    Hi!
    I have the chance to score a Princeton Reverb 1966 at a pretty good price. Everything is original except the power transformer. Dont know what to think about the non-original power transformer. Does it affect the tone? I'd like to hear you guys about that... Thank you!

    It would only matter to a collector, not a player (as long as it's the right spec).

    What's been stated above but make sure the price you pay reflects a non-original transformer.

    And Make sure it's the power tranny and not the output tranny..

    I have a '66 PR with a replaced power transformer, it's one of the best amps I've ever used. If the price is fair I'd do it
