Anyone tried these? Are they any good? They seem really low-priced and I was wondering if that said something about the quality.

None of my local shops have them to try. :(

Scrybe,
I couldn't find anything called Grainger, but I did find reviews for Granger amps. Not sure if it's the same thing, but here's a link to the review I found...

no, I don't think so. here's a link I found to a grainger blues twin - http://www.cselinks.com/shopping-emporium/product.php?p=17878763&c=242

apparently they're clones of the epi valve series at a fraction of the price. think it might just be UK based from what I've found out, but they seem aight and good for modding.

just wondering people's thoughts...

Those are the Epiphone amps rebranded. They do all the same amps as you see in the Epi series.

Are you looking at the amps in Sound control? as far as I am aware they are, as has been stated, rebadged Epi's. I think Im going to have a look at one of the 'valve juniors' soon. I also believe the Harley Benton GA amps from Thomann are essentially epi's too but with a cream tolex cover and a tone control, and even cheaper than the Grainger (£70 for the 'junior'). Its awfully tempting....

I tried a Grainger 'valve junior' today while trying out the stunning deal sound control are running on the Vox cooltron pedals (more of which later). Took my own guitar along, tried said pedals into a shop AD30 (nice) and the VJ. It was lovely - fairly clean up to around halfway round, then some lovely smooth breakup, which responded really well to the guitar volume knob. Using the volum/pickup selection and amp volume all together offered a LOT of versatility and I was very impressed. Then I tried adding the pedal to the mix and was sold......sadly, didnt get the amp - space dictates I can really only have one amp hanging about but I got the pedal - a Vox Big Ben overdrive, lots of lovely warm gain. Another bargain - £29 for a brand new cooltron 8) (UK readers should check out the soundcontrol website - big clearance on at the minute).

Im having a good think about that 5W amp now.... :twisted:
