Great value Fender Champ clone

31 October 2016
If you haven't figured it out, this is a very affordable clone of the well known Fender Champ (5F1) amp. All tubes, it has the simplest design with only one volume control. It sounds great but you have to accept its limitation. At 5W it is still too loud for bedroom playing if you want a natural breakup sound. On stage it could be the opposite, you'll never get it to be loud and clean but then again most people who bought tube amp are probably not looking to play clean.

A great little tube amplifier with low gain and high gain inputs. This amp is LOUD, I haven't turned the volume up past 4 yet and that was too loud for bedroom playing. It sounds great by itself, but also sounds great with pedals - running some overdrive really gets a great sound out of the amp. Whilst it's a combo amp, it's easy to plug in an external cab - just unplug the inbuilt speaker and plug in your own cab in the correct output. That said, the speaker it comes with sounds great, and gets a very loud and clear sound. The interface is as simple as it gets - two inputs (for high or low gain) and a volume knob. If you want high gain at lower volumes, an overdrive or tubescreamer is recommended. Best value tube amp anywhere near this price.

JOYO JTA-05 Sweet Baby - All Tube Compact Guitar Amplifier - 5 Watts

Simple Bedroom Blaster
Without doubt the best value 'all tube' amplifier on the market, the JOYO JTA- 05A is a perfect for the tube amp enthusiast that doest have the space, the money, or the tolerant neighbours to own the larger old tube amps. NO EQ, no gain, just an on/off switch and a volume knob means the "Sweet Baby" is so simple to set up, that all you have to do is plug in, turn it on and play!

Three Tube Stage Design
Remarkably, this little 5W Class A has three a three tube stage design, that takes the place of all the EQ and other dials and complex circuitry usually found on guitar amps. Instead, this amp, loaded with a single Eminence EGTR-S108 speaker, relies on the 12AX7 at the pre-amp stage, a 6V6GT tube in the power section and a 5AR4 in the power supply to produce the old school amp tones.

The Volume Knob
Just like the old amplifiers of the 50's and 60's, the JOYO Sweet Baby simply has one Volume Knob as its only source of control. Keeping the volume low will produce nice, smooth clean tones, whilst turning the volume knob up, will increase the "dirtiness", by overdriving the tubes in the amp, producing that wonderful old amp distortion similar to those you would hear in the 60's.
