Blues Jr.

Back to Gear Review Categories
Posted on 2003-02-08
Bought this little amp to play in acoustic clubs/pubs because I was fed up of playing electric guitar through the PA and not hearing what I was doing. Whilst the controls are very basic, only having a single input (volume, treble, middle, bass, master and reverb), the tones I am getting with my Gibsons (135, 335 and LP) and tele are amazing. The amp is easily as good as my blues deville, maybe quieter but plenty sufficient for small venues.

In my search for a new practice amp, I decided on the 15watt Fender Blues Jr. I love tube amps, and the Blues Jr. does not disappoint. It is, like most Fender amps, on the clean side but very loud for its size. This amp could easily serve well in a club gig miked through the PA. It has a "fat" button to dirty up the tone a bit but I suggest a distortion pedal if you like a more distortion. The tone controls are located on top of the amp and feature the "chicken head" look. This amp is also available in vintage tweed which is very cool, but I chose the black Tolex material.The great thing about Fender amps is that the true tone of your guitar is heard through the amp, and my Strat and Les Paul sound exactly as they should. At about $250 retail, this is great little amp.
