This is the 15w family hot rod, but like all fender, it sends more than a 15w amp common lamps.

Connectivity too limited: a small loop effect would have been really nice

UTILIZATION

The sound is good right now, we're in big fender, mini version of course. Very intuitive operation with a wide range (fenderienne course). Function thickened fat sound, adding a little extra overdrive. Runs on old ...

So do not expect the switch to have a fat clean sound and its drive, it will use the volume knob on your guitar.

SOUNDS

Good. It is the family hot rod. In theory anyway! The hot rods are a bit caricatured in fender (I think the deluxe), can be closer to the twins, quite enjoyable in crunch. The major difference comes from the power tubes that are EL84 (EL34 close of JCM800) unlike traditional 6L6 brand. Suddenly, the bass is less present. The advantage: a more present and more punchy (a small side jcm 800 I tell you). If you play power trio, your rhythms are less greasy, but suddenly, when you switch to lead the overall mix is ​​not balanced.

Great advantage over the Hot Rod, it does not distort the sound of your guitar. We can get classic Fender sounds, but also to make the world of old marshall (I think the JTM45 Clapton Blues Breakers period).

I forgot: Class A = zero parasite!

OVERALL OPINION

So if you looking for a small fender that does not lock you in the sounds of Stevie Ray Vaughan (like the Hot Rod in my opinion), and allow you to touch other styles (jazz, without blushing! And rock with overdrive upstream) is a killer!

You can do the SRV, but with a gibson, you can approach sounds BB King for example. The amp is versatile enough to provide clear audio on types "Hellecasters.

Also note that, like all Fender basses are well warmed by the preamp. This means that in overdrive, with a guitar with a level of output result, rhythm and solos in the bass will sound a little porridge. Short, clear sound even with a distortion pedal, you can not get a big popping sound clean. Well yes: it's the Blues Junior!

It is the only fender that have convinced me 100% (small flaws are not so serious) unless they come out the same in version 30 or 50W. A MUST!
