So I’ve been intrigued by the Pro Junior IV since they were announced at NAMM. I own two hand-wired Fender tweeds, a 57 Deluxe (which just got a Tone Tubby Red installed) and a 57 Champ (stock 8” Weber Alnico), both of which I love and play regularly. I also have a Fender 63 Reverb Tank (6G15) in tweed. So yeah, the tweed styling on the Pro Junior IV was certainly part of its allure. I have one EL84 amp, a 5 watt Gibson GA-5 and have been looking for something with a bit more EL84 horsepower. I’ve owned Vox amps, including the AC-15 hand-wired, but have never really warmed up to the Vox tone. So my local music shop has had a Pro Junior IV on the floor for a couple of months. I go in often, fiddle with various guitars and plug them into the PJIV. Its tone begins to grow on me so yesterday I ask to take it home for a night to play in my music room with my guitars and pedals. Today I return the demo and pick up a new one in the box. As soon as I got it home I swapped tubes. I installed TAD EL84s, a JJ 12AY7 in V1, and a JJ 5751 in V2. As you might imagine, I like low gain as I mostly play clean - chord/melody jazz. I also play 1950’s style Chicago blues. If I’m looking for some grit and grind I use OD pedals like the Fulltone FD3 and the Wampler Tumnus. I’m really like the tone I get from alnico speakers. I’m also keen on 10” speakers. My Princeton Reverb with a Celestion Gold 10 is really my go to amp. I like the Jensen P10R in the Pro Junior IV, but will, no doubt swap speakers down the road. I have a 10” Eminence Lil Buddy hempcone in storage (it resided in the Princeton for a couple of years). I’m also thinking about a Tone Tubby Humboldt. Anyway… I suppose I’ve gotten a bit long winded. I also know that this post would be incomplete without the obligatory photo so here ya go. That's the 57 Deluxe next to it and the 63 Reverb beyond it. The 57 Champ sits just to the right of the 63 Reverb, just out of the frame.
