    Which one has the best classic Fenderish sound?
    i can't try any of the higher models because none of the stores has it in my country.
    The 57 twin-amp suppose to be amazing, but is doesn't have reverb, and Fender+reverb = MUST!
    The Vibro-king suppose to have the best reverb, but it's ss rectifire, and i'm a sucker for tube rectifire.
    so what d'ya say?
    thanks.

    57 twin + good reverb pedal = a thing of great beauty!

    57 Twin, and add a little delay.

    It depends which era you prefer for the "classic Fenderish sound."

    The 57 Twin will sound very different than a 65 Twin, or other black face era amps.

    If by "classic fender fender sound" you mean blackface era, then go in that direction. You can buy a boutique amp based on Fender with point to point wiring for close to what a Fender printed circuit board re-issue amps cost. A Fender custom shop point to point amp could cost up to $ 4k. If you're ok with a printed circuit amp, the "Blues Deluxe/ Blues Deville" series are very reasonable in price and sound close to the blackface. These are very available these days on the used market, and the biggest drawback is the speaker(s), which many people replace

    "Classic" new Fender? Reissue Super Reverb. Best period? Vibro-King. I've owned old Fenders decades ago...Twin Reverb, '51 Deluxe, Vibroverb.
    More recently I've owned a reissue Bassman, reissue Super Reverb, reissue Deluxe Reverb, reissue '57 Deluxe, '64 Vibroverb Custom and a Vibro-King. I currently only have the Vibro-King...it's definitely a stellar amp.
