The Ampeg VH-140C Solid State Amplifier was a staple of the 1990's Hardcore and Death metal genres. Long since out of production, the VH (variable harmonic) line of amplifiers produced still sought after heavy distortion tones.

S&K pedals has taken the distortion channel directly from the VH amplifiers, pedalized it and powered it with a pedal board friendly 9v supply. Controls include: Level, High, UltraMid, Low and Gain.

The VHD can be run one of three ways.
1) into the front end of your amplifier like a typical distortion pedal
2) into the series effects loop return, bypassing the preamp
3) into a power amp or slave amp (i.e. a sunn concert slave)

**Please allow up to 14 days for shipment**

All housed in a powder coated Hammond 1590BBM enclosure with screen printed graphics.

Standard center-negative power supply, accepts 9V. CONNECTING A VOLTAGE HIGHER THAN 9vDC OR ANY AC VOLTAGE WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
