You are Buying a New RAT Modified V3 Epiphone Valve Junior Head Amplifier - All Valve - Point-2-Point Hand Wired - Converted to 10 Watts Output with Valve Rectifier and RAT 'OPR'.

This Amp has been

'RAT' Hot Rodded

- RAT HRVS - Hot Rod Valve Special -

The Stock Amp has VERY Basic Controls and is a bit of a 'One Trick Pony'.

It's a 'REAL' All Valve Amp - NO Transistors, Chips, Digital Processing or SMT (Surface-Mount Technology).

On the Test Bench the STOCK Amp is Producing 3.5 Watts RMS and about 6 Watts Peak Power into 8 Ohms. The Amp is Wide Open to some Great Modifications - So this is what I have done - - -

 - Additional 'RAT' Features -

1. 'OPR' - Output Power Reduction.

'OPR' lets you get a true 'Cranked Amp Sound' at VERY Low Volume Levels - Fat Harmonics - Sustain a Mile Long - the Full Works, but at MUCH Lower Volume. A Rotary Control allows you to Vary the Output Power of the Amp. As you 'Turn Down the Power' - The Volume Drops but the Tone is Maintained. The System is Electronic - NOT a Passive Speaker Attenuator.

2. - The Amp has been Totally Hand Wired using a RAT Glass Fibre Eyelet Board to Hold the Components.

3. - The Output Power of the Amp has been Increased to 10 Watts RMS using 2x EL84 Power Valves and a Fender Blues Junior Output Transformer in 'Push-Pull' - 'Self-Split' - 'Auto-Bias' Configuration. There is NO Background 'Hum' or 'Buzz'. Loads of 'Clean' and Loads of 'Crunch' Available.

4. - The Stock Amp uses a 'Silicon' Rectifier. This has been Changed to a Valve Rectifier. There is no 'Standby' Switch fitted to the Amp as this is not required with a Valve Rectifier. The Valve is an NOS EI 'EZ80'.

5. - 'Drive' and 'Master' Volume Controls - Allows Preamp Overdrive -or- Power Amp Overdrive -or- Both.

6. - 'Bright' Switch and 'Tone' Control.

7. - '3x Bias' -and- '3x Gain' Switches.

This gives you 9 Combinations of 'Voice' settings on the Preamp Valve. From 'Clean' -to- 'Major Crunch' - it makes the Amp a lot more Versatile with a high chance that you can find the sound you want.

The 'Bias' Switch -  

A. - 'Up' Position is 'Sharp and Bright' with Reduced Bass Response - Works Best with 'Humbucker' type Guitar Pickups.

B. - Centre Position is 'Clean and Mellow' - OK with Any Guitar Pickups.

C. - 'Down' Position is Factory Standard - Works best with 'Single Coil' Type Guitar Pickups.

The 'Gain' Switch -

A. - 'Up' (1) Position is 'Low' Gain.

B. - 'Centre' (2) Position is Factory Standard 'Medium' Gain.

C. - 'Down' (3) Position is 'High' Gain.

8. - 3x Speaker Outputs - 4, 8 or 16 Ohms.

9. - The Valves are NEW- Sovtek '12AX7WA' - 2x Fender 'GT-EL84-S' - NOS EI 'EZ80' Rectifier.

10. - 'Orange Drop' Tone Capacitors - 'IC' + 'Jackson' Smoothing Capacitors - HT and Heater Fuses - All Ceramic Valve Bases.

11. - New Front Panel. High Quality Knobs.

12. - Full 'RAT' User Manual detailing all of the Modifications.

- All Amps are 'PAT' approved -

The Modified Amp now has a Wide Range of Sounds, It is 3x more Powerful than a STOCK Amp. There is NO Background Noise and It Sounds Fantastic.

- And Finally -

This is a Superb Amplifier and you WILL be Delighted with it's Performance - If not, I will give you your Money Back.

 I Modify a Selection of Valve Amplifiers with Different Specifications -

Please check out my other listings to see what is Available.

If in the unlikely event your Amp stops working - I will put it right for you. My work and all Internal Parts will be Guaranteed for 12 Months.

A New RAT HRVS Epiphone Valve Junior V3 Head Amp (Speakers are NOT Included) will be sent By 24/48 Hour Carrier, as soon as Payment is Clear.
