Hello, I've been offered a '61 Ampeg Jet J12-D. The amp it's in good conditions, doesn't have the original 12" speaker but a '70s jensen replacement, otherwise it looks pretty original (apart from the leather handle). It even has original GE tubes. I'm looking for some low wattage amp to play small gigs or use for studio recordings, that could be cranked for some gutsy overdrive on tap while at decent volumes (I already have an early 80's champ which it's just 5w that sounds good but it's not really enough for me...) to hold his own on a small club. I was originally looking for something like a Princeton Reverb or a Deluxe Reverb (although it's 22w, the J12-D it's 15w and it makes a lot of difference), but this Ampeg seems like a good deal. Any of you guys plays/have/have had some vintage Ampeg? This one doesn't have a reverb, but it comes with a vibrato (kind of different from the fender ones though, as it doesn't have speed control...). I'd really love to hear what you guys think. I've always had pretty good reviews about vintage Ampegs (Jets and Reverbrockets, although it was more for the clean sound than the cranked up sound..), but never owned one so I couldn't tell... Could you compare the J12-D to some kind of Fenderish sound? Thanks.
