Hi everyone,
I'm writing from England. I've seen a Fender Blues Junior for sale on ebay. It's made for the American market ( ie 110v not 240v that we use domestically in the UK). There seem to be two easy solutions one is a step down transformer and the other is a voltage converter. I want it for portability so I don't want to have to carry a heavy additional bit of kit. As it's only 15W would a 45W voltage converter be plenty good enough? Are there other issues I need to think about? What about mains hum? We have 50Hz mains cycle.
Thanks,
Mark

Well I won't answer your question  but I think you can avoid this especially if you're looking for portability, there are tons of good 15W amps in Europe you may pay a bit more though...

Talk to your local Fender dealer. this model should be available in the UK although it may have a slightly different model name.

I see that this thread is a bit old but anyway, I live in London and see new listings of Blues Juniors (with local power specs) come up on eBay just about every day. I bought one recently..gorgeous smooth warm sound...I think Ted would have loved them.

Goldglob,
Yes I do believe Ted had a favorite Blues Jr.  I made a few mods to mine to get a bit more clean headroom and more bass. Changing the speaker helped make it bloom a bit more and solved the slightly boxy low end. Glad you found one and like it. all the best,
Tim

The 15w rating is of the output of the amp, not the total power drain of the amplifier itself. I have a 15watt Epiphone valve amp and its total power consumption is 80 watts.
Check the back off the amp or the manual to get the total power consumption for the device.
