Here’s a famous blast from the past, a HH Electronics V-S Musician 100watt solid-state head built in Cambridge in the 70s. This iconic 70’s amplifier was used by many punk rock groups, pub bands, and cover bands but the amps also found their way onto big stages. Marc Bolan, Steve Hackett, even Yes used them.
The HH V-S ( ‘valve sound’) amps were 100 watt models into four ohms and 80 W into 8 ohms. It plays really loud with a super low end.
Bass sounds need a bit of grit and distortion to be heard and there is a gain knob and/or a Valve Sound switch to give you just that. The tone shaping is also versatile with bass, middle, treble and presence controls. Should you want a touch of chorus, compression, or other bass enhancements you can plug your pedals into the FX loop. There’s also an output to drive another power amp which is how they played bigger gigs back then.
The amplifier is built like a tank so has survived the years, although the knobs have cosmetic wear to the finish.
