Small and light compared to a lot of combo amps, this VHT packs a lot of punch for a six-watt amp. We could go on and on about it, but it might be better to let the VHT amp folks tell the story:
Boutique amp players will love the Special 6’s combination of handwired tube goodness, unique features and unparalleled value. The mod-friendly Special 6 is easy to customize for home amp builders and tube amp enthusiasts.
The Special 6 gets its powerful tube sound from one 12AX7 preamp tube and one 6V6 output tube. 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, handwired, simple, 2-knob package.
To further expand its range of tones, the Special 6 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.
