So simple, so compelling: vintage-style American cleans through to vintage British break-up – and great with pedals, too!
The combo version of our V40 The Duchess head. This single-channel, all-valve design is all about maximum tone with minimum confusion. The compact, portable 1x12 pine and ply cabinet is fitted with a Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12-inch speaker. Blues/roots-inspired players will find all the elusive, vintage pushed clean and drive sounds they love. Voice 1 offers mid-’60-type American warm clean tones. Voice II is subtly stronger and more ’50s in character. Push the gain and engage the Mid-Kick function and the V40 takes a more ’60s British voice for timeless blues-rock tones. The V40 responds to your guitar, responds to you: one for the ‘feel’ players.
Two-position Voice switch: I is cleaner and lighter in the mid range: II is slightly more edgy and pushed
Single-ended mode offers outputs of 1.5 watts (high) or 0.5 watts (low). You can use either power valve with this switch
