  • Ace!! I'd LOVE to have a go with this sometime David. ;) ;)

    I feel a road trip coming on - let me have some dates when you are free..... :)
    I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?

  • So Johnny, Session amps were a really nicely designed and made solid state product.  Lately the man behind the brand has been producing a chassis-only amp that is a straight swop physically for a blues junior and intended to be an upgrade on the fender product.  The amp in the pictures is my Christmas present!

    I have taken the fender innards out of my blues junior and put the clone in its place.

    I gave it a quick blast once I'd done it and the results are great - warm and open with a sweet sounding crunch without much knob twiddling at all.

    This Saturday, I am due to record a CD in a local studio with the Rhythm and Blues Orchestra.  I am 90% convinced that this is the amp I'll take.

    Next step will be to acquire a cabinet, speaker and reverb tank from Award-Session once funds permit.  Then I'll put the new amp with the new bits and return the fender innards to the fender cab.

    As I've been mucking about trying the new amp firstly through a Marshall cab and then through the fender speaker, I'm starting to appreciate why people say the blues junior is limited by the relatively cheap standard speaker.  Hmmmmm.........

    If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

  • That's a great clip Rob - great tone and a classy player.

    Meanwhile I have given the amp a good workout tonight and am very pleased indeed.  I am definitely going to use it for Saturday's session along with my Les Paul.  They are a great match.  I'll need a swampy tremolo sound for "hip shake" and a rockabilly slap back sound for "rock this town".  I tried out my Daneltro tremolo and Fender Delay pedal and both sound great.  For the rest of the album my usual recipe of a handful of grit and a pinch of reverb will do the job without needing any fx.

    Happy, happy DJ! :) :)

  • Not out of the question Johnny........

    It'd be great to include you in the get together somehow.

    BTW have you spotted that Mr Tiptonamps is gigging again over your way - fancy going to see him some time?

    Sounds like a good idea to go and see Trev's band . I will try and sneak Rob   ,covertly over the boarder into the Black Country ,if he's up for it .. it's a very dangerous mission but I reckon Captain Rob Manaring ,the most decorated officer in the Roman empire 😎 would be up for it :)
