i somewhat agree, though with one caveat. like all amps, it depends on the speaker.Let's see, how to put this. I bought a Blues JR entirely due to the fact I could fit it in a suitcase for a tour I did a few years back. I traveled all over Europe with it playing in a duo. We had a blast. The only thing the amp did that I liked was not weight much, haha. I'm not a fan of this amp...I did pretty much all the BillM mods to it and I still didn't like it. Cold, brittle, uninspiring. Very glad I sold it.
YMMV, of course, just one man's experience.
Well the Speaker and cab will be the most expensive but if your just doing the simple circuit mods its under $50 or under $100 if you add the upgraded Output transformer, I spent about $275 in all the mods I did and is worth it to me plus its an easy amp to repair/mod my self!I'm looking for a grab & go amp. My question is, after you do all those mods to the JR, plus new speaker and new cab, how much coin do you have invested in it?
Makes sense to me. There are plenty of amps out there for the price of the BJ plus mods that will sound better.I dunno--if it were me, rather than spend that kind of coin to upgrade a mediocre amp, I'd rather just combine the cost of the amp and the mods to go get an amp that sounds better in the first place.
Yep, you could buy something like a used PRRI for that much. The BillM mods are fine if you already like the sound of the blues jr. If not then you're chasing tone that you won't get from a blues jr even with the mods.I dunno--if it were me, rather than spend that kind of coin to upgrade a mediocre amp, I'd rather just combine the cost of the amp and the mods to go get an amp that sounds better in the first place.
WowIt all depends on what you're looking for. I actually liked my Blues Jr stock. Paired with my esquire, I could get Brad Paisley rhythm tones easily. After a the basic mod package, the amp is missing that growl that I loved. It's a little too tame now...it doesn't break up in a musical, natural way anymore...the gain is fuzzy and metal-ish now. Boo-urns.
