    I'd expect the same impact that the DRRI had on the originals......essentially none.

    The originals will continue to appreciate, while the reissues depreciate from day 1. They will be fine "disposable" working amps at a reasonable price.

    Thought about getting one but I'm not sure if I should just get another Super Champ XD instead for half the price (BTW, I have 2 SF PRs and a BF DR).

    There is no hard info yet, but the rumors say $799, PCB, 10". I hope it's not 12 watts like the original which would relegate it to bedroom/recording only. Should be out within 60 days.

    I gig with a Princeton. If they made it more than 12 watts, it wouldn't be a reissue.

    Shane Nicholas from Fender says that they debuted the new PRRI at the recent amp show in NY/NJ. He says they will be in stores by end of June early July. More of this can be found at the FDP.

    I just talked to Fender and the guy said it will be officially launched at the June NAMM show. He didn't have any info on specs/price. I am sure someone knows though.

    If you need more than 12 watts the Deluxe Reverb is the next step up.

    There's a brief review of it in the NY Show summary here. Dude HATED it! Said it was mushy and fluffy or something. Must hate cats, too.

    Sorry to hijack, but how does a PR sound with a les Paul?

    Poor disrespected PRs being hidden behind the more impressive VOX towers. They're probably putting out all the amp duties via mic to PA.

    I either laughed or choked... depends on whether or not you were serious.

    I played thru the new PR at the amp show last weekend. it's along the lines of the vibrolux and deluxe reverb reissues, so they are not handwired like the originals.

    I dug it with a tele. nice surfy reverb and tremelo/vibrato too.

    it has a jensen 10'', wish they had an optional 12. I spoke with Shane, he said these are made in the USA.

    I dug the amp, but those who have their vintage pieces, I see no threat ;)
