I love my Silverface Princeton, and Bandmaster's
Whats your fav?
Low Powered Tweed Twin
I like Tweed
Anything tweed is good, but my all-time fav was a blonde showman through a vintage marshall cab with a Les Paul and klon to boost it up. Wow!!! What a rock tone!!!
I currently own all original 1965 Deluxe Reverb, Pro Peverb and Twin reverb. Man, it's hard to choose because they sound great. I also like the old tweed Deluxe.
In the studio: 65' Deluxe Reverb
At home: 66' Princeton Reverb
Blackface Super Reverb!
Custom Shop Dual Professional
MY '68 Bassman head and '78 Deluxe reverb of course. The '65 Vibrochamp I lent to a former band mate and junkie was pretty cool last time I saw it - 10 years ago.
Deluxe Reverb and Pro Reverb.
Blackface DR's hands down
High Power tweed twin
I've played pretty much everything Fender made in the tweed, blonde and BF eras.
Here's a list of only what I've owned:
'51 TV-front Deluxe
High-Power Twin (repro)
Super Reverb (2)
Dual Showman Reverb
Deluxe Reverb (3)
For blackface, the Super Reverb is the keeper. For tweed, the High-Power tweed twin is the keeper, for the blonde era it's the Twin (or a Showman) and for grab-and-go, it's the Princeton Reverb.
Everything else is gone, and other than for the sake of "collectability" they do not match up to the keepers.
single ended 6V6 tweeds.
Mid-60's Pro or Super Reverb.
Toss up between 4 hole Bassman and high powered Twin.
+1 for BF Super Reverb!
For home use and recording, I really like my '65 Princeton Reverb. It makes guitars sound the way that they should.
For gigging, I don't know if I have a preference and it really depends on my volume needs. I think Deluxe Reverbs are at a good wattage/volume point for live work.
How can you choose?
I like the Brown Deluxe and Silver champ. Those are the two I own.
I'd like to have a BF Vibrolux or Super Reverb.
I'd like to have Tweed Bassman, Twin, Pro or Bandmaster.
I'd love to have a Blonde Twin just to look at........sigh
Hell I want em all............
for looks my fave is the 64 (transition - black w/ white barrel knobs and tone control instead of b/t controls iirc) princeton. would love to have one of those and a BFPR. and maybe a brown super.
