I had been looking around for a good quality amp that had great clean tones and a warm clear tone mostly for jazz. I'd looked at the Henrikson Blue (solid-state, not sold by LM) which has excellent reviews but also pretty pricey. So I looked to a tube amp for the first time, This Fender Princeton Reverb RI the with CR speaker really caught my eye. I did a direct comparison with the "standard" Princeton, a Traynor YGL1 and YGL2, Vox AC30, a Fender Blues Jr 4, and a couple of others... This model, especially with the Cannabis Rex speaker, really stood out for warm clean tones at livingroom playable levels, which is what I needed. (Cranked up over 5-6 it will start to distort a bit if that's want) It's very touch sensitive, responsive without any "boominess" I had with my Fender G-Dec 30. It does have a really nice reverb and tremolo on a footswitch, but I usually just set the reverb on 2-3 and leave it. the CR speaker really does make a terrific difference. It would be nice to have 1/8 " input jack for an mp3 player or phone to play backing tracks over, but I realize it's a traditional amp without frills, so I can live with it. I've had it a couple of months and overall I'm really pleased with it. You won't be disappointed!

I’ve had a PRRI in the past with the 10” Jensen and it was ok, but I ended up trading it back in for another amp, so I was hesitant to go for another PRRI again, but this one is different. The speaker change is a real upgrade and makes a big difference. Nice Fender blackface cleans, lots of headroom, and breaks up nicely when you get the volume up there past 6 on the dial. And don’t judge a book by the cover, yes it’s only 15 watts, one channel, one speaker, but it’s a LOUD 15 watts, single speaker little combo. It will surprise you, and the sound man at your next gig won’t hate you, and your back will thank you that you don’t gig with an AC30 or Twin! Nice looks with the lacquer tweed, comes with a nice original style Fender Chrome footswitch for the reverb and tremolo/vibrato, and nice Fender amp cover. Try one out, you’ll probably take it home with you. Bonus that even with the upgraded 12” Eminence speaker, it’s still the same price as the regular 10” Jensen version, and cheaper than the 68’ reissue.

This amp has developed a significant, unplayable buzz when playing Bard A chord at 5th fret

I was looking for a nice "grab and go" Fender that wasn't too heavy but sounded great. I've had a Deluxe, then down-sized to the SuperChamp XD but found the 10" speaker not to be my style. I played through a friends Princeton and thought it was superior to the XD, but I couldn't get over the 10" speaker. Then comes this version with 12" C-Rex. Well I have to say I really like it - nice full bottom end and typical fender clean - with high headroom. I noticed at around 5 it returns with tube warmth and can get hot - too loud for the house but the high end rounds off the more you push it.

At first I was leaning towards a SF deluxe reverb until I found about this model. I was lucky enough to find one hanging around in my area. The speaker makes a huge difference and the thing sounds absolutely beautiful. Beautiful tone with just the right amount of bite. It breaks up great!

The speaker upgrade with the cannabis rex makes all the difference. I set it up alongside my Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissues and it just kills it tone wise. It takes pedals like a champ-If you need a low watt amp this this is one to seriously consider.

Love this amp. Took me awhile to get to it at the store when comparing to the other PRRIs, but this one with the 12" Cannabis Rex speaker really shines. The bass notes are spot on with no "flubbyness" at all.

Just picked this up and have to say I'm impressed. The CR speaker is worth about $100 more than a typical Jensen and you're getting that at no extra cost. Why buy another PR for the exact same price with a lower quality speaker? This was an absolute bargain on that point alone. Lots of headroom, nice chime like cleans typical of any good fender. I bought this to downsize from a twin. I put it up to 10 and my head didn't explode, if I did that with the twin I wouldn't be here writing this. Great value and love the looks too.
