    I like a small stereo setup with two small combo amps. Which one channel Marshall will pair nicely with the Blues Junior Tweed?

    Genre, Blues/Rock.

    The new Studio combos would be perfect for that. Wasn’t a fan of the C5 or Origin myself. Love the Studio Classic head

    You could get volume, eq’ing levels, together in a flash when you pair up the same amps!
    I know this , because I do this!
    Cheers Mitch

    Exactly. Personally, I've never liked Fender paired with anything but another Fender. Marshall + VOX (or Matchless), absolutely! If anything, Fender + Boogie. A Victoria would work as well, but those are some high dollar amplifiers.

    love the Lennon quote!

    I would go with another Fender or a Mesa Boogie. Maybe you could also
    get a Marshall and do a wet/dry/wet rig? That would be the best of
    both worlds!!! Put the Fenders on the outside and put your cleans and time based effects through those and put your dirt into the Marshall in the middle. Voila'!

    * Just be aware of your phase cancellation and your ground isolation. There are plenty of pedals out there to accomplish this task. Good luck. Cheers.
    Sorry about the underlined bold. Just playing with the functions on this site.

    A vote for the 2525C. Very versatile and comes with my personal favorite, a 25 Watt Celestion Greenback.

    Origin or studio classic, DSL maybe with speaker change.

    I used to have a stereo rig like you're talkin about: a Pro Junior and a Laney LC15R.
    Used a Radial Switchbone to control the rig. I loved that setup. You could make a helluva racket with those two little monsters. They sounded great together. The mid-heavy Junior and the more scooped LC fit like puzzle pieces.

    Switching the amps in and out of phase sounded so cool....great for making leads jump out front.

    It took a while but for Christmas Santa brought me a DSL20CR. It is not delivered yet, ETA is somewhere next week.
    I will use the Classic channel just on the edge of breakup. (Same as I do with the BJ).
    I will first start to find a nice tone using it on it's own.
    I will use the Lehle Little Dual to split my guitar signal and build my pedalboard from there.

    If needed I will do a speaker change.. But first things first.

    Thanks for al the info.
