1 DCBirdMan 1 month ago Really talking 2 Fender combos here-- you know which ones -- Princeton and Deluxe. Of course the reverb versions sell for more but where do you draw the line and say "I'll just use a [insert your fave reverb pedal] instead" (which for me is an Holy Grail Nano even tho Flerb holds zero sonic appeal ) Onboard tube spring reverb is still super important to some players, and others don't care and some want different types of reverb other than spring. I hear there is a tiny, lost tribe of players who don't want any reverb but this ain't about them. Just wondering if say a clean silver panel Princeton is $X and am eqivalent reverb version is $X + X %, is there some point where you just say forget it and buy the cheaper amp w/ a reverb added in externally. For me reverb is still associated with the amp enough that I hardwire/ fasten the pedal to the top of the amp, since it's always on. Also would take some study, but would be interesting to know if the going reverb vs. non reverb price differential is really the same for Princeton and Deluxe. And further, if silver panels including the short lived faux black panel ones, were over by I think 1982 -- does anyone remember if the non reverb versions were offered right to to the end, or faded a few years earlier?
