    I need some Fender Tweed advice.

    I have a:

    '57/'62 Champ (chassis/cab)
    '58 Harvard

    If I were to add one more Tweed era Fender amp, what should I buy?

    I'm not looking to own a closet queen, I would want one to play and to enjoy, even if the condition was questionable.

    (This will be a "someday" purchase since I had to stow my rainy day pennies for a long time to buy these two.)

    how about a tremolux? getting tweed with a bias driven trem going on is a nice combo.

    Twin; low or high-power. One of the sweetest sounding amps ever made, IMO.

    I may have to adjust my post because I don't think I could afford a Tweed Bassman, LOL.

    If you want to stick with 6V6's, then a Deluxe would add a bit of power, and a Vibrolux or Tremolux would add a bit of power and tremolo. If you want something different, then a 6L6 model would be cool. What do you intend to do with it?

    I would look for a Deluxe. They are getting a little pricey though. For short money you can pick up Danelectro's version of a Tweed Deluxe. They are in the $350 range which is damn cheap for a vintage PTP wired amp that frequently come loaded with it's original RCAs. They have mojo, that's for sure.
