OVERVIEW

A pedal-friendly combo with switchable power.

The VHT Special 12/20RT adds tube-driven spring reverb and tube tremolo to the Special 12/20 platform. The 12/20RT features two power ranges with an adjustable Watts control plus a Pentode/Triode switch. The unique preamp is designed to excel with pedals and multi-effects units. It also features VHT's unique Depth and Texture controls, a convenient built-in 9-volt DC pedal power supply and an international voltage selector.

The VHT Special 12/20RT offers two output-power ranges; a special voltage range switch provides the proper voltages for 6V6 or EL84 output tubes (in 12-watt low-voltage/low-power mode). The high voltage 20-watt setting provides the ideal voltages for 6L6 or EL34 output tubes. The Special 12/20RT ships with a pair of 6V6 output tubes. In addition, the Special 12/20RT's variable Watts control can reduce the maximum output power to less than one watt for whisper-quiet volume levels.

The Special 12/20RT's preamp was designed to bring the most out of every effects pedal and multi-effects unit with enhanced clarity, detail and controlled tube compression. Its low-impedance buffered effects-loop send can effortlessly drive the most difficult pedals without tone or signal loss. Thanks to its variable send and return level controls, the 12/20RT's effects loop can accommodate a wide range of pedal or rack effects. The 12/20RT's Reverb, Tremolo, Depth and Texture controls are post effects loop, so multi-effects users can plug directly into the effect return and still benefit from the post-effects tube reverb and tremolo, while also fine-tuning the output stage characteristics with the Depth and Texture controls.

      Comments about VHT Special 12/20 RT 20W 1x12" Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      Fantastic tone, features and effects - especially for the price point. This amp provides a low gain, super warm and big tube tone platform that is ready to scream with an overdrive pedal. The tube driven reverb and tremolo effects are brilliant and very usable. The tonal effects and easy to dial in and provide a board range of possibilities. The stock tubes sound great, and I can get enough level (with a overdrive or gain pedal) on the 12 watt setting to get over a full rock band drum kit. I am a 25 year gigging (hobbyist) musician who plays hard rock, metal and blues. I have mostly played on Mesa maps.

      Great buy, and you won't be disappointed if you are looking for this concept of amp (low gain tube amp platform ready for your pedal array).
