An amp that lets you experience pure simplicity, total control, and excellent note articulation with chordal clarity

There is really nothing like the sound of a maxed-out 50-watt amp&hellip the Fryette Pittbull Fifty/CL Tube Amp Head sounds great at all volume settings and especially loves to be cranked hard. With two highly flexible channels, "Red" & "Green", that are similarly configured but voiced slightly differently for a wide palate of pristine clean, slightly dirty clean, spanking crunch, and harmonically rich overdrive. Gain Stacking activates an additional 12AX7 gain stage for each channel. The Fryette Pitbull CL lets you silently switch from classic crunch sounds to blazing overdrive. Running the Fifty/CL with medium gain settings and a wide-open master volume produces a fat creamy crunch with shifting harmonic overtones that makes it feel like it is playing itself.

Fryette's exclusive Enhance Mode power supply technology puts tube or solid state rectification at your fingertips and is assignable to channels for expressive power amp performance on demand. The amp head's footswitchable Boost Mode puts two gain modes per channel under instant access. A Six-Band Graphic EQ adds unlimited tone sculpting potential and can be operated manually, by footswitch or assigned to a selected channel. Simplicity and unlimited expression only begins to describe the Fryette Pittbull amplifier.

Great amp if you don't need clean cleans!

Comments about Fryette Pittbull Fifty/CL 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I own the VHT branded Pittbull 50/CL, mine has the Graphic EQ and reverb options. This is a fantastic amp - great for rock, metal, any sort of hi-gain tones.There is no true "clean" channel on this amp - you basically get 2 boostable JCM 800s, with Super Lead and Super Bass voicings, but they're VHT sounding - very clear distortion, no fizz, no mess, no fuss - just pure, crisp, high gain sonic nirvana.I play a variety of USA guitars - Jackson, PRS, Gibson, Hamer - all sound great through the Pittbull!
