A versatile head with exceptional tone and great quality at a fantastic price.

The Epiphone Valve Junior Hot Rod Head was created due in part to the worldwide cry for more features on the wildly popular Valve Junior head. With added standby, master volume, gain and reverb, this 5-watt tube-driven monster will deliver the goods. In addition, Epiphone added a dummy load reverb / preamp output on the rear panel. This turns the tube amp head into a very versatile 5-watt stand alone reverb tank or enables the preamp to drive the front end of another amp.

The fact that this NOT only is an amazing sounding amp head...but its a STAND ALONE REVERB TANK is incredible. You check any online or in store retailer...the cheapest reverb tank you can find is 499.99, which isn't even a guitar head. This really does sound amazing, I use this as a head by itself, or plug it direct into my multitrack HD system and use it for the spring reverb. This is a great deal

good tube tone for cheap

I've had the Epiphone Hot Rod Valve Jr for about two months. The reverb is nothing too inspiring, I either leave it off or turn it pretty low. The options for different speaker outputs and the reverb output are good ideas. I changed the stock EL84 to a JJ and it sounds great. It pushes a 4x10 cab easily, lots of volume from 5 watts. I'm happy with it.

If your willing to sacrifice volume over tone, this amp will deliver more than you can imagine. Sturdy Epiphone construction...Vintage 5 watt Class A routing...4,8, and 16 ohm outputs will power even the bulkiest of cabinets. Side by side, most amplifiers costing 10 times this price, would have a hard time competing with the Epiphone Valve Jr.
Not alot of features on this model but...
High quality Epiphone construction.
This truly is an unbeatable little amp! First off, it certainly wont break the bank. Secondly the boutique tone this box delivers is something that must be experienced first hand. If you are reaching for a sound that is vintage, yet uncompromising, then look NO further. Bells and Tight, class A tube your talkin'.

Try before you buy.

I have 2 of the old heads, a V2 and a V3 circuit and a combo. I just bought this new model and I am disappointed. Epiphone change the sound from the original, there's less bass, it sounds thin. The reverb is terrible. I have Peavey Windor Studio with the same exact reverb tank and it sounds decent, this one isn't usable as a stand alone reverb unit. The only other person I know of who has this feels the same way. Although it does makes a great preamp gain stage into another head. You don't need to have a speaker cab plugged in when using it as a preamp, it has a built in speaker load it switches to when the preamp jack is engaged.

    • With A Marshall Quad Box-

    Have always used combo amps. Went for a jam and this bloke had this amp for sale- . You know I got a lotta combo amps- I'm sick of cartin them around. Tried the Epiphone with a Marshall quad box- its better than the Fender Twin, the Vox AC155xx and is cleaner/ dirtier than the JCM800 combo. Am gunna buy another one and sell al my combos- just keep a Orange Tiny Terror for back up- but will replace that wirth another Epiphone. The Hot Rod Junior - simply my dream
