Just got my Deluxe back from service and it sounds incredible now. I was using a Princeton Reverb for home but this thing just sounds so huge in comparison, I can never go back.

I use the same thing for practice and gigs.
I want to be as familiar with my gear as possible. Using the same gear helps with that.

Wish I could. Left my amp at the practice space and some numbnut plugged the speaker cable into the heads fx loop when I wasn't around.
Came to practice and all volume knobs were on 10! It would have peeled paint off the wall. Someone said "Hey, we couldn't get your amp to work."
Totally fried it. :FM

Nice rig, OP!

I usually just play whatever I want but, some days ago I used only this to study some tunes:

Wow, thats terrible. Sorry to hear that!

Amp companies need to build in an 'ignition' like a car: only the amp's owner, with a set of keys, can start the amp up!

If I bring my SFDR, its not too bad lugging my rig for every practice or gig.
My Mesa is another story - I can't decide if I like it as a head and 112 or a combo (more pieces to lug vs one ridiculously heavy piece of gear).

I like that, and feel the same way. I don't gig anymore, but I used to take a 58' tweed Deluxe. I love that amp, but I just can't turn it up to where it needs to be at home :beer The original speaker from that amp is in the Deluxe Reverb now. It's old and tired and not very loud. It allows me to goose the amp a little more for playing at low volume at home. Sounds great to me.

Nice!
My DR has a sweet spot as a pretty clean platform between 3-4 on the volume knob. For quieter and louder playing, my Mesa does the trick (sounds good at any volume).

If companies start using my 'amp ignition' idea, does this forum count as a 'poor man's patent'? Lol

If I ever get a new amp, I think its going to be an SF Princeton Reverb.
No i dont think so haha, better get to work on that patent, or at least delete your post before someone sees it

Do it! The silverface princeton reverbs are amazing deals for the money they go for. Very little difference between silverface and blackface. The pull boost ones are really good deals. You can easily take the boost out of the circuit and then you have a regular sf pr. Theres one for sale on my local CL for 800 right now

Love it....now all we need is something that prevents people from using your amp as a coaster.

Haha, even if I don't make a penny, I'd be proud knowing I had a useful idea.

Oh man, your enforcing bad ideas that will get me a kick in the nugs from my girlfriend.

Hmm, for that one, I'm imagining a robotic arm that just slaps the sh*t out of any drunkard who comes within 3 feet. Not to mention, it would be hilarious.
[A car alarm might work too, staying with that theme]

When I'm at home I pretty much practice with this:

My Danelectro Hodad(90's reissue one, and also my first bass) into an Orange CR25BX. If I could I would use my stack all the time haha, but when I can't this serves my needs just fine and sounds pretty good.

Wow nice JP! I plan to have a collection of princeton's in different era such as brown and tweed one day. Theyre my favorite amps. I dont play big gigs, and when i jam its with an electronic drumset drummer so it holds up fine

Do you run those in stereo?

I haven't yet! It's been awhile since I pissed off the neighbors, so maybe it's time
