Warm sounding, simple to use!By: Dog on 23 December 2020With just a single volume knob, there isn’t much you need to do to get this thing sounding great. Keep it below 3 (out of 12) on the dial and it’s warm and clean, past 3 out of 12 and it gets both a loud and gritty. Keep turning the knob and it gets dirtier and dirtier. With humbuckers it really snarls - great for blues or Rock’n’Roll. I’ve run a few different pedals in front and they all work really well - couple of big muffs, delays, chorus, fox tone machine, fuzz face, super fuzz, muff fuzz, tone bender (I love fuzz pedals and this amp works well with them all!), and at lower volumes an overdrive works wonders. I think it’s the best practice amp I’ve ever had. And even though it doesn’t have a bunch of third rate fx built in its sound is so good you’ll quickly realise you don’t need 1001 amp/cab emulators - just a great responsive WARM tone with plenty of volume for home practice, recording or jamming with others. I did swap the stock preamp tube with a few different ones I had here, and settled on a tung sol. It also has speaker out jack, and sounded great through a 112. (I was actually planning on building a 5f1amp (which this is a clone of), but the parts alone cost 3x or more what this thing does - just the power and output transformers here in n aus will set you back more than this thing is new - add a speaker, jacks, knob, pot, turret board & components and you looking at the better part of a grand. Granted, this thing has a couple of pcb’s inside and is mass produced in China, but it sounds fine (my plan was to actually gut it, keep the speaker and transformers and re build it, but it sounds great so I’m keeping it as is for now - BEWARE valve amps can keep lethal voltages in the circuits even when switched off - don’t tinker if you don’t know what’s what!)
A new standard at a price musicians can affordBy: Chris Sinclair on 1 September 2020I've been a professional musician for 40 years and this is the best deal I've ever seen in a REAL guitar amp. You get a massive valve amp tone , form clean , breaking up all the way through to Marshall-type overdrive, and the sound is not lacking in any way. 5 watts is plenty for home use, but louder than you might think, and the price is half the amount that it would cost to buy a kit to make the same amp your self. To be honest, I'm now eyeing off the 20 watt-er , for the odd gig or 2. Great work Joyo .
Great ampBy: Greg on 22 May 2020I like the joyo sweet baby amp so much I purchased 2 of them and run them together as l play blues the tubes break nicely at small gigs and mic through pa at louder gigs
First tube ampBy: KEVIN WATSON on 23 March 2020Never tried a tube amp before and at the price I couldn't resist .I'm sold they really are a great sound and with a joyo tubescreamer I'm just loving what this amp can do ,great buy , highly recommend.
Still Going StrongBy: Matthew on 29 August 2019This is probably the best Champ-Alike on the market. For practice, nothing at this price-point will deliver the same sound and tube feel. Great for technique practice, anything clean (country, jazz, etc) right up to some reasonably heavy stuff - think Led Zep at low volume (almost ;) ) It's rugged and the PCB is mostly (if not entirely) through-hole so you can fix anything that goes wrong. If you're into modding or building, this guy is an unbeatable source of donor parts and chassis/cab/speaker, etc ...
Joyo JTA05 5W Class-A All Tube Guitar Amplifier isBy: Ben on 13 August 2019I just couldn't resist the Joyo Sweet Baby amp when I saw some reviews, including Shane from In The Blues. After it arrived today I plugged it in, tried it out with a couple of guitars & was blown away. Sure, it's a cheap amp & gets a bit raspy & flubby past about 4 on the volume & even some rattling (I'm sure re-seating the tubes will fix that), but once I plugged in some pedals it was just magic. I bought this amp because it looked like great value with the 8" Celestion speaker, which I figured worked out as better value for money than doing a speaker swap in my Vox AC4C1BL. Now I reckon my Joyo Sweet Baby will be my go to amp & my Vox will be relegated to backup amp if I blow a tube!
Love this ampBy: Graham on 13 June 2019This amp is absolutely awesome. Just plug in turn up and play and this little Beauty really kicks out a great sound. It takes pedals very well and cleans up if you roll back on the guitar volume but when you turn up and really dig in this amp is loud. I've used it for both practice and warm up and also a few smaller gigs and it was perfect.
Classic Tube amp sound!By: Rob McCarthy on 23 May 2019Love this little beast. Warm all tube sound, simple, and lets the player and guitar do the creative work. No gimmicks. It's remarkably loud and clean and it breaks up real nice at high gain. Someone said it's only 5 Watts (rms). I was in a church hall in a band and had to turn it down. They couldn't believe it's volume and tone. The Celestion Speaker helps a lot too. A classic, Having built valve amps as a young feller back in the 60s it brings back memories and I love it!
Great little jigger.By: Stuart McKleaine on 13 March 2019After a less than auspicious start with no sound out of my first offering. My replacement experience was pain free. My second offering works just fine. Nice tone. Pleasant breakup when pushed. My pedals have taken on a whole new life too. Even my wife commented on how good it sounds. What a great amp for a great price! I'm looking forward to trying other products in the range as I'm one happy camper.
JOYO 5 Watt goodnessBy: Kim on 7 March 2019For the price this is one very sweet tube sonic device ! Brilliant service from AG as always.
