    The OFFICIAL Fender Blues Junior Lounge!!!

    I realize that this is HCFX, but with Phil's permission I've decided to start a Blues Jr. lounge.



    I'm sure there are a lot of Fender lovers in here, as well as guys who dig this little amp and would like to have a place for discussion on all the mods, upgrades and secrets of this amp.



    So ... welcome!!



    I hope this thread will become a resource for Blues Junior owners, as well as assist those with any questions they may have about this phenomenal amp.

    I'm looking for some help with my Blues Junior. (I tried to create a separate post, but it said I don't have sufficient privileges. )
    At band practice today, I plugged it in, flipped the switch and heard a faint pop and the power light on top went out.

    - about 2 months ago I swapped out the tubes (that had been it since I got it two year ago and it was used at that time) for a matched set of JJ's. So the tubes are pretty new.

    - There was no smoke or smell when it happened.

    Any idea what I should look at to figure out the problem?

    Ditches my blonde blues Jr with the crappy reverb and picked up a black one with not crappy reverb.







    It may be my ears playing tricks on me, but thus amp sounds significantly better than my blonde one. It's a creme board mia.

    This was a garden variety black tolex edition. New cab, Mojotone speaker, JJ's, Jan-Phillips 5751 in V1. Since the mods I have not touched it for about 4 years now. It kicks my Pro Jrs ass.

    Yeah, I do like amp reverb but I've gone without it for a while now. I went from a Pro Jr to the NT and use an RV-5 for my reverb needs.

    I've got a 40th Anniversay black & silver that I use on stage all the time. Been thinking about swapping out the speaker for a Celestion, & might make some EQ mods but overall I get great tone & volume has never been an issue.
