OVERVIEW

A tiny package that packs a full-powered punch pushed through a 12" speaker.

The Ventura, part of 65amps “Working Pro” Red Line, is a response to the over-saturation of “Lunch Box” type amps in the market that are lacking in quality for professional players. The Ventura illustrates that a compact, portable amp can be combined with high-level, professional functionality. The Ventura is made in 65amps’ factory in Los Angeles utilizing the same high-level materials and engineering experience as always.

The Ventura uses a 2-6V6 power section and front end utilizing 65amps’ most popular circuits, The Color channel of the London and the Bump Circuit of the SoHo. This allows the Ventura to create a rich palette of American and British tones all with the signature flair that has made 65amps a major presence on top-level tours and recording studios around the world.

All Red Line 65amps feature:
American-Made, High-Grade Transformers Made in Chicago – Using high-grade M6 steel and pure copper windings 65amps Redline transformers will deliver beautiful, clear vintage tone that is not available using non-US steel.

SoZo Capacitors – For the most musical and detailed response from your amplifier. SoZos are the most musical, consistent and complete sounding capacitors on the market. Made to the highest standards in the USA.

Aluminum Chassis – All of 65smps' chassis are made from high-grade aluminum here in Los Angeles. This quality of chassis is the best we’ve found for grounding quietly, shielding against 21st century RF sources that are everywhere, and the ruggedness required for working professionals.

Authentic Allen-Bradley Carbon Comp resistors where it counts – In the signal path of all 65amps are the best sounding resistors known: Allen-Bradley Carbon Comps. Renown for decades as the “magic” part required for getting “that” sound, the Allen-Bradley resistor is an unparalleled finishing touch for your tone. All other resistors are 1% tolerance mil-spec parts made in the Americas that ensure that your amp will always be performing at peak potential and always be safe.

FEATURES
  • 2x 6V6 power section 20 watts
  • Hybrid London Color channel and SoHo gain stage front end
  • 12AT7 Phase inverter Bump that works on both channels - 4 Voices
  • Passive FX Loop Master Voltage Knobs - Volume, Tone, Master Voltage
  • Switches - Manual Channel Switch & Manual Bump Switch
  • Footswitch - Dual button that controls channel and bump

      Comments about 65amps The Ventura 112 1x12 20W Tube Guitar Combo:

      This may be the perfect amp for clean Strat tones - sounds great from the lowest to the highest note and captures the chimeyness of Strats. (Sounds fine with my PRS as well, but not with the same great tone.) Straight up it sounds fine, but I'm running it through a Carbon Copy, a Carl Martin compressor and a Fat Boost (all set at low levels) to get more sustain - killer clean tones. I've had a bunch of Fenders and Boogies, all fine in their own right, but this thing blows them away. They use mil-spec components hand wired and this thing seems to be very carefully engineered and built; I'm not a techno geek on amp designs, but it works for me.

      Negatives - not much but: The manual says the foot switch input jack is on the back panel, but there is nothing on the back panel; the jack is under the downward facing chassis. (OK, so I'm an idiot, but it took me a while to find it.) The footswitch is not up to the rock solid build of the amp, a plastic thing, but it works. It's got two stomp switches, one for effects in or out and the othe for "bump" mode that dirties things up - but no LEDs. However, one can buy a third party foot switch for not too much coin that is well built and has LEDs. Customer support, from my experience, not good - called twice at around 2:00 PM Pacific time and no one picked up; one e-mail went unanswered. (My question was not exactly a life-or-death one, had to do with finding the foot swithch input jack.) However, others have had very good results with support.

      Overall: This is a pricey amp, and its price has been jacked significantly since introduced, but I'd say it's worth every penney. The current dealer network is pretty thin on the ground, but go out and give one a twirl - absolutely the best amp I've ever cranked up. Kudos!

          Comments about 65amps The Ventura 112 1x12 20W Tube Guitar Combo:

          Very well thought-out design. All 4 Gain/Tone structure stages are so usable. Great feel. Perfect amount of headroom for small to medium gigs. 3D sounding without Reverb. You can actually leave your board at home! I have owned many nice amps. This is one of the best.
