. If you're interested let me know because I'm thinking of selling mine... :)

    I heard the "bro" discount price might be $3495.00...exactly what am I getting for my money, Leon? Or is it a "surprise"? ;)

    Like the tread title sez, what you're getting is The Best 10-15w amp, plus I'm gonna throw in a set of the Emperor's new duds for free if you order before midnight. :rolleyes:

    Saw an original, early Vox AC-15 with the EF86 circuit not long ago at about that price.

    +1 on a Vintage Princeton! I love my 64 Princeton Reverb. It sounds so good.
    I add BJF Pedals to color the killer clean tone. I do think vintage is the way to go.
    They have mojo that newer amps just don't have. IMHO! Also resale value is only going up. :dude

    gotta love the univalve.
    my '58 champ is cool.
    my matchless DC30 in the half power position puts out 3 watts too many, so i guess it don't count.
