The younger brother of the famed V18 now in a lite version. A single channel version of the identical V18, precisely the AC15-ish EF86 pentode channel with the same: CUT – CONTOUR – GAIN TONE & VOLUME controls. Brings back the much sought after chimey, yet beefy rich tone of the late ’60’s era. Match it with a 2×12″ Gabriel cabinet with a Celestion AlNiCo Blue and a greenback and you have a killer weapon in your arsenal!
Powered by 2x EL84 tubes
Characteristic to Class AB amplifiers, the dual EL84 tubes deliver the much coveted overdrive which is distinct from the “hi-gain” amps that have it formed in the preamp tubes instead. The result is a pure, mud-free overdrive with rich overtones that get fatter with every notch on the volume dial..
Happy V18 LC Users

Please note that these clips do not and cannot represent the amp’s tone accurately since there are so many variables that affect the recorded tone from the speaker cabinet to your computer speakers. These are here only to give you a hint of what the amp actually sounds like.
