Low wattage through minimal EQ and a small speaker can equal awesome tone when dimed. That’s why the small tube amp is a long time secret weapon of toneful guitarists and wily producers to getting big, cranked-to-the-max tube tones down on tape.
Our new V5 Class A combo features a single EL84 output tube producing 5 watts through a single 10" speaker. You won’t find a tube circuit much simpler than that, and it gives you the sweet, pure cleans and warm, crunchy overdrive that can only come from tubes. Simple volume and tone controls give you the widest range of sounds you can find on a practice/recording amplifier.
