Hi, Is the Epiphone Valve special an all-tube amp?

What mods should I do if I get the VS?

Thanks.

Yes it's class A tube amp, mods are up to you if you think it needs any.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Not a bad idea, more people tend to get the head/cab combo version of the jr for the 12" speaker. I wouldn't consider that a mod as much as an upgrade. But yea - they are good little amps that like pedals and a good speaker. The special has the 16 effects - haven't messed with them yet. Or put all of the cash towards a better amp that doesn't really need upgrading?

No but I have played a lot of the epi's. I looked it up to see that it is class A. I like the blues custom a lot for the price, and it was playable at lower volumes, had tone controls and reverb which is mostly what I use.

It's okay, but the effects aren't all that good. Not worth the extra money from a Valve Junior, IMO.


are you talking abou the combo or head?

AFAIK, there is only a Valve Special combo.

Also, please don't double post. Edit your posts, using the EDIT buttom on the right hand side of all your posts.


And it depends.
What exactly are you looking for in an amp?
Do you already own a speaker cabinet?
What kind of music do you play?
Why are you looking at a small tube amp?

Classic Rock

No, I dont own a cab

Tube amps are better sounding overall than solid states IMO
