If you don't have the money/space for a Twin, go with a Deluxe, or Princeton Reverb.
If you don't have the money for those, a Champ or Hot Rod Deluxe will do the trick.
SarnoMusicSolutions wrote:For around the house, I'd agree on the Princeton Reverb. A Princeton Reverb with a JBL D110 or K110 sounds very Jerry if you turn the bass knob off and turn up the treble to about 8 to 10. You also may want to snip the little bright cap that's at the volume pot. That adds unnecessary crispness. Even other speakers will sound pretty good at the low power levels of a Princeton. The Princeton is VERY close to the Twin preamp circuit of Jerry's, especially with that spring reverb.
SarnoMusicSolutions wrote:The Deluxe Reissue is also the same tone stack and preamp, basically. The Blues Jr. is actually a pretty good circuit for a Jerry tone. Both the Blues JR. and the reissue Fenders could stand for better cap's and resistors here and there, and definitely a more appropriate speaker, but they're definitely in the ballpark circuit-wise.
