First tube amp since 1971! (Not counting various Hammond organ or Leslie speaker innards.) Man, what a feeling hearing that nice round sound again when I played the first notes from the Baja through those glowing glass things. I don't gig, so the BJr is perfect in the house. If I get into surf or spy music I'll have to replace the reverb tank, but that's minor. Otherwise, I like the sounds I can get out of this amp. It's got plenty of volume, that's for sure. Wish I could see the tubes glowing while I played -- hey, maybe I need to find an Ampeg flip-top! Anyway, I'm enjoying the heck out of the honeymoon with this little package of goodness.
