ok so i'm wondering if the epiphone valve jr amp head would be good with a 400 watt quad cab with jensen speakers. I really dont care for effects and stuff. i'll get most of my sound from pedals. But for basic clean is it good. (also does it have distortion). and how loud will it get?

you do NOT need a 400w cab for an epiphone valve junior
Gear:
2000 Paul Reed Smith CE-24
ESP EC-1000 w/ Seymour Duncans
Ceriatone 18 Watt TMB Plexi 1x12
Peavey 5150 2x12 Combo

It's a single-channel amp, so it doesn't really have "clean" and "distortion"
It will be clean up to a certain volume, then when you crank it past that volume you will get overdrive. To get a hard-rock type sound, you'll have to put an overdrive in front of that.
To get a metal sound you'll pretty much need a distortion pedal.
It'll get too loud for the bedroom at volume 10, but seeing as you're using a 412 cab, I'm not sure what you're gonna be doing with it....

If you want to play cleans over a drummer and other bandmates, I'd say go bigger than 5W.
#6
If you want loud cleans look into some high wattage solid state amps, or even a JC120.

the 400w quad cab you speak of is a Behringer, no? That's a bad idea anyway. Them things ain't the greatest.
But no. It has no clean headroom. Look at a Valve Standard or as Sam suggested, a JC-120.

Don't judge me.

And even then it isn't going to be easily heard. Check it, find a used head of some respectable brand, whether it be a peavey 6505+ 120 watt, a used marshall jcm 800, or hell even an hd147 line 6 head. They'll all be good and loud.

A 400 watt cab will not make a 5 or 15 watt head "louder"...it's not even worth getting one.
