epiphone Valve Junior Tube Amplifier Head

Sound Quality

It doesn't sound great. Play through it with a MIM Fender fat strat. For cleans it sounds dull and lifeless, with absolutely no sparkle. It gets dirty at around 11-o-clock and just sounds harsh. The overdrive is very unsmooth and really doesn't suite my tastes at all. Maybe with different tubes it could sound better, or properly EQed with a pedal or rack. It takes pedals alright, but it still doesn't sound great. My other amp is a Fender Blues Junior and just putting a distortion pedal through that amp sounds much better than this one. I haven't sold it, but I just keep loaning it to friends so I don't have to keep it around. So I play it sometimes, but I haven't even kept it at my house for the past two and a half years, I like it so little. Marshall solid-state amps sound better in most cases.


It's mostly stored, so never really had any problems with it.

General Comments

Meh. I am unimpressed. If it were lost or stolen I would be indifferent.
