The Fryette Pittbull Ultra-Lead (formerly branded VHT) has been the secret sonic weapon of metal guitarists Page Hamilton (Helmet), Mick Thompson (Slipknot) Aaron Turner (Isis, Sumac), Rob Caggiano (Anthrax, Volbeat) Gregg Tribbet (Mudvayne) and Koichi Fukuda (Static-X), to name just a few. This iconic tone machine amp head dishes out some of the tightest, most thickly distorted all-tube tones in history, making it ideal for players who want every note they play to explode off their fretboard. The Pittbull Ultra-Lead is also one of the most tweakable high-gain tube amps you’re likely to find. With its onboard 6-band EQ and range of Boost, Shift, and Edge switches, you can precisely dial your perfect version of an impossibly aggressive metal tone.
Along with his namesake amps, Steven Fryette has been instrumental in the development of Synergy Amplification. So, adopting the man’s most intense and lauded preamp circuit into one of our preamp modules was destined to happen. Not only did Fryette re-create the Pittbull’s sonic signature in flawless detail, but he even managed to fit the amp’s 6-band EQ and forward-thinking tonal control onboard. In addition, the Ultra-Lead module automatically selects between the two Cathode profiles to ensure that each channel mode will exhibit the feel and tonal balance that the Ultra-Lead is known for. If you are looking for a simple and affordable way to add astonishing high-gain tones and extreme flexibility into your rig, the Synergy Amplification Fryette Pittbull Ultra-Lead preamp module is the perfect tool for the job.
By partnering with such iconic amplifier designers as Steven Fryette, we’re able to offer you these sought-after tones in all-tube designs that are perfect for the direct-recording, lower-stage-volume, and compact-guitar-rig demands of today.
