I bought the EPI firefly 30W the size up from the valve special and it says "E-valve Tube Tone Circuitry" can someone explain what that means? The price was great and I think it has a great look, pleasently supprised by it's warmth!

The 5w valve special did not say anything about tubes or not from what I read?

Thanks

well according to musician's friend your amp is definitely a 'solid state'. i'm guessing the 'tube circuitry' means there is an amp modeling board in your amp's circuitry to emulate a "tube" sound.

 

my little amp sounds ok for what it is, but nowhere near as good as the fender hot rod deville.

Thanks. Yeah same here, it is a great little amp for around the house, I don't play professionally and really not as often as I did or would like to, but it does have that feel that the tone gets warmer the longer you play, for the price a great buy and i love the red leather and vintage look what I call Retro chic

They're a different line - there's the Firefly/Triggerman line of solid state amps, and the Valve (Jr/Special/Standard) line of tube amps.

 

I agree the Firely amps look cooler with the red tolex

I have a Valve Junior head. Definitely a tube amp. I run it through a Peavey 112E (the extension cabinet that was made to go with the Peavey Classic 30 combo amp) which I got for a steal at a pawn shop. Sounds great, and even works fairly well as a vocal amp for band practices. Best $100 piece of gear currently available in the guitar industry.

Fender Pro Juniors smite Epiphone amplifiers into the abyss. Just to let you know.

 

 

That's probably true, but you're talking about a $300 amp compared to $100 (or $120, i think, for the combo amp). $300 is still cheap, though, and the Pro Jr. is 15 watts compared to Epiphone's 5 watts. Pro Jrs. are great little amps. I almost bought one, but I found a great deal on a Traynor Custom Valve 20 (15 watts, two channels w/ footswitch & reverb compared to the Pro Jr which has volume and tone knobs and that's it). I guess I needed a bit more flexibility for my main amp.

 

I'll try to post some pics of my gear someday soon.

My "new" 1996 Fender Mustang. I just got it back from the tech yesterday. I bought it on craigslist for $250. It was abused, needed some fret work, one switch was smashed and hanging loose in the body cavity. The previous owner had spilled something on and into the guitar and it was real smelly. I disassembled it, cleaned it up and took it in for a level and crown. Now with a fresh set up it's ready to go. Plays real nice too. I love the tone, this guitar has serious mojo. I played it for a few hours last night, recorded some solos over some blues backing tracks and it just sounded so beautiful. Great soulful blues axe.

Excellent. Way to bring it back from all that neglect/abuse.

Here's my little modest collection. Maybe when I'm not a college student I can start you know...actually getting nicer equipment/more equipment...but for now this is what I've got.

Fender DSP 100, I would really love to get a tube amp...but right now just can't afford it, I've had this for a long time and it definitely works fine.

I sold it to buy another Strat, that I later sold. I have a core of gear I'll keep and various pieces that I swap or sell for other gear. I like to experiment with different stuff. I've been selling guitars to buy recording gear and instruments. Two weeks ago I sold a Strat to buy a guitar synth (Roland GR-20) and last week I sold my VOX AD50VT, Yamaha piano and some misc stuff to buy a drum set (Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz).

 

The goal is to have enough gear to have a fully functional home studio. All I need is a decent mixer, some drum mics, acoustic amp and a keyboard\synth and I'll be done.

How's that Roland G-20? I've never used one or anything like it. Can you get strings type sounds out of it? I have a cheap keyboard that does some cool stuff, but my piano playing is horrible. It would be awesome if I could use the guitar for such sounds.
