VHD Distortion Preamp
$220.00 / Sold Out
THERE WILL BE 20 PEDALS AVAILABLE IN THIS RUN
The enclosure artwork had been updated for this run as the pcb layout has been improved.
The Ampeg VH-140C Solid State Amplifier was a staple of the 1990's Hardcore and Death metal genres. Long since out of production, the VH (variable harmonic) line of amplifiers produced still sought after heavy distortion tones.
S&K pedals has taken the distortion channel directly from the VH amplifiers, pedalized it and powered it with a pedal board friendly 9v(or 12v for more headroom) supply. Controls include: Level, High, (Ultra)Mid, Low and Gain.
The VHD can be run one of three ways.
1) into the front end of your amplifier like a typical distortion pedal
2) into the series effects loop return, bypassing the preamp
3) into a power amp or slave amp (i.e. a sunn concert slave)
*Pedals will be build as ordered. Please allow up to 6 weeks for shipment*
