Raven is a new brand. When a new brand can make it in the world in only it's first year, you gotta give em credit. I like simplicity. You can tell by my rig. Gibson Les Paul Studio into Dunlop Original Crybaby Wah pedal into this Raven RG100. Then I use a Vox 2 button foot switch for switching the channels and turning the reverb on and off. It can go from blues to metal. It is very good. The built-in tuner is great. Some people say this amp is good. Look at the type of music they play. Death metal, Black metal, Vegan metal (It is a genre believe it or not). This amp can get you a classic Led Zeppelin tone and it can get you a SRV tone and a Metallica tone. You just need to tweak the EQ to your liking and your set. THIS IS LOUD!!!!! It can play an arena I bet. Granted you will be mic'd. No matter what you will be mic'd so why carry around 12 cabs and 12 heads when you can get a 2 by 12 combo which sounds incredible. It is an off-brand but I guarantee you it will be a house hold name in a matter of years. It is not tube but sounds amazing. This works well with your effect pedals. There are no effects but who cares. All you need is a wah and you are set. The clean channel is angelic and you can get a great sound with the reverb. The distortion on here is great but if you are into death metal buy a stomp box. No matter what amp you choose, if you play death metal, you will always need more gain. When you get this amp, you'll forget about the rest. Marshall who? Mesa who? Raven is the way to go.

This amp is sick for my style of music. I love the distortion, and it goes pretty loud. It can pretty much go as loud as you need for any small gigs or anything like that, and it's also good for just practicing. Great amp, especially for the price

Awesome

By Sam

from Dallas

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

This amp has an awesome sound, but no built-in effects. I at first wondered how an amp of this size could be that cheap but, that's why no build-in effects. All in all it's a good amp for anybody that needs to upgrade to a larger amp from a starter.

highly under-estimated

By Cameron

from Fort Collins, CO

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

Picked up this deal just after Christmas, and I gotta say it's great for the money. I gave it 5 stars for that reason, it's great for the MONEY. For how inexpensive it is you can't expect to get Mesa tones or anything, but it gets the job done. It fills in where I need it most, a larger amp for gigging and a very clean sound for recording. With active EMG's the distortion isn't bad at all, but no way should you use it with a Strat. My setup that I have gotten to sound very good right now is a BOSS GT-6 plugged into an ART Tube MP Studio, then plugged into the effects return on the amp. The effects return is what sold me on this because it makes it much more flexible than anything in its price range.

Not bad

By Rob the Impaler

from Memphis TN

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

A great amp for the money. It has good-sounding reverb--which is nice. Gets good and loud and has a good sound. Sounds much better a high volumes than similar Crate models I've played. It skimps a little on features: no line out, no headphone jack, only one input... but it does have an external speaker jack. An excellent first "big" amp, especially if you're on a really tight budget, like me. I've had it for like three months and no problems yet... I guess time will tell if this one has the durability factor.

Raven with celestions

By moondust

from Chandler, Arizona

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I wrote a review on the Raven RG100 in June and said I was going to upgrade it with a pair of English made Celestion Vintage 30 speakers. Well those English made Celestion Vintage 30's I put in were almost new with only one hour of time on them. I have put close to 30 more hours on them getting them to settle in and I can say that the tone and punch with the Celestions in has made all the difference in the world. The amp still screams, but with a new voice, and the sustain is better with much more presence than with the original Raven speakers. I don't even have to use my distortion or fuzz boxes much any more unless I want more out of the amp. I'll put my Celestion loaded Raven RG100 up against any 100 watt combo amp out there now.

Too bad.....

By Cody

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I was so excited to try this amp out, but it failed me. The gain channel didn't have enough output and had absolutely no low end. The Clean channel was decent and you could probally get by with a pedal. I guess you get what you pay for.

freakin sweet raven!

By Ike

from littlerock,CA

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

ive had this amp for a few months now and man,it was well worth the money it doesn't have any effects in it but it can get pretty good distortion if you crank up the gain.Its also pretty loud ive played a few small shows with it and i actually had to turn it down because my friends amps weren't loud enough to keep up with it if your worried about it not being loud enough dont be it can get hella loud it has a good clean channel to it has a little to much bass and not enough tone but thats all right i recommend this amp to any hardcore/metal/thrash/blues/rock player

Great Value No Frills Amp

By Moondust

from Chandler, Arizona

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I bought this amp 6 months ago after my 30 year old Marshall 15 watt Micro Stack finally died. I play a Les Paul Smartwood and I wanted an amp with no frills and a lot more punch (more watts). I got this with the Raven RG100 and at a killer price to boot. The clean channel on this amp is great and my Les Paul sings sweet and clear on this channel. The reverb is adequate and the only effect this amp has. The distortion channel is the one I play through 90% of the time, due to the style of music I play, and I am really disappointed with the Ravens speakers when using gain. My little Marshall had 10 inch Celestions that had much more punch and depth, so I guess you could say I'm spoiled in that aspect. I will be replacing the Raven speakers with English made Celestion Vintage 30's to get the real distortion and crunch I am looking for. Other than that this amp is a great value, it looks good, and it is LOUD!!! I can't wait to crank it after putting in the Celestions. If Raven would upgrade this amp with better speakers, it would really be an awesome amp. I tried using the built in guitar tuner, but it didn't work very well, so I'll continue to use my trusty analog tuner. I own 4 stomp boxes, distortion, fuzz, wah, and flanger and this amp loves effects boxes. In summary, if you want a good, simple, no frills amp that can definitely scream, you really should try this amp out. Put in a pair of good quality speakers and you have an amp that will play with any combo amp out there, and probably blow most of them away.

Sick

By Marc

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

This amp is sick for my style of music. I love the distortion, and it goes pretty loud. It can pretty much go as loud as you need for any small gigs or anything like that, and it's also good for just practicing. Great amp, especially for the price

Great

By Dan McGann

from Elyria, OH

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

This amp is amazing, I got it because I needed something a bit bigger for some of the bands I was working with, and man does it put out some power, it has two channels named "Rhythm" and "Lead" so obviously one is clean, the other is distorted, now that's where the downfall of this amp came, the distortion is subpar, it can be tweeked to sound decent, but it isn't as powerful as I'd like, so an outside pedal (The pod XTLive works great through it)and also it doesn't have a headphone jack, but my pod does so it's all good, but besides that it is a great amp, and an absolute steal at such a low price!I recommend it 100%

Great Amp

By Rob

from Riverside County

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I got this amp just yesterday when in search for a new one... of course... when i got home and plugged it in, i turned it up to about 5 and it nearly blew my windows up! This can easily play over drummers. The clean channel works great as well. the lead channel is also great. the gain gives me a trebbley, almost vintage sound...? Anyway. i do recommend this amp to anyone out there looking for a great amp with a great price...

Pretty Nice

By Jesse Hufstetler

from Greentown, Ohio

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

If you have an external multi-effects pedal, this amp is awesome. The only problem i've noticed with it is that to hear any treble you have to be right in front of it. If you end up buying it prop it up with a block or put it on a chair or something while you're practicing on it. I couldn't hear any treble when it was sitting on the floor next to me so i turned it way up, and then when it was mic'd the treble was way too loud. If you're practicing with a band put it far away and turn it up loud so the speakers are pointing at the whole band. Don't let that scare you though. I'm still happy I bought this amp, mostly because of how clear the sound is. If you want a simple amp that's cheap and loud, this is what you want to buy.

Decent for a budget

By Matt Tuchfarber

from Cincinnati, Ohio

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I bought this amp as my second amp (the other one was a 10 watt First Act). When I first got this amp I loved it because it was so loud for the price. After time, I began to want a lot more out of the sound. It just doesn't have the warmth or feel I wanted. After about 10 months I was playing an acoustic song with volume on less than half volume with reverb on and the speakers just blew out in the middle of it. The guy told me when he sold it to me that if anything went wrong in 3 years I could take it back for a new one. So we'll see if this holds true. Also this amp sucks to lug around. Its 62 lbs and carrying up a flight of stairs for band practice every week sucks. Next amp will be a peavey.

Waste of money

By Jake

from Chesapeake, VA

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I am a pretty experienced guitar player and was very disappointed with this buy. I needed a large enough amp for band practice and something that was going to be a decent price. I found this amp at my guitar center and thought it was a great deal...i was wrong. After about three weeks of continuous playing at around a level of 6-7, the amp began cutting out and I couldn't play. In my opinion, do not buy this amp and instead purchase a fender frontman 212r. I went ahead and picked one of these up for a similar price and it has lasted for over a year now.

So Far So Good

By Ace

from North Florida

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

Have had the amp for 3 weeks now as I am in rehearsals for a last minute May 2nd outdoor festival show. I have not settled on my "tube rig" for the Fall and just needed something quick and cheap with enough power to make the rehearsals in a large room. The rest of the musicians are very impressed with the sound of the amp and my other guitarist is running a Strat through an Engl all tube combo (I am running a Strat as well and he assumed at first that the Raven was a tube amp when he walked into the rehearsals last week). Bottom line?.....Clean channel is exellent, either by itself or running effects, and the EQ response is outstanding (you can take down the treble nicely if too thin sounding with digital effects because the bass and mids are booming if need be). The lead channel is not as good; it actually ok with a very low gain setting but sucks IMHO with the gain set above relative 2 or 3; I'm using the lead channel as my boost channel for leads over an already nice base sound through the clean channel effects loop and not for the lead tone. A good cheap rehearsal amp if you are on a budget and it may even cut it in a live setting if you play with mostly clean tones (really crystal clear). Elevation off the floor is a need for many combo amps and this may be no exception; I have it on an amp stand and no problems with trebles or clarity.

Most Excellent

By Nosneros

from Savage, MN

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

Absolutely a worthwhile investment. For its price, it cannot be beat. Other similarly priced amps can't get the same beastly volume you get from this. Since I've bought this, I haven't had any problems or issues...well, there is some static when the volume is low, but it rarely is for me!

Not that great..

By Patrick

from Albuquerque, New Mexico

Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

Don't get me wrong this is a good amp, has a good sound when you turn the mid all the way down, sounds like Bring Me The Horizon. Very loud. But when i first got this amp it was doing fine for like a few weeks, then all of a sudden it started cutting out. Took it back, got the same one, and after a couple of months, its doing the same thing. Never mishandled it in anyway. I have a show today and im SOL.. Hopefully it doesnt cut out. Raven is only good for a couple of months. I would rather prefer Line 6 over Raven.
