Good news for DIY'ers – Indyguitarist.com has released a new DIY video and ebook download package that teaches the electronics novice how to modify the Fender Blues Junior Tube amps. The Blues Junior is a powerful and good sounding tube amp that is fairly inexpensive. It also is very similar in circuitry to many very popular “boutique” amps.
This system will show you from the ground up how to tweak your amplifier safely to make it as good or better than many of the boutique amps available for hundreds or even several thousand dollars more. There are tons of mods that allow you to tweak the amp to your needs.
You'll learn how to:
- Turn it into a Vox ac15
- Turn it into a 15 watt Marshall jcm800
- Make it less boxy by various methods, all tweakable to your needs
- Give it less mids
- Give it less highs
- Give it more bass
- Improve the reverb dramatically
- Add a presence control
- Get a clearer tone with crisper sizzling highs (not ear piercing!)
- Includes mods for all versions of the amp
Included is a complete safety guide including videos to teach you how to safely work on any tube amp, and the entire package is written and created in such a way that even the most “electronics newbie” will easily understand.
Also included is a new “where to buy parts” guide that includes catalog numbers for mouser.com.
It is priced at $19.95 on their website or $12.95 for “FX Freak” members (those who subscribe to their free online newsletter). In addition, they offer a 7 day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.
