which one you gets depends on budget, how you'll be using it, and specific needs as far as tone goes.

What kind of music are trying to play. From what I could gather, Hendrix stuff. You would want a more british sound for that though. Vintage Fender though-I would say you could get a Bassman for that price. It'll give you great classic rock tones.

The hot rod's are ok. You'd be best off with a bassman. A Blues amp would probably do you good too.

The Hot Rod series are good amps. I'm not a fan of the Deville. The Deluxe is good, but the overdrive is not for everyone. That one you would have to play and see. Also, I just realized that it is home use. All those amps would be quite overkill. You could get the Deluxe and put some of the rest towards a Weber attenuator.

Hm... I have another thing to say. I've been looking at the Fender 65 Twin Reberb and I have realized the BassMan and that Twin are the same price now I know one's a tube (Wait Twin Is A Tube I Think?) and the other isn't but really whats the better buy for me? If I'm really willing to buy a brand new amp like that for 1300$? Now I know I play at Home but I really wanted something with a Great Tone and something nice and new because I have my crappy 2 year old beginner Amp and these amps I can see have a big difference (Correct me If I'm Wrong Lol) anyhowz thanks again lol

no, really, it's probably the greatest amp of all time.


Well the Bassman specs were used basically to formulate both the original Mesa amps and Marshalls. Very important technology!

I say to you, you're going to want a more british sounding amplifier.

Somebody get al in here, we need a marshall clone expert.

The Twin is actually an outstanding amp.

I play through one 3 times a week (the 100w Red Knob version).

It's a clean amp.

Not a rock amp.

Unless you can crank the **** out of it.

Rock without that tube grrr is lacking.

Blonde Bassman ftw.

Even when you crank it though. I also don't find (Well, at least low end) fenders to sound worse when cranked. The breakup really is bad. I haven't cranked many high end ones. But they sound a hell of a lot better.

TS. I don't mean to sound like a moody old git, but why instantly limit yourself to one brand of amplifier before you've even decided what you want?
I'd take a look at Traynor for those classic rock tones... I'm not too sure what else is good value in the States.

If you saved up more, you could most likely afford one.

A Deluxe would be great for Hendrix as long as you can get yourself a fuzz and some sort of overdrive for his lighter sounds.
Hendrix only used his Marshalls live, his studio tone was mostly courtesy to small Fender amps like the Princeton.

The Deluxe is 22 watts so it's still bloody loud for at home use but even a 5 watter would be too loud.
If you're really looking for Jimi's live tone then I suggest a Marshall 18 watt clone (Ceriatone, Brown etc make good ones. Check the ultimate vintage amp thread for more ).
The gear is in the profile.
You know you want to take a look

Yea I like his live but I'm looking more into his Studio. Thanks I didn't know he used Marshall just for live that helps me I'll go for the Bass man or the Twin cause I have the Hendrix Pedal and Hendrix and Fender Rule
