Session Blues Baby - Christmas present is ordered.....

  • I am going to see how I get on with this.  It's a solid state amp and is physically identical to the Fender Blues Junior - you just get the chassis.  As a first step, I'm just going to swap the guts of my BJ for the new amp and try it at a few gigs.

    If we get along and if funds permit, next year I'll get a cabinet and speaker for the Session and return the Fender innards to their rightful place and have a backup amp.

    It seems we are going to be doing quite a bit of gigging in 2015 and some recording (woohoo!) and I have been messing around lately with different amps and set ups.  I'm hoping this will be the right sound/weight/format etc for the majaority of gigs.  Wish me luck, Im going in..... :)
    I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?

  • I wish I'd ordered it in time for Christmas Rob!

    I'm really looking forward to this - one of the few times I have bought kit without actually trying it, although "back in the day" my mate had a Sessionette I used to play through occasionally.

    Full report to follow........

  • That sounds like a fun little amp. Doesn't Brew have a Sessionette or two? I remember someone have one or two, and absolutely loving it.

  • Brew has one, I used to have a few and I still believe to this day that Stewart Ward got it right straight off.
    The blues Baby is the natural progression and is finding huge popularity with some very surprising names. But then should we be surprised? A certain Mr Clapton recorded most of one album using Session Amps, so I can't wait to hear David's reports. ;)

  • Couldn't resist a quick Frankenstein hookup!  The reverb is plugged into the unit in the blues junior that's lying on its front and the aux speaker output is plugged into the Marshall 1x12 bottom right.

    First impressions are very favourable - easy to dial a useable range of  sweet sounds and its very quiet indeed.  The presence switch gives almost a compression effect without adding toppiness.  Will report back with further and better particulars...
