The VHT Special 6 amplifier, both the combo and the head version, use 1 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valve and 1 x 6V6S power valve/power tube.
Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding better than ever.
We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune. Remember, JJ is one of only five manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.
So restore the tone, the power and the sparkle to your guitar amplifier. Treat yourself to a brand new set of valves today.

Hand-wired boutique-quality tube amplifiers are usually beyond the reach of most guitarists. However VHT are breaking the mold.
You can now grab yourself a hand-wired amp like the Special 6 at a surprisingly low price.
This high quality built all-tube combo amp is designed for smaller venues and recording although micing it into the PA extends the scope considerably. It has a 6W amplifier section that drives a 10″ speaker.
At the core of the amp is a single ECC83/12AX7 preamp tube and one 6V6 output tube. Simplicity is the name of the game leaving you to concentrate on the important stuff – not endlessly fiddling with the knobs. It comes with only 2-knobs: one for tone and the other for volume. In addition, VHT has added a boost channel which can be accessed by simply pulling the volume knob.
