after reading this thread, I am increasingly irritated by OP. OP finds a problem with every suggestion. WTF? Obviously he was just looking for a bunch of people to tell him the blues Jr is awesome so he could feel better about what he's already gassing for..............
and the peavey classic has no master volume???????????? that is news to me.
P.S. if a AC15 is "too big" to carry around there is no hope.
almost seems like a troll.

Egnater Tweaker, but yeah it stomps the Fender BJ.
I mean the BJ is passable, but it works best with a separate dirt pedal.
This. This in spades. I'm a Fender Fanboi too but the Tweaker is the shnizzle. Also so is the Jet City 20 watt 1x12" I just got one at Sam Ash for $269.99 New. It has unbelievable Crunch and drive. yet it also cleans (well sort of) up real well. And to top it all off, it has Tube driven Spring Reverb. No EFX loop though. But in the old days the recordings we all love didn't have them either. To me Reverb is the real need in an amp without a loop.

I don't know, I've used a Blues Jr for years (and in professional touring and studio applications)! It's not the most ideal amp for every situation but it does have its merits. I've never had anyone have anything but praise for my tones out of the amp... but then again, I did do some minor mods to it.. but I used to rock it full on standard with no probs. I don't get the hate.
Yeah it doesn't have much of anything in the dirt department but it can get a pretty loud clear clean and if you rely on pedals its fairly universal in the sounds it can put out from Rock to R&B. Just takes a lil dialing in.
+1... I have never played one for myself but, I have heard bands that use the Blues Jrs. and they always have a pretty sweet tone. I once saw a guy with a Pro Jr which was rehoused into a 12" cab and his tone was thick and sweet as well. As for the bigger Hot Rod series.......not so much sweetness!
off-the-shelf, it's an ok/mid-level amp. with some simple mods you can significantly improve it.

I heard replacing the stock speakers is a must and the tubes. Maybe that's what's making the price so low.
You know, I prefer that (blues jr) more than anything else in terms of the weight. It's only 14 kg and it's 15 watts, unlike the Vox.
It is now crystal clear the OP began this thread looking for affirmation of what he really wants. As soon as someone says something good about the Blues Jr, he jumps all over it. He believes the Vox AC15 "too heavy"
Let him buy a tiny amp, he's already made his decision.

Stop feeding the troll.
I'm a confused teenager, I need help on what amp to buy. After all, all I really have is a Roland Micro Cube. And I do want the best deal.
