OK, I'm the newbie on the block and this is my first post. I need a little help. I have several amps and guitars but my favorite to play is my Gretsch Model 6119 (tennessee rose) which I play throught a 1965 fender bassman and 1963 fender reverb tank. My parents gave this bassman amp when I was 16 and it still sounds awesome. I will never get rid of it but is is heavy and I'm not getting any younger. I want to find another amp to gig with and my gigs are small clubs. I'v been looking at the Fender Blues Delux Reissue. Tone is what I'm most intersested in. Does anyone have experience playing these two amps and can advise me on how much the Blues Delux might compare to the Basseman? I appreciate your opinion.
