    Which one would you get and why?

    I've been looking at adding one of the new ones to the collection and need TGP to help me decide which one. Yes there are other brands out there but I'm just looking at the Fenders for now.

    Thanks!

    Tweed Deluxe RI or a Tweed Bassman RI depending on how loud I need to be.

    Thanks great choices. In this case I'd want to have plenty of volume if I needed it.

    my fav all time amp is the Twin. but i need 80 watts like i need a hole in my head or, 2nd wife or another guitar or amp
    so I stick with the 30-40 watt.
    got a BD last summer and it does what i need it to do
    Have a 69 VL- ehh not 100% crazy on it. should have gotten a vintage Pro Rev instead
    Have a 02 Pro Tube Pro Rev ( my favorite of the herd.) not exactly a pro rev but has great cleans and switchable to 12 watts


    if I had to do all this over again id go for a clone. PTP wiring.you can have it modded and tweaked to your liking and cost isnt that much more than a
    a USA made fender

    I would get a Deluxe Reverb and a decent attenuator like the DR Z Brake lite.

    I would get either a Twin Reverb or a '59 Bassman.

    I'm a BIG fan of the Bassbreaker series. I think the Bassbreaker 15 is a really nice design, but the Bassbreaker 30r appears to take that concept one step further. Really nice stuff, IMO.

    If my budget is a bit more flowing, I would personally look into a Super Reverb Reissue or the Tweed Twin. Loud and fun.

    Happy hunting :beer

    Thanks guys good ideas so far... What's the TGP consensus on the new Solidstate Tone Master Twin and Deluxe?

    If volume were no issue another Super Reverb reissue. Volume is an issue so I bought a new Pro Junior IV last Wednesday.

    68 Vibrolux.

    Killer vintage vibrolux tone on the 'reverb' side, the normal channel is very cool and a bit more tweedy.
    Speakers are good, and Even David Grissom has been seen around Austin playing one here and there.

    Win/Win. Had I not a deluxe, I'd seriously consider getting one. 'lux was the best fender ever made (Blackface around 66 or so) and this pays some decent homage in a nice new amp.

    My DRRI is a lot of fun. Couple minor upgrades. Plus traded into it so net zero cash. LOL

    I've been hearing some rumblings over the Vibrolux... Just to be sure this one?

    That one.


    KILLER amp. I tried to swing my trade for one of those when I got the DRRI but didn't want to come out of pocket with cash to make the difference.
    Love the DRRI though too, (Put a scumback and some NOS tubes in appropriate positions out of my stash, but it's solid stock).

    That Pro Junior is great... Try the Warehouse Et-65 or ET-90 in it. I have one in my Blues Jr and it was like lifitng a blanket off the amp.

    I just ordered a DRRI with a greenback, so there's my vote. But the Tonemasters look interesting too.

    As much as I love tweeds, if only one, I'd go with the '64 hand wired Deluxe.

    You know me, I went Scumback M75...LOL So when I hit it with a dirty pedal it nudges just british enough. but still sounds like a blackface with my tele.
    Guthrie Trapp has been on about those allesandro speakers lately as I recall.
