The Final Mojo
clear-but-not-harsh top end. Jazzers who like
tubes will really dig the Junior. The touch
sensitivity is very good, and you can get such
a nice dynamic range here.
Playing around with the balance between
the Master and the Volume, I was able to
dial up more grind. What you get is a very
earthy sound. This is not a metal amp.
Rather, it’s more for blues, roots-rock, or
Americana tones. But it really is rich and
full, with lots of harmonic content—my cup
o’ tea, for sure. Another great thing is that
you have so much control over tones just by
using the volume knob on your guitar—way
more fun and expressive than stompbox
distortion. Dialing around with the two
Volumes gives a good range of grit, but
even cranked all the way it has more of a
classic, gritty grind—think Billy Gibbons or
George Thorogood. It’s just hard to beat
that power-amp distortion (as opposed to
preamp distortion). And, being in such tight
control over your dynamics and the cool way
it gets grittier as you turn up—I love it!
you want juicy, classic tones.
