Product: Legacy Valve Edition 5 (Epiphone Valve Junior) - Modified
Condition: Used (modified)

Legacy Valve Edition 5. This is a rebadged Epiphone Valve Junior - they were sold by the music dealer Billy Hughes for a while about 10 years ago.I have replaced the speaker with a 8" Alnico vintage music driver - an Australian made Magnavox (probably 50s or 60s manufacture). The driver is the correct 4 Ohm load. The new speakers changed the character of the amp - its a bit quieter, breaks up sooner, and produces a wonderfully smooth overdrive (better in my view than the boxy distortion the original speaker produced). This amp also has a vintage Mullard Branded Australian made EL84, and a USA made GE 12ax7 - both decent vintage tubes. The tubes together with the alnico driver come together to make a very sweet bedroom amp, and its loud enough to crank up at your jams too. Gorgeous with single coils in the bedroom, but capacble of amazing things when playing loud through humbuckers.I will include the original speaker, but also a spare alnico Magnovox speaker (the second one has deteriorating surrounds). In great working condition. A couple of knocks and crapes, but overall very well looked after. Including the electrical disclaimer below as I have replaced the speaker and the tubes.
