In addition to the usual larger Fender, Ampeg, Silvertone, etc. suspects I’ve been into small combo amps for a while, especially mid-‘50s to mid-‘60s Rickenbackers. Judging by the circuits, a lot of Mr. Fender’s early amp offerings were heavily Rickenbacker influenced, and these amps deliver what you’d expect from their Fender contemporaries...but with cool green jewel lights! Plus in-studio I prefer the typically looser/larger sound of small amps vs. the tighter/smaller sound of big amps, not to mention obviating the sometimes funky phase relations between multi speaker cabs.

Almost as good/bad as the amp-in-case
