A 482-unit North American limited run of this strikingly stellar combo amp was introduced in summer 2012.
The 15-watt Blues Junior has long been a favorite grab-and-go tube amp perfect for the studio and small gigs that need a little extra growl and punch. This limited-edition model is covered in two-tone red and black vinyl, with black grille cloth and a top-mount black control panel with front-reading text. Other premium features include warm overdrive, real spring reverb, simple controls and a single 12" Eminence® Wizard™ speaker that delivers gorgeous clean tone and warm, full British overdrive.

The other day I went to a local music store to try out a new amp. My goal was to spend around $500 for a nice compact tube amp. The first thing that caught my eye was this amp right here. It was simply the most beautiful amp, unlike all the ordinary gray-and-black Fenders and brown Vox's. It has a very modern-looking twist with the red sides and black grill cover. The Eminence Wizard speaker is great! When I tried the regular Blues Junior, the sound was too punchy and trebley. This speaker fixes it all! You get a great vintage, clean Fender tone, with more balance.
There are two things that I would change about. First off, there is no standby switch, which isn't that important, but I get a great feeling or assurance when there is one. Secondly, and mainly, there is no overdrive channel and no distortion. This can be fixed with a pedal, but I am not in a mood of spending an extra $100. Note: if you raise the volume to 9 or 10 and lower the master volume to about 2, you do get a little bit of break-up. It isn't quite powerful enough to be called overdrive, but it's somewhat close.
All in all, this is an amazing amp! While it is very compact in its size and weight, it can still be very loud. Buy the amp!

I already owned a BJ3 i was very happy with it but I wanted more.
This one has it all...a new speaker and a new color...so i sold the other and bought this one.
Amazing amp, best value on the market.
Everybody should have a Blues Junior in his set-up/studio/house :)
