Dave Friedman teamed up with Jerry Cantrell and captured the Alice In Chains guitarist’s iconic tone and ferocity in the Friedman JJ-100 - Cantrell's first ever signature amp. The JJ-100 was an instant success. Not being the types to leave a great thing alone, they decided to cram all that punishing tone and grind into a stage-friendly 20-watt monster. Introducing, the Friedman JJ-Junior.
The JJ-Junior still gives you the same 2-channel, EL-powered tone that has carved out a legendary place in rock. All of the saturated, complex harmonic overtones are still lurking inside, as well as the AC30-like cleans. At 20 watts, the JJ-Junior lets you take the stage, studio, or jam session with total confidence.
Jerry and Dave spent years perfecting the "JJ" sound. Now, you can have the same tonal experience, in a smaller format, without sacrificing the attention to detail that goes into every Friedman amplifier.
The JJ Junior features and internal load and cab-simulated XLR output. Comparing this analog circuit to some of the most intricate computer-based IRs, Dave achieved a direct output you can proudly send to front of house or use in the studio. The JJ Junior also allows you to play "silently," meaning you can safely play the amp WITHOUT having a speaker cabinet connected. The XLR output includes a ground-lift, level, and center/edge of speaker cone simulation switches.
The JJ Junior was specifically designed to take pedals well especially boosts, ODs, phasers, flangers, tremolos, and wahs. The ultra-transparent buffered, series effects loop takes time-based effects pedals and rack units equally well. This is the exact same FX loop Friedman uses on all its amplifiers including the legendary BE-100. The head cabinet features beautiful black Tolex, with Baltic Birch construction and the same grille cloth used on the original JJ-100.

Why was my package refused?
There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:
Packs a punch for a small amp & the two modes give a great range of sounds. I tend to avoid most el84 amps, but this thing sounds great! Prymaxe delivered great value with their promo price as well.
I've owned this amp for a couple months now, and I couldn't be happier with it. The JJ Jr. has a special fidelity and clarity to the sound that is refreshing to play. I own a Victory V40 Deluxe (which I love), and I'm finding that I plug into the JJ Jr. way more often. I highly recommend pairing the JJ Jr. with a 2x12 Vintage 30 cab. Like many who have considered this amp, I was nervous about the lack of controls on the clean channel, but I've been blown away by the way Friedman has voiced this channel. I find that the bright switch and presence control are more than enough to cover the EQ needs for the clean channel. Set-and-forget, volume to taste, and it's beautiful chime and sparkle for days. The two gain channels live up to Friedman's reputation for extraordinary modified Marshall crunch and lead tones. Don't know if it sounds like Jerry Cantrell or not; that's not why I bought this amp. I bought the amp for incredible versatility/tone/clarity all in a 20-watt package, and this amp certainly delivers. Unfortunately, I have not been able to turn the volume up to a proper gig level yet, but the tone of bedroom-to-near-gig volumes has been exceptional. I have gigged with the amp once, and it was up there with some of the best live tones I have ever had. I also must praise the effects loop. I run a Meris Mercury 7 in the loop, and it sounds so natural and clean--the dry tone doesn't change when you use the effects loop. Well done, Friedman!
