I think your instinct is right-- play the amp and enjoy it as-is for now. Don't get sucked down the 'speakers and tubes' rabbit hole. / Good to hear! I felt certain you'd be happy
Totally agree with this! In this day and age there isn't much that a stock DRRI can't do very capably for most players. 8)

Enjoy your new amp NateD81!

Thank you! Yeah, I think before I got the amp in my hands, I read about a million speaker opinions, tube opinions -- which was really fun -- but when I plug my guitar in I loved the sound immediately. I was so used to my X2, playing the DRRI makes my X2 pale in comparison and I don't think it's a bad amp at all...just not a DRRI.

Anyway, the amp is just what I hoped for, beautiful clean sound with tons of headroom. Now I just need to improve my guitar playing...SO easy :fp:

Easier when it's fun to play because you like the sound coming out!

Those are great amps, and I intend to get another one some day. Congratulations!
Back in those days, everyone knew that if you were talking about Destiny's Child, you were talking about Beyonce, LaTavia, LeToya, and Larry.

I had my Twin first & have always loved the Sound of it. But, It was really loud. Eventually I wanted something not as loud, as big & not 85 lbs. To lug around for the small to medium Gigs I play, rehearsal, practice & recording.

So I got a 65 DRRI. It took quite a while for it to break in to the point where I liked the Sound of it. I guess I'd been spoiled by my Twin or whatever.. Honestly, it took about a year & lots of playing... But, it finally got broken in & sounds great..

A few years later I see a lot of guys playing Princetons & they sound great! They're compact & light as well. They're as soft or as loud as you want them to be if you Mic them..

One day I was trying out a new Fano Guitar & the only a Amp available was a new 65 PRRI. So I plugged into it.... I really liked it. So I bought one of them as well.

My new PRRI sounded great from day one.. No break in required. Probably my favorite all around Amp..

The other 2 are great & definitely have their Place & Sound steller!

Bottom line... There is no wrong choice. They're all great Amps just any Guitar will sound amazing with.....

Good choice! Enjoy! You may end up getting on Fender Amps & want more!
