VHT Special 6 Ultra Combo 1x12 Tube Amp
With its additional preamp gain stage, amazing variable Watts control, unique Depth control and tube-driven effects loop, the new high-gain Special 6 Ultra rockets the popular Special 6 platform to the next level.
The Special 6 Ultra’s added gain stage provides plenty of overdrive for searing leads, bone-crushing crunch, and gristly grind, while its amazingly effective variable Watts control can reduce the volume to whisper-quiet bedroom practice levels — while maintaining the same overdriven tone, texture and dynamic feel.
The Special 6 Ultra features the same unique Volume and Tone controls as the original Special 6, the same footswitchable Boost, High/Low Power switch, and a similarly mod-friendly eyelet board. In addition, the Special 6 Ultra features a unique multi-position Depth control that fine-tunes the low-frequency depth; this feature allows you to carefully voice the amp’s low-end to perfectly suit a wide range of guitars, pickups, speakers, and musical styles.
The Special 6 Ultra ships with a 6V6 output tube for sweet clean and rich overdrive tones, and to accommodate tone-seeking experimenters, it can accept a wide range of alternate output tubes as well. The Special 6 Ultra also features an all-tube buffered effects loop.
The Special 6 Ultra Combo and Head share the same chassis, circuit and layout design and configuration. The Special 6 Combo is loaded with a 12” VHT ChromeBack speaker.

Value Quality Features
Great flexibility and nice tube tone. I'm not a pro I just like to play and this little amp is surprisingly loud and rangey.
Controls feel good and are easy to use.
This amp is built with people who like to mod in mind and the eyelet board is easy to access to swap out parts real easy.
I have been more than happy with my purchase. (Posted on 3/28/2012)
