    I love fender cleans, and other tube amps just don't work for me, i have loved every fender i've had over the years... It seems a lot of people here like a variety, but I am boring and just want that clean headroom sparkle with reverb
    i wonder what percentage here only does fender and fender style boutique amps

    I used to only play fender. When i was a kid and my super champ was all i had.
    Or when my other amps were locked up in storage and all i had out was my 65 deluxe (real).
    Or when i felt like it.
    Besides that, i can play my gig on anything tube.

    I only have Fender amps now. I have had Mesa, Dr Z, Marshall, and Peavey amps in the past.

    Once you have a solid clean tone it’s easy to find a complimentary pedal, and it seems like so many dirt pedals are designed with Fender amps in mind. The reverb and trem are also great. That being said, I am really close to pulling the trigger on a Marshall Studio Vintage.

    That's me. I currently have a 68 drip edge Princeton reverb, a 67 Vibrochamp
    and a JTM45 clone with 6l6s housed in a 1 12 cab.

    I’ve never owned a Marshall but played some at rehearsals and never bonded. Now I don’t play loud enough to need one

    Guilty. I have a nice DRRI that I've modded a bit, a Super Champ X2, and recently bought a slightly used Clark Beaufort 5e3 tweed. The Alnico Blue in it is nice and broken in. Both the DR and 5e3 can be attenuated. Or not.

    At this point (after major sell-off) I am down to only fender (and fender clone) amps
    Bassman LTD
    Princeton Reverb
    and a tweed deluxe clone

    Guilty. One is a SF (Allen BF convert) 73 DR and four tweeds from various manufacturers (Magic 5e3 Deluxe, Clark 5f4 (Super), CS Fender 5e8a (LPTT), and Victoria 45410 (Bassman)). Nothing sounds the same despite the Fender circuit lineage.

    2 real Fenders - '76 DR and a '66 pro reverb, a clone - 5e3 home brew, and a couple kind of related, an early '70s Sho Bud Tube Twin and a Suhr Bella.
    bought a '74 twin new, and a Rivera era concert new in '84.
    I just generally find my sound in Fender or close amps.

    My tone home is Blackface Fender amps.

    I own and sometimes play other brands/types of amps but I always come back around to BF Fender type amps before too long.

    I currently have these BF Fender amps:

    1) BF Princeton Reverb replica I built last year

    2) BF Princeton non-reverb head I built many years ago

    3) BF Vibrolux Reverb replica I built many years ago

    4) Four BF Fender Bandmaster heads

    5) A '66 BF Fender Bassman head

    6) '66 and '67 BF Fender Showman heads

    I just picked up a new and unloaded BF Tremolux type 2x10 speaker cab---- I loaded it with two '67 Eminence 10" square magnet 8 ohm speakers I had laying around and tried it out with a '64 Blonde Blackface Bandmaster head and a '65 BF Bandmaster head earlier today.

    I liked the '65 Bandmaster head a little better---- the little 2x10 cab with the old Eminence speakers gives me the clean headroom I want and also sounds wonderful with my old TS9 and delay.

    For this new band project I'm trying to not use a 4x12 cab and still get the coverage and clean headroom I want with my moderately loud drummer.

    The 2x10 cab set-up is going to work out nicely for this and be easier to carry around.

    That particular '65 Bandmaster is a very sweet sounding one and is a good match with the old Eminence 10" speakers.

    I'm happy--- :cool::cool::cool:

    These days a Deluxe Reverb clone and a DLS MkIII give me the best of both worlds.

    From a recent rehearsal.
