The V22 gives you everything that antique amps deliver—without the bloated price tags. Don’t be fooled, though; this amp packs a special feature that makes it so much more than a tribute to the early days of guitar amplification. To explain, we must take a quick step back in time…Before greasy juvenile delinquents hijacked the blues, guitar amps generally came in two species: those with triode (having three active electrodes) power valves and those with pentode (containing five active electrodes) power valves. Triode valves, which came before pentodes, provide what a lot of guitarists describe as a “gentler” tone. Pentodes, on the other hand, are decidedly more “in-your-face.” The V22 is built for power pentode tubes, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a singular pentode personality. This amp includes a Mode switch, allowing you to operate the power section as if it had triode tubes (at roughly 40 percent less power). So what’ll it be today—old-school or oldest-school?
