I have a Fender Blues Jr that I am using in my band. The band is getting quite serious so I thought it might be time to upgrade to a more "professional" amp. So I brought in a boutique amp that is made by a local guy and I was finding the tone to be not as good as my blues jr, the mids were flat and it was dirtier than I like, my tone for the band is a clean tone about 80% of the time. Soon I found that I was just trying to make this boutique amp sound like my blues jr. I've heard things about the fail rate of blues jrs and such. So my question is this; Should I stick with the blues jr or would it not be reliable to take on the road and be a workhorse for years? If it's not reliable, what kind of amp should I be looking at to replace it? Thanks y'all.
