    Princeton Reverb

    My modded PR. Big Allen power transformer. Dr. Z output transformer. Phase inverter mod puts it at an even 20 watts output. 12" Celestion speaker. Tiltbacks. Bunch of cap changes. At 20 watts, it's as gigable as a Deluxe, but with a much nicer Vibrate-Oh!. There are several of these floating around on stages in the Cleveland/Akron area.

    it is a beauty and looks pristine- you use that for studio work?
    Princetons are a bit rich for my blood though- but a really rich tone.

    Very nice HDX. Very nice.
    What's wrong with jibber-jabber? Some of my best stuff is jibber-jabber.

    dB,
    As I mentioned on another thread, I got most of my stuff years ago, before prices got too high. I paid around $400 for this PR 5 or 6 years ago. The Allen power x-former wasn't cheap, but offers a lot of options tube-wise. It can handle 6L6, and KT66 tubes easily. I don't think that PT is still available. My tech buddy also installed bias trim pots. I personally know of four of these he built for friends, and I know he built a couple/three more. The phase inverter mod (might be the "Stokes" mod) is a really simple, and cheap, way to almost double the output power of these little screamers. And they're small enough to fit on the passenger side floorboard! And they have a real nice sounding Vibrate-Oh! circuit! Not the "roach" found in most Fenders. So it's a great Fender amp, with nice Fender Reverb and Vibrate-Oh!

    Yeah it is crazy how expensive stuff has gotten lately- that said nobody is buying at those prices because the economy is in the (reverb) tank. I think we really had a bad bubble with musical instrument collection speculation.

    If you turn it to 9, do you get Vibrate-oh-oh-oh?

    "If you turn it to 9, do you get Vibrate-oh-oh-oh?"

    I think you get "The Brown Sound!"
