    Transistor, 80 watts, two speakers

    The amp me fired from many groups because of its rotten saturation ...
    I must say that I was playing with the era Ibanez Rg 550 japan and Washburn N2! Not really the right combination.
    Today I regret having Aged this amp for its clear sound and I think it was enough to use a crankset for overdrive but 20 pins, i was mowed and pedals worth candy (late 80's, beginning 90).

    SONORITS

    The clean channel was of pure crystal, velvet. The typical grain fender and breathless.

    The saturated channel had a flat curve, sounding transistor and cold. Nothing draw even with guitars mtalleux.

    morality: 5/10

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    A good amp for clean sounds. Very good finish.
    on the other hand ideal for getting fired from a rock band.
    Today I played almost as much as a line 6 which is Superior to marshall N'Gal saturated mode, but not in a fender clean.
    Some words: I see a lot of guy walking around with marshall or fender lamp first prize sonnorit no dynamic or punch.
    Cheers modlisation!

    Full stereo 2x25W Combo transistors

    2 channels (clean / distortion)
    Analog stereo chorus
    Spring Reverb accutronic

    2 HP 10 "

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple configuration.
    It lights up and plays it :-)

    SOUNDS

    A clear crystal as it is unforgettable.
    The chorus is also very interesting because it shows very well while preserving the character of the instrument.
    Mainly suited to jazz as it is.

    on the other hand, it fits well with pedals and multi effects (HP 10 "are finally relatively neutral).

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used 2 years, I think this is a very good quality / price ratio to start and grow but not versatile when used alone, unless you only play the JAZZ.
    I bought it on a whim heart, his sound on my strat really emerged over what I had heard tube amp included.
    If I could afford to have several amps I'll probably guarded.

  • 2X10 With Chorus and some Punch!

    Fender Princeton ChorusPublished on 09/18/12 at 15:26
    The Princeton Chorus series are, (since the 80's), solid-state amps with ample power and very well rounded speakers.
    You are given the standard two input option common on many Fender Amps. Also you have both a mono and stereo FX loop, foot switch jack and a headphone output.
    The model that I own, (approx. '90), delivers 125 solid state watts of power and is plenty enough to compete with much more powerful and larger amps.
    On your clean channel you have volume, bass, mid, treble, and reverb controls.
    On the distorted channel you have gain, limiter, presence, and volume controls as well as a mid boost switch.
    Then you have the chorus settings which includes a rate and a depth control.

    On the distorted channel you have gain, limiter, presence, and volume controls as well as a mid boost switch.
    Then you have the chorus settings which includes a rate and a depth control.
    One odd thing about the way this amp works is that the clean channel EQ section and the reverb control remain in use when you switch over to the distortion channel. This makes both the mid boost switch and the presence control in the distortion section very important if you intend to use the onboard distortion channel. I would personally suggest staying on the clean channel all the time and using an external distortion pedal or multi-effects board.
    The chorus is pretty good overall being a very limited and cheap factory installed ho-hum chorus. The reverb is your typical spring reverb and it...well...it's reverb.


    UTILIZATION

    The Princeton Chorus's 2 10in. speakers provide quite an unexpected amount of very well defined low-end. When I first got mine I was very impressed with how well it sounded live and how well it recorded, especially with palm-mute, chunky, distorted guitar sounds. It also has a great clean tone.
    Of course, your choice in instrument will always have a rediculous effect on the overall sound of your amp. I've used a Fender Telecaster, PRS soapbarII, Epiphone Les Paul, Harmony Stratotone, and various other accoustics and electric guitars with the Princeton Chorus and have always been able to get a good sound from it.
    Surpisingly, on a few very low-key quiet gigs I've even plugged my guitar and a microphone into my princeton and gotten away with a decent sound with no PA! I don't really recommend this by any means I just thought that it is an interesting thing to point out, food for thought as it were.
    Having purchased mine used, I never had a manual but I really can't see how the manual for this amp would be either incomplete or lacking.

    SOUNDS

    As I stated above, I've used many, many different guitars with this amp, ranging from really vintage sounding ones to very modern sounding ones. I've never been dissapointed.
    The Princeton Chorus really shines in the lower mid-range. It also has a very sufficient low-end growl and punch but, the highs aren't what i would call "brilliant". Overall, it seems that the frequency response kind of drops off above 6kHz. This is nothing that can't be remedied by a good multi-effects processor/pre-amp though.
    If you are fond of a very milky, very mid-rangy type of tone, then with the right guitar this amp will certainly fit the bill.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Don't buy this amp new or used for the chorus effect. Buy this amp because the factory 10in. speakers are of very good quality, and the 125watt solid state amp holds it's own very well and is also of good quality. I've had mine for many years now, driven it until it screamed for mercy, put it through the torture of "the road", and all I've ever needed to do was clean the dust off and clean and lubricate the pots every now and then. It's been a reliable workhorse for me for a long time.
    The Princeton Chorus has a somewhat muted, low-end heavy, robust mid-range tone that makes me tend towards classifying it as having a somewhat vintage sound. Yet, don't be fooled, with the right multi-effects processor or whatever you prefer, you can coax some very sharp, tight, modern sounds from it.

    I'd wanted this amp for a long time because I'm a sucker for that clean fender tone. I bought it used at Music-go-round in Minneapolis for only $250. The condition was perfect.

    It has a great clean tone, plus the chorus for super sweet rhythm playing. It is powerful enough for recording and practice (which is all I use it for) and sounds great with my Fender Jaguar. The controls are clear and easy to use. The chorus works on both channels and has a very nice quality to it. For a solid state it has a nice warm sound.

    I hate moving it up and down stairs. But mainly, the distortion channel is useless for more than weak fuzz. I'm looking into adding a nice modeling Amp to my......

    I hate moving it up and down stairs. But mainly, the distortion channel is useless for more than weak fuzz. I'm looking into adding a nice modeling Amp to my collection but I don't want to get rid of the Princeton for that genuine fender tone.

    It's built well, but I wish it was easier to move around. The knobs are solid and don't jiggle. I never buy an amp with loose knobs (like a crate). Of course it's got the classic fender look, which is nice as well.

    Bottom line: If you play jazz or just want a great clean sound for rhythm/experimental sounds this is a great investment. No death metal here kids. Sorry.

    I got this amp new for $299 at Hermis Music.

    This amp can do amost any thing. and it packs alot of suprises. First of all the power...oh the power. I played an outdoor gig and i completely over powered a Line 6 Flextone and an 80 watt marshall. And those amps cost like twice as much. Second is the tone. The clean tone is perfect for you softer songs with little or no distortion at top volumes. The overdrive channel gives u great distortion with a thick power tone. and it gives u great harmonics. When u add the onboard chorus to iether the clean or overdrive its just makes it all that better. I would put my Fender Princeton Chorus up aganst any same class Amp out their.

    I bought this amp from a friend who owns a video store and also carries guitars and accessories.He sold it to me for $250.

    It is a durable well constructed quality amp. Its got a killer wide range of tone.
    its a wonderful practice/small gig amp.

    Its a nice sized amp at about 38 lbs.but it is not much more than a practice amp.I turn the volume up to 5 and worry if the speakers are going to blow.

    it is a vey very durable well constructed amp.

    its not as good as a crate 2-12 but it is a wonderful amp.

    Pro Sound, paid 409.00



    Nice and small for use in the house. good tone and sound at low voulumes. Very good response and great clean sound.


    Nothing so far

    pretty good not as good as they used to be.



    If you like to play and want a good practice amp and don't have alot of $ to spend on one this is it! I played all the amps under $600 ( crate, line 6, Marshall) and they all sound sterile. This one makes me want to play more on all settings not twist knobs looking for a acceptable sound

    To start, I had this amp a long time ago (in the 80's!), So I do not remember all the details, but no one has an opinion post, I wanted to give the mine is always ca ;-)

    Stereo amplifier transistors. 2x30W power (it means it develops in stereo 30W, 60W not !!!).
    Book with a footswitch 2 contacts for passing on the saturated channel and activate the chorus. 2 Front Input, but sharing the same channel (one can not assign a guitar on the clean channel and the other on the channel saturates).

    The amp features a chorus of good quality which is more effective than the amp is stereo!

    UTILIZATION

    I do not remember having had a manual with the amp. I must say that its use is very simple! Nothing special in this regard.

    I really used this amp at home. When I started playing in groups, power was quickly revealed insufficient and I had to change.

    SOUNDS

    The clean sounds are quite beautiful. I remember the sounds were not saturated by great cons. I must say that I changed it to an amp lamps, then necessarily, the distorted sounds have nothing to do! This amp should be compared with other amplifier transistors to be honest, I can not do.

    I chose this amp the time to play pop like Dire Straits, Goldman ... I had the time a Start and an Ibanez Roadstar 2. I loved the sound crystal clear that I could get with the stratum. I tried Marshall and Peavy the time, but the sound was more aggressive and I did not try that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used this amp for several years. He had the advantage of being light weight (compared amp lamps that I bought then!), To have beautiful clean sounds. As against the distorted sounds really left to desire! The Integra was very beautiful chorus.

    What changed my amp, is lack of power! A 5 in a shed, we could not hear me! Otherwise I have very fond memories of this amp ...
    I do not know the new version they did (based on DSP I think). There was also the time of memory, a more powerful version, but always transistors!

    Now I know the sound of the amp lights and it's hard to go back! But as a studio amp, I highly recommend. In addition to the quality of multi effects available on the market today, we should find some beautiful sounds saturated.
