Ampeg GVT52-212 Combo Guitar Amplifier at a Glance:
Double the channels, double the tone
To give you twice the GVT tone, Ampeg gave the GVT52-212 two independent channels. Channel 1 lets you dial in anything from glassy clean tone to classic rock crunch. Take your tone even farther, with the GVT53-212's second channel, which ranges from mild breakup to total saturated overdrive - perfect for soaring leads!
Dual-mode power switch adds extra versatility
Ampeg's GVT52-212 combo guitar amplifier is built to give you a wide range of tone and plenty of output. But for smaller venues and rehearsal, 50 watts may be a bit too much. No problem! Just flip the dual-mode switch and drop the GVT52-212 down to 25-watts. At half the output, the GVT52-212 delivers all of the tone and drive you crave, at the volume you need.
Baxandall EQ circuitry provides total tone control
Here's something you just don't see on a guitar amplifier: Baxandall EQ curves. This style of EQ curve was a big hit among music producers, because it boosts and cuts frequencies in a smoother, more effective way than traditional EQ curves. When Ampeg decided to give the GVT52-212 combo guitar amplifier this kind of EQ curve, they knew what they were doing. When you start tweaking the GVT52-212's EQ, you'll be blown away by the truly massive range of great tone you can get out of this amplifier!

Very nice amp!
by Andrew from Polson,mtGreat tone for my leads(a/b'd with a vox ac15c2, which I use for my cleans). Very versatile. 2x12s gives a really full, rich sound. Sounds amazing when the tubes are pushed to break up. Ch. 2's distor... read more [+]tion sounds pretty good, but I prefer to keep it on ch. 1 and use my route 66 and fulltone full drive OD pedals. This amp takes pedals very very well. Love the FX loop. The only things I would change are: 1) the speakers(celestion 70/80s dont sound too good in open back cabs or combos) but after many hours cranked up they have actually broken in and sound ok. I still want to put a lead80 and a V30 in. 2) change the grill cloth to the vintage reverberocket blue style. The boost works and sounds great but since I can't change the output I just stick with my mxr micro amp. 1/2 power sounds great, no tone loss whatsoever. Amp sounds great live. It compliments my ac15 perfectly when I gig. I really wasn't expecting to love this amp as much as I do. The bax eq is great, a little touchy but I dialed in my sound pretty easily. Even though this isn't a USA made product, ampeg makes a great product and I'm excited to see with what they come out with next close [-]

The Ampeg GVT series of guitar amps really add a new color of sound to the guitar world. Imagine a tone that is in between the Marshall crunch and Fender twang. The GVT punches you in the face with the power behind the amp, the Bax EQ sculpts the already amazing tone to your desire, and the speakers just finish the entire sound off with the exact feel and vibe you need. This is an amp that really lets you feel your music. If you're looking for a product with truly perfect tone, look no further than the Ampeg GVT series of amps.
