With 35W of dual 6L6 Class A magic, two independent channels with three-band equalization powered by five 12AX7 tubes, a lead channel with extraordinary gain and sustain, a super rhythm channel with oodles of headroom, and a new channel assignable and footswitchable Accutronics spring reverb, the Venus 5 is a stellar addition to the Venus family.

The Rivera Vintage-Modern switch on the rear panel allows the power to be cut down to 15 watts while enhancing the even order harmonics, making it indispensable for low-level recording, small performances and practice. A detachable power cable as well as the AC mains fuse is easily accessed. Two speaker jacks and an impedance selector switch allow connection to the internal as well as external speakers. A Line Out jack gives you the option of slaving another amp or recording directly from the power amp signal that is at line level. An active effects loop with send and return level controls allows easy patching and signal matching to any external signal processor chain.

A three-function FS-7R footswitch is included.
