This Versatile 5-watt Amp Is Perfect for RecordingAmpeg's GVT5H guitar amplifier head gives you the look and style of Ampeg's classic '70s VT series amps in a 5-watt format that's perfect for small gigs and recording. Don't let the 5-watt power rating fool you, this amplifier puts out plenty volume. So much, in fact, that Ampeg equipped it with a dual-mode switch, so you can cut the power down to 2.5 watts for recording. What's more, Ampeg gave it a super-smooth 2-band Baxandall-style EQ, so you can sculpt your GVT5H's tone to perfection.
Ampeg GVT5H Guitar Amplifier Head at a Glance:
The perfect-size amp for recording and more
Why suffer pint-sized tone from a 5-watt amp? When you want an amp that sound huge at a less-than-epic volume, you can count on the Ampeg GVT5H. Although the GVT5H is perfect for recording, it's great live too. Instead of blowing away smaller audiences with 30 or even 15 watts of tube tone, the GVT5H lets you get the breakup and saturation you need, at a volume that better suited for bars and clubs than arenas.
Dual-mode power switch adds extra versatility
Ampeg's GVT5H guitar amplifier head is built to give you a wide range of tone and plenty of output. But for small venues and recording, 15 watts may be a bit too much. No problem! Just flip the dual-mode switch and drop the GVT5H down to 7.5-watts. At half the output, the GVT5H 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 GVT5H guitar amplifier head this kind of EQ curve, they knew what they were doing. When you start tweaking the GVT5H's EQ, you'll be blown away by the truly massive range of great tone you can get out of this amplifier!
