The EP Series, also know as the Standard Series, was a line of Epiphone solid state amplifers that were produced from 1988-2005

The Standard Series was introduced in 1988 and was a sign of Epiphone moving their production into Asia. This fresh solid state line was presented with black tolex, black metal grill and various gain stages to accommodate the needs of players. The models showcased were the EP10, EP25R, EP60R and EP25 Bass. Affordability was a key factor in the success of the Standard Series as the amp began showing up music stores around the world.

In 1993 the modern Standard Series evolved with tweed cabinet covering and brown grill cloth. This generation of amplifiers consisted of the EP-800, 800R, 800B, 1000, 1000R, 1000B, SC28 & SC210. In 2001 the EP-Series was redesigned again with a silver control panel and grille cloth and sported the Epiphone "Epsilon" flying E logo. The remaning amps in this new lineup were the 800R, 1000R, 1000B and SC210.
