For the money and size, few amps match the quality of tone and portability of the Blues Junior. Fender has tweaked the formula over the years, but the basic goodness of this amp is hard to deny. While perfectly happy with pedals, some of the best tones are to be had by keeping the gain at a moderate level, cranking the master and working the guitar's volume control to modulate overdrive and sustain. You can do that with a 15w amp in ways that you can't with a larger amp without injuring your bandmates.
This Blues Junior has been upgraded with an Eminence Cannabis Rex speaker. Made with a true hemp fiber cone, the Rex has a warmer overall character and a smooth top end that works great with pedals, especially distortion. We use them in our own amps, and they never sound "farty" or thin, even when pushed hard. Fenders have plenty of natural brightness, and the Rex simply adds more character and range.
For the price of a couple fancy pedals you can have a real amplifier that would be a good buy at twice the price. Check it out.
