Ampeg's all-new, all-tube GVT guitar amps received strong channel acceptance from dealers and distributors alike at the Musikmesse 2011 launch and Ampeg booked the series' inaugural order with Music Leader France.
"I have been very interested in this new range of GVT amps," remarked Philippe Perrin, Music Leader International. "I am really happy to see that one more time Ampeg has perfectly identified the needs of our market. Ampeg is much more than a bass amp manufacturer and these GVT amps bring the proof to those who need convincing."
"France is a strong market that is looking for great sounding, high-quality guitar amps and all the French dealers who tried them in Frankfurt were really impressed," said Thierry Philippe, LOUD's Sales Manager, France. "The 100-unit order from Music Leader is just the beginning."
The comprehensive line of Ampeg GVT Guitar Amps range from an ultra-compact 5-watt head, all the way up to a gig-friendly 50-watt, 2x12 combo. GVT heads and combos are all-tube by design, including 6V6 and 6L6 power tubes for unmistakable American feel and tone. The tonal palette is wide, featuring Ampeg's legendary Baxandall EQ circuitry, which provides unmatched flexibility, allowing the guitarist a much wider range of tones than competitive amps. Both GVT extension cabinets
feature Celestion(r) Vintage 30 speakers, while GVT combos use Celestion Original Series speaker designs, perfect for translating the feel of the all-tube GVT amplifiers. Plus, rugged build quality ensure years of use out on the road.
Available later this summer, the Ampeg GVT Series will launch with eight different models: the GVT5H and GVT15H heads, GVT112E and GVT112EW cabinets, plus the GVT5-110, GVT15-112, GVT52-112 and GVT52-212 combos. Ampeg GVT pricing is TBD at this time. For more detailed product information, please visit www.ampeg.com/GVT.
