For a small, inexpensive amp suitable for practice and at least coffee house size gigs, this amp cannot be beat. I gave it a 9 for features, and some may ask, why? Admittedly, the digital effects are not infinitely adjustable, but they are there, and they don't sound too bad either. At the right setting, you can get a pretty darn good "Voodoo Child" sound from the flanger. The chorus is not bad, and I doubt I will be using the delay very much. The reverb is not bad, just don't turn it up past about 3 or 4.The 2 channels are nice, and after I pick up my footswitch, I'll spill the beans on a couple sources for them. I'm getting mine first though, or they would probably sell out in 10 seconds! The clean channel is a thing of beauty, and the drive channel is good. With my 1985 strat (single coils) I need to turn the gain up a but - less than halfway, to get a good blues type overdrive. Crank the gain all the way up and things will get just a bit muddy with single coils. If you have humbuckers, this would probably be reduced. Then again, if you want to overdrive an amp to the max, what do you care about tone?The amp also has an effects loop with level adjust, a headphone jack, and an 8 ohm extension speaker output. I plan on adding a Rocktron 12 inch speaker cabinet to this amp, which will make the package even more versatile.For the sound, features, and sweet looks of this amp, I say "Bravo Epiphone!"

In a nut shell, beautiful exterior looks abound in this heavy amp. Its solid, easy to use. As others have stated, looks are deceiving as tonal wise, it is dead. I can only find a nice sound when I use my Fender Tele and Strat, Taylor T5, but never with a humbucker. So sad as Epiphone would have a killer amp if they spent the time to have listened to what they put out and made it worth while. Someone in RA/QA should be fired for allowing the design engineer to pass the amp. Sorry Epiphone/Gibson, as I love the Lucille and Sheraton II that I own, but not your amp. If you want good sound, pass on this amp please, but if you want a shell to change out the inerds, this is it.

A Fun Yet Solid Amp

By JimmydaFox

from Salisbury, MA

I use a Fender Blues DeLuxe, but it runs too loud in my house. I have a 15 watt Fender G-DEC but it runs too soft. This Epiphone Firefly - which I bought purely for looks - it suits me fine. I agree with the other guy who wrote that it's muddy with PAF Humbuckers. But I have a standard American Fender Strat and a Mexican Strat with Texas Specials and they sing big time on this amp. My Les Paul is better on the Fender equipment. The DSP effects are metsa-metsa but the overdrive is real nice and the optional reverb adds a nice depth. I recommend it 100% for a pretty to look at and yet a good workhorse amp.

WOW!

By Stratlover

from Denver, PA, USA

See all my reviews

I got this amp when they first came out. Fantastic clean sound. Distortion in just Ok. Add some delay and it gets better. I loved this amp, but ended up selling it to get a Triggerman 60 for more power, 12 inch speaker and a direct out. Part of me wishes I would have kept the Firefly. Such a great amp for the money. Highly recommned it.

good sounding amp

By liedtke

from sioux falls SD

I?m a lead electric guitarist in a band and I?ve been playing guitar plus a number of other stringed instruments for about 5-6 years now. Before I got the Epiphone Firefly 30DSP 30W I was using a 15W Marshall Amp. The firefly amp is obviously a big step up but this amp definitely has a lot more crunch to it when needed and it can be a lot more clean sounding. At first I didn't like it and thought it sounded muddy, but that?s probably because I?m using an Epiphone Les Paul with humbucker pickups. Because of this it took a while to adjust it right, but I finally got it to where I want it. I was also comparing a 30W Vox amp with the firefly but I didn't like the Vox because it had way to many useless options/effects, don't get me wrong, I think Vox amps are really good, but for about $60-$70 cheaper I would rather use my own pedals that I can better adjust. Overall I would recommend buying this amp if you want a simple amp with good sound.

Review

By Craigavonite

from N. Ireland

This amp is excellent, simple as that.The clean is amazing with both of my guitars, an Epiphone Les Paul Limited Edition, and a Westfield SG, the westfield is a cheap guitar and even it sounds godlike through this amp.The dirty channel is great for hard rock and Hendrix-esque blues, but wouldn't suit for metal, though anyone into their metal would be reading a Marshall amp review anyway. The overdrive is a little fuzzy, I wouldn't call it overdrive and I wouldn't call it distortion, its a lot liek a Big Muff. So if your into your 60's rock you'll love this channel.The looks are excellent, the pics don't do it justice, beautiful retro look. The DSP effects arn't adjustable (other than to select between delay, flanger, and chorus) but the presets for each are pretty damn good, I love the delay, the chorus is really good, the flanger I wasn't so impressed with, but I don't like flange effects anywayAll in all an excellent amp, and even though it's only 30w you'd think it was a 100w monster, put the volume at 12 o'clock and your ears will bleed

Great amp that you won't want to replace

By Mxblut

from Upstate NY

For this price, this amp is one of the best buys out there. I have had it for about 2 years now and the only complaint I have is the distortion channel absolutely sucks (just use a pedal). Other than that it has a very warm clean sound, great for blues and also great to run pedals through. The effects are also pretty cool, although I still need to get a footswitch for playing live. Speaking of, this amp is great for small gigs(I would mic it on a bigger gig of course). The flanger sounds great, along with the delay and chrous. I run a mexican strat through it that sounds great. Great amp!ps. I think it's discontinued so make your moves quick!

I bought this amp about 5 months ago and sold it within 2 months. It has a very cool vintage LOOK, and good built in effects, but the tone is VERY muddy.

Firefly

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

5 or 6 months ago I was in the market for a new amp. I surfed around the internet and the local music shops for a while, not really finding anything that "popped". Until one day I went to the local music shopand this amp stood out like a sore thumb. Big and red, it sparked my curiousity. I pluged into it with a dean v, and was pleasently surprised. The effects are very decent, exept for the reverb, which could be better. The clean channel is very melodic, flowey sound. The overdrive is not very metally, more like clapton or some early beatles type thing.I loved it. Brought it home and played it all the time.half a year later, i'm not so impressed.The overdrive has seamed to have gone "flat", with all the original pazzaz gone somehow. maybe it's just that i hear it everyday. It's not very versitile, don't even try to play metal or anything heavy for that matter.It's still got tones of vintage vibe, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a heavy tone. Will probably sell it soon.Overall, not bad, just not good either.

I waited almost 2 months for this amp, but it was well worth the wait! This amp rocks with my Epiphone Elitist Les Pauls, reissue Tube Screamer and Tremonti Power Wah!! It blows my Fender Champ 25 away. The only thing I didn't like was that I had to special order the footswitch, but it was only about $27 extra, so it was still a great deal! Get this while you can!!

By cyco_michael

I just picked up this amp a while back. I think it sounds great! And if you scoop the mids out you can even get a pretty damn nice metal sound out of it. All in all this amp just rocks!

Sweet Amp!!!

By Howlin' Sturgeon

from Carbondale, IL

See all my reviews

This is a sweet amp that is an absolute steal for the money. The clean tone on this amp is nice and smooth with some fat lows and singing mids and highs. I have put a Duncan twin tube pedal before to give it the crunch so I have not used the gain much. The effects are what they are but the reverb is nice. For the price you get a nice amp to take to small gigs and great for a practice amp!!

A classy offering

By SD-nI3Wl

from KY

This amp is a hell of a deal from Epiphone. It's worth about $130 solely on looks alone. It's got a very distinct look that really just makes you want to plug in and play it. The clean channel is quite adjustable, and I was able to dial in a very nice bright sound with it. However, I must say that I'm completely dissapointing with the overdrive channel. The basic tone of the gain is downright ugly to me. It's not a heavy distortion, and it's not a clear overdrive...it reminds me a lot of my Big Muff. Being that I like to dial in a clean sound with a hint of overdrive on it (to sharpen the attack of the notes) this overdrive just makes it sound ugly. No good there. An external overdrive pedal will make this a dream of a practice amp, though!

Firefly, oh how i miss thee.

By MANDERSO

from Pendleton, OR

This amp has been my soul and heart for almost a year now, before I melted a voltage regulator and capacitator straight off of the amplifying board. Needless to say, I miss the little guy's warm, throaty purr, (especially through a bigmuff), and the way the crystal clear DSP delay would ring throughout my home. I don't recommend hooking more than four instruments up to it at once, especially at full volume, unless you want it to protest in a squall of buzz and hum until it sits useless, gutted, (I managed to save the speaker), and lonesome against your wall.At least the cabinet looks nice.

Epiphone firefly

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Buyers beware! I purchased a NEW Epiphone firefly amp- or so I thought. The amp arrived damaged and after I inspected the box it was shipped in I found two invoices. The amp had been returned by another customer and they thought they would pawn their damaged goods off on me. When I contacted MF they said they would exchange the amp but I would have to wait two weeks to get a new one. They did not have to wait two weeks for their money, so why should customers have to wait for their items. The amp itself is well worth the money. Just inspect your amp carefully. You don't want to receive someone's blem. You want what you paid for. I am still waiting for mine.

Firefly 30 DSP

By Slippin' Mickey

from Undisclosed

This little amp has fullfilled my need for a practice amp with real tone.And we know, it's all about tone. I took it to practice, and opened it up. The clean channel is terrific, but the distortion channel is a little weak. I would recommend using a stompbox for the distortion. The DSP is fun and very ajustable. I look forward to trying it in the studio. Great little amp for the money.
