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

I bought this amp in March 2010 to play small shows with my band for a while. It put out great sound for the price, beating out my other guitarists amp like it was getting paid. But after two shows I noticed the sound getting extremely muffled. I ignored it, insisting that I was hearing things. Then a few weeks later while practicing it would randomly become clear and then get muffled again, and this kept getting worse. About a month or so after this started, the amp began to cut out completely whenever it pleased. No, this was not the cord, I'm positive. Now the amp is completely useless and will be returning it.
After being a drummer for 20+ years, I decided to start playing more guitar. I bought a Mashburn Guitar/Amp combo and loved the guitar but hated the TINY amp. I got this and have been completely wowed since I got it. It has a great clean channel and the lead channel is awesome as well. The gain control gives the perfect distortion sound for those rockin riffs. Great amplifier and VERY loud.
I bought one of these less than a year ago because it had a good price for a 100 watt amp. The more I played through it, the less I liked it. If you turn it up more than half way the sound goes all bad and it makes this horrible "whomp whomp" sound. The built in distortion on the lead channel is weak as water. If you have some good effect pedals, you can get a pretty decent sound out of it though. The clean channel is very clear. I rarely ever play guitar clean, so that wasn't much use to me. The EQ knobs on it are kind of a joke. They don't really help at all. I actually leave them turned all the way down and just EQ my effect pedals until it sounds somewhat decent. The built in tuner is pretty cool, seems to work ok. The reverb is all right as well. It's fairly well constructed, not too heavy. I like the metal grate over the speakers. It's not too bad if you're just using it to practice and you like playing clean guitar. I ended up buying a Peavey Valveking 100 watt tube amp and the difference is phenomenal. I have been trying to sell my Raven amp ever since I got the Peavey.
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.
this amp is sick, the mids are great and the highs are insane, its great for any kinda metal, and has a really good stingy clean sound, i recommend this to everyone! and its also a great jamming amp for a band member, goes great with any dean guitars, and emgs are a must!
I bought this amp because I wanted more power. And wow, does it ever deliver. This thing is so loud, it can be heard a block away. The tone is okay. It doesn't have much bass to it, so you'll have to make the EQ just right. I would just avoid using the gain altogether because it has a dreadful hissing noise when it's on. I just use a distortion pedal and that works great. Also, don't use the tuner. Mine was telling me everything was a half step higher than it needed to be, but after using many other tuners, I found it to be incorrect. Other than those few items that are wrong with it, this is a great amp!
ah, so so amp, not the most amazing thing ever, I'd get it for a backup amp at most. Not completely raving about it, sounded good, maybe some pedals for distortion? That and i have to say, pretty rugged lookin' amp.
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%
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.
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.
