Ok so I go to local guitar center and see the VHT pitbull. Its was 100w, the guy said it was the "classic". Since its discontinued I cant find any info about it. Hoping you guys can help. How much did these things go for new? It sounded rediculous.

Can anyone provide any details about this head????

I am trying to trade my 6505+ for it

I told the guy straight up, they sell 6505 for 1079 new, the VHT was like 1140 Used.

I dont expect an even swap, but i dont want to spend alot of money. I know these guitar center noobs can get stuff for 5% over cost, so Im gonna try to swindle him.


What do you all think??? Id be stupid not to right??

Im going there this weekend, in hopes its still there. Going to bring my head, my guitar and compare the 2 and see what he will give me for the peavey.

yeah, do it. I'm not sure if I've tried that exact model, but the vhts i have tried were a step above the 5150/6505. The 5150/6505 is good, the vht is very good (if not great).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

yea, it sounded amazing. Just straight through the VHT cab. sounded better than my 6505 with all my rack gear into my cab..

It was at room level, when I go back im going to run it at 4 or 5, and do the same with the peavey and see whats up..

But does anyone know any specs on the VHT???

What tubes?? what options???

i'm guessing you've already tried the fryette website? is there a vht/fryette specific forum? (there's bound to be, but i could be wrong) they'd probably know better than us...

bump....

Anyone got specs on this head????

differences between cl, clx, ul???
Reverbnation.com/offthewitness
#13
it's the 100 cl
powered by 4 el34s
4 stage gain.
the cl is the least gain out of the pittbull series but it's still got quite a lot.
i'd take it over the 6505 in a second.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

Totally do that

VHT has changed its name to fryette, and the amp he's referring to is this one
http://www.sfdamp.com/pittbull_cl.html
This!!

And I think it's an awesome swap if you're finding yourself trapped in "6505 world", where everything is fizzy at low volumes and everything is wouphy at high volumes.

The VHT also wupps ANY Peavey I've ever played in terms of clean tones. They're very straight and dry, but that makes your playing super-subtle and super-sensitive.

I think it has a better range of gain, too.
#16
i'm a firm believer in fryette.

are you in missouri?

you should trade it in now. because I'm going to buy it. you've been warned.

I wouldn't make that trade. Play the VHT first.

I played the pitbull cl100 and it didn't rape the 6505. I liked my bugera more.

Make sure you want it before you trade, play it alot.

^ hey, it's more br00tl with a graphic eq. in fact, I don't think you can get br00tzls without a graphic eq. and a b00st, of course.

What do you mean, "best Fryette/VHT"?

Obviously most people - probably including Mr. Fryette himself - will say that the Ultra Lead or the Pitbull Classic Deluxe are the best since they're the most expensive. But seeing as I haven't played them and have only played the Deliverance, the Sig:X and the discontinued VHT Pitbull 50 combo, I'd say that the Sig:X is the best value for money. But only if you're actually interested in that many channels and tweak-able parameters.

It has the better clean tone, more ripping lead tone and is incredibly versatile; one of the most versatile I've ever played, period.
#25
Well i did play it, and was blown away. Im going to bring my peavey in and really compare the two.

I like eq. I have a 215 wich I love, and wouldnt go without. Just didnt know how much of a difference the VHT 5 band would make, since I have a 215.

I dont really need versitile. I play death metal Primarily. Just want brutal tone. I do like a nice clean tone however. But Im only considering this trade. Not sure if im ready to drop 3k on a head. If I did id get an ENGL Savage 120.

Just was curious about what people thought about the differences, Kind of off topic but thanks for the info on clean tone.

Fair enough.

Frankly, the Pitbull isn't the most ideal Death Metal amp. It's too sensitive and "dry". But that's just my opinion. If you loved it, sorted!

funny, that's how i feel about the vhts i've heard, not that they're bad, but they have a very specific sound

i'm just kidddingz.


The cl has the least gain out of all the vhts, is voiced a little bit less modern.
the clx is a all handbuilt version of the cl. Both the cl and the clx run el34s.

The ultralead has more gain but other then that it's a cl with kt88s and a more modern drier/tighter voicing.

The sig/x and the deliverance are two approaches to the same idea.

The sig/x is a give the user every damn option possible
the deliverance is the simpliest path from guitar to speaker

the deliverance is loud.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer
#31
I didn't realize the Classic was the same as the CL... hmm.

In that case, definitely do it, the 50 and 100/CLs I've played were probably my favorite VHTs besides the Sig:X, plenty of gain for anything you could possibly need it for
