    ... a very good OD pedal for a Princeton Reverb is a plain ol' Tube Screamer TS-9. A PR can be mushy and indistinct on the low end due to paraphase inverter design. Using a TS thins a little low end of course and helps minimize the low end squishiness, and gives a useful (in many applications) mid boost for these great little amps. Was playing last night with my PR clone and regular TS9, Just sounds right to me over a pretty good range of volume levels with a Strat Tele, LP etc.....
    that is all. :beer

    Yes, I've always liked the TS9 with small fender amps, although I prefer the TS9DX. I have found in a room that soaks up sound a lot that the PR gets too nasty with any OD in front of it though.
