I've owned mine for a year now, so I think I deserve another review.First, this thing has beautiful tone. I like how it's got character ("boxiness") and has a nice warm round tone with brightness that gives it a lively tone. Stereotypical Fender clean tone with EL84 character. However, with the choice of tubes and the way they designed this amp, it always feels like it's on the edge of getting louder than you just set it. The wattage rating is deceiving: this thing gets loud fast. An Epiphone Valve Junior (5W) has more low-volume headroom, but the Pro Junior is cleaner and easily has more overdrive. The Pro Junior's overdriven sound is very round and powerful, while the Valve Junior's overdriven tone is less powerful, more "smoky" or "fuzzy".Quality gets a 4 because the letters on the controls are very easily scratched off on accident. They should've etched a plate underneath a piece of glass, not painted letters on glass. However, there are no other quality factors.Don't take the EL84 tube retainer off, by the way. It might rattle a bit (springs) at louder volumes, but it prevents the EL84s from trying to fall out. They could've improved on this design by using the "old school" metal can keepers like the old Twin Reverb amps have.I walk 0.5 miles to chapel at Kunsan Air Base, South Korea with this amp, and back again. This amp is almost too powerful for a 1000-capacity chapel. I have to switch to -15dB on my Shure KSM57 when I close-mic this amp, and I rarely get it above 1.5 volume because it will make the singers in our band deaf. I plan to try some 12AY7s soon.The handle is not comfortable for these 0.5 mile treks.The official Fender vinyl cover does a good job protecting the amp.I use this thing with a Boss ME-50 and a Schecter C-1 Classic and I have lots of versatility. I recommend this amp, and I would buy another one.

I wanted a small practice / record "tuber" that was easier to carry around than my blackface Deluxe. Out of the box, this amp had "hiss and frying eggs" sounds like a vintage amp with advancing "Fender disease", quite shocking for a new amp. I have early 60's Fenders with less noise. I sent it back. It was probably just a random lemon but I'd advise not buying any amp until you've actually played it a little bit.

Punchy little guy

By TELEmeLATER995

from Anchorage, AK

This amp is really loud I have to keep the volume under 2 or it disturbs my neighbors. It's definitely not practical for an apartment dweller. Love the sound it delivers paired with my telecaster--just vintage fender vibe. The big downside is that there's no built in effects. It sounds pretty good with no effects at all, but when you are looking for some more diverse sounds, it's a lot of extra cash. So unless you already have a good assortment of effects, it might be more economical to pay a little more for an amp with built-in effects.

By nemeton

I love the simplicity of this amp which I think is the reason for it's alluring tube canvas. I have two of these amps in a stereo wiring with a high gain modern boutique distortion, a lush stereo chorus, and a warm delay, and the sound is perfect for my needs. The amps don't sound like old time rock & roll to me. They're my functioning little modern tube rig.

Great Practice Amp

By The Kids Alright

from Colorado

My Pro Junior is an american made one. The pros 1) excellent sound with both my Gibson ES and Telecaster - very sweet 2) lots of volume 3) the price 4)great with effects pedals. The cons - 1) no reverb or temolo 2) hum - lots of tube amps have hum & this one has some and while it is not bad for live or practice it may be a little loud for some applications. If you don't know if this is true or not look on the internet for Pro Junior hum fixes. Oh - Groove Tubes & Jensen speaker sound excellent althought I think you need to break it in a bit. Enjoy!

I purchased this amp a few years back from this store when they were made in the USA and I have never ever regretted it. The creamy sounds that come from this simple little amp are unbelievable. I am a reverb junkie so I had to as a pedal but, it's no big deal. Mine is the Blonde model with the only 2 knobs that you will ever need. Nobody believes it until they hear one of these.

GREAT Amp

By shecter dude 6

from Memphis

I got this amp about three years ago and I liked it when I tried it out at the store, but I didn't expect it to put as much output out cause it's only 15 watts, but cause of the tubes it really packs a punch. I really like the fact that the cable running from the speaker to the amp is 1/4" so I can unplug the speaker and run it into a bigger amp cabinet. All around this is a great amp to buy if you can spend the money, even though it has no built in effects but that doesn't bother me cause I have a pedal board with all the effects I need.

Decent Amp.

By Chris-Y9ufQ

from New York

I bought this amp a few days ago on Ebay, and it sounds alright. It can get really loud and distorted but the low end phases at that volume, maybe I need to install a new speaker or some mods, but it doesn't handle overdrive well

honky combo

By Declaps

from Denmark, Europe

This little combo rocks. It will deliver the goodies even at band levels. I have owned it for about 3 years now and I must say Im impressed with the sound that comes out of this little box. I have used it with humbuckers and single coils and it is easier to control with single coils, but it can sound absolutely beautiful with humbuckers if you twittle about with the knobs. I have approx 20 years of studio experience and I have worked on nearly every guitar rig build, and this one records really nice, it is controllable, got a nice sustain, warm tone and a nice bite to it, The tone has got caracter.My model is a mexican build , havent tried the original USA model, but this amp rocks all the way.I would like to try it with a Jensen or even a JBL.Keep the sigal chain as short as poss and it will howl back at you. :-)

Sweet and Simple

By Mr. Giggles

from Atlanta, GA

This amp is a great little tube combo. The 15W rating does not convey the volume you can get out of it. Even though there are only Volume and Tone controls, you really don't need them because the sound is great. I use a custom-built strat with the SRV pickups and a semi-hollow, both sound excellent. Using the volume controls on your guitar is a must. I recommend plugging straight from your guitar into this amp, or at the most, a wah and overdrive pedal, because you honestly don't need much else. Would definitely buy another if it got stolen.

Hot little amp!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a great little amp. It's everything you need and nothing that you don't. The tone is great and it has balls too. There's a reason that Fender pairs these things up with LTD custom shop guitars. They are just cool little amps.
