I actually picked up this amp for my girlfriend who is making the switch from acoustic to electric guitar as a practice-around-the-house amp. I had never heard of them before but it looked solid and was much larger then most in this price range. It has a surprisingly big tone, good lead channel, and the built in tuner is a big plus for someone starting out or who just doesn't want to switch to their tuner. I would like to see the effects controls done a little better in the future, but the fact that they're even on the amp is a big plus. Good job!

this amp has a TON of bass but if you turn it down it just sounds bad. its an ok(ish) beginners amp but if you know anything about playing guitar and how its supposed to sound, save your money and get something better like a line 6 or a marshall. i can get somewhat of a good sound out of it when i plug it up to my boss ds-1 distortion pedal but it still doesnt sound great. oh and the tuner sux just get a chromatic turner for like 20 bucks.

wow this lil amp kicks..

By b.b. lee... guitarist.

from ga.

I was just looking for a lil practice amp..what I found was a lil powerhouse full of killer tone. It takes a bit to dial in your sound, but if you look it is there. It has awesome bottom end for a small amp. Good enough tone I may take it into the studio as well as another part of an already wicked arsenal. This is a great amp for any level player.. I (and this is all that matters) will give nothing but raves to anyone asking about this tool. Peace b.b. lee

Awesome Amp

By Johnny

from Lexington, Ky

This Amp Rocks! I wanted to upgrade from my little 15 watt amp with a tinny 8 inch speaker. I was surprised at the tone and volume of this amp. Good for practice, jamming or maybe even a small gig. Does not have much in the way of effects but thats ok I use a Digitech RP150 with it and it sounds great. I use it with a Epiphone Les Paul which seems to be made for this amp. Could not be hhappier, buy this amp!

High Quality Amp

By Black Sabbath45

from Cincinnati, Ohio

I have had this amp for almost a year now, and I am very impressed with the sound and the sturdiness in which it is built is really awesome. After trying other amps in this price range(Fender Frontman,Spider III), i chose this amp because it gave me a "real" tone. by real i mean it was very versatile, while in the other amps as you turned up the volume or tone it would jump and then not change much. in this amp it increased steadily. the tone it provded was really good, when i played the other amps the tone just sounded,well,fake. This amp can get pretty loud too. i highly reccomend this amp.

By Renshi1973

Nice amp

By zero the hero

from miami, fl

I got this as a practice amp. Since I live in military barracks, I didn't want anything too loud and didn't want to spend much. I didn't spend much and this amp is louder than I expected. Its a plus for the price I paid. The built in tuner come in very handy. The built in effects are kind of useless but if you have your own effect processors, this amp will suit you just fine and for $99, it's a great deal. Turn up the volume and ignore the pounding at the door he he...

I love it

By Paco Meza

from Chicago, IL

This is a great amp, sounds great, two different channels for different styles of music, two effects, I'm surprised it has any for the price, goes really loud, headphone output and a very convenient built in tuner, and amps that are not nearly as good as this cost more, I love this amp.

Rg 20

By Dan

from Monclova Ohio

Great little amp, I was surprised when I got it there is really some volume behind that thing. I've had it for almost a year now and its still going strong. I use it to play in church and 1/4 volume is almost too much. My only problem with it is that there is always a very slight hum, but nothing too big I'm just kinda picky. Great deal though for any beginner or musician on a budget.

Groundshaking Sound

By JonIsDead

from Lake Mary, Fl

This is an absolutely marvelous amp- A rock solid construction that packs a loud, vibrant punch. The distortion sounds absolutely brilliant on this amp, and I've actually begun using it at shows, over my cherished Line 6 amp. Not only does it have a massive, powerful tone, but it sounds absolutely wicked when you crank up the distortion to the top, drop the mids out, and pump up the treble and bass all the way up! Classic Death Metal tone worthy of a Morbid Angel album! That being said, it also can make a guitar weep with a little bit of delay and the distortion cranked down, you'll have people crying in the audience at how beautiful it sounds. For a measly 99 bucks, this thing is a STEAL! BUY! THIS! AMP!

INCREDIBLE VALUE!!!!

By Greg Peterson

from Centennial, Colorado

Bought this amp with a 10% off coupon from Guitar Center and can't believe what I got for about $90. This amp is as good or better than most costing several hundred dollars more. I'm very impressed with the clean channel combined with my Boss pedal board as I can achieve just about any sound possible. The EQ is very responsive and the amp gets pretty loud. My only complaint is the Reverb/Delay is very poor and in my opinion unusable. Otherwise great amp and value...Buy it!

Good Starter Amp

By Ben Patterson

from Nineveh,In

Pretty good amp. The clean is pretty good, and so is the lead channel. I've had this amp for a while and i prefer it better than my Peavy 130 Special. The overdrive could use more power. I play alot of Van Halen and it barely dosen't have enough gain to cut it. It is overall a great starter amp though.

Good Practice Amp

By Rob

from Maryland

This amp is excellent for practicing at home. As a practice amp I would definitely recommend it especially if you're not out to spend a lot of money. but it has a great clean tone and solid distortion. The built in tuner provides a simple way of tuning your guitar if you don't own a tuner or are just too lazy to use it.

Amazing tone from Raven amps

By Raymundo2245

from troy, MI

when i first looked at this amp, i thought it couldnt be better than the other amps in this price range, but i was wrong. i first got a line 6 but the tone just didnt do it for me. i was recommended to try a vyper peavey but it was too much like a line 6. but i tried this one and man.... its amazing. its not only bigger in every way, but the sound is amazing. clean thick sounds to heavy rock and metal. this amp does it all. effects? who needs the built in ones. thats what boss pedals are for and it has a built in tuner. something anyone wishes for if you need a tuner fast. this is a must buy. for any small gig, or just for home as a practice amp. if can be small when it wants to and become a monster if you crank it up. this is a must buy for any intermediate or beginners. buy this amp. it will be the last practice amp you buy!!

Great Value Amp

By daneyboy

from Seattle, Wa

Great amp for a beginning or intermediate player - especially for the value. Really stands above anything in its price range in terms of features, speaker size and sound. Not a beast on distortion but then again adequate for the price. The on board tuner works well and in clean mode it can not be beat in its class. Well built - classic looks - and the large speager makes a hell of a difference in depth and clarity. Best thing out there in its price range.

Great Value and tone

By Wes Thompson

from Shelbyville, Kentucky

When I recently moved into a new apartment I was looking for an amp with a good tone but wasnt oversided like my other Marshall and Kustom amps. I done a little researh on the company and seen they were a fairly new company and thought why not give them a chance. Its a 12 inch speaker with good tone and a very loud 20 watt amp. I was very suprised with the amount of sound it can put out. I played several other 15 watt amps when i started out playing and this amp is far louder and more powerful. For only a hundred bucks it is a great buy.

RG20

By Jordan

from Bedford TX

Great starter amp. I got this amp for christmas and have been playing it just about every chance i get. Kind of big and heavy for a 20 but it's still a great amp. I might move up to something more powerfull though soon. Good for begginners and intermediates, as well as a good practice amp for any level of player.

Good, but only with the right guitar.

By ShredHeadMetallicaFan

from Simpsonville, SC

Okay. Overall, this is a pretty decent amp. The clean is good, and the distortion is alright. But only with the right guitar. For example, the RG20's distortion sounds like blues and does not have the right amount of distortion on guitars like Epiphones. But, on guitars such as the Ibanezes, it sounds pretty good, especially for classic rock solos and chords. The clean sound is great on almost all guitars. So it's okay.

Good For Practice or a Beginner!

By Jeffrey Osgood

from Woonsocket, R.I.

I just recieved mine today from UPS after ordering it online a week ago from Guitar Center's website and to be honest,it's pretty good for a $99.00 amp. The tuner works quite well although a mute button would've been nice but for the price you really can't complain. The clean channel on this is quite good once you get it set up to your liking. I did notice that the treble and mids on this are pretty bright so I didn't really need to have them up high. The reverb and Delay though, were a little hard to distinguish from one another at first. For a 20 watt combo this lil' sucker is loud and no doubt could be used for a small club gig. My only gripe and this is a minor one, is the distortion channel. To me, it sounds very weak and could use a little bit of beefing up. To this amp's credit though, it is very pedal friendly, which is a huge plus. I hooked up a Danelectro Fab Distortion Pedal to it and I couldn't believe how great it sounded trough this amp. I am going to be taking a look at the RG-100 combo just to see if there's any difference with the distortion and if there is, then I know what my next purchase will be.
