The VHT Special 6 is an all-tube amp with handwired components, designed to be an affordable plug-and-play tube amp that can also be used as base for modifications.
At its core is a 6W amplifier section with 12AX7 preamp tube and 6V6 output tube.
And this simple configuration is matched by its simple control layout which includes a volume and tone knob.
The Special 6 also features a High/Low power switch that makes it easier to achieve cranked tones at lower volumes.
Expanding its tone options further is the inclusion of built-in boost via the push/pull volume knob, this can also be controlled via an optional footswitch.
