Anyone here own one of these?

Are they worth the extra $100?

I have one .The difference is the tolex and a different speaker. I have had both and the speaker is less efficient than the standard model. At 4.5 at home it isnt all that loud. This speaker is meant to breakup sooner and getting decent tones at lower volumes is a plus if you use it at home.

When I bought mine they were the same price as the normal ones . If those extra features are worth 100 dollars , then they are . It is easy to change the speaker . The red tolex is kind of cool I think.

The P12Q is a *terrific* speaker in the DRRI, especially for clean.

I tried one and sent it back. It sounded fine, but part of the sound of the Princeton really is a good 10" speaker... with a 12 I thought it actually lost something. Just my experience, might be great for you. If I own another Princeton someday, it will have a 10 in it.
