VHT rocking NAMM 2011 with some cool new products!

Thursday, January 6, 2011| by Will Chen

Well, just got some confirmation on some very cool new products from VHT hitting 2011 NAMM show. They're really expanding with a line of speaker cabinets and a very cool EL84 to 6V6 adaptor (with an extremely affordable street price under $20). however two products really caught my attention.

VHT is expanding into the pedal market with the V-Drive. On paper, this thing sounds very impressive...a bit of a tweakers dream. It features an 11 position switch to select 10 different clipping diode configurations (or no clipping diodes) and a voltage multipling circuit which they claim offers "a tighter, punchier, crisper, quicker responding and more authoritative tone". Fingers crossed! 

And the pièce de résistance, following on the success of the Special 6 VHT is launching the Special 6 Ultra in head and 1 X 12" combo versions. All of the features of the Special 6 are included plus an additional overdrive stage (hence the Ultra), unique texture and depth controls, and a variable Watts control promising cranked up tone at bedroom volumes. I can't wait to get my hands on this one!
