Fender '62 Princeton Chris Stapleton Guitar Tube Combo Amplifier (12 Watts, 1x12")

With a vintage Fender sound plus custom features and enhancements, the '62 Princeton Chris Stapleton amp delivers powerful tone in a straightforward package.
The Fender "Brownface" '62 Princeton amp's sensitivity and smooth organic tremolo made it a longtime studio favorite and the ideal partner for Grammy-winning country artist, Chris Stapleton. The hand-wired '62 Princeton Chris Stapleton Edition combines the classic 6G2 circuit with Stapleton's favorite features and personally chosen aesthetic touches.

Hear Chris explain the story behind his signature Princeton:


This 12W combo features Fender Vintage "Blue" tone caps, Schumacher transformers, an upgraded Eminence 12" Special Design "CS" speaker, and an output tube-biased tremolo circuit. The acoustically resonant solid pine cabinet wears rough brown textured vinyl covering, wheat grille cloth and thick dark brown leather handle, while the dark brown control panel sports dark brown "radio" knobs and the rear panel features an engraved brass plate with Chris Stapleton artwork. Includes 1-button switch for tremolo and retro-styled Filson heavy fabric cover.

"My perfect amp."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This amp sounds incredible. It sounded a little stiff at first, but after a few hours, it really came alive. The tube tremolo is outstanding and I use it more than I thought I would. I thought I would miss reverb, but I don't. It takes pedals well...if you want to use them...it sounds so good, you might end up selling your pedals. It's a very simple amp, but not in a bad way. The handwired 12 watts is perfect for me. You can turn it up enough so it sounds good at home, but you can also play gigs with a drummer without any issues. I was surprised how much headroom the amp had. I would highly recommend this amp unless you're looking to play hard rock/ heavy medal.
Musical Background:
I've been playing guitar for about 15 years.
Musical Style:
Blues, classic rock, jam, some country.
