Love my Zs!!! But I am considering a 5e3 tweed deluxe kit build just for the fun of it. Not sure I really like Tweed tones all the much so really it’s more about process of doing the build and saying I did it.
I have no first hand experience with any tweeds, only some YouTube research. Sounds like they have limited headroom but hard to tell where the grind starts from YouTube samples. I am wondering if anyone can tell me just how loud they can get before breakup? Maybe in comparison with an M12 as I own one? Obviously the M12 stays clean way up the volume knob. Anyone have like a loudness comparison of what sort of volume I could get before the dirt kicks in?
Also considering the single ended 5f2a Princeton if anyone has any insight on that model also. Thanks in advance.

Lots of info on YouTube about tweed deluxe and all the variants (narrow panel, wide panel ext.) As for usable headroom the only experience is with my friends Victoria 20112 Got to about 2-4 o’clock with a Strat before the fuzzy started kicking in so a little louder than healthy bedroom volume (say 10:00-11:00 on the M12) if memory serves me correctly.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
