The best tone I ever played thru was my 1969 SFDR and a reissue JMP45- I'd say go Marshall- either with or without a MV.

Victoria Sovereign is as good or better than even a real 1960’s JTM45. Of all the amps I've owned, nothing can dethrone Sovereign from the top of Tone Mountain.

Plus it's another Victoria, so you know you're getting the best quality available today.

4x10 will always give you the fattest/fullest sound.
If Victoria makes a 5F6A Bassman circuit, that's your answer.

You might want to add something with multiple 10 inch speakers. I have a brand spanking new Victorilux 3x10 with 6L6 on the way. It is an amp I played through a few years ago and I gave up on waiting for a used one to pop up. Glorious Brown/Black face with the Mid control option to dial in more of a tweed, and the top notch reverb/trem that Mark does. It also comes in other configs (1x12, 2x12, 2x10) and EL84 based. One day I would like to try out a Victoriette. The Bassman version Victoria might be ok and add quite a bit, but it is rather big and somewhat heavy. I have the Victoria Reverberato that I run in front of my '59 Bassman RI, my main gig rig for a couple of decades, and hard to beat with any other amp.

I like the 10” idea. A Super Reverb or something of that ilk would be grand.

If you want to get freaky, why not try a 15”? A nice old (40w) Fender Vibrasonic or a newer (100w) one would definitely bring a “bigger wider fuller, different sound”! And it definitely would be different! The 15” speaker is weird and very unlike a 12” but once you tame it and get it dialed in, it’s great fun!

I gig thru a Pro- a guitar 5” is a different animal altogether. Try both if you can.
