So I picked one of these up based on the really impressive feature set and tube options and could not be happier. After looking at all of the tweed deluxe kits and boutique 20 watters and owning BF Princeton Reverbs, Deluxe Reverbs, 50's tweed Pro and tweed Deluxe, Brown Vibrolux , Princeton, etc. this VHT does what all of those do and then some. The voicing is in the same ballpark as a classic Fender but the additional tone shaping addresses a lot of the issues I have always had with some of the tweed and brown era designs. Being able to run 6V6 for the more traditional Deluxe vibe is cool but running it with 6L6 takes the amp to a real giggable level with more headroom and low end capability without losing what is cool about the 6V6 tones. I've been so happy with the 6L6 that I have not even tried running it with EL34 yet, which is supposed to up the output a little more. My first impression of the "watts" control was that it was not very useful. However, I finally used it last night for lower level playing as it is intended and it is great. I think it is a type of power scaling and really gives you the feel of a cranked amp at very low volume. I had to force myself to stop playing last night at 1:30 am because I was able to get the feel out of the amp that I usually only get when practicing with it cranked. The depth and texture controls in addition to the tone control really allow you to dial the amp in exactly where it needs to be depending on volume and tube type etc. I've spent way more on amps and gotten way less than what this VHT delivers. The stock speaker is actually pretty good so I may not bother putting the Celestion Gold that I was planning on installing in it. I cannot recommend this amp enough for anybody who is considering a tweed deluxe or similar amp. I was prepared to drop the cash on a much more expensive amp after watching the Greg V. demos but really feel this VHT is giving me the same performance and then some. I cannot recommend this enough!
