Leo soon realised that amplifiers needed to be sturdy to withstand the life on the road, and decided to build his own, to care for the needs of travelling musicians such as his customers.
In 1946, Fender began manufacturing a series of now-legendary amps: the Deluxe, the Professional, the Dual Professional, and the Princeton.
I use this before buying a amp always-check all four transformers-will tell you if there has been problems along the way. On the bottom lower corner of the grill cloth was/is a 1×2 inch “JBL” plastic logo that Fender attached.

I was thinking of trying a Celestion Gold 50, but I usually only play in my bedroom, and I don't want to increase the amp’s volume.
