I owned a BJR for years and never liked it. Boxy, farty, thin, muddy etc. -- all kinds of negative adjectives no matter which way I turned the settings. I bought it new when I was young and thought I had to have a tube amp. I kept it because I didn't think I'd get much for it in a trade towards a better amp. A few years ago, I bought a used PRRI and out went the BJR. No regrets. That being said, I did try out the SCX2 at a local jam (while I still owned the BJR) and really liked the clean channel. A while later, I tried one out at a local store and almost bought it as a knockabout amp for jams, except I already had the PRRI and a Peavey Bandit. Long story short, I'd go with the SCX2 over the BJR myself.
