Hand-wired tube goodness, unique features, and unparalleled value.
The six-watt Special 6 guitar combo amp gets its powerful tube sound from one 12AX7 preamp tube and one 6V6 output tube, with a 10" VHT High-Sensitivity speaker. It boasts a footswitchable Gain Boost feature that significantly expands its range of tones—it's the only amp in its class that excels at both clean and overdriven tones, and it's the only amp in its class to offer a footswitchable boost. With the Gain Boost, players can instantly toggle between clean rhythm tones and overdriven leads, essentially duplicating the footswitchable functions of a 2-channel amp in an all-tube, hand-wired, simple, 2-knob combo.
To further expand its range of tones, the Special 6 combo also features a High/Low power switch that enhances low-volume tones with extra-smooth richness (when in half-power mode). It's a great feature for recording, or for low-volume "bedroom" players. In high-power mode, it's one of the few amps in its class that is loud enough to compete with a strong drummer.
The mod-friendly VHT Special 6 guitar combo amp is easy to customize for home amp builders and tube-amp enthusiasts.
