I have the Fender Princeton Chorus (1996-97). 2 10's... Everytime i turn it past 3 or 4, it sounds like shit...crackly and such... Any advice, experience? Also, the effects in and out...should I run my effects through there? if so how...or should I run it through the input?

Thanks!!

Yes, your 15w solid state is better than a twin. Of course. How stupid of me to think any different. Think I'll change my dream amp to a frontman now you said that.

no, i´m not saying the 15 w is better, it´s just the only fender amp i tested which can live up to it´s brand name.

princeton's are all tube amps, so a few tubes may need replacing. As for the effects loop, try running different effects in different places and see what sounds best. Most people prefer to run effects like delay, phase and so on in the effects loop, but leave the overdrive and the wah at the input.

i just don´t like them, fender makes the best guitars but not amps(the sound is too trebly), marshall is the real deal (hope i´ll get one someday)

you don't even know what you're talking about. You might as well quit right now before you say anything else stupid.

Saying "Fender amps suck" isn't an opinion. It's blasphomey.

Anyways, sounds like you need to change the tubes. It's not particularly expensive, but get a technician to do it for you because it needs to be biased.

saying that a fender front man is the only amp to live up to the fender name = you don't know what you're talking about.

Princeton Chorus amps are solid state, FYI. Great sounding solid state amps...I had one, but take it to a tech.
Dont know what else to tell you.

I know the Fender Princeton is a tube amp... is there a difference with the Princeton Chorus? I just assumed it would be tube also.

If it's a solid state amp, the problem is obviously not the tubes. Have you tried using different cables? Your cable may be shorting out on you. Other than that, it's really hard to say what could be wrong. Taking it to a tech would be best.
