Princeton Reverb but make it the 65 reissue, it’s a classic and sweeter bell-like cleans.

the other amps you initially listed in your first post are too big for home and the Tonemasters sound ok but not the same to my ears. Maybe in band setting is good for those. Let’s just say you won’t be wondering “what if” if you get the real deal Princeton Reverb. Do it right the first time.

WoodyJ, you have a really nice setup there. Is that Stapleton amp actually made by Fender?

Yep, it is truly great amp of it's size with the 12" speaker and whatever has been done by Fender to the internals. Years ago I had 1962 non-reverb Princeton that was identical visually to the Chris Stapleton one, but his version can get WAY louder than the original ever one was. I am not an electronics expert, but I doubt that the larger speaker in the CS is the only reason.

Made by Fender and hand-wired in Corona, CA, I believe!

I'd love to know what Fender did to get the Stapleton 6G2 to be so loud. I built my own 6G2 which has a 12" speaker but it does not get loud at all. Turning up the volume just compresses the signal after a certain point. Don't think it's just the efficiency of the speaker.
