Peavey 6543+ Guitar Amplifier Head

It’s no secret that we’re fans of Peavey amps here at Gear-Vault. One of my personal favorite amps by Peavey is the XXX. It’s a mean sounding amp. Next in line, for me, is the 6505+ because it’s basically a 3-channel 5150 with much better sounding chimey cleans. I’m excited to see Peavey are active participants at the winter NAMM 2010 show. Peavey are happy to announce the all-new 6534+ Guitar Amplifier Head – the next evolution of the high-gain 6505 Series, which has defined the sounds of aggressive guitar music since 1991. Read more

VHT Standard 36 Hand-Wired Tube Head

June 19, 2009 by · 1 Comment 

VHT Standard 36 Hand-Wired Tube HeadGuitarists looking for great tone that works with any speaker setup would do well to consider the new VHT Standard 36 hand-wired tube head. The Standard 36 is crafted in VHT’s workshop outside of San Francisco where VHT’s team of experienced designers put their magic touches on every amp the company creates.

The Standard 36 uses three 12AX7 tubes in the preamp section and four EL84’s in the power amp section, along with a 5U4G rectifier. It has separate Tone and TMB channels with a master volume that controls both. The Standard produces complex tones with articulate highs and tight, focused lows with plenty of power on tap. The drive side maintains a lot of overtones along with enough mids and lows to create unique tones. The preamp and power amp are balanced and give out a cool combination of crunch and headroom. The amp is never harsh, has a great bottom, and cleans up very well with the guitars’ volume know, which is indicative of the way VHT wants their amps to work. Read more
