Hi All - I'm getting my lad set up for his new band and they will be playing small-medium venues. He has a Mustang II at home and never plays it on anything other than the '65 Twin Reverb Setting. He wants a Fender tube amp that will give him reliable clean tone in a live environment (usually mic'd I guess) - he will use pedals for any OD. He wants reverb and tremolo in the amp if possible. He is very heavily influenced by the sound of Johnny Marr, John Squire, and rockabilly. He wants clean, sparkle, twang. I've spent hours reading the reviews online and youtube and here's where I am at - would really value any advice you experienced guys can offer. We are UK based and the reality is we can't ship an amp in from the US within budget, nor can we chase around the country trying out used amps: - 'Twin Amp' (the 100/25 watt version) breaks up earlier and has a drive channel he will not use, the low watt option seems useful but i think it renders the term useless - not sure if it improves the clean tone or not (GBP500) - New reissues (Deluxe, Vibroluxe) break up too early and are not of the quality of the older original Fender tube amps - don't think these give him the sound he wants (GBP1000) - Original blackface Twin Reverb amps way too expensive and out of the question! (GBP2500+) - Reissue Twin Reverb 85w (not the SF), used is a possibility (GBP500) - A used/original 1970s-1980s SF Twin Reverb is looking favourite - yes it's still heavy but it will give him the tone he wants and will be of a higher quality than a reissue (GBP800) - Of the original SF Twin Reverb's, the push/pull master volume versions which add drive are probably not the ones, those with a fixed Master Volume may be suitable, those with no Master Vol will be early versions and more expensive. I know speakers is also an important factor (groan!) and my preference I think is stock Fender blue label (in a SF) rather than upgraded Eminence or Jensen. Maybe I'm over-thinking the entire thing - all thoughts/guidance very much appreciated! Cheers.
