VHT I-Series I-16

VHT I-Series I-16 Review

This is simply a great practice amp, and represents amazing value.

With 16W of power, it is more than powerful enough for practice sessions, and some people we talked to for this review reported that they had even used it for small gigs!

The focus here is on integrating a real tube tone with the latest technology. The amp will easily combine with your favorite amp modeling software, and then add warm, bright tube amplification. As a result, it sounds great – there is no beating the combination of flexibility and vintage sound that this amp offers.

This is because the amp offers dedicated circuitry which actually enhances the tones produced by your favorite modeling software, adding a gorgeous analog sound to digitally enhanced effects. This is a really innovative feature, which we think will be standard within a few years, so if you want to stay one step ahead of your band mates, then get this amp!

In addition, is has these great features:

PROS
  • The small size of this amp makes it perfect for practice sessions. You can easily chuck it into your truck, and carry it around all day, without your back complaining. Whilst you may want a bit more power to play stadium shows, adding this amp to your collection will really pay dividends!
  • Sometimes, even the best modeling software can sound a but synthetic. There is nothing worse than carefully designing a sound on garage band, only to hear it destroyed when you project it at proper volume. There is no such worry with this amp, which adds a classic all-tube amplification to your effects!
  • For beginners, who are just starting to learn how to set up an amp, this one is perfect. Small enough to be carried around easily, yet still delivering a powerful sound, the effect options are also just complicated enough to provide a huge range of effects without confusing the amateur!
  • The build quality of this amp also makes it stand out from the competition. VHT have built an excellent reputation amongst gigging musicians, who value the fact that their larger amps will put up with even the longest tours. This amp replicates that great quality in a small device, and we are sure that it will provide years of reliable service.
CONS
  • None, for the price. If you are looking for a gorgeous sounding practice amp that will give years and years of service, this is the one to go for.
