    Very powerful. How? I SAID VERY POWERFUL.

    Epiphone Valve JuniorPublished on 11/13/13 at 13:41

    A good little old all-tube 5 watt house. Finally, in principle home. Entrance, on / off, volume, HP and HP outputs an 8 "Eminence Crown in (finally mine, because I believe that there are other types of HP).
    The quality is quite good, the Tolex is nice, handles are plastoc this is damage, the grillcloth is successful, the overall design is great. I would have preferred a small logo € rather than maousse "Epiphone" on the side of the amp but good.

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is 452145 pages, read all if we understand nothing.
    The setup is really very complicated, it is a big problem on this amp. Necessary to connect the guitar in it. Not easy. According to press On. According to wait a bit because it is seen as lamps need it heats. It's really hard in 5 minutes to play. After must adjust the volume and it's complicated to explain to everyone that yes, it is a 5 watts and yes, it is a portable home and yes, it is normal for a small room the volume is unbearable past quarter of the race knob before the amp starts to warm up the sound a bit.
    Joking aside this is a real problem the power of this amp in any case to use it is supposed to be: I play in stereo in my home studio or in very small rooms usually art galleries . No way to turn up the volume beyond the fourth race of the knob without everyone out ...
    The sound is good apart from that wealth is surprisingly serious for an amp of this size, it does not vibrate, it does not sound boxy at all the sound is full and very pleasant.

    SOUNDS

    Uh for my style of music this amp is frustrating. The sound, perfect. I, who have years of habit of Fender Champion 600 is another world: the sound of the trunk, scale, fat - I still love my 600, it will also end I'll play quadraphonic when I found a way to do it.
    But there are so powerful that I have to put very gently and I do not profit as much as I would like heat lamps.
    I play a Jaguar Japanese so not what is bigger, hefty as microphones, mostly clear sound with reverb / delay (s) and even for me this is what STRONG. How? The gentleman IL TE SAYS YOU PLAY TOO HIGH. Ah, good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I like this amp. I have two.
    It's cheap, it's beautiful, it sounds good, it is quite light and not too big.
    But really in really lacks a switch 0.5w/1w/5w as a Vox or a Bugera.

    Small 5 watt lamps.
    A volume knob, a jack, connection to the rear, CF features.
    HP eminence 8 inches.
    It can not be easier!

    UTILIZATION

    Yes config very simple, there's a button to adjust.

    SOUNDS

    Then the knob set to noon, it crunch nicely.
    The thing I have against it is the "boxy" sound stale.
    Apparently this amp is often triturated by his masters (HP change, lamps, the transformer, connection to a speaker etc), I personally have not tried it yet.
    To play at home, it's nickel, 5 watts is sufficient especially if z'êtes apartment.
    As a group, I came out of the mix! Not as much as 15Watts, but it still looked good!

    It is cheap and it is a very good quality / price ratio.
    The clean sound is slamming, not acid. (Unlike dairy).
    With a distortion contiguous, on the other hand, I am less convinced by the report.
    Other effects (chorus, flanger, delay) no worries.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had at least 3 years, I practice on at home, mostly in the clear.
    I read the reviews before buying (new) and have not tried other brands (vox et al.)
    Which is significant (or damaging it depends) is plug and play, plug it adjusts the volume and the music!
    Drawback is that the sound may seem too rich medium and little bass.
    Cheap (50 € in OCCAZ) Tie excessive (there to see the topics of the forum), a nice face, it is a good tool, I intend to keep it as it is endearing j ' already had a brand lamps (50watts Engl) and I needed a smaller amp and affordable, this junior Valve fulfills its mission. Good at all.

    Epiphone Valve Jr.

    Epiphone Valve JuniorPublished on 05/12/06 at 15:00
    I've been playing guitar for several years now, solely out of solid state combos -- Peavey Rage 158, Crate GX40C and a little unit I built (Second hobby: Electronics). I play only for myself, not in a band.

    I purchased the Valve Jr. from Musicians Friend on sale for $99.00 -- and shipping was free. I thought that it would be a nice way to get into true tube sound and a great price. Since I don't play in a band it was perfect for in home playing.

    I love the units look and feel -- it's got a classic styling and the covering is well put together.

    I love the units look and feel -- it's got a classic styling and the covering is well put together.

    Now to the best part - the sound. I was thinking that for $100 I was going to get something mediocre. Boy was I wrong. It's crystal clear until you crank it up, then you get a nice warm distortion reminicent of many old tube heads -- but of course not quite mimicking any. For bedroom/practice use I would say that this is a great unit. You could probably even do a small club with it and larger ones if they'll mike you. That isn't in my realm of experience though.

    My sole complaint about this unit is that it doesn't have a headphone out jack. It's got three jacks in the back for 3 different ohm loads but no phones jack on the front =(.

    This is built solidly -- It'll stand the test of time if you don't neglect it. There were no blemishes or scratches when I got it.

    All in all this is a terrific purchase for the price, especially if you don't already own a tube head. After I buy a bass amp I'll probably purchase a second Valve Jr. as a backup -- or the next "size" up.

    Limited but practical

    Epiphone Valve JuniorPublished on 03/11/12 at 12:01
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Here we have on hand a nice little amp to 5W lamps as is fashionable in recent years, there is a lamp and a preamp power, so in Class A amplification (which corresponds to an amplification mode, not quality, as often want us to believe manufacturers maintaining a soft focus on that, "class A" does not mean good amp, but like many amps are Class A mythical, you know the rest. ..).

    I do not know the type of lamps mounted above and HP, Epiphone has often changed it, probably for reasons that more industrial sound quality.

    A single setting: the volume is not too complicated.

    I do not know the type of lamps mounted above and HP, Epiphone has often changed it, probably for reasons that more industrial sound quality.

    A single setting: the volume is not too complicated.

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration: bah is a button.

    Manual: If there is one I have not read it.

    Easily get a good sound: yes and no, considering its configuration very simple, it operates immediately the extent of its possibilities, that they are rather limited (but was not purchased for four channels at the bottom) .

    SOUNDS

    This little amp is very convenient in-studio home studio, I bought it for this use.

    In my opinion it is not well suited to group play, except maybe a few specific configs (semi-acoustic, small groups without a drummer ...)

    Its main drawback: it lacks a bit of shine, that I correct in putting the pedals in front, and it supports poorly the low tuning (with HP 10 "it is not surprising).

    Now it does what I want: it has served me initially taken to complete the guitar on an album I recorded, I missed one I bought her for, and since I often used.

    By plugging in a few effects you can have a very decent sound, I put a tube screamer, fuzz, a simulation Boss Bassman, and playing on the volume to go nab the disto "natural" of the amp j 'almost always find the sound I want.

    I like to push a little in his entrenchment, with the low power of 5W you can easily hear the abuse inflicted on the power section and HP.

    His failure in this regard: the construction and improvement, and means for widgets which vibrate within, not practical to make a sound recording.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it in 2009, trying some models of the same range but this one won.

    This is a very nice to me quite a lot of galleys, but has some flaws: the HP is a fair bit and the construction is perfectible.

    I think the Stack Model with a HP 12 "is still a little better, because the HP (and it avoids probably have this stuff that vibrate), it lacks a bit of gloss to be used without effect, unless this is clearly research.

    Otherwise it is really super nice.

    attention: in my opinion, it is typed vintage instruments for the same type. if this makes sense ...
    with the Jazzmaster, the amp suits me perfectly. it's really a return to the origins of rock. the tone controls of the guitar enough. gives a clear-slightly warm crunch fairly quickly, until about halfway down the volume. saturation then becomes wild (3 / 4 of volume). attention: it's roots, not for the metal or other ... it's really a typical lamps, both rough and chaud.les 5 watts announced are extremely generous.
    with the gretsch, whose microphones have a relatively high output level, which is finally typed a little paul, the sound is heavier and bcp serious. I think the amp is less suitable, but I have not been able to push a large volume in this configuration. and it is a matter of taste. meet the acute seems thus necessary. Personally, I solved the pbm using my SansAmp whose settings are particularly effective! result, the amp sounds like a fender!
    and in any case, I use a reverb-electro-harmonix holy grail, which makes it beautifully here.
    9 points, but it will not suit everyone.
    there is a buzz, we hear, and can interfere with some. substantially disappears if you change the lamp, according to some. saturation changes while also less dirty visiblement.je have not tried yet. but for the price, do not hesitate!

    addition: after testing, changing lamps is to make absolutely!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since yesterday, and went with a friend who has a Carvin Vintage 16, for comparer.évidemment, this is not the same category. The valve has a side a little wild, especially in its simplicity! and it is in any case a real amp does not offer the same settings, or the same versatility. but it has a real personality, his real lamps. It also allows me to play at a relatively low volume clean sound, with real warmth, and a sound that is not comparable, I think, with the models.
    qd very careful to look for the saturation, we must turn up the volume, and 5 watts advertised seem very underrated ...
    for the price, it should absolutely not hesitate! but do not necessarily have the versatility ...

    Combo 5W-channel all-tube Class A
    1x + 1x EL84 12AX7

    Front: Guitar Input, Master Volume and switch ON / OFF
    On the back: IEC socket for power supply (230v) and 4 ohm speaker output (connected to the HP original) format Jack
    Weight: approx 10 kg

    No frills, therefore, the same summary. A deliciously retro look, small, fairly light, ideal for work at home.

    However, Stand by would have been welcome, as well as an effects loop, I do not know what it is this habit of always forgetting the little amp.

    Be careful, it is much more "powerful" as his only 5w to show it at first, it largely as a Laney LC15 gouache, it is certainly due to the fact that it is class A, but hey, at home need not exceed 9 hours in volume.
    Some will be cooled from the beginning by the lack of equalization ... but it is pointless!! It is not meant for group play, then for small or quick jam on the corner of the bar, nothing more

    SOUNDS

    How does it sound? Sounds good, a good well rounded and dynamic desire, sings every note is a joy, it may well be a small combo opened with a 8 "(of unknown origin), it provides all the frequencies, yeah we do not ask him out 20Hz at 150 dB, either.

    I see one who sneers at the bottom there, what cares that metalheads with an amp like this?
    Ben metallers he is doing very well with a beast distortion pedal to work at home and it's going very well, no need to Equal or whatever it is again, just open his ears.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Ben voila, I was looking for a small amp not powerful work at home (while the 50W lamp for my Screamer is too much, and yet I have no real neighborhood, but only for work is too many). I watched almost everything that was done, the Laney LC15 (yum, but a bit too powerful) to MadAmp kit, but frankly for € 150, why bother? It sounds, it's a real tube amp, and for a distortion, just a pedal. Limit one can easily connect a preamp input for adding CHANNELS if we find fault.
    In short, conquered

    Cool concept

    Epiphone Valve JuniorPublished on 09/27/11 at 08:40
    This is a 5 watt tube amp without any frills like tone or gain, just simply a power switch, volume knob, and a 1/4" standard guitar input. Any tone shaping can be done with effects equipment, but not in a loop, prior to the gain/volume stage.

    UTILIZATION

    This amp really opens up the louder you put it. There really aren't any choices, such as through using different settings, to get a good sound because there are no amplifier settings: simply on/off and whatever volume level you dial up. That being said, this amplifier sounds pretty good, especially in a bedroom or for a home studio environment.

That being said, this amplifier sounds pretty good, especially in a bedroom or for a home studio environment.

    SOUNDS

    There is a lot of versatility in that there isn't anything to fiddle with this amp - just whatever effects equipment that gets set up in front of it. So, this amplifier is capable of producing many different tones that all encompass the type of "tube warmth" that us guitar players seem to strive for. This could be the clean kind of tones, the ultra-clean tones used in New Wave (like the Cars) or lots of heavy metal distortion from a pedal for thrash and hardcore music. The higher the volume knob is set, the more the tube is driven, the warmer the tone. Fortunately, with only 5 watts, it doesn't take a whole lot of volume to start driving the tube.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a neat little practice amp, even if it is kind of expensive since it doesn't come with any type of tone shaping controls at all. Still, nice, clean tones are easily delivered from this amp, making it a great combo for someone who just "has to have" tube warmth in their bedroom rig. I ended up passing on this amp, but did go back and forth for a long time, agonizing over whether I'd pick one up or not. I've played a couple different ones for a couple different hours; I would suggest being able to play one the one that you intend to purchase, because they don't all sound the same.

This amp with its tiny 5 watts is able to follow a drummer! It really surprised me, I did not think to use it by repeating 'but it's possible. With bass, drums, another one quitar and I plugged into the Valve Junior volume with 2 hours is more than enough!
    Up to three quarters of the race of the volume knob is increased, then in the last quarter we increase the crunch, but we do not win much in volume. At the former I tell you! And so as the good old days it was also a good old blast especially if the pedals are aligned, because as we only have a sound, if you want the disto ... I mostly use my Big Muff pedal combined with various other distortion and therefore a lot of breath, I'll see what happens with a noise reducer.
    Before I used a VOX Cambridge 15 watts (12AX7 tube in preamp hybrid) that I love. I tried to play in stereo with 2 and it's very simpa, but at low volume by pushing the volume because I no longer heard the VOX, huhuhu!

    SOUNDS

    I Start a branch highway (or lapsteel HB) and no sound effects is very good, good bass and treble not screaming, good balance. The amp volume with its unique, complies with the different positions of my micro scratches. Beautiful clear sound. I have this amp for 2 months and I rediscovered my guitar! But that does not mean that this amp has no personality. You can play alone at home, but it's a tube amp and we want to ford up to the sound cruncher, and there the neighbors also benefit. When the volume goes up and if the amp is near the very start SPEED Feedback, especially with effects pedals, if their part to boost the signal, so do not push the settings. Anyway I love the feedback ... and push the settings. My style ... no style! Everything that goes through my head so a simple amp like this one that I use with different pedals suits me perfectly, especially life easier.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been 2 months so I use it, and really for the price, 145 € chez Thomann (it increased I know) nothing to say. Can be a tone knob would be welcome but hey. I also tried the Ibanez Valbee and despite its settings (volume, gain, 3-band EQ + presence and boost switch) it does not really convinced me, too cold, disto "Bzzzz" and especially the power of 5 announced watts is ridiculous compared to the epiphone. Have what's there to use it for group play for the money? I recommend it to everyone. 8 / 10 for value for money, and no more problems for the blast but prices blah blah blah ...

    This is an all-tube amp 5W (actually it is quite generous). Mine is equipped with a lamp in Electro-harmonix preamp.
    No effects, no EQ, no standby, no effects loop, just one button:
    The volume.
    It lacks only a taste in my effects loop.

    UTILIZATION

    Setup could not be more simple: you plug it plays.

    This is an all-tube amp 5W (actually it is quite generous). Mine is equipped with a lamp in Electro-harmonix preamp.
    No effects, no EQ, no standby, no effects loop, just one button:
    The volume.
    It lacks only a taste in my effects loop.

    UTILIZATION

    Setup could not be more simple: you plug it plays.
    This is a great amp amp roots inspired blues of the 50's.
    The sound is changed by pushing the volume, the more one grows more saturated ca.
    One might think that is a power 5W perfect work at home but it's not the case in an apartment the amp is too noisy to be used properly. In a house against this ideal.
    To ring really must go at least half of the race in volume. It has a clear sound up to 10h and then you end up with a good big distortion in the limit through the crunch.

    SOUNDS

    For blues and rock this amp is perfect. The problem is qu'evidement high volume we can not get clear sound.
    The sound is much better to my taste when the amplifier saturates when j'enclenche my tube screamer.
    It meets very well the sound of my Yamaha Pacifica.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had a transistor amp before this one and the quality difference is obvious.
    I can only recommend it because this amp proves that one can have quality equipment for cheap. At this price you can also afford a transistor amplifier with built-in effects but is it the same way?
    I've seen on an amp Thomann Harley Benton of taking over the electronic valve junior.
    It is the 98th, it might be a good alternative.
    With the experience I would do this choice.

    UTILIZATION

    Super simple setup, a volume knob, the more you turn it over saturates beyond half after scratching it sends wood

    SOUNDS

    It is best suited to the style blues, rock 70 years, this said with a pédlaier the buttock (GNX4) we get the sound will have.

    I use a telecaster squier modified and uen Variax, I personally prefer the Telecaster for it to sound that blends very well with.

    I love this amp to rehearse in my garage with 1 / 4 volume copy + behringer tube screamer, this pedal allows low volume to simulate a tube amp pushed, because 1 / 4 volume of the sound is clear.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For 1 year I use it, I played the terrace of a bar for the party in bayonne 2006, amp against a wall, the volume was sufficient to be heard from nearby tables

    I love the plug and play, possessing a peavey delta blues this amp is the ideal for small beef, go on holiday etc. .... toutefosi care in the apartment we rarely exceeding 1 / 4 of volume but because it is 5 watts of vitamins

    The Excellent value for money is, it can also be used in repeated or cooncert by transplanting with the sound
    I would do in this election .... ........ vote

    5 watts of lights all Chinese.
    It is when even 5 watts standards!
    This thing pump 35Watt your 220 volts single-phase 50 hertz and spits you 5 watts of happiness, hot and sweaty ... ouhla, I get carried away.

    Anyway: a volume knob, between a guitar and that's it!
    But I insist heavily: it is 5 watts monstrous.

    UTILIZATION

    - The configuration is it simple?
    Well, I have taken two days before to understand how it worked so there are knobs! No, but srieusement not need the manual or is the asylum!

    - Gets it easy to sound good?
    Good question ...

    Yes, this amp has the tendency of many fcheuse rstituer the fineness of your guitar.
    So it will be faulty if its ugly (assuming we are talking about a VJ in good condition). With double adcolle.

    I will pass on the manual ...

    SOUNDS

    - Is it your style of music?
    Yes, quite well. As against it will not ask for a potato 4 * 12 by a motorized head in ENGL 100 watts, it is not in the same CATEGORY. But with a good distortion and microphones gnreux well what you spit your mtal screaming in a reasonable volume. This is also the qualifier Sets the better this amp: REASONABLE.

    - With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    I Gnralement sty with a LTD EC-400 with which the VJ trs well understood. A good clean cruncher that can rev quickly, good aggressiveness with finesse and precision of the famous EMG CHARACTERISTICS assets.
    With a Parker P-38 the crunch is getting more complex. The volume is the same but the VJ saturates much more slowly. This is perfect for blues and rock: you can add pedals for distortion or overdrive will. Besides, I redcouvert my old Boss DS-1 so bad love. L is expressed while subtilis.

    The clean and warm lamps is typical of the loadings are so much more than a crmeuses transo ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am adept in two weeks.
    I thought about it for much longer in fact.
    Advisable to purchase a used one hundred euros finally convinced me.
    At this price as it is worth nine. Amateur small transos 200 euros follow my eyes, the VJ will rvolutionner your musical gear (Naheulbeuk inside).

    I love its simplicity its spartan ct of good quality gives it a charming enough spcial.
    It's easy to use ct that made me love it, coming from a big Flextone3 of Line6, vritable modlisations gas plant. The Line6 is not bad so far, a VJ will fill your needs l o modlisation can do nothing. And that price is a gift.

    See more advice. Amp extremely simple, we like it or not, that's a personal that I bought ... ^ ^ Sorry for the small size of HP but is felt the weight of the machine, lugging trs cool.

    UTILIZATION

    Ultra simple, plug and play.

    SOUNDS

    The clean sound is really good, I thought the sound without the reverb is not flat but it is lively and dynamic trs. But the highlight of the amp is the crunch sound. It's all good! When the amp is pushed back in with my telecaster branch is compltement crazy for the price, I halucin. With my Gibson P90 is also really good, sound good blues / rock, a rgal.

    And must admit that this thing is a vamp! It's fantastic, the sound is organic wish, any shade of restitution game is a real amp for lamps which would doubt they have not put anything just to look pretty when you push the amp more than half the volume, the nuances of play possible just with the right hand is amazing.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a week.
    In the same CATEGORY There's the new Fender Champion 600, and many other brands also offers a 5-watt lamps. I have not tried others (I live in a hole, it's not easy ...), I zon all over the net to cost a maximum and in the end I did not hsit take piphone.
    The report qualitprix sounds crazy, a sound is to be so cheap ... plutt but I think it's normal and that is by dry intubated against many companies it is ds amp lamps ... dbat other.
    I would do well this choice sr. I advise everyone, if indeed you sound very flat sr, to do so.
