One of the most famous recording amps of all time. Clapton, Gibbons, Joe Walsh, so many famous tones from this circuit.
The Tweed Princeton was the next line of practice amps after the Champ models with similarities of an 8” speaker and single ended class A with 5 watts output. The Princeton amp basically housed the same circuit as the Champ although with added low-pass tone control, larger output transformer and a larger cabinet. The Princeton will respond like a Tweed Champ and will make a great recording amp or a simple practice amplifier.
Hand Wired to perfection and a wiring layout you will appreciate. Our very own branded Achillies power capacitors for ultimate tone and stability have been adapted to the build. Strictly requested (knot free) Radiata pine when building our cabinets, which gives that perfect balance we need to offer you the finest amplifiers on the market. Constructed with Traditional Dovetail Joinery and wrapped with authentic Fender Tweed cloth covering or select our range of tolex covering options. We have gone to great lengths to apply the tweed cloth that the pattern will flow in the same direction anywhere you look at the cabinet, as did the originals. To finish the cabinet we have applied 2 heavy coats of Nitrocellulose lacquer to protect your amplifier for years to come.
