    Overall, this was my first really decent practice amp, and it's my pride and joy. I have recommended this to a friend and do not regret it one time.If you get any of the raven amps, just be ready to change out the speakers for and 8 ohm ANYTHING, because this amp has a 6 ohm speaker...or at least all mine did. I have no idea if they've changed that up at all. But other than that one, count 'em, ONE flaw, these amps are perfection. Get one ASAP. You won't regret it.
    These days, it's very hard to find a solid state amp that doesn't have a built in effects rack. This is one of the few exceptions. I'm not a very smart girl, so I enjoy the simplicity of a two-channel solid state like this little monster. It has a rhythm channel, which for all intensive purposes is basically a clean setting, and a lead channel, which is a somewhat lacking overdrive channel (but for the $100 I paid, I can't really complain too much). So, I use a Digitech RP90 mutieffects pedal with a crybaby wah," and that gives it that amazing death metal tone I wanted. It has a single 12"" speaker...and this is my only issue with it. This speaker", even with a noise gate, causes the harshest feedback at high levels. So, I replaced it with an Eminence Black Powder and that stopped the feedback. I can't believe no one else addressed this one problem, but oh well. The tuner is, well, the tuner sucks. It skips around the note and gets confused quite easily. But I tune by ear anyway, so it's not an issue.
    This thing is built like a tank! I know this because in early February of this year, my bassist and I were driving down the road, and we had an accident in which his suv flipped and landed in a ditch. His tube amp and my raven were thrown all over the back of this truck and my raven survived! It still works, and long story short, I'd buy another one if this one were lost or stolen. So yes, this amp is worth your hard earned money.
    I honestly think that musicians friend is screwing themselves by dropping the price on these amps. They're amazing pieces of equipment, that with a little work, get even better! I don't understand why people bash these amps because of the OD channel. In all honesty, these amps were intended for use by beginners. And with that being said, I'm playing shows all over the Southeast US and I love this amp. I also own the 60, the 100, and their UNGODLY LOUD half stack. I'm a member of the raven army, and anyone who doesn't like that knows where they can go.

    I bought one of these and played it for fun at home while our Peavy Bandit was in the shop. It was fun to have the built in tuner. The sound with the Stratocaster was passable. The sound with the Telecaster was horrid. The sound with the J-45 electric acoustic was worse than horrid. Probably the greatest features were the built in tuner, and the headphone jack. I think this is a great amp for a kid starting out with his/her first electric guitar. And, of course, that is the market this amp is pitched to. I give it a thumbs up for this application. When the Peavy Bandit came back from being serviced, this amp was traded. There wasn't room at our house for an amp with this kind of voice.

    Terrible sound, distortion and tuner are worthless. Boss D-1 does help some. Buy anything other than this amp - and watch out for the amp being sold under various names.

    Great Guitar Amplifier Highly Recommended

    By Linda Luper

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Raven RG20 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I purchased this amp a while back I am very impressed by its quality not only in build but sound. Its lead channel is great for blues and classic rock, its clean channel is very nice with tons of tone. Its controls are perfect for the beginning guitarist simple and affective, the knobs are very sensitive a slight turn can make a huge diffrence in your volume or tone. This amplifier gets loud it runs me out of the room turned up almost half way up, it also takes pedals very well without feedback or hissing. I love this amp and Im sure you would too. I highly recommend this amplifier, from begginers to experienced players.

    Best Bang for your buck

    By John La Valley

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Raven RG20 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    If you are looking for crystal clear clean channel, and a classic rock/great blues sound from the Gain/lead channel - this is the amp you want, trust me you won't find better in this price range. If you're looking for heavy screech distortion/metal sound - get a pedal to go with it...cuz you still won't find a better practice amp for the price. It all starts with the clean channel. What this amp lacks in 'features' like on other amps, modeling amps in particular - it more than makes up for in quality construction, and great tone. It's plenty loud enough to irritate your neighbors to boot - heh heh heh...oops. Also - for those who may not know...you need to break this amp in a bit before it opens up (and most others as well)...use it for a couple hours, then the tone will loosen up and the volume will also go up a bit. The way I do this, is simply plug a cd/mp3 player into the line in jack. Keep the volume down for awhile...it'll rise on it's own...then turn it up a bit. Wanna ruin your amp? Crank it up right after you get it, may as well punch holes in the speaker while your at it and get it over with. Dream on XD.
    Just what I wanted.
    Built like a tank.
    Excellent Construction, GREAT clean channel, very good blues/classic rock tone.

    Nice Low Watt Combo

    By VoN-.W3ph

    from Cleveland, OH

    Comments about Raven RG20 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I got this for use in an apartment (I don't want to annoy the neighbors). I play an Epiphone SG and a hand-built Telecaster thru a Digitech RP9 DigiTech XMS; DigiTech DGR; Danelectro CT- DOD GFX7 Rocktron Deep Blue Chorus; MXR M101. The amp sounds good for the price. It works well with amp modulation and effects pedals. I only use the ?Rhythm? channel (the Digitech DGR provides heavy distortion that sounds far better than the ?Lead? channel). As far as a small amp goes for practice and low volume jams, I would say look no further. I used to practice with low watt solid state Fender and Orange amps (both a little more expensive) and I enjoy the Raven RG20 a lot more (both those amps got sold and I don?t miss them). Save the extra cash and pick up this amp!

    My new amp

    By Chris-AfDbC

    from Las Cruces, NM

    Comments about Raven RG20 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    Got this a few months ago and I'm really enjoying it. It has a lot of power and the 12" speaker really lets you know about it. I can barely turn the volume up past the 3 without being blown away while playing in the house. The only draw back is the distortion channel seems to be a little weak even with the gain maxed out. It would probably work really well for jazz or soft rock. I pretty much only play metal and hard rock and I would suggest using a distortion pedal with on the clean channel if you really want to get the best crunch for metal. For the price though this thing is great, and the money you save can buy you a decent pedal for the heavy distortion. Despite the distortion channel being a little weak I would recommend this. Great amp.

    amazing for a starter

    Comments about Raven RG20 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    Well, this was my second amp after having a terrible 15 watt fender frontman... I've been playing for about a year now and have pretty much figured this amp out. The clean channel is pretty good and the overdrive sucks. I run it with a digitech rp250 and it's great. The pedal makes the amp sound great. Plan on buying a distortion pedal if you're going to purchase this amp. Unfortunately I was jamming with my friends and was playing next to the drums so I turned the volume to about 6 with alot of gain...... I'm pretty sure it peaked. I get some pretty nasty feedback now. Overall though definitely my best guitar purchase.
