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've been playing through this amp wih my fender strat for a couple months now. The first thing I'll say is that pedals are a necessity for good sound with this amp. The clean is ok, but it starts to break up with only half volume. The distortion is more or less terrible. So I keep it on clean and it's sounds pretty decent with my rp-50. but basically it's not a great quality amp. right now you can a fender 12" single speaker amp for the same price. Please buy that instead!

AWESOME

By G Dogg

from Tracy

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

This is a great amp! I put it in my garage, cranked the volume, and wailed on that thing until every dog on my block started howling. The only problem is carrying it everywhere, but its a huge amp not meant to be carried for as long as i do. Great metal distortion and goes well with my B.C Rich Warlock. If you like metal and sound to burst your ear drums, this should do the trick.

This is a great amp!!!!

By GuitarMan485

from Simpsonville, SC

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

I love this amp! I have it with an Epiphone Les Paul Special II guitar, and the sound quality is great! This amplifier has a gain control, 2 channels: Acoustic and Electric, and it has a reverb delay switch. I also turned it all the way up and it nearly blew my ears out. The treble switch is the loudest switch on this amplifier. This amp may not be very large, but it packs a BIG punch. This amp is LOUD. It's ideal for concerts, but you may not be able to hear the singer because it's so loud! This amp is amazing, 'nuff said.

Crunchy goodness

By MetalMonster7267

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

The Raven RG 60 may not be a full stack, but it's got plenty of crunchy, aggressive, angry tone and power for the size and price! The 12" solid state speaker delivers a nice, versatile tone for any kind of metal or hard rock you want, and with separate equalizer knobs specific to the channel, you can switch from clean to distorted without missing a beat for flawless transitions! A perfect, cost-efficient purchase for beginners and experienced players alike!

SWEET AMP!!!!!!

By Blacksabbathfan

from Titusville, Florida

Comments about Raven RG60 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

This amp is great for most any tone, but is great at rock. For an example, on the overdrive channel (lead) i could get the tone of Metallica's "Enter Sandman", but on the clean channel (rythym), I could get Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama". The built in reverb is awesome, and the tuner is cool too. I would definetely reccommend this to a player of any style, performing of just learning.
