The Blues Jr. Lacquered Tweed takes Fender’s 15W gem and gives it the true vintage treatment with a lacquered tweed covering and a vintage-voiced 12″ Jensen speaker. Its golden tones are generated by an all-tube signal path using a pair of EL84 output tubes and 3 – 12AX7 preamp tubes. Add renowned Fender reverb, flexible controls, FAT switch for mid boost, and you’re in business. And just look at that chrome panel, that tweed finish with vintage-style brown and gold grille cloth, and those vintage pointer knobs!

Simply put, there’s really nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube amplifier. For decades, the tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps a defining and unmistakable voice, as heard on most professional recordings and performances of the past 60 years—the music you’ve known your whole life.
Among their many fine sonic attributes, Fender guitar amps like this one are prized in particular for their luscious spring reverb. For that wet, shimmering ambient sound ranging from subtle to cavernous, Fender lets you dial it in exactly to taste.
On its top-mount chrome control panel, this amp is equipped with a “Fat” switch that boosts midrange for pronounced tonal thickness.
