Nothing lacking in the DR..I guess my post was unclear. .I just want a second, smaller amp for other purposes and not feeling great about the Blues Junior.What are you not getting out of your DR that you’re trying to find elsewhere? I picked up a PRRI (65) as a smaller alternative to my late 60s 40-watt Fenders. I just find it feels weak compared to what I’m used to. I’ve modded it so it’s working as good as it can. Sounds way better through a 1x12 cab and I play it clean, so basically I’m better off with a DR or my big Bandmaster Reverb through a 1x12 cab.
Now, I did pick up a 15 watt Dr Z and it gave me something totally different that complements my Fenders really well.
But if you really want a PRRI, I’ll be moving mine along, but I don’t see how it would really help someone who already has a DR.
Talking about tweakability, this is one versatile amp. No need for the cat tweak, but it helps ...There's a black star artist 15 for sale still I think. I sold my blues junior for that amp. A lot more tweak ability, clean headroom and tighter bass. I've tried quite a few 15watt amps and I think that the artist 15 is honestly one of the best out there.
That's a fair point for sure. The whole mod thing worked out well for me both amp sound and price wise luckily. I do get why people wouldn't be happy with the amp though. Everyone has a different sound.Makes me laugh that every thread on the Blues Junior is filled with awe as how good an amp it is. But it is also filled with as many post, if not more, about how there's always something that needs to be modified for it to sound good.
Not what I'd call a good amp. A good kit maybe ...
