1970s Ampeg VT-40


The Ampeg VT-40 is a 60 watt amp that was produced throughout the 70s. Like all Ampeg V series amps, it is very loud but can sound good at lower volumes due to all of the tone shaping possibilities provided by the rocker switches and the midrange control. The manual provided at the time even included settings on how to make the amp sound like a Fender or Marshall.
