    You would need to talk with Ben and see what the Blackbird would cost with Trem, I got one of the early ones before he dropped the trem as standard. Worth asking from my perspective as I just think he does some great work.

    Princeton Reverb - Dirt? Crank it! Or through a pedal in front. I like my TIm with it. This is my grab and go jam setup.

    Need a little more volume, get a '63 Vibroverb RI and grab the same Tim or a germanium fuzz.

    both of these amps have a nice warm tone, bias vary vibrato/tremolo and lush Fender reverb.

    Swarts, Allens and Tone Kings are also all great choices.

    I've never played a Tone King but they look good. I'd want the non circuit board one more than likely tho and they seem $$$.

    Anyways, what I have meets your needs I think and that is a Victoria Regal. There are other options like Princeton or some such (new or Headstrong etc...) but the Regal has at least one real advantage. You can run one or two tubes or mixtures of many types, without rebiasing. That way you can have 5-30+ watts. And it has a lo/-6db input so that with 5w is great at home. It's still surprisingly loud but it sounds large and 3D which I don't find with other options.

    I can't believe no one has said Fender Blackface Vibrolux Reverb!

    Cleans are fantastic, crunch is amazing, gets full on distortion that melts your face without harshness, has a great reverb and tremolo (usually)...

    You can't ask for more.

    Got a price on a current Fargen single 12" custom shop Blackbird Combo with Reverb and Trem...... $3100.00

    Mine is almost 10 years old and things have changed a lot pricing wise. Still a tremendous amp though but out of my price range.
