VHT AV-SP1-6 Special 6 Combo


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.

With one 12AX7 preamp tube and one 6V6 output tube, the Special 6's minimal circuitry provides the the purest and most direct link between your guitar and speaker. The Special 6 combo has a strong-sounding 10" speaker with large magnet. Built to last, the Special 6 is the only amp in this price with true vintage-style handwiring.
