Good news for low watt tube lovers? perhaps....

I found these. They seem to be copies of the Epiphone valve amps. The design is uncanny but prices are lower. the 30w copy of the Epiphones blues custom is far cheaper. Epiphone comes in at £599 while this Grainger make ive never heard of is £299. Not just those two, all of the epiphone valve range.

GRAINGER

They have a copy of the So-Cal head + cab too. The whole half stack, including the 50w head is £399 compared to epiphones £549 and thats for the head only....
Wtf? how can cheap get cheaper!!

Hitting the guitar store on monday to check these things out!

Damn! You'd think they'd be smart enough to at least change the look of the amp, even if the insides were identical.

This has to be some sort of Epi-sanctioned re-branding effort...

The Epi's are made in China, wouldn't surprise me if the factory was slapping their own brand name on them and selling them off without much of a mark-up.

Remember that China doesn't have the same copyright infringement laws as other parts of the world. Epi opened themselves up to this by hiring that factory, IMO.
