PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the VHT Amplifiers and AXL Guitars room. In this segment, we get to see a prototype from both companies--a VHT Special 6 Ultra head and a Badwater USA S-style guitar.

The VHT Special 6 Ultra is based on the Special 6 head that was released at last Winter NAMM, but has an EL34 power tube.

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.

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.
