VHT ST 50 HEAD Reviews
Overall it's a great amp. One of, if not the few 2 channel USA handmade amps that have both great cleans AND great distortion channels. I did buy it used and I think the price was right for what it's worth. You're getting a GREAT amp for the price! It's a shame they're discontinued, they were amazing.

Bought from Trevor Durrant Guitars, Colchester, England. I paid £1800 for the head and 2 x 12 Cab (Approx $2700), £1400 of wich was for the Head. I had been looking for a versatile amp - Good clean, blues, rock and metal tones - for ages. Having tried Marshal, Laney, Boogie, Peavey ect in head, combo and rack formats without finding the sounds I liked, I stumbled on this small dealer with only top quality geer(Boogie, Soldano, PRS etc). They were really cool and spent ages discussing my reqirements before suggesting a VHT. They said they were the only amp available in the UK to have both great clean and heavily overdriven tones. After ruling out their Ultra Lead and CLX models due to cost, I plugged into the ST head and started to play around.
Great versatile amp - little known in the UK. If you need great clean as well as driven tones. but cant afford a dual rec and a fender twin - Try a VHT, you will be amazed.Paul Mapplethorpe rated this unit on 2003-07-18.
