The Venus Recording is your all-tube analog mega tone machine. With 2 channels, Treble Bright and Middle Notch switches, Voicing switch, Built in 11 band Rockrec EQ and a pre and power amp channel assignable effects loop, you'll be able to dial in any tone you can dream of Directly into your DAW or a mixing console. No need to mic a Cab again! However, there's 25watts of luscious 6V6 power, which is plenty to push your favorite cabinet on stage when you need. Also, features a Foot-switchable lead boost, balanced and unbalanced outputs, an Aux input and a Headphone output for late night silent jams.

Two Channels
Channel 1s can go from super spanky clean to a hot blues overdrive or classic rock tone. The combinations of the Treble Pull Bright and Middle Pull Notch can give you 4 different clean voicings and allows you to get tweed or blackface tones.
Channel 2s lead channel can be voiced for either classic rock, hard rock, metal or progressive shred.

11 Band EQ
These 11 bands of EQ frequencies are all in the guitar speaker range and were chosen to allow you to mimic most of the common guitar speakers used for classic, vintage and modern tones. Each band has a DB range +18 or -18 giving you mega amount of dynamic range which allows you to dial any style of tone, fit in any mix or cut through any band.

Aux In

The Auxiliary Input allows for an external signal, such as the preamp of another amplifier, an effects device that would run in parallel, or a music source such as an iPod or iPhone to be inserted either before the power amplifier section, or before the recording output.

Headphone Out

The Headphone Output is provided to monitor in real time the signal from the Recording Output or from the signal feeding the power amplifier. Because of latency in DAWs, having a real-time monitor of your signal allows you play along accurately.
For late night shredding, you can silently play and record. A musician can also dial-in his tone before sending the signal to the front of the house.

Voicing knob
Classic guitar tones have a midrange notch that varies from 250 Hz to 800 Hz. On channel 2, our lead channel, you can adjust the interaction of the 3 band passive tone controls with the Voicing control to range from our knucklehead series, tweed 2 knob Fender champ, to a vintage 60s Marshall top, JTM-45 Combo, to a Vox AC-30 or classic blackface Fender.

A level meter is provided that can be switched from measuring the power amp output in watts, or the recording output level in dB (decibels).

Rear Panel
There are two recording outputs provided, a balanced and transformer isolated XLR, and a unbalanced phone jack output. Both can be used simultaneously. Features also include 2 speaker outs, 4/8/16 impedance switch, High and Low power switch (25watts or 7watts) and a Silent (internal load) or External (cabinet) load switch.

Foot Switch included. Rack ears and FS7M Midi interface optional.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
