Okay, I got this guy in a trade for my Science Amplifiers Hellhawk 50 watt. I've previously had a Science Decononizer as well. Both as heavily Marshall based (JCM/JVM and SLO). I loved them both and think they're work is amazing but I had an offer for this VHT and it being a bucket list amp I could not say no. I got it in this afternoon and I must say it is a BEAST of an amp!! I know they're dry amps but I wasn't expecting it to be THIS dry. It's a nice change, you have to put a lot more work into your picking and being a clean player but you get rewarded oh so handsomely! I love having the options of having either channel be clean or high gain, I have my HX stomp running in 4CM and it is killer. Such a versatile and dynamic setup. I'll need to get some recordings or at least a video up to show it off. I struggled to find a good metal demo on youtube, maybe I didn't look hard enough! I can't wait for my Instrumental STFY3-7 to show up for my RGD. Ethan was saying they're a killer combo together! It's been refinished with white tolex that isn't really sticking on the edges and in the back anymore, I think I'm going to pull it off and finish it purple to match my Emperor 2x12 (Yes I'm a sucker for purple!). I'm glad I switched, the difference in gain from my old Science amps is amazing, it is such a thick, cutting tone and the attack on the low notes is so fast. It doesn't need a boost to be tight at all!
