The six-watt Special 6 guitar amp head 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, hand-wired, 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.

    Comments about VHT Amplification Special 6 6W Hand-Wired Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

    You can not build and wire a simple tube amp from scratch for the price of this product. It sounds great stock but there is a world of posibilities for those so inclined to tinker. Despite it beeing only 6w, it gets plenty loud. It couldn't hang with an agressive drummer, but in a small venue it could hold its own. Very high headroom with single coils and nice natural breakup with humbuckers or p-90s. It talkes pedals very well. Every time I think about getting a more expensive amp, i sit an play this one for a while and the G.A.S. subsides.
