The Fender Blues Junior III is a delightfully portable, hard rockin' 12-watt tube amp - ideal for tone loving guitarists who need a grab-and-go amp for stage and studio, or simply want a premium practice amp for home. Many guitarists will have already played a Blues Junior amp before, and the III model is an excellent update to a much-loved classic. The sound is warm and full, the overdrive is pure tube drive and the controls are incredibly simple - so you can focus on playing, just as it should be.
The full mid-tones from the EL84 output tubes, fused with 12AX7 preamp tube gain is what makes this amp so warm. There is real spring reverb to smooth your tone and add a classic sustain to the sound. There is also a footswitchable FAT boost for thickening your sound when the need arises, and an extentsion speaker output for getting the biggest sound possible.
Upgrades added to the Fender Blues Junior III include an easier-to-read black control panel with front-reading text, new badge, vintage Fender “dog bone” handle, vintage-size jewel light, “sparkle” circuit mod, rattle-reducing shock absorbers for the EL84 tubes, highly sensitive Fender Special Design 12” “lightning bolt” speaker by Eminence, and heavy-duty set-screw “chicken head” knobs.

Great, quality tube amp
Posted on 14/08/2012 by msfriendly
The Fender Blues Junior is my pick for a great first tube amp. The sound, quality and size make it great for small venues or just rocking out in your bedroom. Its sound far outweighs any other solid-state model I've used for the same price. You really need to try one out to hear the difference but it is such a BIG difference - rich, warm tones on every setting. The only drawback is the price. If it's on offer, buy it without hesitation.
