Exellent value for the money

Hannu P., 09.10.2013
I am very pleased with this little amp. It seems to be very well made especially considering the low price. And the fact that it as being "Ultra" means it has already been customized is even more pleasing. Now I don't have to think for example how it would sound with 12 inch speaker 'cos it has been prefabricated with one (I'm subconciously comparing this to the original VHT Special 6 combo amp that comes with 10 inch speaker which I also have owned).
The controls in this amp are very powerfull but in the same time simple. You can get wide spectrum of sounds easily. It only takes a little time and patience. And different guitars played through this amp seem to keep their distinct own tone and character which is always a sign of a good amp. The footswitchable solo boost function is also one very useful feature. Many pricier amps still don't have it 'till this day.
The output sound is surprisingly loud considering the low wattage rating. I think this could easily be taken to gigs and be used as a main amp and personal monitoring amp. Of course it should be miked and put through the PA system to get heard in the audience but that's what you have to do likewise with many vintage amps that may have much higher wattage rating but lower level of output sound.
All in all this is one heck of an amplifier for the price and seems to be built to last a lifetime when handled prorerly.

Worth every penny!

10.03.2015
I have to say how much of a bargain this amp is at this price point. Its 6 watts of real tone! Before purchasing this combo I had a 40 watt all valve Line 6 amp. Which to be honest sounded no where near as good as this little beast!
Don't be fooled by it only being 6 watts as this goes very LOUD! I have played with a loud drummer and it just about kept up...u may want to mic it if playing in a larger venue with a drummer though.
One of the best features of this amp is the watts controller. It is very useful for getting those tubes driven hard but at neighbour friendly volumes! I live in a terraced house so I needed something that sounded ace but didnt annoy the neighbour.... and boy does it sound awesome...even at relatively low sound volumes.
Also the features Are excellent. The fx loop is very useful to put the modulation effects in to bypass the preamp section. And also the variety of speaker cabinets and ohm levels really make this amp a versatile little amp but with some really sweet tone.
Im 100% happy with this VHT and Thomann delivery to UK was very swift too.
I have had the amp about 18 months now and still the best value for what I want...an amp that is well built and sounds awesome at all sound levels. If you like blues to classic rock music and the warmth of a valve driven amp then this little thing is for you!!
3 year warranty with Thomann too...what else could you ask for?
Definately one of my best purchases which was half the price of my previous line 6 amp.
Just plugged in a Ehx Soul Food pedal into this amp and boy this thing screams!
Very happy customer! Just buy it!
