They are different amps but I doubt the tone will be very different
Let me rephrase that. It looks similar and it's 100$ less. anyone else think it'll SOUND the same..?
Well...the VC508 has a smaller speaker, and it might be a cheaper one, so that might have some impact on the tone. Look up some reviews on Harmony Central or something to get a better idea.
but it, amazing amp for the price.
Ok. And finally, for about the same price, would you say this is BETTER than the Epiphone valve junior...?
They're both pretty much the same(the palomino v8 and crate v58/v5), and it depends what sound you want but I would rather get the crate than an EVJ.
