Cutting Edge Effort!!!

Comments about Rocktron VH160R Vendetta 160W Guitar Amp Head:

I was simply looking for an inexpensive head with tube warmth and cut through and then... Rocktron came out with this. The one thing I really like is the sound is truly original and friggin loud as needed, especially playing in a death metal band! The only thing I would look for extra with this amp is more extreme gain, like that of the metal planet distortion petal.. Great Job Rocktron.


Awesome amp!

Comments about Rocktron VH160R Vendetta 160W Guitar Amp Head:

I'm impressed with this amp. It's not very loud, but the sound is just so beautiful. One of the best distortion I ever had. Really sound like a tube one for a fraction of the price. The clean channel is also top notch. When I gig with it, some people come to ask me if it is a tube amp after my band's performance. A great cheap buy, if you want a high quality sound for gigs. Try it with a guitar with EMG's and a fixed bridge, you'll be blown away!


Great Value, Great Sound - A worthy purchase!

Comments about Rocktron VH160R Vendetta 160W Guitar Amp Head:

I discovered this amp because the studio where my band rehearses had it in one of the rooms. Being a tube amp fan, I was skeptical at first but having tried this amp out, I started leaving my (all tube) rack at home. Not because this sounds better but because of the convenience. This amp sounds good enough that I can leave my rack at home and get by with just this. Having tried several other full solid state amps (playing in other rooms/studios), I realized how awesome this particular one was and couldn't wait to get back to it. I would highly recommend this amp for gigging musicians who want a cost effective but pretty good sounding amp to use. The noise gate (which is fantastic) and the built-in tuner just make this a no-brainer in my book for this price. The controls on this amp are great and offer a lot of versatility to tailor your sound without getting complicated. One tip: Keep the gain setting low for the best crunch. Too much gain softens up the tone too much.


Changed my mind

Comments about Rocktron VH160R Vendetta 160W Guitar Amp Head:

Well! I have changed my mind. For over twenty years I have been solely a tube amp believer. I purchased this amp out of monetary restrictions shall we say as my british monster was in the shop with three hundred dollars worth of repair, then I had a twelve year old amp, you know the rest. Needed an amp for two four twelve speakers. With lots of power! I can not say that this has a whole lot of power but what I can say is WoW! Cranked up this baby is unmatched for tone, doesn't break up until you want it to. Combined with my Prophesy II good Lord. Stereo, tube pre-amp and pure tone. I am very pleased! It weighs as much as my British unit, and just as heavy in sound. Try this!!! the only thing you could hurt is your ears. And the paint on the walls. Unbelievable and very inexpensive what a great buy. I actually think another stack might show up on our stage. Good things come in pairs.....He He He!!!
