If you're looking at this amplifier thinking this is a VHT amplifier then you're completely wrong. If you've seen VHT amplifiers out gigging from your favorite rock 'n roll or metal act and then this is not to be the amps that they were using. There was a dispute or something rather which VHT took its property and designs and went off and form Fryette amplifiers. The new VHT is basically a Chinese amplifier company that continues to use the logo and brand name of VHT. So this amplifier is nothing to what you expect and it's very cheap and doesn't sound at all like you would want a regular and normal VHT amplifier to sound.

SOUNDS


This amplifier comes with two channels which is a basically a high and low gain input signal. This amplifier features one 6V6 power tube and two 12ax7 preamp tubes. One cool thing I guess on this amplifier is the you have a depth control which is very useful when you use a low wattage amp like this one. This is a 6 W amplifier so it's not to give very loud and it's pretty much designed to be used as a practice utensil. So the depth control was a nice feature to have when you are dealing with volumes controls because you really lack a low and bottom end response when you only use a low wattage amplifier.

OVERALL OPINION


At new you can find these amplifiers for right around $300. They are made in China which I believe and they do not sound like the original VHT amplifiers. I would not recommend this amplifier to anyone simply because they are using what was originally built and designed by the founders of Fryette and VHT.
