Yesterday, I spent 6 hours recording some scorching ambiance and lead lines for “2 Sisters“. Every time I plug my Marshall stack in, I get lost in the beautiful noises that it makes. It has surprising range and crunches when I push it. My solid state Fender Princeton Chorus, on the other hand, produces a softer, more processed sound that has nowhere near the razor sharp edge of its big, green brother on the other side of the room. It’s kind of funny, because about 12 years ago, I traded a Marshall JCM 800 stack for that little Princeton Chorus – What was I thinking?!!?
Fender has since discontinued the Princeton Chorus, whereas the JCM 800 has gone on to become a collector’s item. Darn.
