NAMM '10 - VHT Amplifiers Special 6 Demo
January 28, 2010
PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for NAMM 2010 where she visits the VHT Amps booth. In this segment, we get our first taste of the new Special 6, hand-wired guitar amp.
The Special features hand-wired, point to point circuit board with 1-12AX7 preamp tube and 1-6V6 power tube. It boasts a footswitchable Gain Boost feature that expands its range of tones--the boost footswitch is advertised to make the Special 6 work/sound like s 2-channel amp with its distinct tonal differences. Also, the Special 6 also features a High/Low power switch that enhances low-volume tones with extra-smooth richness (when in half-power mode) and the High section is said to work at gigging volumes within a competing full-band scenario.
