Anyone using VHT?

Not the new crap Chinese VHT's, the originals. I just picked up a 1997 Pitbull 45 head. So far so good. Any advice on getting more gain is always helpful.

Re: Anyone using VHT?

Hey there,
you lucky guy, congrats, the PB 45 are amazing,
i'm using a Pittbull 45 2x10" Combo.

It's the best Amp i've ever owned, such a nice tone, especially the clean channel is said to be the best clean chan of all VHT (Fryette) Amps.

But i also agree, that it has limited amount of gain. I could have my PB modded by Frank Finkhäuser in Germany, i already contacted him, but i'm not sure yet.

I'm using a Tubescreamer in front of it, that gives me enough gain, but with Boost always enabled. It would be cool if i could use the boost just for soloing, but at the moment i have the sound of my dreams

If the Fryette guys could mod them, so they also have the lo-high gain switch of their current amp line, that would be really awesome...

Mine was surprisingly affordable, somewhere around $600 shipped. Not bad for a USA Made head.

I have a 2502 power amp, best one around IMO.

Nice!1 I am using a Marshall Powerbloc 9200 in my rack. Works great, but I would love to try the VHT.
