The Fender Princeton recording amp combo is a fantastic combo for someone you need a simple recording amplifier with the features built-in for that purpose. This is an amplifier that has a pretty high price at right around $1400 which is sort of expenses for exactly what it is. You get a double front panel control which is a little bit odd looking when you first look at it. It looks like it's a rack mounted effect processors built into combo amplifier. The top portion is black and looks like a simple Princeton reverb amplifier and in the panel right below it is a great one with some of the recording control features.

This amplifier features volume, treble, bass, reverb, compressor sensitivity compressor level, overdrive gain, overdrive tone, overdrive level, and power attenuation. That's a lot of controls to put on one simple little amplifier but this is designed for the most versatility possible any recording session.

The tone is amp is very good and has a good quality Fender like tone for recording. It is obviously a Fender amp but is able to get a good distortion tone that is unlike many other Fender amps that I've heard from before. This is the kind of thing that you would go to you when you are laying down tracks on a recording session and need the absolute most of versatility in capturing those guitar moment. This guitar amp sounds fantastic and gives you a solid tone that matches well with any guitar do you put in front of it.


At new you can find his guitar amps for right around $1400 which is a little bit high for a small combo Fender amp but this is more than just a simple Fender amp. I would highly recommend any studio musician or recording engineer to put in their arsenal of amplifiers. This is a great amp to turn to if you need a good sender chiming clean town or a good mild over driven rock sound.
