    Stimmy buy alert.

    Chris Stapleton Princeton. FedEx dropped it off this afternoon. I ended up getting it instead of a Tone Master. Boy am I thrilled with it. What a neat little amp. 12 watts with a 12 inch speaker but doesn't seem as loud as my Class 5 or my Blues Jr. Maybe it's the EQ of the Brownface circuit. But it's so responsive and I love the bias tremolo. It is my second experience with Fender trem - my first was with a 60's Vibro-Champ that I played in a Guitar Center. I'd never understood why guys liked tremolo amps until I played one. It sounds phenomenal even with the "new speaker" sounds. Once she gets broken in she is going to be amazing.

    It really is! Like I know it's a country artist's signature amp, but I was running my Les Paul through it and if you crank it and dig in the little guy rocks in a big way!

    HNAD! :applause:

    Doesn't matter what style of music it's marketed as, most tube amps get pretty pissed off when you push them, and it's easier to push them if they're lower wattage.

    Saw a bunch of Psychobilly bands some years ago and they were all getting glorious tones using various Fender amps along with their Gretsch's. Most only had a preamp pedal in front along with some slap back delay.

    Awe...you f#%&er :applause: Nice choice.

    I was looking into those, but ended up going with the '64 HW version...which still isn't here yet :mad:
    I really wanted that sweet Fender tube driven reverb to pair with that amazing tremolo circuit.

    Haha thanks! Hope you get your '64 soon! Those look really sweet as well. I actually opted for this one for the 12" speaker and for the fact that it was a Brownface. I'd never played a Brownface but I've liked all of the clips I've heard of them. Glad I made the choice I did. I ran her at band rehearsal last night and the other guys liked it. After a couple hours the speaker is sounding a LOT better and I am really digging how the amp responds to playing dynamics.
