This amp really caught my eye during all the NAMM hoopla. It even sounds great without any professional demos yet. I really think this amp is gonna kill for a wide variety of rock and heavy tones.

Did any of you order one?

Cool! Did you customize it at all or did you go with the stock black?

Black faceplate. Custom tolex - havent decided on color yet. Perhaps orange. And metal field LED. :)

He builds in batches so if you got in on this run it would be 3 months. I believe the next batch will start in the spring, so probably be looking at the end of summer. It's basically 3 months from whenever they start the run, so depending on what amp you want it could take some time if they're not scheduled to build that run for a few months.

Cool, good demos are needed for this amp.

I’m looking forward to getting mine in 2-3 months.

Couldn't wait anymore. Had to at least open the box! LOL!

I have to say, EVERYTHING on this amp feels "heavy duty". Switches, knobs, head shell, etc. It is NOT light that's for sure. I have owned some very expensive amps that felt kind of not-so-solid in hand. This is not one of them.

Judging from my Ares, I'd have to assume all Kyle's amps are built similarly: Like a brick shit house!

I want a Juno.

The Juno is aggressive in a good way. Did Kyle say if this is his take on a Jose style Marshall with a Jose master with clipping diodes or is he running a traditional JCMJMP style master configuration with all tube preamp?

It definitely crunches in a different frequency range than his other amps, I guess more hot-rodded Marshall Kerrang for lack of a better term. It still has a nice focused lowend punch to it without falling into bass dominant Mesa territory.

For one of the voices (I think “clipped”) he referred to it as Jose inspired.

Yeah clipped is the right voice I believe as well. That's what he said in our NAMM vid.

In addition to making some of the baddest amps on earth, Kyle is awesome with customer service and follow through!

Just got home and gave it about 15 minutes quietly... it’s insane! Hopefully I can capture it well for the vids. Even at low volume it’s killer.

Very different IMHO. Hasn’t gotten to crank it yet but all 3 gain modes (Clip, Crunch and Lead) are phenomenal. The amp overall seems pretty tight and aggressive but absolutely brings the rock. All the controls like the Bright and Feel knobs all actually make noticeable differences.

Thanks man. I just rearranged the studio and got my new monitors hooked up so I’ll be dialing in and prepping this weekend for sure.

For those interested, maybe I’ll do a thing where I skip between camera audio and mic’d sounds.

I'm actually curious, have you played an Ares? My Ares had this grainy quality to the gain that I had a love/hate relationship with and I'm curious if the Juno has the same thing.

I haven’t. Would like to try one. Perhaps Kyle will have me do some more demos of his other stuff.

Very different IMHO. Hasn’t gotten to crank it yet but all 3 gain modes (Clip, Crunch and Lead) are phenomenal. The amp overall seems pretty tight and aggressive but absolutely brings the rock. All the controls like the Bright and Feel knobs all actually make noticeable differences.


I'm actually curious, have you played an Ares? My Ares had this grainy quality to the gain that I had a love/hate relationship with and I'm curious if the Juno has the same thing.


Curious if you've run it with any eq in the loop? Every amp I've owned has had a grainy/fizzy quality to the tone on there own. I suck out the 8 and 16 KHz sliders on an MXR 10 band and its makes the world of difference; for me anyway :dunno:

My god I :inlove: my Ares.

I hear the graininess too in clips go the Artemis/Gemini and Colossus. It's the one thing that's keeping me from going headlong in to KSR zealotry as the other attributes of Kyle's stuff are outstanding. I'm hoping the Juno may be smoother or that the graininess can be dealt with on the Artemis.

^^^ No offense and I'm not trying to come off sounding like a douche, but don't judge an amp from clips. Clips are fun and all, but they're usually not anywhere near what your actually gonna hear sitting in front of the amp.

I have multiple other amps and it was something that was unique to the Aries. Sometimes I absolutely loved it, but sometimes it just struck me as grainy and a bit on the harsh side. I know the Juno is a hotrodded version of the Orthos II (according to Kyle) which is essentially the Ares with a clean channel so I am curious about it. I have loved what I have heard of the Juno so far.

I gotchya :thumbsup: Might just not be your thing. Have you tried playing with tubes?

I'm not sure what cocktail of preamp tubes are in my Ares, I don't think they're stock, and the power tubes are JJ 6L6 but I have always thought it sounded right to my ears. I do eventually plan on trying it with some EL34 and KT88s.

There's definitely a grainy character to the KSR gain. That's where the comparisons to Rectos/Soldanos come from, but I'm not sure about the Juno.

I've tried SED and Sino EL34 tubes as well as 6L6 Bstr and a few others in my Ares. I like the stock tubes the best followed by the SED EL34. I had an orthos but prefer the vocal voicing of the Ares. Be sure to buy direct.There are some shady people out there pawning off used ones as new. Shameless.
