I am buying a fender blues junior and I know that this thing overdrives by crankin the volume. I want to know what kind of tubes would get it some more gain when i crank the volume? Here are the tubes already in it: 3 X 12AX7,
2 X EL84,

thanks

Tubes arent gonna get you more gain with a true tube amp (no distortion)
Gear:
1980 Gibson SG Standard Cherry Red
Ibanez TM-71 Talman Artcore Semi-Hollow
2003 Tom Delonge Fender Strat Seafoam Green
Traynor YCV40

You could boost it with an overdrive

you can boost it, you can get tubes that break up earlier but they dont make that big of a difference IMO, you can bias it hotter to get more power amp distortion, and i have seen a few of them that have been hot rodded to where they can get some good hard rock distortion, but tat requires adding gain stages, which is a pretty major modification.

getting a booster pedal (NOT an overdrive) will make them break up at a lower volume. OD pedals are the smooth version of a distortion pedal.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.
