Thinking of getting a second amp exclusively to use with my Les Paul / SG

I play in 2 bands one, is a wedding/corp band where I play a tele/LP through a Line 6 Flextone III (POD XT amp) and the other is a more casual affair where we play blues, rock and new country.

We played this weekend with the second band using a blues junior for the tele and the Flextone for the LP and the tone on the Valve Blues Junior just blew the Flextone away.

So as my singer also plays guitar, and we need 2 amps anyway thinking of getting a second valve amp and dedicating thank to the LP with its own pedalboard.

thinking along the lines of 15-20 watts.

Maybe the egnater tweaker or bogner alchemist ?

Opinions ?

Why not another blues jr? Lesters sound good thru them.Or maybe a Vox AC15.

Dr Z has several in that wattage range...Carmen Ghia, Maz Jr, Monza, Z-28. Depends on what flips your switch the best...12AX7's or EF86's for preamp, EL84's or 6V6's for power.
They're all great and unique.

I'd like to get something diff to the BJ for variety

Thought of the class 5 but though 5 watts wouldnt be enough on stage even miced.

Will research the Carr and Dr.Z but dont think I can get them this side of the pond.

Reissue Princeton? The Vox AC15C1 is pretty nice, once you dial it in where you want it. The Princeton will be a LOT lighter...

Bugera sounds a little too much like it might be the Italian word for "booger."

I have a class 5 head, plenty loud for micing.

I used it last week when I sat in with an old band I used to be a member of, before I left for Louisianna.

It had enough volume to hear on stage and, well miced is miced.

Might kick the tires on one.

I've been playing my LP through my Carr Rambler and my modified CVR lately. Sounds sweet.

LP's always sound good through a Twin Reverb, too.

dont really want anything made by behringer with valves although i dont mind there mixers etc.

seem like I need to go and test the class 5 as well as the egnater rebel 20 and tweaker

vibrolux and twin will be be way too loud at 40 and 65 watts (and heavy)


princeton looks like the ticket but might be out of budget
thanks for the comments

If you're looking at the Marshall Class 5 you should also consider the Pro Junior. I have both and I find them to overlap a lot in their characteristics. New, the prices are close, but the ProJr is more compact and, at 15 W, is distinctly louder. I just set up both side by side with an a/b box, using my LP, no pedals in the way. Both deliver a nice crunchy overdrive when dimed, but there is a clarity that the ProJr has, partly due to volume, and in spite of the speaker and cabinet size difference. If I had to pick one it would be the ProJr.

not sure what a deluxe reverb would go for- a lp drri and a pedal are a good combo--just played at a blues jam with that and got a lot of compliments.

Man up and get something with real El-34's, preferably 4 of them. And a 4x12 cabinet.

"how would the pro junior differ to the blues junior"

Blues Jr- more expensive, bigger speaker, reverb, master volume...there are ongoing Pro Junior and Blues Junior threads going on in the post 1985 Fender amps forum.
