Tube power, killer sounds
The VB-2 is made around a tube power section that utilizes six EL34 tubes to deliver its 225 watts of power. By adjusting the Clean Gain and Overdrive Gain controls on the footswitchable Clean and Crunch channels, respectively, you can dial in tones ranging from the snarling grit of rock and metal to the weighty thump of old-school dub and reggae to clean, punchy hi-fi-all while delivering the necessary "cut" to maintain a tough bass presence in live performances.
Incredible tone control
Backing up the amplifier's tube growl is a 3-band EQ that combines the best attributes of passive and active tone controls. This section includes high and low controls, plus a mid control with a four-position midrange selector switch that lets you set the mid-frequency shift at 200, 400, 600 or 800Hz.
Matches up with practically any cab
Peavey's patented Resonance and Presence controls, which adjust the damping factor at the low and high ends, respectively, plus a three-way speaker impedance selector, enable players to match the VB-2 to virtually any bass speaker enclosure. A footswitchable mute/tuner circuit and front-panel effects loop offers up more flexibility.
