All the elusive, vintage pushed clean and drive sounds you love for anything from blues to roots and rock'n'roll. This single-channel, all-valve amp is all about maximum tone with minimum confusion, housed in the same light and portable chassis as our award-winning V30 The Countess. Voice 1 offers mid-’60-type American warm clean tones. Voice II is subtly stronger and more ’50s in character. As you push the gain and engage the Mid-Kick function, the V40 takes on a more ’60s British voice for timeless blues-rock tones. All the time the V40 responds to your guitar, responds to you: it’s one for the ‘feel’ players.

Single Channel & Voice Switch

You can go from clean, ’60s Californian tones with single coils, through to a driven mid-’60s British overdrive all in one channel. Voice II strengthens the midrange subtly at the input for more punch and cut.

Mid Kick

This works in conjunction with the Middle pot to boost midrage frequencies in the EQ section. The more you push the Midde pot, the more it pushes overdriven sounds, especially with humbuckers.

Reverb

V40 The Duchess uses a digital reverb section which sits somewhere between a plate and hall-type sound. It's 'smoother' and more 'modern' sounding than a traditional spring reverb. It's hard bypassable too if you want it totally out of the circuit.

Series Effects Loop

The hard-bypassable effects loop enables you to use delays, reverbs etc after the preamp section of the amp to keep them clean sounding. If they aren't as clear as you like, try lowering the mix/output of the pedal, especially as you turn the amp master up.

Low Power Options

The front panel switch offers a low-power mode for around 7 watts. In addition, you can use the single-ended mode which selects to just one or other of the power valves in Class A operation (use them evenly to keep the wear roughly equal). Low power and single-ended mode together will take the output down below 1 watt RMS.

6L6 or EL34 Power Valves

V40 gives you the option of running either EL34 or 6L6 power valves. They offer subtly different tonal characteristics in terms of power stage overdrive and also overall frequency response. Notice we said subtle! There's a bias range switch to get you in the right ballpark, but precise bias adjustment is also advised whenever you change power valves.
