    Hey guys, I'm from Montgomery Twp, next to Princeton, Central NJ, in Somerset County, use a Schecter Omen 6 (with a stop tailpiece, this guitar was from before they made the string-thru body), use it through a Marshall 10CD and a Guitar Research T60R. I am currently selling a Boss ME-50 to pay for either a Fender Blues Jr., Fender Super 60, Epiphone Blues Custom 30, or some other quality tube amp for around $300 (all these are ones I found used). I LOVE playing the blues, love jamming, etc.

    Maybe you guys can give me guidance as to which amp to choose?

    Thanks, and I love the forum.

    Davejeon02, welcome to TGP. I live in Hillsborough.
    There seems to be a lot of guys from the area on TGP. Several jams at local bars in the area as well.
    As to the amps you're looking at, I have a Fender Hotrod Deluxe. It's a great amp but at 40 watts it's too much for small venues and especially the basement. I recently picked up a Blues Junior and I like it a lot. 15 watts and plenty loud with a lot of gain but you can play it nice and clean as well. Decent reverb too. I play teles, strats and an Ibanez archtop with hb pups. All sound great through the b JR.
    The blues jam I go to regularly uses two blues juniors in the back line and they are really good for the space. It's a small bar in west orange but gets packed on jam night. the amps hold their own against the drums, bass and harp players.
    Hope that helps..
