    So I'm thinking about getting one of these and I need some opinions from those of you who know your stuff, cause I sure don't :)
    I basically just need a good clean because a friend of mine makes some really awesome OD pedals and I'll use one of them for harder rock type stuff. What is the difference in weight between these amps? There is a guy locally that would sell be a "Twin Amp" for $475, the tolex is a little beat up but it works great! Just worried about gigging with it because people say the Twins are super heavy. Your knowledge is aprriciated:RoCkIn

    They're all really heavy...go pick up a blues deville. It's about 60 lbs or so. If you want light then you may want to consider a head/212 cab situation as opposed to a 212 combo.

    I know the price is good, but my minds not made up just quite yet.

    How are the blues deville cleans compared to the Super and Twin?

    They are heavy, but at that price I'd probably snatch it up. I said I'd never buy a big amp again, but I found a super for a good price and have bee ncrating it around. I love never running out of headroom. I just put it on a dolly with my pedals and I can still get everything in one load. No bif deal. Get yourself a manly amp.

    I think you're right, $475 is pretty awesome. Even if I don't like it I could sell it for the same price I bet. It was either a Fender combo or some sort of head/2x12 setup, I guess either one is going to be heavy; might as well get it all at once!

    but have always LOVED the sound of a Super......my choice.....go for the tone you love and that's it.

    The Super Reverb is awesome, but I just can't afford one at this point. I've been looking all over for a cheaper used one, but to no avail. Anybody want to trade a Super Reverb for a Twin? :rotflmao

    I got a sf super on the bay a few weeks ago for $650. Keep looking. You can find one.

    Once again you are right, I might hold off on the Twin, why settle for something when I really want something else. Thanks guys!

    A twin is a very special amp in it's own right and thats a very good price. I've heard some very good players who can make'em really talk to you. Listen to Jeff Beck with some TR's and tele on "cause we've ended as lovers" on youtube and you'll see what I mean.

    You can always get a head cab for the Twin Reverb and break up the weight a bit. Of the 3 amps the Super Reverb is my favorite. The Twin Reverb is a great amp too. The Blues Deluxe is nice, I like it better than the hot rod deluxe. Nice amp for the money.

    A Twin for 475 is a great deal. The Super is a little lighter but more akward to move. What "Twin Amp" is it?
