    Default Princeton Recording Amp (Fender)

    Hello all,

    Has anyone had any experience with the Princeton Recording Amp from Fender yet? The whole built in attenuator has me intrigued.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't played it, but there's a review of that amp in the Guitar World with EVH on the cover. Generally, they seemed to like it but thought that it was expensive.

    Peavey is coming out with a Satriani recording amp that also has an attenuator built in, so that's another option at a significantly lower price (about $500).

    There's also a live demo on the cd rom that comes with that GW issue. It sounds great, but depending on your purposes it may not have enough gain. I've been looking everywhere for info on the Peavy/Satriani Mini Collosal, but nothing's available yet...

    I think it's an update of an old Yamaha concept (the G100 series), if this is the case then it's a good amp. Fender makes good amps anyway, what the Priceton Studio Amp gives you is volume and power control. It's essentually old-school amp-modeling.

    Fender Amps have a great but unique sound to them so try them out before you take one home. If you like Stevie Ray Vaughn then you'll love them, if you're looking for the Brown Sound, you may still like the Fender but it's smoother than the Marshall/Veriac/VH1 sound.
