    Based solely on the voicings of my Fender Champion modeling amp, the Deluxe Reverb hands down. I believe my aging hearing is drawn more to the cleaner note definition present in amps with higher headroom. I do enjoy grittier overdriven tones when soloing but for me personally, clean is king.

    Right-ee-oh! To my ear, the Fender Deluxe Reverb is the one.
    I like the models I have on me modeling amp... I doin't actually
    own one.

    But you know... they are both great and classic amps. You could
    practically close your eyes and pick one. You couldn't go wrong, really. If you ever needed more power, just mike it and play it through the P.A. and it sounds HUGE.

    so it's better to tie a bandana around your head, over your eyes so you can't see, and then play both using your own signal chain and your own guitar with the strings you prefer and the pick you
    normally use, (or no pick, like normal). Have a friend change them back and forth for you, or use an A-B pedal.

    Played like that, you just use your ears to listen and decide, and
    ignore comments from guys like me who know nothing about your music or your style.

    If you cain't do that, and you MUST order an expensive amp from yer easy chair without ever playing it, solely on the basis of advice from strangers, get the Deluxe. *grins

    The way I see it, there are a hundred big 1x12 combos you can get with a great, sparkly clean - including my Marshall. For that reason, I would never have any reason to get a Fender Deluxe Reverb. But there's something special about Fender's small amps that other makers just can't seem to replicate - other small amps tend to sound boxy and raspy, but the Princeton makes a really cool warm, smooth sound.

    That said, I'd rather have the Pro Junior. That's a killer little combo.
