VHT Pittbull 45
Country, Jazz and Blues styles all share common roots and express a purity of form that demands a special kind of amplifier. So when VHT set out to design an amp for traditional players, they knew they would have to do more than hang a "Blues" tag or stick a nifty new switch onto an existing design. It would take ingenuity and uncommon commitment. With that philosophy in mind (and unrelenting input from local players with the ears and chops to back it up), they went to work. The result is an amp that was chosen as the winner of Guitar Player magazine's 50 Watt Shoot out in the mid priced amp catagory.
"The VHT Pittbull¨ Forty-Five easily gobbled the middle zone gold. This pint-sized predator's gnarly and inspired blues-rock tones simply chewed up most of its competition -- including some in the top-buck category."
With its Tube Rectifier, meticulously dialed head room, and lush reverb, the Forty-Five does equal justice to stock single coil pickups as well as vintage humbuckers.
The Pitbull 45 has it all: 2 channels with independent EQ, mode and boost switches; Class A or AB mode; Effects loop with series or parallel modes, mix control and footswitchable bypass; full-featured footswitch, and more. This is the amp that will make you fall in love with playing all over again.
