I don't understand the unwarranted hate for Ravens in other forums. It's very likely that the people who hate them don't own them, however. (Perhaps they assume they must be bad since they're solid state.) It seems also that a few reviewers here received some unfortunate defectives. Note the price, though: It's close in price to $150--not $1,500. $150 is very hard to part with--it isn't much, though, in the context of quality musical instruments. Sure, the Raven won't match a Marshall stack, Mesa, Fender, or other legendary tube amp. I love both the clean and gain channels from the RG60. Very good choice in tones--very smooth. Obviously, not everyone's favorites, though. Had no problems with the tuner--matched both Korg/Quik-tune--nifty (not a replacement, though). Heavy-duty road-worthy cab with a strong metal mesh front--I found the amp not to seem that heavy--it's very well balanced for carrying. For those of you starting out in guitar on a budget--I suggest skipping the low-end Vyprs, Spyders, and the Raven RG20--stretch things a little and start with this, instead--you'll find yourself a big step ahead "on the curve of knowledge." Then, if those competitor modeling "practice" amps still interest you, purchase one, or better yet, larger upgraded--even well-regarded tube versions! You'll get more bang for your buck if you decide to sell this for the upgrade than for those popular beginner modeling amps. Otherwise, you'll likely purchase some good pedals for this that mimic or greatly surpass beginner modeling amps' functions. You'll then learn about what you want to hear in a tube amp. You see, the RG60 has 60W and a powerful 12" speaker (pretty much unheard of in this price range): So, it's more powerful than popular solid-state beginner "practice" amps--better (true RMS) amp power comes from better heavy-duty circuitry generating far less heat, noise, and unwanted distortion. The result, predictably, is better tone. Given similar quality, 12" speakers surpass 10" and lesser. (These statements generally indicate some truth in this context of comparing solid state models.) So, the RG60 has a very good speaker and power--given a reasonable environment, it's certainly more than loud enough to jam and gig. You may hook it up very easily to a speaker cab. I own a Vox Valvetronix 30 as well--it's "warmer" in tone--thanks to its tube preamp (the Vox is smaller, yet, pricier)--nonetheless, I like the RG60 really well, though--I consider the amps pretty much equivalent--yet in differing contexts. (The RG60 is better with pedals and is louder--it has a different tone, yet not one that's inferior--the Valvetronix is a modeling amp offering many tones. The Vox VT-30 is today's updated counterpart.) Apples and Oranges. Thanks, GC and MF!: I don't know who is behind the design and fabrication of your Raven house brand: Surprisingly, though, this model is pretty good--not to mention an extraordinary value!

I bought this amp a couple months ago, because i was looking for something to take to band practice. It was really inexpensive, and the reviews all said it was good, but it really isn't. I'll just say that with this amp, you get what you paid for. The clean channel is just okay, but if you turn it up past 5, it starts getting muddy and cutting out. Same with the distortion channel. If you try to use a distortion pedal on the clean channel, it will sound terrible. Especially if you turn it up past 5. The sound is so bad, that it really just makes a bunch of high pitched squealing noises. I really was expecting much more from this amp, but it really isn't very good. Also, the reverb doesn't work on mine. When i try to use it, i just get a loud ringing sound. I have to say that i was really disappointed with this amp. Don't get this amp, unless you aree going to use it to practice in your bedroom.

Great amp for such a low price!

By jake stone

from Findlay, Ohio

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I think the raven rg60 is a fantastic solid state amp for such a low price. The only down side is the distortion is quite thin. The clean channel in this amp is beautiful though. Get a great distortion pedal and this amp is must!

One of the best deals on this website.

By Jesse

from Elyria, OH

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

First of all, this amp can blow your ears off, I haven't even put the master up to 5 yet. It's almost too loud. Second, it has a Lead channel and a Rhythm channel, each with a separate EQ. Switching between the two is as easy as pressing a button. The Lead channel has great distortion and sensitive EQ, while the Rhythm channel has a very smooth sound and very squeaky cleans. Everything's right there on the front. A little kid could figure out how to work this thing, seriously. There's also reverb, which I think sounds a bit weird, but I don't use much of it so it's not a problem. In terms of looks, I'll admit it's not the most attractive amp. But that doesn't matter to me either. Durability is where it's at, and this amp is very durable AND lightweight(for a 60-watt). Overall, Best deal ever, way to go Raven.

RG 60

By SaucyJacker

from Fortworth

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

Wow i have to admit this amp is awesome it provides the perfect volume for any occasion and those people who say you need more power are stupid, at any gig that you more than 60 watts you will be playing through the PA system. The amp provides an excellent environment for any type of music. but keep in mind if you dont have any pedals or effects this amp isnt for you

Finally somebody got it right

By Dave

from AZ

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

If you are looking for an amp that doesn't break your bank but rocks your socks off without all the gimmicky fx, this is the perfect answer. The clean channel is perfect for some punchy blues riffs, and the lead channel gain goes from AC/DC to Metallica by changing the gain and mids. An OD pedal in front doesn't hurt for using the lead channel for hard rock rhythm/lead switching-the Digitech Bad Monkey works perfect for me. Helps to have a decent pickup, for example I use Duncans and Bare Knuckles. I have high standards in amplication, use an Axe-Fx for recording and playing out, so no noob opinions here. For straight-ahead rock/hard rock or blues, this works! And it's got an fx loop and speaker out to boot. Best SS amp on the market!

For those about to rock....

By Brandon

from Thomasvile Ga

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

this amp is a really strait forward amp. two channels clean and distorted and it has a reverb effect built in also a tuner which works pretty good and its handy.The clean channel is crisp and clear sound .... i also found that this amp has very good distortion very good for metal and palm muted material sounds very ...for lack of a better word POWERFULL! it has a good tone for grunge material as well...and its only 150$ has a nice funky tone as well if you put it on the clean with alot of reverb. But to take this amp to its next level you need to also invest in stompboxes effects ect just to beef up your tone

R U KIDDING ME!!!

By Dan Galbreath

from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I don't really know where to start. First, anyone wondering if this amp is loud, I can tell you; it's deafening. If you need to be louder then hand out earplugs to your audience. It will drown a drum set without breaking a sweat. From volume off to about 10 o'clock, it's loud. Once you break over noon it vibrates your organs in a small room. At 3 o'clock time and space begins to warp and at that time with fear of a 4th dimension invasion I turned it back down. Second: I bought a Boss ME-70 multi-effects to go with it. I'm taking it back as it simply is not needed for what I do. The gain on the dirty channel is completely sick! For more gain, plug in an overdrive stompbox, though I doubt anyone but only the hardest of hardcore players will need it. The clean channel is heaven. Nuff said on that. Third: The price? too good to be true right? WRONG!!! I feel like I ripped off Guitar Center on this buy, but I ain't gonna give it back. Buy it. Thrash on it. You'll have two months to decide if it's good enough. I had a Line 6 Spidervalve 212 and this amp make that one sound like cotton candy after it's out the wrapper for a couple days; dry and flavorless. The only two gripes I have is the reverb sounds like a plate reverb and not a creamy spring reverb, but at the price I'll get the natural room reverb of the venue to fill out what it lacks. Also it doesn't come with a foot switch. I'll be picking one up when I return the Boss Pedal and after awhile I'll pickup a delay and wah.

Good amp... to a point!

By 1990

from Spokane, WA

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

Overall this amp is pretty darn good. Clean tones are very nice and the lead channel has one of the best solid state distortions I have ever heard. Its just plain good rock tone. The amp also handles pedals very well. The two issues I have are the amp is quite noisy/hissy and the reverb is terrible. The amp gives a pronounced hiss when on. Not so loud that you can hear it when playing.. but just loud enough to be annoying. Plus after the amp has been on for about a minute.. I get the warbled hiss that jumps out of the speaker. Takes about 30 seconds and then it vanishes. Now the reverb...ugghhhhh!! Dont know what to call it, but it sounds more like a deflated slap echo then a reverb. The fender frontman amps have a killer spring reverb for solid state. If the reverb was better... I would be keeping this amp.. but I dont want to drop $100.00+ for a reverb pedal when the amp should be handling it. Found a used fender 212R that Im getting. For the price..its a good amp, but the frontman amps give a better all around package. (25R/212R) You have to pay a bit more.. but its worth it.

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I don't understand the unwarranted hate for Ravens in other forums. It's very likely that the people who hate them don't own them, however.
