A Great Little Amp !!!

I bought this amp to play at my church gig.However I have taken this amp out to other venues and I have to say this is the loudest 15 Watt amp I have heard.It really cuts through the mix of a live band.True Fender tones and a great vintage look with the Lacquered Tweed.I owned an older version of the Blues Junior in the past and the new Fender Blues Junior III is very much improved.The Jensen speaker is a real plus and the spring reverb is way more authentic sounding then the older versions.I did an A/B demo between the Black and the Tweed Blues Junior before my purchase.I preferred the brighter sounding Tweed version over the Black version.To my ears it had a more true vintage Fender sound.All in all it does what I want it to do and I am very happy with it.My sales engineer Chris Leonard made it very easy for me to purchase the amp.As always I am very satisfied with the way Sweetwater takes care of all my music gear needs.Highly recommended !!!

The amp for all situations

Bedroom Review:When turned down at 2 on the master and volume knobs this amp delivers very good bedroom tones and is quite manageable for home applications The Jensen makes this amp sing and it breaks up sooner than a black tolex blues junior meaning crunchier tones at less volume.Rehearsal Review:One of this amps best traits is how portable it is. This has gone to rehearsals with ease and has gotten over a band and sat in a mix very well. I play rhythm guitar and ive found that when i leave the FAT switch on full time i get very good bass response which is a surprise for such a small amp.Gig Review:On gig days i take one trip from my car to the stage. In on hand my amp with all my instrument cables in the other both my strat and les paul and on my back is my pedal board. At gigs this amp goes to 4-5 volume and master and man this amp just opens right up at around half volume.It has played large small and medium size venues. Never had to Mic it. Pedals: I run a Crybaby into a Tubescreamer into a DS1 into a TC Hall of Fame and finally I go into a Strymon Mobius and this amp accepts all of them very well. A little disclaimer abut this amp is it does buzz a bit so get a good noise gate and you will be in good shape.Overall, for $600 this is the best tube amp on the market for the money


Got this as I was tired of hauling a larger amp around for small gigs or practice.Was astounded at the volume, clarity and tone of this guy. the combination of the master and regular volume is perfect. You get a wonderful overdrive without any distortion pedals. Also sounds great playing other pedals right out of the front. I don't really miss the effects loop at all.My advice is spend the extra money for the tweed. it is like a mini boutique Only had it about a month but got to play it live and it had no problem filling up a not so small club withbeautiful sounds. And when you do get one get it from Sweetwater! Can't beat their service, Pricing andfree freight!

Great Amp

This is a fantastic little amp that is much louder than you might expect. It has a beautiful warm tone, and in my opinion, is a no brainer to step up to vs. the Black Blues Junior. I have had mine for maybe 6-8 years now and also own a Fender Deluxe Reverb, which I love and can cut through a mix really well with its much brighter tone and is great in its own right -- but when I want that warm, rounded Fender tweed sound, I reach for this amp. I think it is truly a classic. There are also some pedals that just sound better on one amp vs. the other. I have a high gain Lovepedal E6, for example, that I do not love with the Deluxe, but sounds amazing with the Blues Jr. I also have a Fender '59 Bassman Ltd, which is a great amp and is a tweed Fender like this Blues Jr, but the Bassman is much larger with its 4x10" speakers. There are more settings available on the Bassman, and it can really growl with tons of power, so no knocking it. But you need to run it at louder volumes to achieve breakup in the tubes, so again, when I just want a warm beautiful Fender tweed tone, either clean or on the edge of breakup, or a little growly, but not overpowering -- this is my best amp. I love it, and I cannot imagine ever selling it. You can get more options and more complexity elsewhere, and you will get more chime with a Vox AC30 and a brighter sound with a Fender Deluxe Reverb, or a really clean, but less round Fender sound with tons of power with a Twin Reverb... But the tweed Blues Jr. holds its own against any of these amps with its own classic tone and offers a simple beauty and more tone for the money than I have found in any other amp -- and more tone than you can find in most amps costing multiples more.So if you like a warm, Fender tweed tone and play blues or rock, you should definitely check out this amp.
