Epiphone Epi valve junior review

Epiphone Valve Junior Combo - the super cool Epi 5 watt tube amp

If you want a small, cool tube amp for next to nothing, check out the Epiphone Valve Junior Combo. It's a 5 watt, single-ended Class A amp. It sounds really good and has a low price tag. Don't let that fool you - it's a great, small, but powerful tube amp. The Epi Valve JR is simple to operate - just a volume knob - that's it! Even so, it can go from a nice clean tone to a great overdriven blues tone, depending on how much you turn that one volume knob.

It also has 4, 8, and 16 ohm speaker outputs so you can drive any kind of extension speaker, from a single 8" speaker to a 4 x 12" cab. This is an awesome little amp, that gives you great tube tone to a bargain price!

Like the combo version, the Epi Valve Junior Amplifier Head delivers 5W power with one 12AX7 tube in the preamp and an EL84 in the power amp.
