Well, it's the apocalypse, so I feel perfectly justified in resurrecting a zombie thread.I've owned 6 of these beasts:
3 Superchamps-sound great, very portable, but I found that the lack of a mids knob limited their usefulness in the venues I played, eventually sold all of them.
2 PRIIs, one with a Kendrick speaker which was good, one with the rare EV SRO which is absolutely killer. I'll never sell it till I'm down to my last 2 or 3 amps (out of the 100s I've owned). The way to fix the buzzy distortion depends on the peculiar way the switching is set up. The pedal and the pull knob do slightly different things, so you actually have 4 sounds. If you leave the knob in, the gain on the lead channels is reduced a lot. Dime the amp at that point and it blossoms into a smooth, harmonically rich, moderate gain machine that sounds (dare I say it) a little like my Fuchs mod. I'd keep the amp for that sound alone, but it also has a killer clean sound, not BF but a bit warmer, like a cross between BF and Mesa clean.
1 DRII-disappointing, sounds nothing like the SC or the PRII to my ears... It's for sale if you want it
Was gonna say the Princeton 2 is a great amp, just needs a new speaker.Well, it's the apocalypse, so I feel perfectly justified in resurrecting a zombie thread.
Plus, I believe I own that PRII with a Kendrick speaker. I bought it from Cowtown Guitar in Vegas some years ago.
Sounds fantastic. I've used it for a lot of pickup demos, and I run it in stereo with a Fuchs Black Jack 21 in my Floyd tribute.
