Tech 21 Introduces a 1000-Watt VT Bass Amp Head… The VT Bass 1000 head is a new offering from Tech 21’s Private Stock division. Weighing in at a mere 12 lbs., this 2-channel, 1000-Watt RMS head features a Class D power section. Lightweight and powerful with 2000 Watts peak output, pro players can pump out all the analog warmth of the SansAmp circuitry that was designed to recreate the distinctive tones of SVT-style bass stacks, without breaking your back.
Like its 300-Watt cousin, the VT Bass 1969, each channel allows players to easily dial in complex bass tones with a powerful three-band EQ section and a full-range Drive control. The unique Character control alters the entire sonic structure of each channel, moving seamlessly between decades of different voicings from the early ‘60s to classic “super valve” to thick flip-top funk, and from gnarly overdrive to industrial distortion.
Features include a +10dB Gain switch to enhance low output pickups and allow active pickups to drive the amp harder, a switchable SansAmp XLR Direct Output, Effects Loop, an independent buffered tuner output, and rackmount kit. The included footswitch changes channels, has a Mute switch to silently tune your bass, and can also engage both channels simultaneously via the Mix switch – effectively giving you a third channel. The footswitch utilizes any standard 1/4” instrument or speaker cable and accepts power from the amp. Optional 4×10 bass speaker cabinets with woven grill are available.
