But I agree, the Twin is not what you want. Great amps but they weigh a ton and really have way too much power.
Thanks, that was my point. Today you can get great tone in a small package thats easy to transport. Need more? go thru the PA.
Free speech...its' not for everybody

Thanks to all for the great suggestions! I'll definitely give the Deluxe Reverb and Bugera V22 a try and go from there.

I'd look at the Katana stuff. Really good value for the money and LOUD. I like the idea of a Princeton, but I would worry about clean headroom. If you are into modeling, the v2 Fender Mustang GT stuff looks promising.

They say that tone is in the fingers....I say it is in your head.

Hmm. I always thought it was the 65 Princeton Reverb or reissue.

I have 2 vintage Deluxe Reverbs and 2 vintage Princeton Reverbs and I can gig with any of them for the average bar gig. With an efficient speaker a PR is a perfect grab and go amp. I have a 12" Eminence Red Fang alnico in my 1969 PR and it is glorious and loud enough for complaints from the bass player! For $500 or less a used Hot Rod Deluxe is a great amp, and the Peavey Classic 30 or Delta Blues amps are fabulous also.

I can vouch for the Hot Rod. I have a USA made DeVille 410. I paid around 500 used. The clean channel and the reverb is very nice. It has a an overdrive channel that is pretty good too. But this amp is only a couple of pounds lighter then than the Twin Reverb I used to own. You might find a Hot Rod Deluxe 3 more to taste. It has a single 12" speaker.
Just another old fart who plays guitar. I got a lot of Seagulls and a Martin. I love them all. Some more than others. Currently training the musicians triathalon; Guitar, Bass & Drums.
