The Amp

The Electar 10 Watt Amp is suitable if you are just beginning to play electric guitar.

epiphone 10 watt amp

  • Volume control
  • A clean play and distortion button
  • Treble and Bass controls
  • Aux in to plug your MP3 for music to play to
  • Headphone plug outlet
  • Power switch with a red light.
  • Super small and light amp

Some reviews reflect that the amp can be a little light on tone, but it is only 10 watts. It’s a good amp to plug into for a beginner.

Here are some other reviews on this great package.

The history of the Epiphone Guitar

In 1957, Gibson Guitars bought the Epiphone company. This means Epiphone has a license

to use the design and specifications of the famous Les Paul Guitar design.

Gibson Les Paul guitars are built in Nashville in the USA and Epiphone Les Paul Guitars have been built in Qingdao in China, since 2004.

Although Epiphone is a less expensive Les Paul, it still has a high standard of finish and quality fittings. They are both solid-body guitars but the Epiphone is lighter, which can be a big bonus when you stand up to play for hours.

A great buy for a new guitarist. You don’t need talent, just the desire to be a great guitarist.


Once you have bought your guitar come back and have a read of my posts for the beginner guitarist.

Thank you for reading this review. I hope it has helped.

Please feel free to offer any comments or ask any questions that you may still have.

  1. Seriously, I am taking note of this now. My husband wanted to be part of a band at some point, and it seems like the Epiphone is a good guitar to start with. Its great that there’s a lot of inclusions in the pack so you won’t have to think about it anymore, plus the free online lessons will be very helpful. And since the amp is just 10 watts, it’s just right. Glad I came across this. Thank you!

    • Hi Raquel,

      He is going to love you even more if you get this for him. Epiphone is owned by Gibson Guitars, the design is the same the only difference is the wood that they use, which makes them less expensive. My local lead guitarist plays an Epiphone and it sounds terrific. I hope you use my link when you are ready to buy.

      The online lessons will get him started and you can read about two great courses on my website when he is looking for a bigger course.

      Let me know if I can help in any way.



  2. Well! I’m not buying for myself but for my son and the only thing I can say is that I am very impressed with this guitar. He has only an acoustic guitar but I decided to buy him an electric guitar since he just created a band just to support him. This Epiphone led Paul electric player pack cannot be more better for him. Thumbs up to you for reviewing it here

    • Hi Shelley, I’m delighted that you found this helpful. What a lovely idea for your son and his new band, he will have a ball with this. I hope you can go through my link when you are ready to buy.

      Let me know if I can help in any way.


  3. Wonderful information on this player pack. This is helpful for parents who have children that are interested in taking guitar lessons. I, myself, have a son who is a guitarist and this is something that I would have looked into when he first started. The idea that it comes with everything that a new and aspiring guitarist needs is great. It sure beats buying everything separately.

    • Hi Geri, thanks so much for your comments. I am so glad that you would find this helpful.

      Buying everything at once is a great idea and a better price too. I hope your son is enjoying his playing. Let me know if I can answer any questions you may have in the future.


  4. Thanks for sharing with us this great article because it has really been fun because I have enjoyed reading your article and thanks for also providing us the historical background of the Epiphone guitar and the features of the Epiphone Mes Paul electric player pack thanks for admin for sharing with us I advance 

  5. Amazing! I have watched how the guitar functions and I was surprised that this instrument can produce all those sounds. I love the small gadget that tells you if you are in tune or not. I could spend all day practicing on this guitar as I feel like I want to be the next big guitarist. Thank you for the Epiphone Guitar history and this great demonstration.

    • Hi Carol,

      You are welcome. It really can make a lot of sounds. A great way to feel good when you first start playing. Thanks for your comment.


  6. Hi Lily,

    Great post there. And that video review is done so wonderfully.

    I have been desiring to learn guitar but I’ve tried playing (and I own an acoustic one). I’d opted for this since I didn’t need an amp.
    For all the prices of a full package I’ve seen before, this Epiphone Les Paul Electric Player Pack is the most affordable one. The guitar also looks durable and that Amp looks pretty okay for any beginner to start learning.

    • Thanks for the feedback Boniface. I have a few acoustic guitars and an electric and think this package is a great deal for a beginner. You don’t get a huge amount of grunt from any small amp but this is a great start.


  7. Epiphone les Paul Electric Player is such a great electric guitar for beginner that i cannot seem to point out any sort of cons with it and I’m left with singing only the praises of this guitar.
