A twin-channel head for brilliant solutions to creating distinctive tones. The heart of the VT Bass 1969 is the analog warmth of the SansAmp emulation circuitry that was designed to recreate the powerful tones of SVT-style bass stacks. Like the Character Series VT Bass pedal, each channel allows players to dial in their tone with a potent three-band EQ section and a full-range Drive control. The unique Character control alters the entire sonic structure of the channel, so you can dial in just the right amount of sass.

Both of the fully-independent channels feature master Level controls to preset their outputs. The VT Bass 1969 heads also feature a Gain switch to juice low output pickups or tame active basses, and a SansAmp XLR Direct Output for DI solutions both live and in the studio. Additional pro touches include an effects loop, a buffered Tuner Output and a rackmount kit. The included triple-function footswitch is phantom-powered and enables channel switching between your two hottest tones, muting, and a Mix switch to combine both channels for truly mindblowing complex tones.


  • SansAmp XLR Output works like a built-in direct box to deliver the truetone of the amp to the PA desk or studio board without compromising detail,warmth or responsiveness.
  • The XLR is switchable from -20dB to 0dB.
  • Gain is a 10dB gain boost to set up the pre-amp for different pickups. Forexample, with lower output passive pickups, you can have punchier sounds withGain engaged. Conversely, with higher output active pickups, you can have acleaner sound with Gain disengaged. Effects Loop. Tuner Output is anindependent buffered output to provide a constant unaffected signal.
