The Blues Jr. pushed through a 12" Jensen speaker.

The Blues Jr. NOS takes Fender's 15W gem and gives it the true vintage treatment with tweed covering and a vintage-style 12" Jensen speaker. Its power is generated by an all-tube signal path using a pair of EL84 Groove Tube output tubes and 3 - 12AX7 preamp tubes. Add renowned Fender reverb, flexible controls, and footswitchable (with optional footswitch - product #420703) FAT circuit for golden tones, and you're in business. And just look at that chrome panel, that tweed finish with pinstripe grille cloth, and those vintage pointer knobs!

  • Sweet 15 watt'er

    As reviewed by SkyDogDA on 2/17/2010

    Perfect little amp for any situation. Awesome buttery overdriven tones with little harshness. Excellent for blues, jam band, funk, etc. The upgraded speaker is definitely worth the extra bones and can really scream when overdriven. Sounds great with both humbuckers and singe coi, just have to adjust the eq settings. Would definitely buy another if this one ever goes out.

  • Great sound poor quality

    As reviewed by Gabriel on 12/17/2010

    When this amp works it is a monster, tone for days and a sweet breakup. In a four month period I went through three NOS JRs, the first did not work out of the box took it back to GC they gave me an other in a box that one worked for about a month, then dead. Took it back they gave me the store demo with a big scratch on the side then you guessed it dead. I opted for a used mid 90's American made Hot rod Deluxe. One of my students bought a NOS Jr after hearing mine and his did the same thing died. The repair man told us the problem was the soldering job on the tube sockets, the Mexican factory has poor quality control which is sad. He then resoldered the connections and that amp now works fine. I am a giging musician and need reliable gear, I still play Fender and always will but my main amp is a Silverface Deluxe, built like a tank. I hope Fender fixes the quality issues.

    Having played over 40 years, I have made some very bad decisions when it comes to amps and guitars I have purchased. Let me assure you that buying the Fender Blues Jr. NOS was not one of those mistakes. The only reason I gave it a 4, was due to the fact that Fender didn't put a stand-by switch on this amp. Nevertheless, this amp is among the top of my list when it comes to the quality, sound, and even the weight. Most of my playing is done in my in-home recording studio I had built. Because there are different types of muisc being recorded, I wanted to have amps and guitars that could match any style of recording in my studio. (READ ON). For example; The Marshall JVM410H with 4X12 JCM900 1960 lead cabinet takes care of any high gain/metal style. The Fender 65 reissue Twin & deluxe reverb work for all styles of music that leans toward a warm clean sound. The little known all tube Peavey Delta Blues 30 watt, with it's 15 inch speaker is a work horse for music that requires some push. However, there was a sound I kept hearing in my head that I couldn't get with all of these top notch amps. The Fender Blues jr. NOS was the missing piece of the puzzle. It has become the most played amp in my studio on songs being recorded. This small amp has enough power to play a small venue, and if a mic is placed in front of it and ran through the PA system, then you could play any size venue. The fat button on it will give you a sound that is neither dirty nor clean, which makes it a sound all it's on. While most of the time mine is sitting on a speaker stand. If I do want to move it, the weight of the amp makes it very easy to pick up and carry it to the car if need be. This is a feature I really like since one of my knees have been replaced. If it vanished today, I would be at Guitar Center asap to purchase another. Keep in mind, you want to purchase the Blues Jr. NOS, with the 12 inch Jensen speaker. Don't purchase the cheaper model that has the inferior speaker, this is one time that spending the extra money is worth it. In addition, the brown tweed looks really cool.
