    I read extensive review of the amp before buying it, so I knew what I was getting in to. Basically, from the factory, you'll find this amp to be almost unusable. The tone there is good, but the wiring and set-up is so horrible that just about every person who has bought one has returned it because of the loud (and I mean LOUD) 60 cycle hum. However, for a cool smaller wattage tube amp, I felt that it was definitely worth the investment to buy it and see if I could get someone to fix it. Long story short, I had an incredibly competent amp tech perform the following:1. Bias the amp properly2. replace the pre-amp tubes3. Rewire the transformer4. Put in DC heaters.In the end it cost me about 150 dollars for the work. But, now I am very VERY pleased with the amp. I'd have no problem giving it a 10/10 but DO NOT BUY THIS AMP unless you are prepared to have it fixed. I just wish epiphone would do it properly from the factory.

    I love the idea of this amp. Small, powerful, tube-driven, warm, hip/retro-looks. But, as always, there is no free lunch. By cutting cost, Epiphone sacrifices quality and quality control. The amp is noisier than it should be, particularly in the reverb stage. From nosing around, this appears to be a genuine design flaw. Such a shame, because the core sound of the amp is beautiful, especially for the jazz I play. Warm, with beautiful articulation. Not for rockers, though. The fit and finish, as well as the noise (bad shielding and mismatched tubes, as near as I could tell from the two that I tried and the one I ordered and sent back) betrays a simple, brutal truth: If you go cheap, you get cheap. For about the same price, you are within striking distance of the Fender Blues Junior and, for slightly more, the far better Peavey 30-watt tube amp that is sensational! Or, if like me, you pack in the tube fantasy and go solid state, try the wonderful Carvin SX 50! Nice try, Eppy. Mix in some quality control and I'll give you another look! As it runs now, though, a "Gentleman's C-" overall.

    Epiphone Galaxie 25 Tube Combo

    By Denis Kavemeier

    from Franklin, Wisconsin

    It's a loud little amp in two ways (good and bad). Don't be fooled by its 25-watt rating. This baby is loud enough for most small club gigs and cuts through the mix without miking it. But it also has a loud tube hum that's annoying in quiet settings. But once the band starts playing in a crowded hall, you never notice it's shortcoming. I play an Ibanez AG-75 guitar set up for jazz. I get a great, clean George Benson sound through the amp. It has a warm rich sustain. And when I push the amp to play classic rock or blues, I get a creamy distortion that sounds great. I use a floor stand to position the amp at a 30 degree angle for my gigs.

    No proof readers!

    The Galaxie 25, regardless of the sale adds, is not a higher wattage version of the Galaxie 10...The Galaxie 10 has "overdrive" and the Galaxie 25 does not. I own both amps, they both have an appointed sound but do not mimick one another in any way except for the immediate appearance package. Buyer beware!

    this is a really good tube amp for the price. it sounds good clean(except for the hum, but it doesnt bother me to much), and it play very well with pedals. it sounds great overdrivin and its loud enought(with overdrive) to keep up with a drummer.

    Seemed like a value. First one had defective tubes. Replaced and second unit had a defective reverb. Spend more cash and but a Fender.

    Not too Shabby

    By Anonymous

    This isn't a bad little amp, for the price. Some people have noticed an annoying hum, but I've been fortunate, and can't hear one. For one thing, it is LOUD!!! Don't be fooled by the 25 watts. This little baby will scream. It doesn't seem to have much bass in it, from what I can hear. It's great for blues. It seems to respond ok to pedals too. All in all, if you're looking to invest little money in a tube amp, this is the way to go. All though, I don't understand why Epiphone makes a 10 watt with overdrive and no reverb, and a 25 watt with reverb and no overdrive. I'd get the 10 watt, but I don't like not having spring reverb.

    What you've heard is true

    By GlassCannon

    I've owned this amp for just under a year now and I'm very happy with it, but it does need a little work out of the box. Playing alongside my friend's Blues Jr., the Epi has a brighter sound and gets REALLY LOUD. It responds very well to pedals-- I don't even bother with the amp reverb. Not bad for the price.

    On a budget...but love tube amps?

    If you are going to buy this amp - buy an extra set of "pre" & "post" ( Ruby ) tubes...pull the amp outa the box & install the replacement tubes...Now you have an excellent low budget tube amp with "0" frills & 100% ready for "pedals" usability!

    I loved my Epiphone Amp when I got it. I couldn't put my les paul down til my hands were numb. Something about that thing, I know Marshalls and VOX are good, but this thing surprised me, it had such great sound, I just coulnd't beleive it.
