A pedal-friendly amp with selectable power ranges.
The VHT Special 12/20 features increased power, a preamp designed to excel with effects and a built-in 9-volt DC pedal power supply. This handy head also features an all-tube buffered effects loop with send and return level controls, VHT's unique Depth and Texture controls and variable Watts control.
A handy voltage range switch provides the proper voltages for 6V6 or EL84 output tubes (in 12W low-voltage/low-power mode). The high-voltage 20W setting provides the ideal voltages for 6L6 or EL34 tubes. The Special 12/20 ships from the factory with a pair of 6V6 output tubes. The Special 12/20's variable Watts control can even reduce the maximum output power to less than 1W for whisper-quiet volume levels.
Enhanced clarity, detail and controlled tube compression helps you get the most out of your effects. Its low-impedance buffered effects loop send-with variable send level-can drive the most difficult pedals without tone or signal loss. Those seeking the shortest signal path to the output stage can plug their pedals or multi-effects units directly into to effects return jack-the 12/20's unique output stage Depth and Texture controls are post-effects loop, so the output stage characteristics can always be fine-tuned to accommodate a wide range of instruments, speakers, playing styles and environments.
