The Blues Jr. should be fine for practicing with a band and by yourself at home. Also, as long as you mic it up, it should be okay for gigs. The Blues Deluxe will have better headroom, and will be able to play louder without a mic.

If you want cleans at high volumes, it'd be worth saving up for the Blues Deluxe, or even a Peavey Classic 30. The Blues Jr will break up at gigging volume, I think.

Buy used!

You should be able to find a used Blues Deluxe for the price of new Blues Jr. Look around.

The Blues Jr is great for band practices, that level's its sweet spot. You can use the BJ at home too, while the Deluxe is loud.

i didn't like the BJ, those knobs felt so fragile... they arent attached to the chassis...
and the deluxe isn't too loud for home practice

TS, i also had to choose between those two and you can see what i chose.
it's worth the extra, it sounds better, and you can gig with it clean if you want too.
it's fine for home practising too. and it has 2 inputs tooo which can be handy.
i strongly recommend the blues deluxe oh an d another thing, if you want od from the BJ, then you'll have to get earplugs or a pedal, but the BD has built-in od.

I've tried the BJ, and I'm getting one real soon. Great amp, and the cleans are great. When cranked, it'd sound sweeeet

I love my BJr. Can't beat it on cleans and warm, tube-y overdrive. I've been able to play mine with my band for practices and such, but as for gigs it'll need to be mic'ed. But still, it's hard to beat a BJr. + a Shure SM57. I also liked the Blues Deluxe, but decided on the BJr. and couldn't be happier right now.
