The Fender Princeton 112 Plus is a guitar combo amplifier that is split up into a normal and a drive channel.  It has a ¼ inch input as well as ¼ inch connections for a foot switch, headphones, or a separate preamp or power amp.  It also has a single 12 inch speaker as the name suggests.

UTILIZATION

If you have any experience with guitar amps, you won’t have any trouble with this amp as it has a very basic make up that is seen across the board on Fender amplifiers.  The normal channel has parameters for volume, treble, and bass, while the drive channels has parameters for gain, contour, treble, and bass.  It also has a master volume and a reverb knob that apply to the amp no matter which channel you have switched on.  I don’t have the manual for the Fender Princeton 112 Plus, but if you don’t have it, it isn’t a big deal as you can figure out the amp on its own.

SOUNDS

The sounds possible with the Fender Princeton 112 Plus amp are pretty varied and most of have a precise and clean sound to them.  I like using both the normal and drive channels and I find best that this amp sounds best when using a Fender guitar like a Stratocaster or a Telecaster with it.  For some reason it seems that Fender on Fender just always sounds best.  I also like to use the reverb a lot and it is definitely a nice feature to have.



OVERALL OPINION

I’ve been using the Fender Princeton 112 Plus for about two years for both live shows and recording and I’ve found that it works pretty well for both of these applications.  It isn’t too big so it is easy to bring around and while it can crank up pretty loud, I usually mic it up anyway.  The price is pretty reasonable and probably won’t deter anyone from picking one up if they like it.  While not ideal for shows, it will work well on the stage as well as in the studio.
