Benson Amps Vinny 1-Watt Head in Aunt Gertie Finish

SGD $1,160.00

This little one-watter is no toy. Christ spent several weeks on the design seeking a giant sound in a compact package equally at home in the living room and studio. Beautiful clean and driven sounds are achieved at conversational volumes. The Vinny head is the size of a six-pack of tallboys. The single volume control is also a tone control: Vinny starts out bright when the control is set low and clean and get darker as it is turned up and driven into compression, overdrive and eventually distortion. The killer feature of this tiny amp is an internal load and post-output transformer line-out. Vinny makes for a killer Preamp! Plugged into another amplifier, or even a recording console, real power tube drive sounds are available at any volume! Vinny's companion speaker cabinet is 1x10 Baltic Birch Ply loaded with a Jense C10R driver.
