The Ventura is a response to the over-saturation of "Lunch Box" amps in the market that are found lacking in quality for professional players. Size and convenience should not mean compromise. The Ventura illustrates that size and convenience CAN be combined with high-level, professional functionality. The Ventura is made in 65amps’ factory in North Hollywood utilizing the same high-level materials and engineering experience of the 65amps crew.
The Ventura uses 2-6V6 power section and front end utilizing 65amps’ most popular circuits, The Color channel of the London and the Bump Circuit of the SoHo. This allows the Ventura to create a rich palette of American and British tones all with the signature flair that has made 65amps a major presence on top-level tours and recording studios around the world.
The "clean" side utilizes the tried and true Color Channel from 65amps' original London and the "dirty" side employs 65amps’ "Bump" circuit that made the SoHo our most popular touring amp. Players are able to seamlessly transition through 4 level of tone structure and gain structure in one amp without a thought. The Ventura is the latest offering in the 65amps "Working Pro" line that is geared towards working musicians who need super functionality and reliability while not compromising on tone and responsiveness.
