Valve Series Junior:
Boutique amplifiers just became the domain of every guitar
player out there. Take a listen and your jaw will drop. This
little, low-watt powerhouse rivals $800.00 snob boxes no
problem. The Valve
Junior is vintage tone and crunch in an impressively
affordable package. Perfect for recording, live, mic’d use and
for practice when space is limited but sacrificing tone isn’t
Newtique: The Valve Junior uses true vintage design
philosophies to achieve incredible tone, warmth and
responsiveness. Add that to Epiphone’s ongoing mission to
deliver the best value in fine instruments and you’ve got an
unbeatable combination. And don’t let the 5 watts fool you.
The Valve Junior is LOUD. Here’s why:
Class A: One knob
delivers Class A output through a single-ended circuit that
responds to your play the way a compact amp is supposed to.
Class A amplification delivers constant power from the tube,
creating more responsiveness and volume. Keep it at about 3
and you’ll get punchy, clear tone that makes the strings of
your guitar feel like they know what you’re going to play
before you even hit them. The response is quick and lively.
Turn it up to 10 and you get a classic crunch that’s gusty
without saturating the harmonics.
Single Ended: Single
ended amplifiers sound “full”, providing rich, luscious
overall tonal coloration with enough clarity to bring out the
nuances of your guitar and playing. Part of what we call
“volume” is how much of the tonal spectrum is making it
through to the ear. Fuller delivery of the harmonics being
produced deliver more meaningful volume. At lower wattages,
they’re coveted for a natural break up when turned to higher
volumes, resulting in a creamy distortion that makes modern
gain sound sterile and flat.
Construction: High quality
metalwork, detachable power cable, rugged, musical speaker and
a lot of attention to detail make the Valve Junior an
uncompromised and serious piece of gear. A 5 year warranty
backs up our commitment.
