The Champ or VibroChamp will sound real good at a relatively low volume
level (but keep in mind that even three to five watts can be pretty loud) but
will not be playable with a band, even if the drummer can play at a reasonably
low volume. The Princeton and AC15 will sound pretty darn good even at a low
volume, but are loud enough to at least give you some flexibility to play
with a band. I play out often with an old 1961 Gibson made Epiphone amp
15 watts - with a very efficient 12 inch Red Fang speaker.
The Princeton has a 10 inch speaker and the AC 15 a 12. I'd personally go
for the AC15 'cause I've got a decent selection of small 15 to 20 watt amps
that are 6v6 tubes, and an AC15 would be a change of pace. If it were to be
main amp - I'd go with the Princeton. BZ knows tons about amps so listen to
what he says. Good luck.

Okay. If you were a small dog that wanted a big sound when playing guitar in
the doghouse, would you go for a Fender Princeton, Champ, Vibro Champ,
I'm interested in a tube amp that won't make my master discipline me, but
still give me that sweet tone. I'm willing to buy vintage and assume the
Chonese/Asian links don't live up to their hype.
You can discuss bigger amps but I don't think I need/want anything more than
Help me out. Throw me a bone.
