Delta V6 amp


The Delta V6 is a custom, vintage-style hand-built blues harmonica amplifier from Stage 5 Amps, designed for mid-level to pro players. The finished Delta V6 amp is supplied with an Eminence hemp cone ceramic speaker and 6V6 power tubes.  There are two models using different preamp circuits: Octal 6SL7 and 12AY7.  Each model can be built with either Cathode Bias or Fixed Bias.  All our Delta V6 amps include our Tru-Tone Line Out circuit so you can connect directly to a PA mixer.

DETAILS:

-The Octal 6SL7 model has a warmer vintage sound of the classic late 40's / early 50's amps and a lovely fat breakup in the mid-bass area.  The 12AY7 model has a more aggressive sound of the late 50's / early 60's amps with lots of crunch and color when you lean into it.

-Bias is the way the power tubes are driven by the amp circuit.  Cathode bias sounds very vintage, with slightly less bite on the notes and even some sag.  Fixed bias sounds more out front, firmer, louder, but with less dynamics.  In our Delta V6 amps cathode bias gives the amp 15 watts, while fixed bias gives the amp 18 watts.

This is the 6SL7 tube socket in our new Delta V6 Octal 15-watt harp amp.  Take a closer look...  Tiny rubber washers above and below the mounting flange isolate the socket from the amp chassis.  Why does Bruce Collins go to such detail?  It's because while the 6SL7 tube is revered for great blues tone, it can also be prone to microphonics.  Vibrations from the amp chassis can cause it to be a bit noisy.  We want your amp to have color and texture in its tone, not mud
