Both amps more or less occupy the same place in the general range of amps out there, so it's easy to see why people compare them, but the Rambler (6L6's) and the Fender Deluxe (6V6's) behave very differently in practical use. At 28 watts the Rambler makes more power and is cleaner than a Deluxe, and their pre-amp sections are similar. Having said that, the Rambler's power section is much more like a Tweed Pro and its phase inverter is based on a Princeton. So, the Rambler shares heritage with a few Fender classics. The Sportsman is the Carr amp that's most like a Fender Deluxe.
