Seek Deliverance with VHT's New Single-Channel Amp
January 20, 2005
Deliverance is VHT's all new, all tube, single-channel guitar amplifier line, consisting of the Deliverance KT120H Head, KT60H Head, KT60C 2X12 Combo, K412-P50E Guitar Cabinet and K212-P50E Guitar Cabinet.
With a simple, straightforward preamp architecture and a push-button free control panel the Deliverance series represents a major departure from the long running Pittbull line of full-featured multi-channel amplifiers. What remains is pure VHT soul.
Absolute simplicity is at the heart of the Deliverance concept. "I'm inspired by guitar music, and I thrive on the element of surprise that occurs when a player discovers there is a lot more going on than that which initially meets the eye", states VHT founder and designer Steve Fryette. "And as stomp boxes become increasingly important sound sculpting tools, players will find Deliverance amps to be pedal friendly and ultra-responsive."
The Deliverance front panel features include Input, Gain I/Voicing, Gain II/Overdrive, Master Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Presence and Depth controls, as well as a Standby switch and the VHT signature emerald green Mains Power switch. A single mini-toggle switch offers "Less" or "More" gain. This switch actually selects three stages or four stages of preamp gain depending on the amount of overdrive required. The rear panel includes two Speaker Outputs, a three-positionImpedance Selector switch, AC Input and Ground Switch.
The Deliverance KT60H and KT60C tube complements include four 12AX7 preamp tubes and a pair of KT88s for an output power rating of 60Watts RMS. The KT120H tube complement includes four 12AX7 preamp tubes, one 12AT7 preamp tube and a quartet of KT88s for an output power rating of 120Watts RMS.
