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 8" Celestion Eight 15 G8C-15 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.

A little beauty!By: Anonymous on 1 April 2021All valve amp with an 8# Celestion speaker means that it sounds smooth and mellow. Turn up the volume and it breaks up nicely. Whack a distortion pedal in line and it CRANKS! You could even use it in a band rehearsal in a pinch if the drummer isn't really going for it. Bottom end is a bit lacking as you would expect from an 8" and the speaker needs to be aimed at your ears to get the highs. $250 is a bargain! All in all, a fantastic practice amp!
Great amp. Great business.By: Paul on 25 March 2021This little amp is fantastic. The build quality and sound is really impressive, especially considering the price. Pedals sound superb through it - I'm hearing subtle sounds in my pedals I never heard through my other amps. I was worried that without an effects loop it might be muddy but it isn't all. This amp exceeded by expectations. Customer service by Swamp as always was exemplary. Thanks to all involved.
It’s HOTBy: Pete on 8 December 2020Great studio amp. Loudest 5watts on the planet. Sounds great with an extension cab too. Had to purchase a second one for my sons studio too!!
Excellent little ampBy: Anonymous on 1 November 2020This is my third one.. My friends keep. Begging to buy them from me.. I play acoustic with a little electric... Acoustically it's beautifully clean with a hint of valve tremolo that some amps give and which I like tremendously... Electric guitars go from clean to raunchy and everything inbetween very very well indeed.. Buy one they are the best small valve amps out there.. And I have tried most of them..
good quality cheap tube ampBy: Anonymous on 3 November 2019I don't know how closely the JTA-05 follows the original Fender Champ but it is a well built unit and behaves exactly as you would hope. Surprising how loud a 5 Watt amp can get!
