Is there something that could be done, like change tubes or something, to allow the blues junior to attain decent metal tone? I'm kind of a tube newb, so I'm just curious as to what/if things can be done to change the way an amp sounds?

Don't get me wrong, I like the amp, it's just that I might be getting an old fender twin reverb from a friend for like 50 bucks cuz he has it laying around. (Doesn't play anymore). So I'm just wondering I guess, if modifications could be made, or If I'd just be better off trading in for something else.

I'd like to be able to mod the blues junior if possible, as it's a low-watt tube amp and it's excellent for home volumes.

You can't replace the tube(s) and speaker(s).
^ I agree, get a EHX Metal Muff or something.
New Setup:
Epiphone Les Paul Custom (Black SG w/ 3 Hum.)
Peavey Classic 50
EHX Metal Muff
Cry Baby 535Q

So, Having the option to trade the blues jr. for a valveking 112.... good option? (The valveking capable of decent tone at a low volume?)

the MM doesnt make the blues jr metal.

it's an amp that doesnt like to be pushed that way.

imo, i would trade it in for a classic 30.
i'm not crazy about Vks. but most of the time they sound better with a speaker swap.

i admit i've never played a 112 VK tho.
