Fryette Amplification Valvulator GP3
Preamp 6 lamps

3 Channel clean rhythm lead

and in addition noon!!

UTILIZATION

Very simple level set as an amp with more features to vary the sounds nice: boost, brite, fat f / x, equation, can be activated at will and on each bank CHANNELS

English manual but if you understand anything is attending the forums often manip twelve o'clock

we discover the beast every day with great pleasure

I put 8 / 10 for those who will follow: the off switch is on the back is very inconvenient to move his hand in a rack in the middle of the cables and racks

more attention to the beast is 6 hot lamps requires no fan, then, exclude your racks do not melt!! www.ludovicdinh.com

SOUNDS

You can play the variety of blues, but the metal sutout see New!!
In short the big sound! j little trick uses an effects loop Boss DS has a 50% open in order to add gain in lead ideal for tapping legato vibrato and other bralette handle I let ds1 and I enabled the bank assigns thanks the function of gp3 fx (Gillou thank you for this board) for effective use of the gp3 I plug in series and go out of my TC Electronic G Major to attack the power amp in stereo at once!

for very large and riffeurs shreddeurs ... a graphic equalizer insane and very efficient, it deserves a good preamp power amp lamp and a good effects processor without neglecting good speakers VHT fat bottom (the ideal)

OVERALL OPINION

Very good value for money of the good stuff Rican VHT well above its competitors for my taste!

I had a lot of preamps: Rocktron voodoo valve, peavey PROFEX 2, line 6 pro (shame), engl530 ... I changed it short if it sounds even better!

Here is the high end so there is no secret

Preamp 2 units.
6 lamps 12 AX7.
Three independent channels.
Mono preamp, there is an outflow, therefore if a mono power amp behind (which is very rare) or a double cable.
1 output for direct recording.
control switch by noon or by some jack. (See photo below Pm ^ ^)
Settings: Bass middle treble volume gain for each channel. and a second gain knob for the rhythm and lead channels. channels for rhythm and lead it are two different non-controllable switch by noon that are "deep" to add more bass, as if y'avait need ... frankly, a switch and "hi-gain" which as its name indicates the gain boost
very well done for this short lil preamp, for cons I need heating in the office, with both PC and AC preamp heater itself.
I put 9 because it is not coffee.

UTILIZATION

The configuration-is it simple?
Well then the personal, I laugh, I go to a mesa quad preamp from home I took two years before managing to set it to ring a little close. I would rather tell you that it's really more intuitive as a preamp. You plug your guitar, we hack some settings, and it sounds.

we get easily a good sound, that's for sure, some of the channel. The manual that is provided is in English, but it's not too serious. and it clearly explains how the evening.
ptit the default user level is the switch to light is placed behind, not super convenient (but the right is a detail eh). I put 9 because of a switch behind

SOUNDS

Then the attack on the sensitive part.

I was looking for a preamp with lots of gain, and with a modern sound. TWINGO! (Those who have not seen the movie "who killed Pamela Rose?" Will not understand). I play mostly metal (a genre style ptite trend Néométal Mudvayne), eh bah I must say that I am not disappointed. I play mostly with my Ibanez RG570 granted Drop B Well it seriously oats. ptite with my Les Paul and EMG85, ca sent as severe.

we can obtain solid type of sound. ca on the clean channel can go from nice clean sound very round, the sound really more slamming, up cruncher happily if you push the gain knob. Personal I use for clean sounds good round. The Rhythm channel can go from lil crunch (I have not check if it could be light) has a big bluesy distortion well nag. I use this channel for crunch sounds. And then the lead channel ... BUT THEN PUT *** WHAT THE DISPATCH OF PULP Bougre !!!!!!!!!!! Finally I found a preamp and I must not go too the gain knob. gniiiii cow how severe oats! in addition I use a Marshall Valvestate Pro 120/120, so I guess not even a real tube amp ... shit I drool .... I aimeuh. I put 10 because the sounds are completely what I was looking for.

small edit: I forgot one detail, the bass was pushing back on the knob and the EQ, it sounds always, I lost against a neuron during the experiment .... ca does not bleed

OVERALL OPINION

I bought used There's a few days at 850 euros with a pedal RFX MP128, I am absolutely not disappointed. I tried anything else as preamp, apart from my quad, I have not even tried the VHT, I have relied only notice and samples (yes I'm barge), well I must say I am happy when I play. having bought OCCAZ, and seeing the new price, I think that the value for money is simply excellent. A thank you for letting me Scoti sold ^ ^

I would do the obvious choice, but I would do it much earlier, with my quad I slaved for two years to realize that ultimately it did not suit me. I hesitated with the duplex recording preamp, but I tried some before buying bah I'm not disappointed ft VHT is the class anyway. have now to buy a good power amp and banzai !!!!!

I put 9 for the switch hidden behind not practical, but it is the only flaw that I found ...

All Tube preamp, with a max output of 1 W which can work with a single 1x12 without turning on the power amps in the rack, rec-out provisions of origin, which is not negligible level connections, more than it should, everything is manageable switch or via MIDI (all shifts and cranberry).
the infinite possibilities of settings and what me and more over the following: unlike other amps like the mesa, (I do not even talk about marshall) and many others, when we turn a touch a knob, you immediately see the change (and sela 0A bottom) unlike other brands where there is a range modiffication etc., that's nickel and I really appreciate.

UTILIZATION

The manual even if it is in English is easy to understand, the preamp is really easy to use, I can not even find the words to say how much it is!

SOUNDS

Please note that kills, to locate VHT, I borrow a phrase from Gilles de audiotubetech: attention, these amps are reserved for those who have ears!! we just do everything! switch with high / low gain, it just go from clean to crunch a little often used with strata of super saturated sound, it's been a year since I full range VHT and every time I turn on my rack I have the same pleasure to listen to her and I would say that no other would suit me because I have tried almost everything! If you are looking for a clean with a fine grain, burr-free, three letters grizouillis ....., why: VHT

OVERALL OPINION

After a year of use, I would say that to me, Mr Steve Fryette VHT founder makes the best amps in the world and handmade please !!!!. Trying is all the talk, my attention, prepare the bank account because after the test, you can not wait for the money and you make your enemy banker! :-) And one last tip, if you buy the VHT, do not buy multi effects and other devices in low-end! that distort the sound if you do not believe me, try and see also my attachments, you will understand! ;-)

Fryette Amplification Valvulator GP3
Preamp lamps.
A bunch of connectors!
Surment one of the best preamp!
MIDI!
2U good ... ... but we can not have everything! : 0)

UTILIZATION

Of rglages, right, left ... of deep switch, two possible gains, nickel what!

SOUNDS

I compared it with my usual pramp (CAA 3 + SE). The two branches of a patchmate to switch to the GP3 3 +, then to a speaker and a stro VHT2/90/2 our teams in V30 and G12H100.
Canal GP3 clear: no more correct. With the EQ was a little better.
Rhythm and lead channel of GP3: L too, with the EQ you get to the guts out of the GP3.
However, I remain a bit on my end ... I thought I had more gain than the 3 + ... and finally, it's equivalent ... but good enough! : 0)

Then, point of view "grain" is clear ... my preferences for the 3 + SE, regardless of the channel. The GP3 sounds good, but I think he sings worse than the 3 + SE.

OVERALL OPINION

I have not used normment pramp of lamps: pramp studio, jmp-1, and 3 + Triaxis SE.
If I should do a ranking, the trio head would be:
1 -> 3 + SE (all channels)
2 -> GP3 (for saturation) / TriAxis (for clean sounds)
3 -> jmp-1

Nevertheless, the GP3 is nice! it is well quip and a report qualitprix correct. 8 So when even for the good pramp!

Already described in previous opinions
Tube preamp, handmade United States

UTILIZATION

Pretty Easy to use and the manual in English is very clear for some people to understand a little English.
The only thing is that the three channels, low-medium volumes treble are not programmable. Like the great equalizer settings 6 bands.
So out of 126 programmable patches are programmed channel, brite, the fat, the boost, with or without equalization, and fx (effects loop) all in or not.
The ideal would be for any preset schedule, it is not the case. So I was a little disappointed to have to limit myself. That said when you hear the potential of the beast we quickly forget the drawbacks.
Oh yes, very true: you touch a control and the sound is completely changed. Not recommended for Parkinsonniens so, but against the meticulous will get a kick!

SOUNDS

I nejoue not METAL, I mainly blues, Rock, Hard Rock, and no problem sticking to the sounds to the sound of the group.
I use several layers, some mounted with a Hotrail (Seymour Duncan) in bridge, 2 Gibson Les Paul Standard and a Flying V. a
My multi-effects is a G-Force TC electronics, and (no offense to some amplifiers Marshall EL34 100/100. I promise to try one day a VHT amp and complement the current notice. Marshall Vintage Speakers 1960A/BV 4x 12 ".

Particularly impressive, fishing and clarity of sound!
As for sound on the crunch channel rhythm with a rise Start Texas Special, we are very very close to the SRV. Much better than the Marshall JMP1 I used previously.
The strength of this preamp is effectively the versatility, there are ways to obtain a wide range of sounds very promising, and it sounds from clean to hypersaturés.
The clean sounds are also impeccable, with very sharp if you want a Start and very soft with a Les Paul. Clearly highlights the preamp guitar that plays it.
Sounds good on the lead channel saturated with Eq.en V actually tear the wallpaper, but it's not necessarily what I want.
Cons can easily be found by sound good "pêchus" and with some heat at the same time.
Note for all options: the sound is very clean even in heavy saturation.
Important to note: the dynamics of sound is impressive, fishing is almost monstrous.
A cold I would say that the sound is a bit "hard", but when the lights were very hot, it's just hot!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for two months and the opinion of all those who hear the sound is great.
Highlights of the machine: it sounds like an amp head and not as a rack, and more versatility.
Before buying it I played Marshall, 30th anniversary, JMP1, JCM900, the heads of the 70's, Music Man RD, Vox AC30.
It is clear that it looks really great, but I am waiting to hear the first recordings because I found the sound of my system very well with the JMP1 and I was a little disappointed with the sound recorded in Live ( it sounds a bit less natural That a true Marshall and his head seems to be somewhat compressed. That said I disagree with the opinion that excessive Affiris marshall that it's crap etc. ..
It depends on what you want to do!
Value for money: it's expensive (especially still need the rest of the stuff that follows!), But it's good, so it is a choice.

USE

ENTERING AND USING easy enough and English manual is very clear as long as we understand some English.
The only thing is that the 3-channel, low volume medium treble are not programmable. Similarly the rglages the excellent equalizer 6 bands.
So the 126 programmable patches on the channel program, the brite, the fat, the boost, with or without EQ, and FX (effects loop (everything in yes or no).
The ideal would be to code everything by preset, this is not the case. So I have a little t have to limit myself in my programming. That said when we hear the potential of the beast we quickly forget the disadvantages.
Oh yes, very true, we touch a rglage and the sound is completely modified. A so dconseiller to Parkinsonniens, but against the mticuleux will get a kick!

SONORITS

I play very little METAL, I'm mainly blues covers, Rock, Hard Rock and no problem to stick the sonorits the sound of the group.
I use several strats some with a hotrail in bridge, 2 a Gibson Les Paul Standard and Flying V.
My mulktieffets is a GForce TC electronics, and (do some dplaise a Marshall EL34 power amp 2X 100-Watts. I promise to try 2 90 2. VHT and complter notice prsent.Diffuseuers Marshall 1960 4x 12''Vintage.

Particulirement impressive crunch sounds on the rhythm channel with a Strat Texas Special rises, it is very very nearly Sound SRV. Much better than the Marshall JMP1 I used prcdemment.
The strength of this is actually the prampli versatilit there way to get a very wide range of sonorits very pro, and clear sound with hypersaturs sounds.
The clean sounds are also impeccable, very sharp with a strat and very soft with a Les Pau. Clearly this prampli showcases the guitar plays.
Well saturs sounds on the lead channel with V eq (see rglages suggrs by Gillou) actually tear the wallpaper, but that's not necessarily what I want, but easily touve pchus sounds well and with some heat at the same time.
Note for all the options that the sound is very clean even in heavy saturation.
Important note its dynamics is impressive, fishing is almost monstrous.
A cold I would say even the sound is a bit "hard", but when the lights have good heating I would say it is simply cannon!

NOTICE GLOBAL

I've had a week and on Monday our concert must be recorded. I will give the links to listen to the MP3s on the band's website.
Highlights of the machine: it sounds like a head amp and not a system rack, the versatilit more.
Acqurir before I played on Marshall, 30th anniversary, JMP1, JCM900, the heads of the 70's, music Man RD, Vox clear AC30.C'est that looks really aa great, but I expect the results of the recordings because I found the sounds of my system very well with the JMP1 and I will a little sound recorded in Live (a sounds a bit less natural That a true Marshall head and the sound of the area be slightly compress. That said, I dsapprouve excessive notice that affirement marshall is crap.
It all depends on what you want to do!
Quality price ratio: it's expensive but it's good, so it is a choice.
