I currently have a valve jr combo and i am less than thrilled at the tone that it gives me outta my 08 Am St. Strat. i was thinking a Fender Blues Jr. suggestions are welcome only restrictions is
(1) less than 500
(2) Tube ONLY

and reverb would be nice. thanks for the help.

I'd find a used blues jr swap the tubes and get a nice jensen clone from tedweber.com. That should be under 500.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
What kind of blues tone do you want?
as far as blues tone i am looking for a very fendery clean sound and a SRV ish kind of overdrive.. i should mention that i have an Seymour Duncan SFX-03 Twin Tube Classic for overdrive and it's ****in amazing so the amps OD doesn't have to be great... just the cleans.
I think the blues jr should do ya well.

Have you tried an EQ with your current setup? You might be surprised the difference it could make as a short term solution...


edit: I don't know if you're in the US or not, but musician's friend has the blues junior on scratch n' dent sale right now!
