What We Think

Super clean condition for super clean tones! We have a great relationship with Little Walter amps and we love whenever we get a new or used item from them in, especially when the used item is in immaculate shape with perfectly fitted slipcovers. 

Little Walter VG-50 heads are known for their unadorned clean tone with a little extra top end for a classic country tone. With the semi-open back 2x12, the incredible sound of the VG-50 opens up into an even more vibrant and warm tone monster. Throw an overdrive in front and careful choices with your volume and tone knobs you will have a setup so tonally versatile, you'd think you were playing 4 different amps.

Give us a call today because this is one phenomenal setup!

Manufacturer's Description from Little Walter

This amp was developed by working closely with Vince Gill to achieve the right clean tone while highlighting the upper register frequency that he is famous for. Like our original 50 watt chassis this model uses hand built, point-to-point construction, Hammond Transformers, top quality signal capacitors and octal pre-amp tubes but has a re-designed tone stack that allows you to achieve a bit more clean highs. This amp uses 6550 power tubes but can also use 6L6s.

The VG-50 model utilizes the same Preamp and Phase Inverter and rectifier tubes but due to a more powerful power transformer this amp can use 6550, KT88, or 6L6 power tubes. This amp also has a tone stack that was developed for Vince Gill’s touring rig. Vince asked for a bit more top end with his Tele’s so a new Volume, Bass Roll-Off, and Tone stack was created. The bass roll-off is in the very low frequency range while the tone pot allows for a bit more high frequency tone.

This amp is known for it's clean head room. It doesn't exhibit much breakup but gains a bit of “hair” in the upper volume range. The VG-50 offers more headroom than the standard 50W Model.

This amp was designed to provide a wide, fat, clean foundation for the musician to build on.

Little Walter Tube Amps

About Manufacturer

All the Little Walter Tube Amps use Octal Pre-amp tubes and are hand wired with no circuit, tag, or turret boards.  I believe the shortest signal path equates to the purest possible tone. These amps are all cathode biased and voiced to allow more low frequency tone to pass through the pre-amp. All my amps also have a direct line out that can be connected to your house PA or recording console.  These amps can be ordered with Tweed, Lacquered Tweed, Tolex, or Cherry, Maple, or Walnut hardwood (hardwood based on availability of wood).  I personally build these amps one at a time right here in North Carolina.
