epiphone Valve Junior Tube Amplifier Head

Sound Quality

I don't want to say that these amps always sound great, because they don't. The combo is kinda muddy. One of mine has too much gain and the clean sounds like crap because of it. The new one from GC is too noisy. The one I am planning on keeping sounds very good, however. I've used a Gibson Les Paul Classic (doesn't give well with any of these amps), A Fender Thinline Telecaster (perfect match!), A Gibson SG (sounds ok) and an Epiphone Les Paul Custom (I've got high output pickups in this guitar, definitely not a match for this amp).

I believe anything semi-hollow would sound beautiful through it.

I also use this amp with the matching 1x12 Cabinet. This amp sounded better through my Marshall 1960a cabinet on all three accounts.


The cabinet is built for very solid. Has an expensive feel to it.

General Comments

I wish that these amps all sounded the same. If mine were to break or be stolen, I probably wouldn't replace it.. Only because I probably wouldn't find one that sounded like the one I like.
