Hot rod power in a small package

The Blues Junior is part of Fender's Hot Rod series, and this relatively small 15-watt amp refuses to compromise on one thing above all: Sound. Equipped with three 12AX7 and two EL84 tubes, the compact one-channel combo delivers a sound similar to that of its more powerful bigger brothers. Whether it's clean or distorted, the unmistakable brilliance of the sound is undeniably there. The Blues Junior is also in no way inferior to the larger Fender amps in terms of design (except for the smaller format), and the cabinet features a classy black textured vinyl covering and an authentically aged silver grille cloth.

Everything a Blues guitarist could wish for

Blues by name, Blues by nature: The Fender Blues Junior IV has earned its moniker for a very good reason. Even when cranked up (especially with the Fat switch activated), it produces the kind of clean, warm sounds that players have come to expect. However, the amp can also deliver some pretty impressive distortion, allowing players to stray a little from the Blues. All in all, it is astonishing how many sounds can be coaxed from this combo, equipped as it is with just a few settings for reverb, master volume, middle, bass, and treble. From the clarity of this combo's layout, guitarists can see that the most beautiful sounds do not require the usual overkill of guitar amp features.

For guitarists who love vintage gear

If you're a guitarist who wants a space-saving guitar combo without having to make compromises in terms of sound, the Fender Blues Junior IV is the perfect choice. There is no denying that finding a mid-priced combo that still delivers a full-fledged, authentic Blues sound is not always that easy. Whenever the stage beckons, this amp's 15-watt power stage will also be able to provide an impressive amount of volume without any unwanted breakup while playing clean, so you can enjoy its outstanding sound on both shimmering clean solos and earthy Blues Rock passages. The price of some Fender amps can make many guitarists shy away, but in this case, you get a mid-priced product that delivers an outstanding sound.

About Fender

Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary guitar and amplifier manufacturers of all time. The company was founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender († 1991), whose innovative ideas brought a breath of fresh air into the musical world. His Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass are not only classics – they also continue to shape the styles of musicians in countless genres to this day. Timeless Fender amplifier models such as the Bassman, Twin, Deluxe, and Princeton also enjoy a stellar reputation. Besides maintaining its classic product portfolio, however, the company is also constantly developing new products that make Fender a driving force in today’s music industry.

Fender sound for Fender fans

For a long time now, legions of guitarists have been captivated by the bright yet warm sound of Fender amplifiers. Their combination of warm bass and brilliant treble response produces a sound that plenty of devotees know just how to harness - particularly when it comes to the Blues. However, though its name might suggest otherwise, the Blues Junior IV is by no means just a Blues amp: This compact combo is also capable of delivering a range of tones that will win over Country, Funk, Jazz, and Rockabilly players, among other genres, so its range of potential users goes far beyond Blues circles.

What a fabulous little 'grown up' amp
Mombasaflash 26.02.2020
I had a tweed Blues Junior in 1996 and was not particularly impressed with it. It just sounded like a small weedy amp. I sold it and bought a Blues DeVille - which I really liked.

This Mark 4 Blues Junior is night and day different. I am sure that the 12" loudspeaker has contributed much towards its 'grown up' sound, but I suspect that Fender have essentially taken a Blues Deluxe circuit and removed a few features (Drive option, Send & Return etc.) to reduce the physical size of the circuit board in order to give this little amp a very impressive authority.

It stands up surprisingly well against my 2002 first generation Bad Cat Cub llR, only lacking a bit of definition in the low mids - which may well be addressed with a better 12" loudspeaker.

Really nice little amp and man enough for small stages, not just hiding in bedrooms like the early version.

This amp is a whole new amp. It has allmost nothign to do with the previous versions exept the name. Previous versions were famous for modding them better. They sounded icepicky in the treble side and bass was mushy with out any clear response. This new version is the opposite. It sounds huge despite the fysical dimensions. Its bright if you want but not icepicky, bass is huge and tight if you want to set it. If you crank it it, sound gets bigger and bigger and does not fall apart. Middle is capable to produce various sweet spots, depending what you want to emphasis. I ve been playing over 40 years and had them all. I have had this version IV for couple of weeks and still i allmost can not believe my ears. Boutique quality sounds and allmost impossible to find a poor sound of it. Building quality is nice. How durable it is, thats the only question mark. But Thomann has 3 years of warranty and because of that i feel safe with my purchase. Highly recommend to all players hobbyist and professionals.

ideale Huis-, Tuin-, en Keuken-amp
Jack Dalton 13.01.2022
Over het algemeen heb ik weinig tot niks slecht te zeggen over deze amp.

Praktisch betreft het formaat,
Typische warme lampen klank,
Mooie reverb,
Schakelbaar drive-kanaal met bijgeleverde foot-switch,

Ik zou wel aanbevelen er een flight-case bij te nemen zodat je niet om de vijf seconden je lampen moet vervangen, voornamelijk als hij veel de baan op gaat.

conclusie: zie titel

Rock on!
