Your on the right Track Broclee89 ! , Watch my video all the way through, one trick ??? Hardly ! and you can give this amp to your kids some day. These Special 6 are freaky well built. Ever hear of more than one or two with issues ? Nope. Not that my couple of minutes of messing around on that amp are anything special (((LOL))) ! But it shows you the range of bite they have and the sweetness of a 6V6 powered amps cleans are. Granted if you want effects you'll have to invest in some pedals. I had a friend fry two Super Champ XD's , the internal fusible links fry and at that time there were no replacement power transformers for them, so they were garbage. The rest of this stuff is built with flimsy pcb boards and also destined for the junk pile. My 1968 Bandmaster still sounds better than most of the digitized garbage out there and is more reliable than most amps today, why ? Built right from the start !!! The VHT Special series is built with the same ideas and simplicity and that's why they sound better and last longer.
