In essence it will be a 72 SF Fender Twin Reverb. I play, 60, 70s, soul/funk/blues occasional rock in a band setting. Mostly just looking for that vintage Fender clean sparkle. G12Cs, ET65s, or ET65/Ret30 mix... What do you recommend ?

Thanks!

For the more expected, classic Fender sparkle your best bet would be the G12C, for sure. I'd only opt for the ET65 in this context should I want to get some excessive brightness in check. And I think the ET90 does full-on cleans better than the 65. But you seem quite content with what the amp puts out and rather want crisper, more american highs - am I right?

You are right! So.. g12c for classic Fender crispness. Been seeing all the recommendations for et65s etc. thought I'd ask.

Thanks for the input!

I'd still go ET65s, which will give you a full balance of EVERYTHING (from bottom end to sparkle) ... The G12 pair will indeed be very bright; If that's what you are looking for, then go for it!

Thanks Vaughn! I see you recommend those a lot. I like the clean 60,70s soul/funk tone a la Jimmy Nolen, dap kings etc.. which is bright. You think the ets will capture that? Are you thinking the g12 is too too bright? Will the et65 be bright enough? Aye...

Man, I think so ... I've had a LOT(!!) of experience with silver face twins (and similar silver face amps), and I find that they have fantastic amounts of top-end available. I never see anyone play a twin with the bright switch on with the treble above about 5.
Hey, glad you're hip to the Dap Kings! I recorded and mixed them live for a TV show I was a producer on in about 2010 ... dammmm they were cool! Guitar player used a silver face Princeton Reverb with the reverb WAY up and it was perfect, btw.

One last thought ... if you don't like the ET65s, you can swap them :-) Also, you could consider going with one of each.

I can see where Vaughn is going with this suggestion of his, although I find the ETs as a bit soft in the highest of highs and probably had suggested the Reaper HP for a snappier highend and more highend texture. Just how much snap do you want?

The american drivers in later Fender designs were indeed pulp-cone ones, not the seamed cone variety like the G12C, and thus not as defined and not as slim in the lows. Forgive me for using a different brand as reference, but you're likely to want something like the Weber 12F150 or the 12F150W to stay with an american style speaker and get the fullness you desire without skimping on the highend.

Then of course you have the G12C/S and I could see a combo of the C and the C/S work out as a compromise. Or perhaps a pair of C/Ss should anything else fail.
