• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Just ordered the Jet City 50w head....

JCA50H ordered from MF (12% off, free shipping). 2 x 6L6, 5 x 12ax7, Soldano designed. Will be running it through my Stoneage 2x12C with Scumback M75's. First new amp in a while, will see how it compares to my Orange.

I've had a JCA20H for about 1 1/2 years and it's great. I use it at the smaller clubs with the 1x12 cab. Can't beat it for the price.

It's decent but I'm gonna return it. Was just curious but it doesn't hold a candle to my '07 Rockerverb 50. Was running through the Scumback M75's and I honestly can't imagine how it would sound through Celestion V30's or G12H's - it's harsh sounding to me.

Soldano designed circuit or not...the generic MIC parts (caps, resistors, wiring, transformers) not to mention all chinese tubes (12ax7b's) just don't cut it. It honestly sounds like a pedal to me.

So there ya go, my 2 cents review. I think I'm gonna pony up and try a Fargen!!!
