Ampeg Brings All-Tube Tone to Guitarists With New GVT Series Amps GVT debuts at Summer NAMM 2011
Nashville, TN – July 20, 2011 – Ampeg re-enters the world of premium guitar amplification with the announcement of the GVT Series Guitar Amps, due out this summer. Each head, cab and combo offers all-tube guitar tone in a sleek design inspired by classic Ampeg guitar amps from the ‘70s.
“Over the years, Ampeg guitar amps have delivered an alternative to the standard tones of the time,” remarks Ampeg’s Director of Amplification, Pyotr Belov. “The all-new GVT line is no different. It can easily handle a wide range of playing styles, but does so with pure Ampeg guitar tone that easily outshines the leading tube amps.”
The comprehensive line of Ampeg GVT Guitar Amps range from an ultra-compact 5-watt head, all the way up to a gig-friendly 50-watt, 2×12 combo. GVT heads and combos are all-tube by design, including 6V6 and 6L6 power tubes for unmistakable American feel and tone. The tonal palette is wide, featuring Ampeg’s legendary Baxandall EQ circuitry, which provides unmatched flexibility, allowing the guitarist a much wider range of tones than competitive amps. Both GVT extension cabinets feature Celestion® Vintage 30 speakers, while GVT combos use Celestion Original Series speaker designs, perfect for translating the feel of the all-tube GVT amplifiers. Plus, rugged build quality ensure years of use out on the road.
