The Special 6 Ultra's added gain stage provides plenty of overdrive for searing leads, bone-crushing crunch, and gristly grind, while its amazingly effective variable Watts control can reduce the volume to whisper-quiet bedroom practice levels while maintaining the same overdriven tone, texture and dynamic feel.

The Special 6 Ultra features the same unique Volume and Tone controls as the original Special 6, the same footswitchable Boost, High/Low Power switch, and a similarly mod-friendly eyelet board. In addition, the Special 6 Ultra from VHT features a unique multi-position Depth control that fine-tunes the low-frequency depth; this feature allows you to carefully voice the amp's low-end to perfectly suit a wide range of guitars, pickups, speakers, and musical styles.

The Special 6 Ultra ships with a 6V6 output tube for sweet clean and rich overdrive tones, and to accommodate tone-seeking experimenters, it can accept a wide range of alternate output tubes as well. The VHT Special 6 Ultra amp head also features an all-tube buffered effects loop.

Overall Rating
Playability and Feel
Better than expected
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Only had this amp about a month but so far it seems well built and should last.
How has it stood up over time?
For one month its been very reliable. No issues.
Your general opinion of this product.
The variety of tones is amazing I actually like the clean channel. The Ultra channel is ok but for Rock and blues that I play the clean with pedals and the built in boost is great.The cleans are fenderish, which I like. The amp is plenty loud enough for me.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
I like controls on top, they are hard to see when sitting, but it's worth the sacrifice for this amp.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tones are amazing, lots of variety. I use the head with a Jet City cab with 12 inch eminence speaker and they seem great together.I've read other reviews that say this is a better setup than the VHT chromeback speaker.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The covering and white piping look great and seem really durable.
How was the action out of the box?
This amp sounded great right out of the box.
