Artist TweedToneV 5 Watt Valve Guitar Amp
Artist TweedToneV 5 Watt Valve Guitar Amplifier
The Artist TweedtoneV is the latest model for our Tweedtone line of amplifiers. These amplifiers are known to provide valve driven vintage tones at an affordable price. This five watt valve amp is the perfect solution to low volume valve amplification and also to achieve that natural break up/overdrive valve amps are known for.
It features a master volume and a presence knob giving you a boost to your high mids and treble making them more pronounced. This will give your tone that livelier and raspier sound and also allow you to cut through into the mix with clarity. It also has a toggle switch for when using low output pickups (Boost) and when using high output pickups (Normal). The beauty of the TweedtoneV is in its simplicity and ergonomic design.
The amp has a 5 watt RMS output through a high-performance Celestion G8C-15 Speaker.

Great tone in a small packageBy: Andrew George on 13 July 2021Completely agree with the other positive reviews about this amp. It sounds sweet, provides a range of tone from the simple controls (sometimes less really is more) and is a fantastic practice amp all round. Excellent value for money and a quality product. Service and delivery from Artist was great as always.
By: Artist GuitarsThanks Andrew for all your support. cheers.
Tweedtone V amp is a little ripper.By: Jon.F on 10 July 2021Still very loud if you have close neighbours, but very good tones can be had. I got it for $239 Au with a 10% off from ebay, which is about what you pay for a decent guitar pedal. Very happy....I have been a customer of Artist Guitars in the past and will again in the future. Keep up the good work. AAA+++
By: Artist GuitarsThanks a lot for your feedback and continued support. This means a lot to us. Cheers!
Perfect home practice ampBy: James on 9 July 2021Excellent response, sweet tone. From reading other reviews, there may be some variation in volume output. The unit I have has a volume that makes it perfect for using without annoying anyone else in the house, and I doubt the neighbor's would hear it even if it was cranked right up to max. I am an electronics tech, so I may at some point have a look to see what there is to see, but at the moment this is exactly what I was looking for, so no rush. It doesn't mind a bit of reverb or echo added into the mix, and handles it really well. Happy with the purchase, and really enjoying my first baby tube amp.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for your trust and all the support. Cheers!
Follow up.By: John wilson on 14 June 2021Yes, it does the job mic'd up in a 4 piece alrighty. Real well. The lack of a tone control is not a problem - it's sound is right where it needs to be to cut through and I've been surprised at how loud I can get it on stage without even looking like feeding back, and no trouble at all hearing it. Of course it doesn't sound like a big amp, but that doesn't matter. A great little bit of kit.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you for the feedback. We're happy to know that you're satisfied with your TweedtoneV amp. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Cheers.
Little RipperBy: Jesmond on 2 June 2021I wish I had bought one earlier! This is an outstanding amp for its size and price. It's well built and feels solid, and for a small amp it nails the Tweed tone. I was surprised how loud it is when dialled up - it has big balls for a small amp (am I allowed to say that?). I like its simplicity too. I am yet to break it in, but it sounds great regardless. Well done Artist Guitars!
By: Artist GuitarsThanks for the review and we're glad to know that you were blown away by the TweedtoneV amp. Cheers!
Tweedtone vBy: Mike Crowe on 27 May 2021Wow what a great little amp , arrived couple of days ago and I’m still playing with it every day . More than enough power and tone wise it is simply great , thanks Artist for another great product !!
Just what I wantedBy: Max on 21 May 2021Was hunting around for a valve tube amp around october last year, after listening to the intheblues review decided I liked to tone and was ready to order; unfortunately the amp was out of stock with no outlook on a restock date. Having bought a new amp in the interim, I got an email a few weeks go for the restock alert and ordered immediately. Turned up a few days later, looks great, nice and compact, and sounds lovely and warm with single coils and humbuckers. Essentially I liked the tone I heard from the video, and it lives up to that in real life. It's simplicity for me is a real plus, and what is offered is done well. Thanks Artist guitars for a quality product at an affordable price.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for the review and we are happy to know that you are satisfied and happy with your new amp! Cheers.
Tweed ToneVBy: john wilson on 7 May 2021Firstly thanks for the speedy, free delivery. Very good. I bought this thing for harp and after only a few hours I reckon it's exactly what I was after. First impression was that it's louder than I'd expected. I have changed the preamp tube to a JJ 12AX7 which has a bit less gain than the stock 12AX7 which had tonnes of gain - good for guitar perhaps. With that small change (I haven't gone down to a 5751 or anything,yet) and a volume control at the mic or in a pedal it was easy to get sounding the way I liked. It has a 'boost' switch which I didn't need but maybe with a much lower gain preamp tube it might give like two usable channels with the 'boost' bringing the gain back up. I might try that down the track. Another happy surprise was that the cleaner tone, volume control at about 12 o'clock, was warm and juicy and eminently usable. From there on up it breaks up like a little champ ion, can get as dirty as you want, well as dirty as I want anyway. Some harp players may look to replace the speaker with something a bit more scooped but it's alright by me. I've only had it today and haven't tried it miced in a band situation but I'm confident it will do the job. I haven't had it long enough to find a problem perhaps, but so far it's five stars - and $250 !
By: Artist GuitarsThank you very much for your feedback with the amp. This is highly appreciated and this means a lot to us. If you have any questions or need any help, just let us know. Cheers!
Quiet? Am I missing something?By: Tony Williams on 6 October 2020I love this little beast! It feels solid and well put together, warms up quickly and satisfyingly and responds beautifully to my input. Sometimes I use a little delay or tremolo but mostly love its clean, unadulterated tones. I'm surprised when I hear people describe it as quiet. I haven't gone near cranking it to full volume but it scares me with my guitar volume set to just 2 or 3. I think I could easily get myself evicted with this little pocket rocket. Love it!
Worth the waitBy: Colin on 6 August 2020Preordered it 4 months ago but it was well worth the wait. Great little amp, sounds proper tweedy and the presence knob really adds some versatility to the tone. I tried a Joyo 5 watt and this leaves it for dead, it’s dead silent to, no hum until the vol knob gets almost full on. Even then the hum is barely noticeable. Swapped out the preamp tube for a 12AT7 and that gave a bit more clean headroom and seemed to work a lot better with humbuckers. The distortion with humbuckers at full volume seemed a bit tinny on some bass notes. The amp looks good to. A good little brother for the Tweedtone 20R.
