Fender Blues Junior

The Blues Junior is a professional tube guitar amplifier introduced in 1995 by the Fender company. It is aimed at achieving the warm, tube-driven tone common in many styles of American blues and blues rock dating back to the 1950s, while remaining both portable and affordable. Fender frequently releases limited editions of the Blues Junior. All have the same electronic components and specifications but have cosmetic changes and often a different speaker, at varying prices. The Fender Blues Junior is most similar to the Fender Blues Deluxe, which adds a “drive” channel, an effects loop, and uses 6L6GC output tubes for 40 watts of rated output The Fender Blues Junior was introduced after the Fender Pro Junior, but has entirely different circuitry other than EL84 output tubes rated at 15 watts.

The Bassman was designed for the first mass-production electric bass, the Fender Precision Bass. In 1990 Fender began producing a reissue of the 1959 Bassman model 5F6A, known as the ’59 Bassman. The LTD version has a lacquered tweed covering and 4×10 inch Jensen speakers instead of the Eminence speakers used in the earlier ’59 Bassman reissue series.

In 2009, Fender introduced the latest reincarnation of the original late ’50s tweed Bassman amp, the Bassman TV series, which includes four sub-models such as the TV 10, TV Duo 10, TV 12 and TV 15. The evolution of the Bassman amplifier followed that of the Fender amplification line. Many famous amplifier manufacturers, including Marshall and Traynor, based their first batch of amplifiers upon the 5F6A Bassman, in examples such as Marshall’s JTM45 (a clone of Bassman, using British-equivalent parts), and Traynor’s YBA-1 (head form of Bassman).

No matter what stage your music is at, you need a quality music stand for your practice sessions. For parents who want to encourage their child’s interest in playing a musical instrument, buying the music stand comes after first helping your child find the right instrument. No matter what kind of instrument you and your child finally settle on, the learning process will progress to the point where he or she learns to read music. The child will need to put their sheet music on a stand. Your local music store will help you and your child pick out the most appealing stand. Think of how music stands function in orchestras. Performances would certainly prove more difficult and uncomfortable for the musicians.

The music stand remains an important element in the life of a musician. For children new to music, the stands help them learn and improve their efforts as quickly and pleasurably as possible.

History Of The Jackson Guitar

The Company by the name of Charvel Guitar Repair made the first Jackson guitar for Randy Rhoads of Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot fame. Grover Jackson and Wayne Charvel were partners of the company with Charvel having his name on the guitars. Speaking of headstocks, the Jackson headstock is very similar to the Gibson Explorer’s droopy designed headstock in shape except the Jackson is pointier at the end of it. The Jackson guitar is also known for the shark fin design of their fret inlays.

The design of the Jackson guitar is sleek and stylish and fit the guitarists of that era perfectly. In 2002, the Jackson and Charvel Guitar Company were bought by Fender Guitars and moved to a factory in Corona, California.

Today the Jackson guitar is still very popular, especially in the Heavy Metal genre.
