First off, i own a cheapo epiphone special les paul model, and this amp creates absolutely no white noise with it, and sounds great! my friend tried to play his american strat through it, and it hissed like crazy, so maybe it has to do with single coil vs. humbucker. i have played my friends strat to twin reverb rig, and it has nowhere near as good of a tone! even he'll admit that my amp sounds much cleaner, and the distortion blows his away. this is the best amp i have ever played, and its small and a lot louder than twins or deluxes ive played. the digital effects are sometimes weak, and it can sound too trebly if played with everything set at 5, but if you fiddle around with it for a while, you can achieve some of the best tones around, especially for the price range!

Love musician's friend, but always go try before you buy. The 7 for Quality is strictly because it has nicely laid out effects, and doesn't look cheap. The sound quality is terrible. It always has a fuzzy noise, and it just gets louder as you do. If you want loud, this is loud. It just makes alot of excess noise. It also has alot of feedback on the OD channel. If it wasn't for the fuzz that always seems to override your playing it would be great. I have tried it in a million places to see if it was some kind of interferance. No luck. Always fuzzy. Don't get this one, you won't be happy. Unless for some reason static noise makes you giddy. I will be changing this one out ASAP. Real disappointment...

If you get a good deal on this amp go for it. If at first you don't like it, take a little bit of time to find the setting you like. There is so much you can do with this amp, its a great deal! You can even plug an acoustic electric into it if you want. Works fine! Great practice amp!

Review

By davidski

from Jacksonville FL

i have been in the market for an amp for quite a while. I needed an amp that would work with my A/E Alverez, as well as my Mex Strat. This amp was the one for me.Compared to Other fender amps in its class (Fender Princeton 65 DSP Combo,Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP,and the Fender FM 65R Guitar Combo),the Fender Dyna-Touch III Princeton 650 Guitar Combo Amp is the Amp best for the money. Having the volume set @ 8-9, the tone is still clean and crisp (other amps start distorting around lvl 7).This guy has a tuner, a crapload of awesome FX, and it weighs 1/2 as much as all other amps i listed. Suggested for bedroom, practice and small stage gigs.

Very Nice!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just got this amp a day ago. So far I love it. It has a good clean channel and overdrive. I really like the timbers. It's like having 7 different clean and overdrive channels. Each timber is pretty good. Some of them sound similar but they are still different. I have a american strat and it sounds good through it. I also have an alvarez acoustic. It doesn't sound as good through it, but i don't use it for my acoustic. All in all it's pretty good. It has good effects as well and really annoys my parents!

Power and tone to spare

By Ricky the Recycler

from Ottawa, ON

This amp is small in size and very loud. It has a lot of the characteristic Fender tones with enough adjustments to keep anyone happy. The only issue I have with it is the amount of hiss or white noise that comes out of it. This is disappointing because I wanted to use this amp for recording, but the background noise is too much.

It is decent, more then i need though

By Joel1000

from Portland, Oregon

I really enjoy this amp, but for some reason it always has white noise, I dont know if my house is possed or something....it sounded fine at the store. I like the timber effects, and it is very small and increadibly loud. from my experience, the loud sounds great, the quiet sound overbearen with white noise. I would recomend this amp to anyone with a garage band.

Cheap parts

By unclejustin

from Austin, TX

I've had this amp for almost a year now. It had to be repaired three times in the first three months I had it. After the fourth time I gave up and now it sits in my bedroom collecting dust. Sounds decent when it works, but that hasn't been very often. I would not recommend anyone buy any of the "budget" amps that fender makes, they're all garbage now.

wow

By MetallicKycA3791

from MA

this amp is great. It's the loudest amp in its price range that I've seen recently, and it has a crapload of effects. Small enough for room practice, big nough for a medium sized show. The distortion is excellent, and the many effects make a wide range of sounds possible. Great amp at a good price

You could do better

By gigmaster-1xV-r

I strongly dont like this amp. My friend just got it and I just got a Kustom65quad dfx. I'd take my amp anyday over this and mine was cheaper. If you really like the fender tone take a step up to the tubes. This amp has no warmth nor tube distorted sound.

It sounds Horrible

By Platypus

from WNY

Noisey, brassy, poorly laid out effects set up did I mention noisey, how about hissy, timbre filters are ok but impart even more hiss. Has plenty of volume to go with the noise. So If you want loud bad tone this is your amp!

Princeton 650

By FP-VAwmT

from Newnan, GA

I bought this amp mostly as a personal, at home amp but wanted the power when taking out to play somewhere. It also can rise above the volume of my kids drums when we jam together. I play a Gibson Blueshawk and use the Behringer V-Amp2. I am an intermediate level player.I looked at many 65 watt amps before buying the Fender Princeton 650. My needs and desires were met with this amp. It has the power when needed. The tuner and effects make it well suited as a stand alone unit but also serves me well as a monitor for my processor and also has the effect loop ability. The weight also won't wear me out when carrying around. At 28 pounds this amp was the lightest of all I looked at. It also has the Fender reputation of reliability and quality.The timbre filters provide plenty of variation of tone especially when coupled with the Varitone of the Gibson Blueshawk (7 timbre filters, guitar has 6 position varitone switch & 3 way pick-up selection plus added amp digital effects makes for many choices, you do the math).The price paid was competitive and well worth it.I would replace it if lost, damaged, stolen or vaporized. Actually I might step up to the Deluxe 900 or Stage 1000 if it came to that point. I still light how light this thing is though.
