The Pittbull Hundred/CL provides two channels of unapologetic attitude with a 100-watt power plant, delivering thick, touch-sensitive response with a decidedly British persuasion.

Matt Blackett of Guitar Player Magazine wrote, "The Hundred/CL’s red channel produced 'one of the biggest, tightest, heaviest tones I’ve ever heard, and it made me feel all-powerful and humbled at the same time.'" 

Pittbull Series amps have been used on countless recordings and tours including classic albums by Helmet (Page Hamilton), Bon Jovi (Richie Sambora) Anthrax (Rob Caggiano) and Slipknot (Mick Thompson). 

This is a no-nonsense amplifier with a deceptively simple feature set in which either channel can serve as a Clean, Vintage Crunch or Hi-gain channel. The CL's Red & Green channels are similarly configured, but voiced slightly differently for a wide palette of pristine clean, slightly dirty clean, spanking crunch and aggressive, but harmonically rich overdrive. Combined with an extremely expressive graphic EQ, this allows for quick and intuitive sound sculpting.

Getting familiar with the Hundred/CL amplifier is easy, so don’t be terribly surprised when you find yourself up and running in no time. First-hand experience and real world application will yield the ultimate satisfaction of finding your own path of comprehension and self-expression.

The Pittbull Hundred/CL, paired with the FatBottom 412 cabinet (sold separately), delivers ground-shaking thump and blow-your-hair-back, low-end projection. For the ultimate rig, couple the Hundred/CL with the FatBottom 412 cabinet.

    I used to test VHT(FRYETTE) Pittbull G100/CL EQ 100 Watt & now I own it. Features: It's has a million feature on it beyond my expectation. Series & Parallel Loop with Level Control are very useful,Presence, Depth are work great & so on.The Grephic EQ is very sensitive & work great better than the other amps. ******** This is "All In One" Amplifier ******* Quality: RED CHANNEL, the sound is like the monster of ROCK that I never had.It'so big, huge & clear. GREEN CHANNEL: It's very nice & very clear tone. *** I very love the voicing switches of each channel include:EDGE,SHIFT,BOOST, it make the sound very extremely. Value: If you need the great amp, the 100/CL EQ is the answer. Overall: It has nothing but it is everything. *** Try to test it & compare to the others like this then make a decition by yourself.


    Swiss Army Knife of Tone!

    By Nicholas Greenwood

    from Seattle, WA

    Comments about Fryette Pittbull Hundred/CL G100CL/EQ 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    KILLER amp! 100 watts (switchable down to 50) of clear EL34 tone. The RED and GREEN channels are both LEAD channels, meaning, one isn't meant to just be 'clean' and the other 'dirty'. You can tailor what you need out of either one. The GREEN channel has a little more of a dry midrange punch (think Marshall/British) and the RED is a little more rounded (my ideal for metal). The footswitchable graphic EQ is perhaps the greatest feature of the whole thing. It's got a lot of bells and whistles and the learning curve is a little steep; if you haven't found a hundred different tones you like, you simply haven't spent enough time with it. Tweak the heck out of this thing and you will be rewarded. Techs that have worked on mine for tube replacement have always had great things to say, most memorably that it's a "Swiss army knife of tone". Full effects loop support for all of you space-heads and pedal geeks, too. NOTE: Good, solid clean tones can be coaxed from the Pittbull with some careful tweaks, but the truth is that this amp is truly meant to breathe fire. The rating/headroom of the tubes that you choose to put in it will make a difference on how this plays out for you. Talk to your amp tech and choose well.
