      Comments about Jet City Amplification Custom 5 5W/2W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I bought this to use as a lower powered version of my JCA20HV (the vintage 20 watt). It is just voiced quite differently. It has a lot of gain early on in the sweep and sounds a bit more modern than vintage. Putting 5751's in both preamp stages helped smooth out the sweep but still not the vintage sound for me. Still not bad for the price but the JCA20HV just has a higher quality sound.

      Great low wattage tube amp with sweet tone. Love that I can get the tubes working without shaking the paint off the walls. Jet City does it again!

          Comments about Jet City Amplification Custom 5 5W/2W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I bought it to play through a 1x12 cab with an Eminence Maverick. My goal was to get good tone at low volume. The amp sounds great. The controls all work as they should. The voicing switch is a very nice feature and has a real influence on the tone. I ended up with a big-bottle 6L6 and a pair of 5751s in the amp (to tame it) and give it a nice full tone. I also liked a Gold Lion KT66 in the amp but that tube almost comes in contact with the top of the cabinet. The amp takes my pedals well with this tube combination. Using various ODs in front of the amp and a reverb pedal in the loop. No regrets buying this. I gave it 5 stars because I expected to swap tubes before I bought it.
