Killer tube tone and power with endless flexibility at home and on stage.

The Acoustic® GT50H 50 Watt all-tube guitar amplifier head is for the musician who demands more from an amp. The GT50H offers a variety of tube-driven tones, from a warm, mellow clean to classic crunch to an insane overdrive — and everything in-between. Featuring both a Pentode and Triode mode, along with a half-power switch, the GT50H provides a wide range of output options from 12 to 50 watts while keeping its rich tone intact.

Tube complements include two 6L6GC power tubes for a balanced and versatile tone. The preamp consists of two tried-and-true 12AX7WB's and two ECC83S's for a smooth tone.

With multiple speaker outputs, the GT50H can power 4, 8 or 16 Ohm load cabinets and boasts an Accutronics® spring reverb and an effects loop. The included 4-button footswitch gives you total control on stage with Channel Switching, High Gain on/off, Reverb on/off and Lead Boost on/off.

      Comments about Acoustic GT50H 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I bought this amp because I liked the sound of the DSP120 which I bought. As soon as I saw this I had to have it. I bought the amp with the Celestion 4-12ac cabinet. I love the sound from shimmering treble to raunchy hard rock. As it is a tube amp, it is the real deal not just fuzzy like a solid state sound. I have always bought Vox amps but this one sounds better. I use it as my regular set-up. Everyone who hears it is amazed at the tone and clarity. I hope they continue to build these as they are truly winners.

      Comments about Acoustic GT50H 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      This amp sounds amazing. I have all but retired by fender reverb pedal because the reverb unit in this amp sounds so clear and natural. All in all, it's a joy to play with. Mine had a loose wire that needed to be fixed, but I bought it used, so I can't fault the amp for that.

      Be advised however, Acoustic does NOT want you to open this amp up. Changing tubes without taking it to "A certified technician" can void your warranty. Considering that changing tubes is second nature to almost every owner of a tube amp, this is kind of a pain.

        Comments about Acoustic GT50H 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        This is an awesome tube head! to start, 50 watts instead of 100. fantastic! tubes can run. It is a full size head though. fits on top of 412 cab properly. I own the egnater rebel, and this thing is even more adjustable! playing thru a cannabis rex single 12 you can set drive at 1 and 1/4 pound and sound like any old fender tube amp by setting triode mode. turn it to pentode, you get marshall! hit the bright switch, you are playing thru celestions! Hit the 1/2 power switch, you got your blue voodoo! The foot pedal? Fan tastic! Both channels play thru the same tone controls and you can't turn any of them so far that it sounds bad! set your tone on clean, set your drive to just barely crunch, I set the adjutable boost switch all the way up, this gives you a 1/3 boost above the high gain switch or normal. High gain adds a tube in line and will crunch the clean channel too! Then add boost for more. For a solo! Remember gain on 1 and 1/4? Try turning it up! 4 preamp tubes + 2 output tubes. Instant 5150 EVH, PLUS!! and still controllable, stick the guitar in it's face. Oh, yeah! Spring reverb too! Master volume lets the whole front end run and you get to keep your ears! Get this! 15% off on a sale, and this thing is 495 !!! Use absolutely ANY speaker set up and you can still adjust it to sound like whatever big name rig you want. I own a V-4B, a Blue Voodoo, Egnater Rebel, multiple Fenders. If I could give it a 10 stars rating, I would!

        Comments about Acoustic GT50H 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I have been searching for a new amp for awhile and have tried just about everything in this price range. The gt50h beat them all hands down! I tried the blackstar, jet city, none of them have the features this amp has if gigging, the tone is better. Nice fenderish cleans with just a hint of breakup when dimed. The clean channel is really loud with plenty of bottom end and clarity. The O.D. channel can take you from bluesy grit to full on saturated scooped metal. You would want a pedal for the death metal type stuff but I promise this amp will do it! Dont be fooled by the looks! The amp almost works as a 3 channel. There is a switch for the O.D. channel that steps up the gain from a warm crunch to the high gain and its footswitchable! Lead boost with level adjustment. this is really effective as well and adds alot of punch to your lead passages to cut through the mix. Effects loop with level adjustment. only gripe here is no ability to switch on and off with footswitch. Not a deal breaker though. Amp takes pedals very well. The reverb is a bit strong and it really takes off with the knob above 3. It is a nice sounding verb though. It has a bright switch but I dont see the need. the high end just sparkles and I dont think I have the treble past 12 oclock. This amp is super quiet even with single coils! I stood 5' in front of it with the o.d. cranked and had a very controllable feedback. No hum either!
        I could go on about this amp but I will leave it to you to make the leap. Acoustic has really raised the bar on the amp market. im not sure if these are designed here and manufactured somewheres else but it does say the company is american and located in cali. sweet!
        I do electrical repair work and I can tell you the build quality is there and I expect this amp to last along time. They give you a 3 year warranty on it so they are backing up theyre products. If you are looking for a great sounding tube amp with versatility, gig worthiness, and a great price then look no further acoustic has you covered!

          Comments about Acoustic GT50H 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          the most versatile amp out there,,, comes with a four button footswitch that controls switching between high and low gain channels 1 and 2 REVERB ON/OFF!!! and boost with pots on the back for controlling your boost level and you effects loop level... and a bunch of tubes inside giving it the tone of any amp twice its price switchable power settings ranging from 12.5 watts to 50 watts and enough speaker jack for ANY combination of cabinets and this thing has boat loads of tone i got it home and in under five minutes had a perfect fender clean tone and without the use of a single stomp box i can switch to the heaviest of metal and before you ask because i know you're gonna the over drive is the most articulate clarity of any amp i could have ever dreamed of owning... BUY!!! THIS!!! AMP!!!
