Little Walter VG-50 Tweed Amplifier Head
The clean tone that made Little Walter famous!
If you want to know what your guitar eally sounds like, plug into a Little Walter !!!
The VG (Vince Gill)50 is built from the same platform as Phil's 50 but with the addition of the Bass Roll off for even more flexibility.
What we think:
Sweet and Round tone for days. Great body and depth with rich harmonic content.Depth and character in every note you play. She takes pedals great but yoiu will find yourself not wanting to cover up the pure tone coming from just your guitar and the VG50 ....
This amp was developed by working closely with Vince Gill to achieve the right clean tone while highlighting the upper register frequency that he is famous for. Like our original 50 watt chassis this model uses hand built, point-to-point construction, Hammond Transformers, top quality signal capacitors and octal pre-amp tubes but has a re-designed tone stack that allows you to achieve a bit more clean highs. This amp uses 6550 power tubes but can also use 6L6s.
The VG-50 model utilizes the same Preamp and Phase Inverter and rectifier tubes but due to a more powerful power transformer this amp can use 6550, KT88, or 6L6 power tubes. This amp also has a tone stack that was developed for Vince Gill’s touring rig. Vince asked for a bit more top end with his Tele’s so a new Volume, Bass Roll-Off, and Tone stack was created. The bass roll-off is in the very low frequency range while the tone pot allows for a bit more high frequency tone.
This amp is known for it's clean head room. It doesn't exhibit much breakup but gains a bit of “hair” in the upper volume range. The VG-50 offers more headroom than the standard 50W Model.
This amp was designed to provide a wide, fat, clean foundation for the musician to build on.
