    So who makes a great version or clone of the most popular Fender amps? The Twin Reverb, Deluxe Reverb, Bassman(head), and whatever else I forgot.

    I'm partial to Allen Amps, but there are lots of great builders out there.

    Heard lots of positive comments on the Fargen Blackbird. I hope they're true, I have a 6v6 Blackbird on order.:hiP

    I'd have to go with the Tone King Meteor II 2x12 cab w/head that I have. It's probably more similar to a Pro Reverb than a Deluxe although I can cut it from 40 to 20 watts.

    Headstrong in North Carolina - great blackface & 63 brownface tone to be had there - all in original speaker offerings plus non-orig. speaker offerings and head's too in most all models - Princeton/DR/SR/Vibroverb clones - Wayne Jones is a nice guy on the phone & email, he's been known to put standby switchs on Princeton clones, little things like that, if you ask - quality stuff from a qulity guy.

    I'm not an experienced Fender amp guy, but the Richter 5E3 was pretty cool and the price was right.

    So how about a 'bang for buck' suggestion and a 'money's no object' suggestion, if you've played that many...

    Find a used Rivera, ridiculously underpriced (way less than everything already mentioned)
    and play through Channel 2.

    Excellent Fender blackface tones coming from an amp that's built like a tank
