What's my best option making the most improvement in my tone (not that I can complain about what I have now).



    PS-also what kind of speaker wattage/ohms does one need to replace it with? (as you can tell, I know little to nothing about this kind of stuff)






    BillM eq mod will make a huge difference. Speaker swap too.

      Mine sounds worlds different with just a retube (JJ's) re-bias, and routine tune up.

        Regarding the sunburst BJ, that is one attractive amplifier.

                  Thanks everyone. Fender did something special. Anyone know anything about this special run? I looked at the board and it's cream 2003.

                    Brought out the Junior tonight and plugged it in. We had been using my new Boogie and a ton of software amp models on GTR and Amplitube lately so the Fender was a bit dusty. I don't know why I ever try to use anything else when I want to record HUGE guitar tones The Junior cranked and miked with a Tone Factor '75 Special out front blows the doors off anything I have ever heard!

                      For you gentlemen with replaced speakers...

                      What's the best speaker to use in a Blues Jr. without changing the sound dramatically. I have a 2x12 avatar cab with V30/G12H30, and I don't like how that sounds when plugged into the Blues Jr. It sounds too modern, and too trebly. Are Jensen or Weber speakers like this? I want a replacement that'll keep the vintage vibe with subdued highs and honky mids. While it shines with my Laney, the V30 fails for the Blues Jr. for me.

                        Check out reviews of the Texas Heat. It's very popular over at the Fender forum, and it's not supposed to alter the sound of the amp much.

                          I was going to go for a Texas Heat ... but opted out for a Cannabis Rex because I could get it for the same price.



                          I like it. A little darker than the TH as I recall though. Either way ... I doubt I'll change it.

                            Whoa. Two posts regarding Texas heat already. I'll definitely have to check it out. Thanks!



                            I also heard someone else recommend Cannibis. Hmm.

                              How long have you had the Cannabis Rex? I'm curious about breaking in time.



                              Do you still get that Fender sound with the darker speaker?

                                Sheesh... I've had that speaker since ... December? I don't know about break in time... I bought it used.



                                And I'd say ... yeah, I still get the fender clean with the Rex.
