Rebuilds for the Fender Blues Junior

Your Fender Blues Junior can be rebuilt into a boutique quality hand wired amp! Carl's Custom Amps will turn your Pro Junior or Blues Junior into true tone machines.  We completely hand wire them with proper layout and a classic circuit of your choosing.  We always replace the output transformer with Classic Tone USA and  replacing the power transformer is optional for most mods. All you need to do is send in your chassis and we'll rebuild it and ship it back to you to re-install.  In some cases we'll recommend that you also replace the speaker the speaker for the best sound.  Contact us today for pricing and discuss which rebuild is right for you!

" Carl

The amp is phenomenal. Sounds fantastic with a clean Strat. No pedals or eq or anything needed. Perfect low volume amp. So expressive. So much nuance hiding in my guitar I never heard before. I wish my cabinet was fancier now but it looks good with my white Strat and black case. Very cool. Thanks so much!

"Good morning Carl.

Just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful job on my Blues Junior re-do; into a Blonde 20. Been experimenting with it over the last few days and some of my buddies are jealous of the clean sound and all the headroom. I also have a pedal board with  mostly MXRs and a few hand builts. Really enjoying the amazing richness coming from the amp.

 

I'm also impressed with the quality of your work. All the solder joints look super clean and the chassis config. is pro in my book. I can tell you do this with a great deal of care.

 

Again thanks so much.

"Your amplifier service is really amazing!

This amp sounds magical. I'm not kidding, I couldn't stop playing it.

I'm really, really happy with the end result. 

Who needs reverb?

 

Thanks again,
