The VHT Special 12/20 features two power ranges), a preamp specifically designed for pedals and multi-effects units, an all-tube buffered effects loop with send and return level controls, VHT’s Depth and Texture controls, a variable Watts control, and a built-in 9-volt DC pedal power supply.

The VHT Special 12/20 offers two output-power ranges; located behind the rear panel, a special voltage range switch provides the proper voltages for 6V6 or EL84 output tubes (in 12-watt low-voltage/low-power mode). The 20-watt setting provides the right voltages for higher-power 6L6 or EL34 output tubes. The Special 12/20 ships from the factory with a pair of 6V6 output tubes (VHT 6V6-to-EL84 socket adapters are required for operation with EL84 tubes). In addition, the Special 12/20’s variable Watts control can reduce the maximum output power to less than one watt for whisper-quiet volume levels, according to VHT.


The 12/20’s effects loop can accommodate a range of pedal or rack effects. Those seeking the shortest signal path to the output stage can plug their pedals or multi-effects units directly into to effects return jack — the 12/20’s output stage Depth and Texture controls are post-effects loop, so the output stage characteristics can be fine-tuned to accommodate a range of instruments, speakers, playing styles and environments.


The VHT Special 12/20 also features a built-in, regulated 9-volt DC pedal power supply.


The Special 12/20 Combo and Head share the same chassis, circuit and layout design and configuration. The Special 12/20 Combo is loaded with a 12” VHT ChromeBack speaker.


Pricing & Availability:

The VHT Special 12/20 Combo has a street price of $524.99; the Special 12/20 head has a street price of $449.99.
