What's the difference between these two Tweed Champs - the 5C1 and the 5F1. (besides the 5C1 being an earlier model) I was thinking soundwise.

well,the 5C1 has a 6SJ7 preamp tube which is grid-leak biased.That alone is a different sound than a 5F1 which uses a 12AX7 which is cathode biased.Then the voltages are lower which means lower power output.It would probably be a grindy little quiet amp.
Might be good for harp,but not really the best sound for guitar compared to a 5F1 in my opinion.
