    I have one of these with the original spkr never use the channel switching feature mainly because I do not have the pedal to do so. Its still a great amp designed by the late Ed Jahns Perfect for small to gigs sure beats lugging around 80 pounds of twin

    I’ve this amp since 1985. It is a good amp. Unlike the original Princeton, the 2 is a 25 watt amp, and it is pretty loud for its size. Could be used on small gigs and not too heavy or bulky. The Princeton two is a very different amp than its ancestor, designed more as a studio amp, too compete with the Mesa Boogie. It’s not a normal Fender sound, but when the Mid-boost and overdrive are not used, it is also not extremely different than say a Deluxe – tonally speaking. This amp is part of the very last generation of production point-to-point wiring. I have found this to be a reliable amp up until recently – but I’m way late on upkeep, so my bad. Overall a good amp but not an exact norm for the fender line. But the poin-to-point alone makes it valuable for enthusiasts. I have enjoyed this amp more than not.
