JOYO JTA-05 "Sweet Baby" Tube Guitar Amplifier - 5 Watt
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.

Big tone Small volume14 September 2017This amp has all the tone of the big valve amps i have giged with for years but with a fraction of the volume. It still has enough volume to do smaller café or bar gigs but sounds great at more house friendly volumes. It really does sound Fenderish.
Jta-0518 July 2017Great little amp, sounds good and inexpensive too.
Great Little AmpBy: Anonymous on 21 June 2017Bought this with the May Madness deal. Didn't really need another small tube amp, but so glad I got it. This is a fantastic sounding little amp and blew a couple of my other small tube amps out of the water. If all Joyo amps are like this, they should do fantastically well. Has me wandering about the Bantamp series now. Oh and fast service and delivery too. Top Marks, 5 stars all round
Great little amp - robust.By: Anonymous on 20 December 2016Higlhy rate this unit. Has the fender champesque type of sound with some good clean headroom and very useful grit. This is playing through passive pickups and a humbucker. Very sturdy amp from the controls to the case. I'd have no hesitation mikeing this up at small - medium gigs. I really dig this amp. Joyo products have really stepped up in the quality stakes and this is no different. Let's hope they continue to remain competitive and not overpowered by greed like some other brands that unsurprisingly haven't lasted. ange
Great value Fender Champ clone31 October 2016If 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.
