After listening to the sound clips the Valve Junior sounds quite different from a Fender Champ and without a pedal a bit more versitile. Still has a very bluesy sound to it but also produces a Vox-like chime which means slap a pedal in front and they sky's the limit with this amp. This amp could be the perfect bedroom tube amp.
