All lamp 20 Watts
For the rest see above

UTILIZATION

The use of simple and the manual I did not (amp bought used)
I do not see the point ...

SOUNDS

I bought it used in perfect condition
I plugged in and allowed to warm slightly before the test ... and there is
the foot with a total Epiphone Les Paul Studio!
settings ultra simple clear sound with minimal gain it
sounds great and cons as soon as you turn the gain ... this deposit
Severe!
I tried with no effect and its potential with its very large
a Les Paul
Blues rock and hard rock nickel cash it and I am surprised
the power of the beast, do not rely on the "20 watts" of an all-tube ...
I had read and heard only good things of this amp and you'll understand
I totally won over by this Epiphone Valve Senior.

OVERALL OPINION

Buy this morning and test this afternoon ... foot! I have tried others and
while in this one I like especially the "big" the first!
Value / prix...qui says better at this price??
More unfortunately, available in nine, but on occasion from time to time (combo or head) no brainer one board .... dark!

everything has been said.
super powerful amp in this category.
the sound is clear even at high volume, that's class.

UTILIZATION

super easy to find your sound.
it's hot, it's clear it works for lots of styles.
knob the "presence" is a bit strange but ...

SOUNDS

I use this amp in very different styles, sounds clear, jazz, folk, rock in surfing, punk.
it works.
I do not do with metal, but the cash really good hp I think we can do well saturate the beast with a few effects.

OVERALL OPINION

I tried, sold and resold full amp of this size and of this power.
(Fender blues junior, koch Studiotone, laney, tiny terror ...)
it is really perfect.
unthinkable a tube amp of this quality at this price ...

Every lamp, 20 watts
a pair of 6V6 power (typical)
3x 12AX7 prampli in which one dedicates the spring rverbe Please
1 between
Rglages: Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, presence, master, Rverb

UTILIZATION

Tutorial hyper simple
the manual! I pass, Epihone could make a little effort leaves add 1 euro to the price to provide a manual a bit more toff who would give some explanations for beginners
User familiaris with this type of hardware is rgale with all the possibilities offered by the 7 knobs rglages
For my part I work mainly with sounds bright, clean, so it's very fast for an amateur blues or rock I do not give him 15 minutes to find his sound (not pdalier effects connected
The user can confirm replacement of the unit by rverbe longer MODEL
there is room in the box.
For me it is perfect I put my zik rverb on 1.5 / 2 and I get no more than a shell of my sounds as I love them.
I use a Gibson Custom Artisan Lespaul III, an Epiphone ES175 on which I mount 2 P57S Gibson, Epiphone Broadway A with 2 P57S Gibson, A Jazz Django's Selmer ST48 1939 team.
It is a rgal I rediscover my guitars (the HP is the interior is not the fact trang) HP Eminence Lady Luck reproduced with a smoothness gniale string vibrations .

SOUNDS

This amp is the "amp that I've been waiting 40 years, I has a` 30-watt amp with Garen trmolo I used a Gibson ES335 TS.
The era n'tait sounds more jazzy then I sold the hardware quality of incomparrable times have changed I am old and I have made a comeback to the music I loved, and vacuum.
That amp! But no amps!, True! Without three bullets that pass on gadget sounds pourraves.
And this little gem that appears on the market at that price!
Rglages my (apartment) for mnager nerves my neighbor:
The gain 9 o'clock, treble 13h, 13h Medler, bass 8am, 9am presence, master 10am rverb 8.5 hours (with my jazz django 1939 Micro ST48 12), and I get notes bright with the small point of attack dorm-style sound is round and the entire spectrum deployments
I reinforce the bass a little with the ES175 and Broadway (a little less cash rson) I wear the bass is 13h and the remaining nickel rglages I adjusted the knobs with guitars.
My lespaul explodes on this amp and I have not finished exploring all the possibilities.
I have not found a single default of sonority



OVERALL OPINION

I have this amp for 2 weeks
I have used other amps "fender hot road" HIWATT DR201 "
Is looking for a little amp that I InFocus "Epiphone"
I bought there four months the Senior valve head + cabinet which I am completely satisfied (same sound), you can find the default valve senior combo.
But rcemment by visiting Milonga I saw they had available the combo then I cracked and I bought them 2 me I will need to 40watt or I could link the cabinet with my combo drive for an even rounder
report quality price does not mean anything anymore! how to sell an amp 20watts equipped with an HP Eminence Lady Luck, three lamps prampli two lamps of a power output tranfo tranfo HT 1 + the + box the coating, screws the knob, r resistors, ..... impossible to understand
Ht a transformer for 20/30 watts costing about 65.00 to the same as 3 hp output lamps 2 lamps prampli 12.00 22.00 average power, the shielding of lamps 5x 3.00 the HP 60 Eminence 15.00 approx knob the buttons etc. .... itout wood ....
For my part I have both versions and head combo for under 500 with a sound that I love again the choice would be made quickly.
I recommend this hardware!, Many will be very surprised zikoss the potential of this amp, going to test ...

This amp is a combo All tube (12AX7, 6V6) delivering a power of 20 watts, which is ample for small scenes, repeated, and the game at home provided you keep the volume very low. I was amazed at the power that this amp delivers.

As an effect, there is a reverb, which is against the only negative of the amp. It is safe to leave the condition between "1 and 3"



As we adjust the gain, treble, mid, bass, presence, volume and reverb.

I put a 8 / 10, two points off for the reverb fairly average

UTILIZATION

Use level, and although it's easy, we play on different knobs to get the sound you want. on the other hand, do not rely on the manual, which is very thin and English.



Amp very simple, a bit heavy to carry.

SOUNDS

This amp is best suited to the style Blues-Rock Hard-rock classic. One can easily play ballads with crystal clear sound, and switch to the AC / DC, Guns n Roses or Black Sabbath without problem.



on the other hand, to play metal, or extreme, consider buying a good pedal light, the sound of the amp remains in a vintage style and do not plan to play the system of a down or Sepultura without pedals ( it's not my style of play elsewhere).



I play it with a Gibson Flying V, and there is the total growing! The value for money is exceptional, it was a really good product for that price!

OVERALL OPINION

-Very good value for money

-Ideal for blues, rock and hard rock

Ideal for a first-step into the world of light amplification without breaking the bank

Reverb-a bit disappointing, but catch up by sounds generous

"I would do without this choice problem, at this price this amp is well worth more than some others a little more expensive
