Jet City Amplification has been a big hit on the amp market in recent years. They have gotten a good sounding amp at unbelievably low prices. I do believe they are made overseas and that does keep the prices low and for this manufacturer it is all about the money and not the quality. These amps are not that great in quality. They do sound pretty good but they will not hold up to any regular use and abuse taking to clubs and gigging night after night.

These amps are essentially a cheaper version of the Soldano amps. It actually is the fellas over at Soldano who design the amps. So you know you are going to get a very good sounding amp.

This amp is aone of the best amps that Jet City makes. This have a great British flavor of distortion behind it. This is a single channel amp which does have a good clean tone when you roll down the gain on the preamp section or your guitar's volume pot. But the best part about this amp is the thick juicy distortion tone that you get out of the preamp gain being maxed out. There is a very familiar tone and voicing there that sounds a lot like an SLO.


At new these amps come in at around $249, which is a heck of a good price for this amp. Other than Blackstar and maybe a couple other manufacturers there isn't anyone who can get this good of an amp at this low of a new price. Peavey does have some decent amps but nothing this low. I would recommend this amp to anyone who need s good 20 watt head and doesn't want to spend more than a normal distortion or overdrive pedal prices.
