In this episode Daniel and Mick use a bunch of different boosts and ODs through the venerable Fender Blues Junior, in this case a version III model.
It’s an extremely popular small valve amp for good reason - excellent value for money, a range of good tones and of course, highly portable while being plenty loud enough for small gigs (and big ones if you’re mic’d!)

The point of the video is to help you get a handle on what kinds of boosts, overdrives and boosts might suit your gain needs, depending on your playing style, volume level and of course your guitars. We make some interesting discoveries along the way!
