Works in conjunction with the middle pot to boost midrange frequencies in the EQ section. The more you push the mid pot, the more it pushes overdriven sounds, especially with humbuckers. Position 2 is new (compared with V40 Deluxe) and is extra strident and cutting. Beautiful clarity with cleans too.
Long-Tank Spring Reverb
V140 has a valve-driven-and-recovered long-tank spring reverb, for authentic, vintage-style ’verb. We've also included a Tone pot on the reverb that enables you to go from smooth, dark ambience to much more bright and 'springy' sounds. The reverb is also footswitchable on and off.
Tremolo was one of the first ever guitar effects that's been put to stunning use in everything from blues, rock'n'roll, country, rock, Americana, pop and more. It's much loved in the V40 Deluxe, so we included it here as well. A little or a lot, especially with reverb – utterly addictive!
Low Power Mode
If 100 watts is too huge for some environments, you can switch down to 30 watts. It's still plenty loud but the feel and dynamics are different, enabling you to explore different sounds and textures either standalone or with your favourite pedals.
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, especially if you use drive in the amp. V140 is a fantastic pedal platform either straight in the front or using the loop.
