epiphone Valve Junior Tube Amplifier Head

Sound Quality

I play mostly an older 1987 Ibanez shredder through Boss ME 50, Aphex Excieter and Roctron Nitro. Also DOD Stero Crossover which works well as an EQ.


I am no guru with electronics at all. I put off installing it for 3-4 months. But once you open the amp and get started, you'll find you have to do some thinking. It takes less than an hour once you start soldering. Probably 30-40 minutes for the complete amateur. I've never soldered much in my life and upon completion I felt like a pro. It's that simple. Seemingly very complicated upon inspection (without experience) but once done you can easially Master it over and over without instructions.

General Comments

Pros criticize the living hell out of this mod. It is probably $5 worth of components.


But if you are an amateur you don't know what components work, and what don't. Plus an amateur has zero guidance.


This kit helps the amateur save about 20-30 hours of investigating, and that is what makes it worth $.
