I'm doing the same thing w/ my Blues Jr. It smoked the circuit board and output transformer, so I found the layout at 18watt.com to turn it into a single volume, single tone version. I spent $75 at Hoffman for all the parts needed minus the OT. When I finish it, I'll post about how it sounds.

there are a few conversions like this. i've seen a Pro Jr. done into 18 watt specs, too.

a few guys on the LP forum's amp lounge can do this for you.

I think the Blues Junior and a few other extremely established and well priced amps are going to be the fertile ground for lots of mods for the playing musician. We have a Blues Junior rebuild planned as well, I am glad to see this is already in motion with other builders.

I would not be surprised to see this type of mod being very common in a year or two with quite a few builders and modders in the game.

Certainly the amp and high end climate are changing, more players without elite wallets want "in"!

S2 is a regular member of the www.18watt.com forum and really builds some nice stuff. He's also very knowledgable (sp?).

It would be interesting to hear this conversion.

Hello, sir. I just placed an order for a Tone Press from one of your Calgary dealers. Looking forward to it.

Never heard that one but I love the concept! Gut those dime a dozen corporate amps and rewire them with highly serviceable construction and parts…and uh, cool tones too!

I have "Farshall" conversion by Tom Seward-Pro Jr. Great sounding little amp, even with the original speaker/transformers. Now I need to find someone to build a full 18w head from a generic 60s donor for me...
