25 watts? uhm. no

Actually, 25 watts of all tube is very loud, loder than 50 watts SS for sure, and if you found it 280, go for it, sounds like a great deal.

You're an idiot.

That amp looks pretty damn cool, wouldn't mind trying one of those. It seems a market is evolving for low price tube amps.

It's alright, but no reverb. And I used to have a pignose and I didn't like its sound.

Well, best thing you could do is look for soundclips, or ask for people who own them for advice, or reviews.

Johnson are pretty crap, in my experience. They make cheapo stuff with specs that look somewhat decent but fail to achieve anything useful. They also lie in their specs - like their guitars say they use original Floyd Roses but they really are licensed, I think people had issues with their guitars made of plywood/something else combo instead of mahogany or whatever it was supposed to be. Dodgy company, I'd steer away from them if I were you.

Can you return it if you don't like it? Without some insane restocking fee?

I would buy the Blues Jr., with confidence. Generally the cheapest item isn't the best deal.

+1. I would totally agree


I guess that means I get to say +2.

But I'd go for the blues jr. They are amazing amps.

Thanks for the advice, I just wasn't sure what their reputation was. OK, I promise I'll get the blues jr now . . . until I get more money or see a sweeter amp! (JK)

Actually I was quite surprised at the capability of this little amp. I picked one up...and I'm pretty happy with it. I own a guitar shop...so I'm able to A/B in comparison. I play a little bit of everything (classic rock, blues, and classic metal) and it sounds just as good as the little Peavy tube amp. I actually like it better than the Fender Jr...but I'm not a Fender fan in way shape or form. I've played 2 different hollow-bodies through my Boss ME-50 pedal...and I like what I hear. But I actually prefer to by-pass it and cook the tubes with the gain. (I have a few other true-bypass pedals I'm going to experiment with.)

The other thing is weight. At about 25 lbs...that' heaving compared to my guitar player's 2-12 Fender DeVille. I will admit I like a 12" extension cab plugged in as well to give a little more head-room before breaking up.

Just because it's tube doesn't mean its good, thats a common misconseption.

EDIT: and the biggest steal of the century is the Epiphone VJ.


The biggest steal of the century was when the Epi VJ was only $100 retail.

Shouldn't you have had a think about that one.

Dude, from what I read, that sounds like a great amp for the price, I would definitely research it because that sounds pretty damn good.
