Building on our original and inspired V55HD amp design, the impressively full-featured and hand-built, 55-Watt, 2-Channel VINTAGE V55HD INFINIUM tube amplifier head not only exudes vintage sound and style, but possesses modern features that will launch your tone into the sonic stratosphere.
Loaded with 3 x 12AX7 preamp and 2 x 6L6 power tubes, this incredible boutique-style powerhouse gives you the flexibility of two independent channels and selectable reverb, both switchable via the included heavy duty footswitch. Add to this our revolutionary INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology, and the VINTAGE V55HD INFINIUM becomes one extraordinarily versatile tone-machine that is ideally-suited for the studio, stage, practice room and concert hall!
The VINTAGE V55HD INFINIUM features true Class-A technology with a 3 x 12AX7 front-end and 2 x 6L6 tube power stage. A masterfully crafted all-tube amplifier head, the V55HD provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up you’ve come to appreciate from those treasured vintage amplifiers of yesteryear.
The hand-selected 12AX7 preamp tubes in VINTAGE V55HD INFINIUM’s classic ‘60s-era preamp provide everything from sweetly-purring blues to mind-blowing crunch. The mighty 6L6 power tube is known for its crisp and driving tonal quality when pushed to the max, and the V55HD harnesses every ounce of that power to awesome effect.
Years in the making, our INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology can extend the usable lifespan of your amplifier’s expensive power valves by up to 20 times, saving you huge money and ensuring the integrity of your tone. How? This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load.
INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new – even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM Series amps “4-wheel drive” for your guitar.
INFINIUM Series amps take all the guesswork out of tube replacement by illuminating an LED next to a tube that is reaching the end of its usable lifespan. And thanks to INFINIUM’s Auto-Bias design, you simply replace the indicated tube – without a trip to the repair shop, saving you even more money.
Adding to its impressive list of tone-shaping options, the VINTAGE V55HD INFINIUM’s high-definition Reverb puts the perfect finishing touch to your signature sound. Adjustable via the dedicated control on the front panel, you can finally achieve any sound you desire – from a subtle touch to the cavernous, natural-sounding reverberation of a large arena.
