An extremely portable head that maintains boutique quality and loads of extras.
The Ventura, part of 65amps' “Working Pro” Red Line, is a response to the over-saturation of “Lunch Box” type amps in the market that are lacking in quality for professional players. The Ventura illustrates that a compact, portable amp can be combined with high-level, professional functionality. The Ventura is made in 65amps’ factory in Los Angeles utilizing the same high-level materials and engineering experience as always.
The Ventura uses a 2-6V6 power section and front end utilizing 65amps’ most popular circuits, The Color channel of the London and the Bump Circuit of the SoHo. This allows the Ventura to create a rich palette of American and British tones all with the signature flair that has made 65amps a major presence on top-level tours and recording studios around the world.
All Red Line 65amps feature:
American-Made, High-Grade Transformers Made in Chicago – Using high-grade M6 steel and pure copper windings 65amps Redline transformers will deliver beautiful, clear vintage tone that is not available using non-US steel.
SoZo Capacitors – For the most musical and detailed response from your amplifier. SoZos are the most musical, consistent and complete sounding capacitors on the market. Made to the highest standards in the USA.
Aluminum Chassis – All of 65smps' chassis are made from high-grade aluminum here in Los Angeles. This quality of chassis is the best we’ve found for grounding quietly, shielding against 21st century RF sources that are everywhere, and the ruggedness required for working professionals.
Authentic Allen-Bradley Carbon Comp resistors where it counts – In the signal path of all 65amps are the best sounding resistors known: Allen-Bradley Carbon Comps. Renown for decades as the “magic” part required for getting “that” sound, the Allen-Bradley resistor is an unparalleled finishing touch for your tone. All other resistors are 1% tolerance mil-spec parts made in the Americas that ensure that your amp will always be performing at peak potential and always be safe.
