I have a Princeton, a Deluxe, a Carvin Nomad...have owned Basman, Twins, Mesa's of various sizes... I recently picked up a Fender Champion 20 for my desk. This thing sounds so good (on the Blackface setting) that I went back to the store and played a champion 40....$200 and it sounds GREAT...if I was buying an amp today, I would save $1000 and get this...solid state did not use to sound this good. My Princeton (with a 12) sounds great but it MUST BE LOUD!!!!
