Black,stock. My 2nd one. (had a tweed one) I feel a real connection to these and the Hot Rod series amps,my first "serious" amps since I started playing again. Love 'em both, and I'm also from Jersey so I'M IN!!!

It's always nice to know that I'm in good company.

I have a black 1994 Blues Jr. that I bought used for $250 last fall. It sounds great and doesn't have the reverb noise. As far as I know it is stock and I don't plan on making any mods to it. If it ain't broke, then don't fix it! I use it for practice (it gives really nice low volume distortion/reverb). It sounds good with Strats,Teles and humbuckers.


I know what you're thinking!

Ok, I've had a tweed, a black one and currently have a blonde, so I think that makes me a Capo!
After speaker switchouts I stuck with the stock Eminence, but I do use a 12at7 or a 5751 for the phase inverter depending on my mood. I pity the guys who wake up with Marshall heads in their beds;-)

Tweed '96, Mojotone speaker, JJ Tesla tubes accross the board. Bought used. No reverb hiss.

Had a black one stock, sold it, then figured out I really missed the amp and bought the tweed one. The black one I bought new and I found the stock speaker dark and muffled. Maybe I didn't give it enough time to break it in.

I was ready to change out the speaker for a V30 or Weber C12NQ when I got the tweed one. I thought the Mojotone was a "cheap" replacement speaker. However I really like the Mojo, kinda has a "tweed" tone (yea I know it's all in my head).

The amp doesn't have the reverb of my SFPR but it has an attitude I like. Build quality is marginal but if you take it for what it is you can really have some fun with it - but then again you guys already know that..........

mine's a recent black tolex ,stock...not much hiss...absolute killer mojo tone. i am the envy of all my buddies. for straight up clean tone at a reasonable volume this amp is hard to beat.

black, stock...tone for days with no hum...use it for at home playing and occasional jams. Love this amp!

currently a stock blond. planning to take advantage of the unused stage of the 2nd preamp tube and add a bright switch. i'll let you all know how this turns out.

Black, stock, home/practice use. Had a buzz in the control panel, fixed. Hum in the reverb? Hey, Foogeddaboudit!

Proud owner right here. It's a black 98 for practice use. I replaced the stock 12AX7s with Sovtek 12AX7 LPSs. I think they really sound great in it. I've been toying around with the idea of some new power tubes; I hear teslas are good. I've never had any of the dreaded reverb hum, whew!

I have discovered that the reverb hum only occurs in certain applications, like when I'm plugged into a power strip. Right from the wall, quiet like a mouse!

I'm in-- a new black tolex, stock purchased about a month ago--no reverb hum-though I don't turn the reverb much past 2--I use it mainly at home and jamming with friends-still don't have the perfect setting dialed in yet-the midrange contol seems to give a lot of variation to the tone-having fun experimenting with the tone controls and master-and volume controls for different sounds.

...found one used after my too loud/heavy hot rod deluxe was stolen. stock, black. no hiss, no rattle, no buzz. sound techs and mega-stack guitarists alike cannot believe how enormous it sounds on stage. unable to push the volume past four. peavey dirty dog and sansamp gt-2 for distortion flavours. even my delay pedal sounds good in front, despite the lack of an fx loop.
