Hand-wired, all-tube goodness with extra gain and unique controls.

With its additional preamp gain stage, amazing variable Watts control, unique Depth control and tube-driven effects loop, the new high-gain Special 6 Ultra combo amp rockets the popular Special 6 platform to the next level.

The Special 6 Ultra combo's added gain stage provides plenty of overdrive for searing leads, bone-crushing crunch, and gristly grind, while its amazingly effective variable Watts control can reduce the volume to whisper-quiet bedroom practice levels-while maintaining the same overdriven tone, texture and dynamic feel.

The Special 6 Ultra combo features the same unique Volume and Tone controls as the original Special 6, the same footswitchable Boost, High/Low Power switch, and a similarly mod-friendly eyelet board. In addition, the Special 6 Ultra features a unique multi-position Depth control that fine-tunes the low-frequency depth; this feature allows you to carefully voice the amp's low-end to perfectly suit a wide range of guitars, pickups, speakers, and musical styles.

The Special 6 Ultra combo ships with a 6V6 output tube for sweet clean and rich overdrive tones, and to accommodate tone-seeking experimenters, it can accept a wide range of alternate output tubes as well. The Special 6 Ultra combo also features an all-tube buffered effects loop, and is loaded with a 12" VHT ChromeBack speaker.

  • VHT Ultra 6

    As reviewed by JAMES GANN on 3/27/2012

    Just got mine today and I must say i am pleased. The clean channel sounds great and has a boost if needed. The ultra channel also sounds great. Great little amp for the cost.

  • A M A Z I N G TONE!

    As reviewed by ash holland on 8/16/2012

    My guitar instructor bought one of these and after playing through it for an hour I went out and picked one up at Guitar Center. I've played plenty of Fender Amps ($1000+) and more recently Mesa 5/50 Express ($999) then a Mesa Mini-Rectifier head through 2 Mesa widebody Thiele cabs ($1400). Those sounded good but it always felt like I wasn't getting the best tone out of them. This little amp blows me away. No idea how VHT has crammed so much tone into an amp at a pricepoint below $500. I was skeptical of the "Hand-Made in China" and truly would rather buy American, but all you need to do is plug in, turn the amp all the way up, roll back on the guitar volume a little and you're there- AMAZING tone that lets your guitar truly shine. I play a Strat w/Seymour Duncan Screamin' Demon in the bridge, Vintage Rail in the middle and Cool Rail in the neck w/a Graph-tech Gost Piezo pick-up in the saddles and this amp makes it all sing- no matter what pick-up configuration I'm using. Want to smile and be happy with your tone and know you don't ever need another amp or have to fiddle with your pick-ups anymore- Believe the hype, it's for real and the other Amp manufacturers out there should be shaking in their boots. Buy this amp you won't be sorry.

  • Best Small Valve Combo I've Ever plugged into

    As reviewed by Ryan Hays on 5/25/2012

    I played this little box of joy at a local shop for 3hrs. it has the most flexible internal Pure Tube Distortion I'v ever heard. The wattage dial lets you get that throaty tone every guitarist craves while playing at volumes that don't disturb the peace in any situation. Needless to say it can get loud. Also the Tone and overtone is perfect. the only reason i don't own one of these yet is i fell in love with a beautiful blonde nashville telecaster that i had to have. It will not disappoint.
