Great Small Tube Practice Amp

By: on 17 October 2021
If you're after that Fender small practice amp sound (which have been used by some of the greats in studio recording), then this is the amp. It's not the smallest of practice amps (about 30x30x20cm), but big enough to house an 8" speaker (you can fit a 10" if you're handy). Other than the obvious black Tolex used to cover the amp, the circuit is based on the 1956 Fender tweed Champ 5f1 schematic with only a few differences (rectifier is 5AR4/GZ34 other than 5Y3, bypass cap on the first triode, 8" celestion speaker while Fender's an 8" Jensen). The amp itself isn't real loud (maybe a little louder than speaking) and simple to use (turn it on, set the volume). The amp reacts to the type of pickups you're using (single coils generally sound clean up full, humbuckers get dirty about 1/2 to 2/3 volume and start farting out). An overdrive pedal works well with humbuckers as it takes some of that bottom end out and clean the signal up a bit. At the price you can get these (even full), the parts alone cost more than a kit amp of the same specs. So if you're looking for a practice amp that won't bug the neighbours, want a small amp with some character or just want to experiment with the 5F1 circuit for mods - this is the amp for you! I know this one's going to be a keeper.

Happy with the amp overall. I was getting a lot of rattle from the cab even at fairly low volumes. I seemed to have solved that by reoving metal screen that goes around the valves. Happy with the purchase.

I have had this for over a year now and it makes me smile every time I plug it in. At that price you can't go wrong. It is well made and sounds just like a Fender

Just buy it

Just buy one. Best amp I own. Immediately selling my boss katana and my artist cremetone after playing this thing. Sounds average on its own but with pedals it is the best thing I've ever owned.

Joyo JTA05 - Get One of These.

By: on 1 June 2021
Bought this from Artist Guitars via ebay. No dramas, thanks again, Artist. Anyway, internet banter tells us this amp is the same as the 50's Fender Champ circuit - for real. It has a Celestion speaker as standard and some modders have gone back to it after trying substitutes. So how does it sound? Really good! I have done a side by side comparison with another 5watt 8" Celestion loaded amp, that shall remain anonymous, and it kicked butt. The other amp was good but the Joyo was fatter. I also played at lower volume at a friends house, with a nice delay in front of the amp and no break up - very pleasing. Humbuckers and singles sound good but this becomes subjective. I tried both and I'm happy. There is one mod that may be worth doing - copied from "Add a 25uF/25v bypass capacitor across the 1K5 cathode resistor on V1 (first triode). This cap adds grit and gain. It is not shown on the original 5f1 schematic but is apparently present on most vintage champs." This mod should brighten the sound somewhat however you might think this unnecessary and the sound straight out of the box is pretty fat and lovely, just not terribly bright, which could be a good thing for lower volume settings. This amp is a steal for the price. Just get one.
