    There is a Nissan Frontier commercial with a really cool song on it that has to be some type of Fender amp. It has that Indie rock n' roll type sound.

    It just got me thinking about how I never really owned any Fender type amps.

    What is your favorite?

    Of those I've played, the Tone King Comet is the best Fender amp not made by Fender. :D

    It has to be my 1969 JBL loaded Twin that was blackfaced by Uncle Spot. It's simply put, a pure amplifier IMHO. Running JAN Philips 7581A's and Mullard/RCA preamp tubes from KCA.

    If your lower back can handle it, a Super Reverb, with the right speakers, is pretty hard to beat....IMHO.

    Toss-up between the '62 Blonde Bassman and the Super Reverb.

    1) Blackface Deluxe Reverb. Accept NO substitutes.

    2) Brownface Vibrolux.

    I played a 1966 Vibrolux 2x10 with RCA tubes yesterday. I think it wins.:eek:

    So what are the right speakers...??

    Alnicos or Ceramics...??Original vintage or replacement speaks???

    I have heard some Supers sound great with ceramics until they were pushed beyond 6 when they got harsh...but have never played one with stock alnicos...

    Chow,

    Hands down...my '61 brown Deluxe has the tone of the gods. Thick, creamy, rich tone at sane volume levels.

    They're all so different, but I found a few stellar examples of the following ...

    Blackface Deluxe Reverb

    Blackface Vibroluxe Reverb

    Brown Concert

    Tweed Bassman

    Never heard a tweed Deluxe that floored me but I think the sound is in there somewhere. Going to try putting a kit together and playing with it when I get some time.
