-Livingroom-'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" My god he is rock ..."

Fender Princeton (Silverface)
12w tube combo, a 2-band equalization, tremolo, volume, two inputs and that's all.


Difficult to get any easier as amp, the higher up the volume, the more saturated and acting on eq we pass a clicking sound to a dark sound, but rarely amusical.


To all styles from blues, rock, punk and why not jazz, it has its place. It's the sound fender, but the lack of reverb makes it even more "Burne". It is very "pedal-friendly", which achieves more greedy gain styles, while keeping a good musical (well, if the effects are worth it!).

It's not my possession, so I'm using it exclusively in the studio, where it is very useful.


I use it regularly for 3 years, for a small combo like that, it may seem expensive, but the sound is there. A beautiful power in such a small space, today is hard to find, and it is very strong. I tried a lot of fender, and compared with a control for instance, I find it much more varied in sound, and richer too. Too bad that it is so rare secondhand!

A switch on the back and a red diamond loupiote (I thought that diamonds were transparent)
Weight: 12Kg
Approximate year between 1970 and 1972


Is lit, it heats to zero volume 2 minutes and it's ready.
No need to book, the sound is clear and precise net until 7 It is clear sound FENDER.


Its exceptional! it's not for nothing that Fender made re-issues of black face and silver face was nothing better in 50 years. There is a sound that can soften with the Tremolo. It is perfect for the quality that simplicity.


I use it for 3 months (800 € OCCAZ) at home. Without sounding pretentious I tried all Fender models: field, deluxe reverb, Vibrolux, hotrod, blues junior, Prosonic, twin reverb and majesty Bassman only missing the vibroking and Super Reverb ... but 4Hp having had the good face at concerts I imagine. ALL these amps are amazing and it's big plus is good .. No mystery, lamps and transformers it's heavy, it's expensive!
Do not mince words, FENDER made the most beautiful clear sounds of the world, and p'is it's all !!!
I particularly appreciate the weight of this amp and low power that can play at home without tearing or back or leaves. A reasonable volume but also a store of headroom as the saying rosebeef. We put a tube screamer or cleanboost before and the sound is louder, without compressing or saturate, just as if you had to mount the volume. It is significant to fine-tune his pedalboard at home. However, the sound is a little more "DARK" than a Deluxe or that a Twin, but it also comes from HP (seems that a WEBER sounds clearer but loses severe). Finally a good portion of its clear that household Fender tone your back and leaves). Good value for the vintage report.

Popsyman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Princeton (Silverface)
Vintage tube amp with reverb and vibrato 15watts.
SETTINGS features: volume, treble, bass, reverb, speed and intensity.
Ability to control the reverb and vibrato with a footswitch connected to cinch the back of the amp.


Not difficult to find a sound.
It is a 15 watt tube, resulting in a high power that can play live in small place.
not need manual.


It has its fender.
One side very well defined lens and a vintage lamp very strong side.
You can play with the natural saturation by pushing the volume beyond 60%, but watch out for neighbors and ears.


I use it for 5 years and I do not regret this purchase.
This is a great amp to play at home or repeating, not too heavy to carry with her to hell and pretty Polivalente.
Feel free to add your own effects to customize your sound.
