If you want to get a Twin, Fender Twin Reverb '65 Reissues are some of the most expensive models ($1,400~$1,700 for new, about $900-$1,000 for used )but their sound is unmatched.
They are very heavy though.
Highly recommended if weight is not an issue for you.

Fender deluxe reverb? Light, great sound and loud enough to gig with. Second hand they're going for around 5-600 so worth a look.

I really like the idea of a deluxe reverb, but borrowed one for a gig a while ago from the band we were supporting as the room wasn't big enough to get two amps in!!

It was plenty loud enough, but very thin sounding to my ears, sounded like it needed a mid-boost, but didn't have a mid control

Neither was I till I got my Vibroverb 63RI - the 2 10s seems to have something that the 1 12 in my Blues Deluxe doesn't have.

Once I start playing regularly at the Royal Albert Hall ( ) I might consider getting a Twin, but not until then. Though lots of visiting US blues players have sounded great at small London venues (like The 100 Club) through what I assume were hired

If you're considering buying it, I can find out for you. Malcolm has a 112RD & Noel has one of the 2 x 10s, I think it's the same as the one in the ad.

I used to have a 112RD, & it was valve power amp & tranny pre-amp, so just avoid the overdrive channel & you have a very small & light 50w valve amp. I think all the range was valve power amp/tranny pre-amp, but I can check with them who know if you want me to.

I probably wouldn't be interested if it was a tranny pre-amp, probably no justification other than amp snobbery I'm sure the sound great
