Beginner's review pt 31: VHT Special 6 Ultra Combo

the bulky 6w amp
I went to Guitar Gallery in Ampang to test this amp. The shop is the distributor for this brand. They have several models of the VHT but I only tested the Special 6 Ultra Combo. It's a 6w amp with some added features.

you may choose high or low power, if its still too loud .. use the power attenuator
It has a power attenuation, which is useful for those staying in an apartment. At full power, this amp is loud and at minimum power it has affected the tone I'm afraid. In my opinion, this amp sounds better with power from 3-6w.

the texture switch
Another feature is the texture switch. I think this is an EQ control but in a simple presentation.

two inputs?
Well, this is the part that I don't understand. Technically this amp is a 1 channel amp, but it has two inputs for clean and ultra/gain .. so does that makes it a 2 channel amp or what? .. It can be troublesome to switch inputs ... 

Its a hand wired amp and MIC, price .. almost RM2000. Tone wise, I know this is subjective but with the selling price, I think there are better amps out there ...

Tested with LTD Kamikaze.
