"Princeton is king"

I waited six months to write about this amp as to really evaluate it fairly. First off this has helped me gig with a damaged back ,I can no longer lift the mighty twin. Funny enough my twin never went past 4, but strangely either does this Princeton, it's a mighty beast! I play in a 4 piece band , really a trio with a harp player and my fear was no way it would keep up with drummer, and AmPeg 450 watt bass player. Wrong I'm on top and never drowned out at all with head room to spare. I use it in conjunction with pedal board and we play country, blues, classic rock and some actual metal, Motörhead cover, guess which one? Man this sucker has passed my expectations totally and yes I gave it a four but the only way I give five star is if it gives o.gasms lol. It practically does.. Reverb sweet I never breach 3, tremelo sweet use it sparingly but very tasty, responsive to touch as described, I've only played my hot rod custom mim strat plus with floyd and rio grande pic ups hss. That guitar surpasses my American and has a very versatile array of tones. I can't believe I haven't tryed my lp but soon and I'm sure it will cook! This amp is easy easy just plug your stuff dial in simple easy mostly treb, less on bass as she's bassey for such a small thing. I got scared the other night with some sound cutting out but it was the stupid cable, worried a bit because just added three pedals to my board. I'm sorry to go off subject, but really if you like loud, light , fender sound, versatile with pedals this baby is great. I tryed the hot rod and supersonic first, hot rod to loud, supersonic was to laden with popping switches too bad I wanted that thing in theory, but in the end I got what I need, good tone light package, band able. I heard a sane that goes if your bands too loud for a Princeton your bands too loud, I'm a believer. I had all the Marshall stack stuff 100 watt stuff and really never got to play them to their full tonal potential because of volume issues, I mean you want to hear the vocals right? Well really want you folks to know that this amp is a worthy contender to the stage and studio and I love it! Keep it real, keep it fender! Rock on peeps.
