        why is weight soooooo much of an issue for you?
        seriously, are you disabled? just curious seriously
        Remember-bigger speakers, more speakers=pushing more air=better, fuller more satisfying tone. Sorry, you just can't get around that.

        For a ultra portable amp, it sounds like you're all set with the roland micro thing

        IMO you will do not better than a Jet City 20 watt 1x12 combo amp with a $50 amp stand to project its sound better. That whole setup would be around $300 USD (don't know yen or shipping but it would still be a great deal nonetheless)

        Just stay with the microcube rather than get another little blues jr IMO
        As you can see in my sig, I have a Peavey Classic 50 combo. I highly recommend these amps because they have killer tone. I've had mine 20 years, travelled across the U.S. with it, and never had to service it other than replace tubes infrequently. Very reliable and has tones that poop all over those HRD fendersand blues jrs. i guess im biased though

          Well for one, I don't have a car so I have to carry it around on public transport. I'm moving to the UK next year for college so the shipping costs are cheaper if the weight is lighter.
          I do understand that "size matters" with the tone. It just seems daunting to carry a 30 kg amp around.

          I have a question on the Peavey. Does it have a sort of "master volume"? Can I play clean loud with the volume cranked up? I'm also keeping an eye on those amps. They're pretty affordable in Japan based on what I checked last time.

            I don't get why people go lol wimpy man when people complain about weight. I'm not a weakling but I still have trouble moving around most 1x12 combos, and have a really hard time with 2x12s. It's stuff like this that puts girls off guitar too.

            I think a lot of people are too used to having transport, which I don't have. I'd actually have to walk a considerable distance and get a bus.

            The ZT Lunchbox and Crate Powerblock seem like great ideas to me.

              The lunchbox is 200 Watts? What the ****************?

              Sorry buddy, I appreciate your advice and sympathy, but that will blow my ****************ing ears out...

                It's SS and sounds pretty much the same at lower volumes. It's actually one of the better low volume amps I've heard actually.

                It's a great option for portability. I doubt you'll even find a 15 Watt amp as portable as it.

                      yes peavey classics have a master volume. why did you think they didn't? who told you that? Just for information purposes, check out http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-Classic-30-112-Tube-Amp-Combo-104145552-i1171332.gc

                      and read some of the reviews. i cant overstate how nice and versatile of an amp it is. yes, it's really portable as well. awesome cleans, pedal-friendly, good overdrive, reliable as f#$k.


                      just one question............why don't you practice at home with your roland microcube thingy and keep a larger amp at your practice/jam space? or do you always practice and/or gig different places?

                      For example, some guys will have a small combo amp at home, but have a full marshall stack at their rehearsal space. Just an idea.

                      Oh, and an amp stand is very inexpensive and is an absolute MUST-HAVE for a combo amp. gotta get one

                        maybe not for you. Why didn't you just bleed a little back?

                            i was going to say the same thing. and in the next year before the move, he could save up to buy a much better amp..............


                            excellent idea sir

                              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.


                              Weight is a big deal when you try and get an amp around on the train there, I know

                                Dude, have you ever been to Japan it is not the same as the states.

                                I understand his want of the blues Jr for weight as it is a big deal when getting around on the busy Tokyo metro.

                                I also understand his frustration for finding the right amp unless you know where to look it can be quite hard finding amps there, also they are a lot more expensive than the states due to import fee's.

                                Rehearsal studios don't always have the space to store your gear for you.
