    I picked this guy up on an impulse after Christmas. I was in need of a clean amp that would be useful for recording and also something loud enough for gigging every now and then. Saw this 100W 212 and it was exactly what I was hunting for. I don't know why it's just got 3 stars so far, you don't get a Mesa or Bogner for this price, sorry folks! But for what this guy is worth, it sure is worth it! The clean channel is VERY sweet, I find the distortion to be very useable IF you have the right setup. With a Fender strat it probably sounds like poop, but with a Les Paul custom with active EMG 81/85's it is awesome! it produces a very natural distortion compared to the "fuzzyness" commonly associated with transistor distortion. I have preferred the amps distortion over my Boss GT-6 distortion simply for the sake of simplicity, I might compare a little more in depth later, but the amp itself gets the job done for hard rock and metal. Biggest downside, the reverb. It's alright on the clean channel, but sucks the tone dry on the distortion channel, but most people use outboard reverb anyways. As far as available footswitches, I'v constantly heard that the Boss double footswitch is good because it has polarity switches, so go there for one. I did have some issues with feedback at a gig recently, but I didn't even have a noise gate and I know that would have helped greatly. But people commonly fail to associate the fact that when you have feedback, you are trying to make your amp loud enough to fill a space too big for it. If you expect to use this in a room of 200+ people and have it fill the space, you'll need to have it mic'd, period. But any combo amp has that tendancy none the less. As far as noise on the gain channel, none. Not kidding it isnt there! I get buzz in my house simply because the room i prectice in has bad wiring (i can turn my guitar at a 90 degree angle to my computer and the buzz vanishes) But anytime i've taken it out to gig with the buzz is almost non-existant. If you are expecting to have your mind blown by a 212 combo that will render your Mesa to collecting dust in the closet, no budjet amp will achieve that. (And if you have a Mesa you shuoldnt be looking to buy anything like these besides use as a practice amp anyways). But if you want a nice amp for smaller gigs and practices, or are looking for something to satisfy you until you can take a step to a nicer tube amp, this thing will hold you over for a while! I know it will for me.

    Excellent amp. I run a Fender Strat thru a couple of digitech effects and into this thing--and man is it sweet. It's not a marshall, but It's a good amp. A lot better than similar Berhinger and Crate models that I've used. Good clean sound (try cutting the treble a little)and nice reverb. It has an external speaker jack and a footswitch jack--which are nice, but it doesn't have a line out or headphone jack, and the footswitch is not included (hence the 4.5 on features. The overdrive sounds like garbage (get a stompbox like everyone else in the free world). A great amp at a great price. I hope they start making a head and cabinet so I can get them.

    Better Than I Expected.

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    The funny thing about this amp, is that i ordered something completely different and this is what i got in the mail... I'm really glad i did. I ordered an Amp to get me through my 12 month Afghanistan deployment. This baby never let me down. Its been thrown into conexes and 3 occasions and was on the truck with me when we got hit with an IED. This thing kept on rockin.This amp is LOUD. The speakers NEED NEED NEED to be worn in first before any review should be done. (Like with any other product involving speakers)The Drive channel lacks (not just gain, the overall sound) But that is nothing a TS-9, Rocktron Zombie, or, everybodies favorite, Boss MT-2 can take care of!The Clean channel is awesome. Crisp, Clean, no disappointing noise coming from nowhere. Hook one of them pedals I listed above to this puppy and you got your self a solid piece of guitar equipment.I really like the fact you can run this thing through a cab. 2x12 would be adequate. I like this amp so much i bought myself a Boss selector A/AB selector so i can run this as my clean channel.For my drive channel i use a Peavey XXL Head sittin on a Peavey 6505 cab. No Dist Pedals (Who ever says Peavey's distortion sucks, can eat a dick) Just a Boss CS-3, Boss NS-2, and an MXR 10 band EQ.... So i'm well taken care of on my Drive end.This is a very underrated amp and should be looked at with high regard. I'm sure the RG100 Head is just as good if not better.

    Great for Effects Users

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I bought this amp about two years ago because i needed an amp to simply increase my volume, not mess with my tone. This it did beautifuly, and the clean channel kept most of the signal intact. However, if you want a high quality distortion sound from this amp alone, you will be disappointed

    simple, no frills, no headphone jack-still awesome

    By t-doge

    from new orleans, LA

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    saw the amp on sale, liked the specs and reviews. ordered it online sunday night and it was in new orleans by thursday morning. had it for a couple weeks now and am VERY pleased. with 100watts and 2 twelves, it pushes harder than i expected for $199..for any level player, as a practice amp, backup amp, or small gig amp you cannot go wrong. 1 drawback, no headphone out.. not a huge deal, but makes it harder for quiet practice while the wife is asleep. no frills, simple powerhorse.

    deffinetally a good buy

    By Jesstheripper666

    from Pittsburgh, PA

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I bough this amp early summer 2010 and totally love it! its external speaker jack makes it perfect for shows in any venue, considering once you get to the big venues they usually mic you anyway. its distortion is pretty nice once you figure out what you're doing, but you should deffinetaly run your own effects through the clean channel, which is FENOMINAL by the way! best sounding clean channel i've ever used, and i started out using marshals. only thing is, i've already blown one up by cranking it to its max in my basement. and my new one is about 3 months old and sounds like its almost ready to blow next, and i've been careful with it. but it comes with a warrenty, so thats cool.

    Fantastic Amp

    By Stryc

    from Philadelphia, PA

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    There are 3 amps that have ever absolutely blown me away with their sound. This is one of them.I was initially attracted to it for cost and size reasons, trying to replace a Cube 30x that was OK, but that wasn't giving me the sound I wanted. Part of what I was looking for was simplicity: I didn't want a ton of overwhelming options I would never use, I just wanted an amp that did what I wanted, when I wanted, without forcing me to keep messing with the controls. As for sound, the clean channel on this amp is fantastic (I play a Strat through it), going from soft and subdued to bright and sparkly without much effort, with a whole range of great sounds in between. One of the great things about the amp is that the controls are extremely effective; it's cake to dial in the sound I want. As some of the other reviewers have mentioned, the distortion channel will be pretty weak to the metal heads out there, and gives you more of an overdrive than gritty distortion. I was looking for a bluesy overdrive when I bought the amp though, so that?s pretty much perfect for me (I run through a big muff when I need the extra punch). I have yet to find a tone from this amp I don't like. I gave it a 4 for quality because there are a few weak points in the construction: it?s pretty solid, but I wouldn?t recommend jumping up and down on top of it.Overall, I can't recommend it highly enough. It's cheap, it's loud, and it sounds absolutely fantastic.

    Great Amp!

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I just bought this and love it! I have it 5 for all but overall because I think its great for effects due to its simplicity, its well built and feels nice and sturdy plus it sounds great. I give it a 4.5 overall just because the stock speakers are a little flat sounding, nothing bad about them, they just lack character. I plan to swap them out with some Celestion Vintage 30's.

    Good for price

    By Corey Youngblood

    from Albuquerque, NM

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I bought this amp because i was on a budget and needed a stage quality amp, soon after i got it it started cutting out and was sounding staticy. Then that stopped and was fine for a while. Then just recently it started doing that agian and was beyond repair. The amp sounded great for my style of music but couldnt be turned up past a half our it would start sounding bad. the overall sound was good and was loud, i liked the amp for the time it actually worked but i upgraded to a stack.

    Great for rehearsals

    By Harliament

    from Sacramento,CA

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    My Marshall TSL 100 died and I really needed an amp so my friend gives me the RAVEN RG100 2x12 combo. I was really impressed with the dry gain channel. I tune to drop A (A-E-A-D-Gb-B)and was surprised at how clear the baritone range is. Lots of thump without drowning out the upper register. I rehearse with this combo through a Marshall JCM900 1960 A cab and it is loud enough to match up with my bass player's Ampeg SVT4Pro head through 2 4X10 cabs. I did realize that anything above 3 O'clock on the the gain channel volume is a bit muddy. Rolling off the gain helps a little, but it just couldn't cut through at a show. I recommend this amp for reheasals and home practice because it sounds quite clear at lower volumes.

    Good if wanting Simple

    By Against the Monolith, gtar

    from Walnut Creek, CA

    Comments about Raven RG100 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    This amp is a very good choice for a guitarist who needs to be heard, but does not want to spend too much money. i bought this amp about a year ago so that i could be heard over drums. it did that and more. i am playing an Ibanez rg5 ex1 through a Digitech multi-effects pedal. the amp itself with no effects, so it is great for running a pedal through. the distortion offers variety as far as tone for style. the clean channel is awesome to cover pretty much whatever you want! Worth more than you'll spend!
