    if you want the sound from that video, theen you outta stay away from the blues junior.  with only a few hundred to blow you might want to stay away from tubes if you're looking for that sound.  I'd take a look at the vox ad50.  that has plenty of diffrent tones.  or a marshall valvestate.  or even one of the 65 watt crates could probobly get that tone with enough tweakage

    ohhhh . . . is that what you call that? tone? well if that is tone, than any cheap Crate SS amp will get you there.

    The Blues Jr. is very capeable of producing any sound that's required. Just get yourself a couple pedals or a processor of some sort and I think you'll be very happy with the results.

    I still say the Blues Jr is the best little tube amp for the $$$ these days.
    Unless you're a metalhead you can't go wrong with it, long live the Blues Jr.

    the blues junior can do anything with a distortion pedal. i've plaed a few through it, the boss ds-1, fulltone OCD, mxr distortion +. and a few others. they all went well, i think the boss ds-1 and the fulltone went the best with it. but yeah, plugged straight into the amp can do blues well, but the amp reactes very well to distortion pedals.

    blues junior is an excellent studio amp.  Its great for blues and classic rock just dont expect to hear mettallica any day now.

    I have a 1957 Fender Champ, 1 volume control, no tone control........You'd be surprised what that little beast can do in the studio just with miking techniques and a dash of effects !!

    To give you an example of what I'm talking about with a little amp in the studio, give this a listen. I did this with the Champ close miked and another about 10 feet away raised high to catch the ambiance, I used a 60 Strat with stock pups and a dash of verb on it...nothing else. Volume on the Champ was at about 9.

    Who keeps telling you this stuff? ValveKings don't suck, neither do SG Specials.
