For many players, a 6V6 powered combo is an American classic thanks largely to the small wattage combo’s build in the USA in the ’50s and mid-’60s! The new Koch Ventura amplifier is the first Koch amp based on 6v6 power-amp. With this new Ventura combo, we give a big wink to the amplifiers from that era that we love so much.
First of all, The Koch Ventura is a 1x12" combowith Baltic Birch construction in a stunning classic Two-Tone look. Koch uses original Koch custom vinyl in creme and Red for this amp. The Ventura is equipped with an original Koch 12 Vg12-60 speaker. The Koch Ventura is a 2 channel combo with shared passive 3-way tone control which contains bass, mids, and treble. The clean channel has a bright and clear sound, with a spanky mid-range and full-bodied low-end.The clean channel was also designed to take pedals very well. The distortion channel offers you gloriously thick, saturated tones. You can dial the gain from a bold distorted Bluesy tone to a solid medium gain Rock sound. The 6v6 tubes in the power amp have a very balanced eq response with a smooth and clear top end and bold bass response. There is also a short-scale spring reverb tank, with a level adjustment on the top panel. The serial "buffered" effects loop allows you to connect external effects units between the pre and power amp sections of the Ventura.
The Ventura features an internal Dummy load and cab-simulated unbalanced jack output. This direct output you can send to the front of the house or use in the studio. The Ventura also allows you to play "silently," meaning you can safely play the amp with the internal speaker turned off. On the backpedal of the amp there's a speaker on/off switch.
