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. The Blues Junior III makes for a great first tube amp, though 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 extension 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.

The Fender Blues Junior III amp will partner beautifully with any electric guitar depending on the output you wish to achieve. This amp is suitable enough to fill a small venue room with a modest crowd of people but is also perfect for practice sessions. It has a lightweight feel making it easily portable for when you need to take it from one place to the next. The Blues Junior III offers a substantial sound that will impress any guitar player looking for either a practice amp or something suitable for a small gig.

Posted on 30/12/2017 by JR Just purchased this amp very impressed. Great tone got a Strat this is like a revaluation, never got it to sound this good. Clean & precise over the moon!
Posted on 21/03/2015 by Cheekybikerboy This is a truly brilliant little amp.

I've used it for practice on my own at home and also in a full band situation. It blew everyone in the band away - the drummer couldn't believe so much volume was coming out of this little box!!

But the tones, oh, my......

Sparkling cleans through to dirty blues all covered effortlessly. With a strat it's an absolute dream - every subtlety of your playing is brought out and the amp responds like a living thing to every change in your pick dynamics. With a Gibson it's just fat and smooth and it dirties up real good - well into the bottom end of hard rock territory.

It's easy to get great tones at any volume. Home practice for me is around 2 on both master + preamp volume for a clean sound and depending on how hard you're playing that could be neighbour bothering! Even at this volume the tone is phenomenal, glassy, bright - all the usual Fender traits beautifully realized. The fat switch adds maybe an extra 10-15% of punch to dirty up the overdrive a touch more or simply let you add volume to the clean sound.

The reverb on this thing is out of this world. It goes to 12 but at 3 sounds like you're in a Cathedral. At 12 it's simply immense. My Blackstar 5 watt can't keep up even when maxed out on reverb it's like 2-3 on the Fender.

If you want to gig this little amp is probably loud enough for up to 40-50 people in a suitably sized room. If you're practicing with your band in an average sized rehearsal space this will deliver enough volume. Also, it's not too big / heavy to lug around.

About the only niggle is that the power cable is hard wired in. I would have much preferred a detachable 3 pin plug but this is my only gripe.
Posted on 02/09/2013 by Ben My first tube amp and I couldn't ask for much more from it. Sounds amazing, and excellent for many styles, ranging from Indie Rock to Blues Rock. I've got some really beefy sounds coming out of it. 15 watts might not sound like much to some but with a tube amp it is a lot louder than you'd think so it will be suitable for just about any gig, and if it's not loud enough then the chances are that you'll be rich enough to just buy a bigger one! The controls are nice and simple and it’s relatively small size and weight make it nice and portable too. Oh and I believe no other than Noel Gallagher has one in his live amp rig, need I say more?
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.
