Princeton amp

Postby TheDude » Thu Aug 10, 2006 9:10 am

Hi everyone.

I have an amp that I just can't find any information on. It was made in the late seventies in Japan. My brother bought it new in '78. It's a solidstate, normal and bright channels both with their own controls and EQ. Master volume, ground switch, reverb and tremolo. High and low inputs on both channels. It's 72W going through 2x12' no-name speakers. The brandname is Princeton.

I can't find anything on the brand. I suppose it was discontinued, or maybe they were bought by a larger corporation, I just don't know...

All I know is that it sounds GREAT! There's no overdrive just clean. But the cleans are very warm, fat and snappy. Pulling the bright switch causes it to break up just a tiny little bit and give it a bit more hair, but no OD. Just a very fat, singing clean tone.

Is there anyone out there who could give me any more background info on the brand?
