|Launched at Musikmesse 2011, Frankfurt, Germany, the GVT Series guitar amplifiers make their Winter NAMM debut in January 2012 at the company's showroom upstairs in Demo Room 209A/B. Each head, cabinet and combo offers all-tube guitar tone in a sleek design inspired by classic Ampeg guitar amps from the 70s. The GVT Series already were showcased in the US at Summer NAMM 2011.
The comprehensive line of Ampeg GVT Guitar Amps range from a compact 5-watt head, all the way up to a 50 Watt, 2x12 combo. GVT heads and combos are all-tube by design, including 6V6 and 6L6 power tubes for American feel and tone. The tonal palette is wide, featuring Ampeg's legendary Baxandall EQ circuitry, which provides high flexibility. 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. Rugged build quality ensure years of use out on the road.
The Ampeg GVT series comprises eight different models: the GVT5H and GVT15H heads, GVT112E and GVT112EW cabinets, plus the GVT5-110, GVT15-112, GVT52-112 and GVT52-212 combos.
"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."
Ahead of Musikmesse Frankfurt 2013, the GVT15H has been nominated for the prestigious MIPA, Musikmesse International Preass Award. Winners will be announced during Musikmesse 2013.
