Does anyone know what the sound difference between the 5F1 (tweed champ) and the 5F2 (tweed Princeton) circuit is, tone pot in 5F2 not withstanding? Thanks.

I am no expert, but at one point I was looking into both amps. I was told the SF2 has more clean headroom/later breakup then the SF1.

The tone stack and the 10" speaker I know about. If the tone was at 12 noon on the 5F2 and both had the same speaker, is there anything different in sound, however subtle. To complicate things more, what's the difference between the 5F2 and 5F2A circuits

Because the 5F2 has the tone stack, it will have less gain. Other than that they will sound the same. The princeton will just be a little bigger and fuller sounding because of the 10" speaker. A little louder as well.

5F2 is the way to go. 5F1 is pretty dark by nature, I had to really tweak the circuit on mine to get it bright enough for me.
