I say try them out and see for yourself.

actually i will buy it online overseas so its a tough choice as i will pay high shipping charges and also importing fees.

From personal experience I like the Blues Jr. But I've heard good stuff about Laneys and Carvins as well.


Go with your gut.

I say the blues Jr. Its a grat amp, but the laney is up their too.. But the Fender beats it.

Well, what're you looking for from an amp?

The Blues Jr is perfect for cleans and warm+Fendery sounds, the Laney's cleans aren't as good but it has an OD channel (I think?)
Not tried the Carvin though.

Carvin's specs look good but never played one, so meh. Laney is tons better than the Fender though, imo. Cleans aren't any worse than on Fender, and it's overdrive blows Fender out of the water.

The Carvin looks really cool on paper. I particularly like the fact that it appears to be switchable from 16W to 5W, that'll come in handy at home. Carvin also has a solid reputation.

That said, the only one I'm personally familiar with is the Blues Jr., which I think is a terrific amp. If you think one of these others is better, then go for it!

what do you think of the carvin sound clips?

They're nice, but frankly soundclips are always going to sound nice - since they get touched up and all that, nobody would record a soundclip that'd sound like crap, y'know.

sure i know what you point is, but the clips very much often reveal the amp character if you know what i mean
