I've owned two of these now, and consider them to be the best working musician's value going! If you are a Metal Head, stop reading. Wrong Amp. Go buy a Line 6 or some such other solid state one. If you want a ton of tone in a little package, proceed. The first one I got is a tweed when they first came out a few years back. I've gigged with it, recorded with it, jammed, taught, practiced and written songs with it. Sound guys love you when you show up with this bad boy and all they gotta do is drop a 57 in front of it and you're good to go in anything short of a stadium. With my G&L's the strat goes from warm smooth clean to buttery, greazy SRV tone and the ASAT (Tele) just kicks it up a notch into Zep I Pagey tone. Recently got a newer blonde one and while it's not as creamy and mellow as the tweed, I'm sure it will mature as sweetly as its sister. Experiment with tube hardness, etc. if you're not completely won over. If there's one gripe....no reverb. BEWARE; DO NOT BUY THE BLUES JR JUST FOR THE REVERB!!!! It is NOT the same amp. Different tubes, different sound. Not half the amp the Pro Jr is! Thank Leo's ghost.

I am sad to say Fender has hit bottom with this amp. The overdrive sounds like garbage. I was looking for a small amp that had a sweet natural distortion to play small gigs and record with. This amp falls short of the mark and is not worth the price tag. I'm not going to spend that much money on a amp and find I have to put an overdrive pedal in front of the amp to make it sing. Don't get me wrong I don't want cascading gain, but a strong pure overdrive tone like the Fender amp use to be known for. I've had a few Fender amps and up until now they have all sounded fine. These amps did not require any pedals to make them sound good. The Fender amps I used were not channel switching amps but amps designed with the same concept as to Pro Junior turn it up and it will sing. This is not so for the Pro Junior. The overdrive of the Pro Junior falls apart when pushed and will not sustain with any authority. There are many sites on the internet that tell ways to modify this amp so the overdrive will sing. The sites are there because Fender has fallen short with putting the integrity into their product. Fender is a big company and I am sure with a little effort they could make this little amp into a big winner, but until they do so I would strongly suggest buyer beware.

Tiny but kicks a**!

By Mishka KMU

from Israel

I bought this amp with a custom fender speaker (larger diameter) installed. It looks very simple from the first sight, but wait till you plug in!The sound just left me speachless... It's the best clean/overdrive tube sound I've ever heard. No amp, except some really expensive VOXes, can compete with it. It beats the hell out of all the big brothers (blues junior, hot-rod deluxe). For this price theres nothing better! The only thing that ruins my fiesta is the lack of reverb.

Good Practise Amp, Loud

This is a good proctise Amp. Much Louder than exspected. I would recommend changing out tubes right away and maybe speaker. Its a little noisy

Nice

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Love this thing, only thing is the lack of reverb. Much better than the blues Jr. though. Try running it through a 4x12 if you have one laying around and you'll be impressed. Crank the volume all the way up and what a nice sound. Have had mine for 4 years, along with several other rigs. Bonus, I can take this one anywhere at the drop of a hat.

Fender Pro Junior Combo

By Gas Man

from Ferndale, WA

I had to write this review when I noticed that the average rating is TOO LOW!This is a great little amp. Don't expect more than it is. It's got the best natural overdrive tone in my arsenal of amps. It is a very warm, deep and loud amp for a 15W 10" speaker combo. And it's got the classic Fender tone! If you don't have a reverb effects unit, you may want to step up to the Blues Junior. But addition of reverb is all this amp needs. As you turn up the volume, the decibel level starts to remain constant and the overdrive tone just increases. It's a great amp for practice, recording or small gigs, especially if run into a P.A. Not for metal heads, but I'd rather use this amp with a distortion pedal than a cheap Marshall, because the sound of this unit never gets brittle.

Turn It UP!!!

By Johnny Puddintater

from CAPE COD

I run a Pro Junior in tandem with a Marshall JCM800 50 Watt combo. The result is very cool. I have a Les Paul w/P-90's so the rig screams, and I don't break my back moving it around. It surprises people the big sound I get outta a small amp, The Marshall handles a lot of it, but the Pro Junior really completes the whole deal. You can't beat a really simple tube amp set-up!

Great Amp!

By Dave-QaZnG

from NJ

I have this same amp in the tweed model which came out a few yrs back. The thing really cranks for a 15W amp. I don't go out and gig, so this is plenty for the house. The tone is incredible! The only thing I would wish is that you could get this EXACT amp with reverb. If you crank the vol up on this past 5 or so it really gives you that fender overdriven sound so many people have never been able to capture in any pedal anywhere.

Great Overdriven Tube Sound

By bluesguitar65

from Sun Valley, CA

See all my reviews

The pro jr. sounds so much better than the blues jr. It breaks up much earlier and it sounds much rounder, more bluesy than the blues jr. The only problem with the pro jr is the annoying humming noise. The blues jr does not have this hum problem. Other than humming noise, the pro jr is a small amp with big tone.
