Product Description

With the Fender Blues Junior III, the world's most popular tube amps just got better. Fender Hot Rod series amplifiers are found on every stage in the world, large and small, and are used by guitarists from all walks of life. The Blues Junior III delivers unmistakable Fender tone and are the perfect platform for musicians to craft their own signature sound. These no-frills amps are affordable, reliable and loud, and they pair extremely well with stomp boxes.

Features

- Fender Special Design "lightning bolt" speaker is balanced across the entire frequency range and offers rich and complex harmonic response
- "Sparkle" circuit modification for crystalline Fender clean tones
- Rattle-reducing shock absorbers keep the EL84 tubes road-worthy and quiet
- Heavy-duty set-screw "chicken head" knobs are tough and secure

- Black non-reflective control panel makes onstage adjustments easier

The Blues Junior III is a 15-watt warm-toned, longtime favorite--the perfect grab-and-go tube amp for stage and studio. It is known for the fat mid tones characteristic of EL-84 output tubes, warm 12AX7 preamp tube overdrive, real spring reverb, simple control layout, footswitchable FAT boost and external speaker capability. Additional Blues Junior III upgrades include an easier-to-read black control panel with front-reading text, badge, vintage Fender "dog bone" handle, vintage-size jewel light, "sparkle" circuit mod, rattle-reducing shock absorbers for the EL84 tubes, highly sensitive Fender Special Design 12" "lightning bolt" speaker by Eminence(R), and heavy-duty set-screw "chicken head" knobs.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Possibly the only Amplifier I ever needed"
Overall: When I first considered purchasing the Fender Blues Junior III, I had only two selfish things in mind: inexpensive all tube sound and maybe one less trip to the car on some gig nights. I was hoping that the amp would be loud enough for rehearsals and MAYBE some gigs with the help of miking (there is no direct line-out) and perhaps some monitor support on stage. What I got went well past simply exceeding my expectations. First, I don't know how Fender measures wattage but this all tube "15" watt amplifier is both loud AND clear. It not only held its own in rehearsal but on stage as well, and without monitor support. This amp could end up replacing my Fender Twin Reverb for most gigs, and that is definitely one less trip to the car. But it's not just the size of the amp (about 36lbs) and how loud it is, it's what you get out of its single 12 inch speaker. It didn't take me long to dial up the perfect tone for my style of music (funk, jazz, R&B). As far as features go, you're not getting a lot of bells and whistles (i.e. a direct line out, effects loop, separate channels etc). But I added a little pedal support and I was good to go! BTW, zZounds is by far one of the BEST online sources of equipment! I ordered the amplifier Monday afternoon and Wednesday night I had it at rehearsal. And did I mention the shipping was FREE? Low price, great service, great sound. I don't know what more to ask for.
Style of Music: Blues, R&B, Funk

Sound: The clean sound is as expected of Fender, great and I have no complaints at all. The Blues jr does well and I prefer its size than my other two fender amps (HRDeluxe and Deville). You can get good clean blues tones, country, jazz or whatever else your into and the best thing is unlike its bigger brothers it won't break your back. Although it doesn't have a designated drive channel, if you turn the volume to 12 and master to your desired specs you can get a great classic rock tone, one for example would be a tone reminiscent of Claptons "Cocaine". The Wow Factor: Great tone in such a small frame, that's "wow" enough wouldn't ya think. Overall: The Blues jr is a great amp for someone looking for a great clean tone or classic rock tone. I've found it takes pedals very well which makes it even more versatile, I also like the fact that it doesn't weigh 40 to 60 pounds like its big brothers and for a person with a bad back to have a tube amp that doesn't require back pains all night makes gigging alot more fun. I would trust this amp to be loud enough for gigs and to have a great sound throughout the show.
Style of Music: Classic Rock, Blues, and Country
