This is a very interesting amp. Obviously, it's not a clone of a Silverface Princeton, but a modern interpretation of one. It's a lot darker-sounding that an original (or the '65 reissue) and distorts much more quickly and musically than one. Depending on your application that could be a good or bad thing but if you are looking for this type of a package than leans more toward the tweed sound, or even non-master volume Marshall tonality, this is worth looking at. That's the type of tone I wanted so it is a perfect fit, clocking in at just the right size, weight, and power output for my needs. Of note, this amp takes pedals extraordinarily well. From the bit of research that I did before buying it seems that this was a primary intent when Fender designed this amp, and they certainly have achieved what they were going for. It really lets the character of everything you plug into shine through, from different guitars to different pedals/pedal order. It's extremely touch-sensitive and responds almost surprisingly well to changes of the guitar volume knob. The internal reverb is classic Fender and just as good as it gets. The onboard vibrato is a nice addition and one of my favorites with clean tones...which, I should add are wonderful with this amp. No, it's in no way a Blackface clean, or Silverface for that matter, but the amp is undeniably Fender and you can easily dial in amazing clean tones that break up beautifully with a little volume. Build quality is a step above the average modern Fender amp, like a Hot Rod or Bassbreaker. I suppose that is a reflection of the relatively higher price point but it is worth mentioning because I've owned "boutique" amps that were not as well-built as this Princeton. I'd go so far as to say it represents quite a bargain for what you get for the money. Last thing I will mention is the speaker. It was an inspired choice to go with a Celestion in these amps, and they perfectly match the vibe and overall tone of the amp.
