I have a shot at a nice local mint 35310 at a good price. I am somewhat in the Blackface camp, but like more mids (spent years with a Super reverb with the mid control between 7 and 9!). I have tried smaller 5E3 types and found them to be lacking in the headroom that I want. I love the Overdrive I get from my buddy's Bassman LTD, but the clean didn't quite have the clarity and highs that I wanted (it was really close, though!) For the past year I have been giggin with an Alessandro Rottweiler and love it. It's just the right mix of great fender cleans, and organic natural breakup. I played the Vicky and it seems to be what I am looking for, great cleans that have more highs than most tweed based amps I have tried (still has great depth and tight bottom that I miss with some BF amps) but will get into natural tube saturation and overdrive at lower volumes than the Basssman and a '57 Tweed Twin I tried in a store. I think I might get it unless you guys can talk me out of it. Any negatives or issues that I should be wary of? BTW, it's a mid-90s model. I also heard that the cab size was changed somewhere along the way. Early ones supposedly used a smaller "correct to bandmaster specs" sized cab and the new ones use a larger can (same size as the bassman version). Does anyone know when this shift occured and what the differences in size/weight might be? Oh yeah... if you can comment on pedal compatability, it would help alot... I gig in small club cover band so most times my OD will come from pedals. Currently using a Keeley TS9 and Barber Direct Drive. Thanks!
