Overview

Part of Epiphone's Valve series of tube guitar amps, the Valve Junior Head is a straight-forward, single-ended Class A tube amp. This head version of the Epiphone Valve Junior tube guitar amp includes features not found in its combo cousin. It has DC filaments for both the preamp and power sections to reduce unwanted filament hum. It also has 4, 8, and 16 ohm speaker outputs so you can drive any kind of guitar speaker, from a single 8" box to a 4x12" cab. Simple to operate, it delivers fabulous tube tone from singing to searing with a simple twist of the volume knob. Like the combo version, the Epi Valve Junior Head delivers 5W power with one 12AX7 tube in the preamp and an EL84 in the power amp. Sports stylish vintage-style red and black vinyl covering with white piping and a cream front panel.

  • 5W power
  • Single-ended Class A tube circuit

I picked up one of these, with the matching extension Cab. I plugged in a cheap Mex-Strat at the store, and after playing 2 chords,I was ready to buy it. When I got home then it got even better, with my 74 Strat(not a reissued) and HS3 pickups. This is the best Tone=Money ratio ever. I've played Marshalls, Fenders, Mesas, Peaveys, you name it, but this is as close as it gets to that "tone in my head". There are a million mods to hot rod this little beast too, I'll be buying 1 or 2 more in a few days. I love the matching cab too. The more I play it the better the speaker sounds (it's starting to break up already) Do yourself a favor and get one, it wont even make a dent in your pocket.

An awesome little class a amplifier. Nothing really comes close to the sound and value for money of this amp. With the possible exception of switching out the tubes ( at a cost of $20 ) you've got a great quality boutique sleeper.

Fabulous Little Amp

By Himmi Jendrix

from Manlius, NY

Comments about Epiphone Valve Junior Head Tube Guitar Amplifier:

One knob. Two tubes. 5 Watts. Class 'A' Simply Fabulous little amp head. But you'll probably need an EQ. I do. Really nice well built amp. Buy one before Epiphone realizes what a winner they've created, and raise it's price. Even the cabinet alone is worth $100.00! So, Don't think, just BUY IT NOW!!! You'll be glad you did. even if you don't like it and 'flip it' you wont lose a cent. BTW, it needs speaker(s): It's just the head.

Rings like a bell

By mcbain

from San Diego

Comments about Epiphone Valve Junior Head Tube Guitar Amplifier:

Nice clean tone that rings forever! It doesnt get any more simple then this. One volume knob and thats it. Super clean tube tone sounds fantastic with all my guitars. Starts, SG, RG, This would be a great recording amp. At volumes lower then 10 o'clock, amp is really clean. Over 12 o'clock will get you classic breakup of the 60's. It's the best amp to come out in years.

A Wolf in Sheep's clothing

By bretman

from Iowa City

Comments about Epiphone Valve Junior Head Tube Guitar Amplifier:

I went to the new Guitar Center in Cedar Rapids 2 weeks back and saw they had a valve junior head. I plugged it into a peavey 4x12, cranked the volume all the way up, cranked the volume knob on the Les Paul I had and hit an "A" chord. HOLY COW!! It was bloody loud for 5 watts, and upon playing with the volume knob on the head, full of tasty tones all the way around, from sparkling clean to full-on old Marshall style crunch. I couldn't resist it, and took one home. I actually GIGGED with it last Friday night. It was just loud enough to keep up with the drums & bass, and it loves stomp boxes too! I used a Boss Super Overdrive for lead boosts, and it worked like a million bucks. It sounds particularly nice with a Strat played through it. Just pick one up before they're all gone...I'm gonna get another one and run stereo with my 2 2x12 Texas Heat loaded cabs.

RE: Epiphone Valve Junior Head

By James Paige

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Epiphone Valve Junior Head Tube Guitar Amplifier:

Let me just say, THIS THING ROCKS! Just got it today and I can't believe it. This is a must have. Of course it's not a Bassman or a Plexi or whatever, but it's THE BEST 100 bucks you'll ever spend on gear.

Epiphone Valve JR Head

By Steve Peel

from Maple Glen PA

Comments about Epiphone Valve Junior Head Tube Guitar Amplifier:

This amp is almost perfect!!! I came pretty close to unlocking that tone in my head a few days a go when I bought this amp, it sounds amazing with my Washburn hollow body and knock-off Les Paul. The high output chrunch is perfect for classic rock song. I hope you find this review helpful.

wake up tone mongers

By all 4 JC

from Oceanside, Ca

Comments about Epiphone Valve Junior Head Tube Guitar Amplifier:

Hello! 99 bucks for all tube tone. I bought this yesterday, it's pretty rad. All you need to do is upgrade the tubes for a cleaner bluesier tone. It has just enough power to crank all the way up and still be able to breathe. This is definately the best value for the money of any amp out there. I pluged it into some of my 4X12 cabs,Mesa, Marshall, Hi Watt, and an Ibanez thermion( which by the way is totally insane) it needs more juice for them and into my 1X12 black shadow mesa cab, that didn't do it for me. The best sound came from a Vox AD 212 and a Marshall 1936 lead 2X12 cab. So if you are running a 2X12 cab this is the amp for you. Keep it low for clean and past 75% for some grumbly grunge. It's light, portable, trick leather 2 tone covering and best of all, simple. :D

The Tiny Tube Titan!

By CS_Squiggy

from Hollywood, CA

Comments about Epiphone Valve Junior Head Tube Guitar Amplifier:

Epiphone has created a monster! Measuring 5 watts through its single EL34 power tube, the valve junior is a dream come true. Wether you be a beginner who is strapped for cash, or a electronic fiend who loves to get down and dirty customizing, this amp is perfect for you. There is so much tonal range streched out of a single Sovtek 12ax7. I bought two for myself, one to modify and trick out(my guitar dept and I have gotten it almost sounding plexi with a small amount of diode clipping and an input boost), and the other to take advantage of both its amazing clean tones and the warranty. I could not ask for anything more from this amp, especially at such a low price. This is a must add to any collection.
