Mixdown magazine reviews the Little 40 L34

May 11, 2012, 8:15 a.m.

·       Mixdown magazine has lots of great things to say about the Little 40 L34! Among them:

"DV Mark amps are designed and built in Italy to incredibly strict quality control standards with some very unique features."

"Construction quality is flawless"

"You can see plenty of ‘amp guts’ through the grille, which really gives you the feeling of working with a high-end audiophile piece of equipment"

"The clean sounds are nice, and it’s handy to use the input pad to clean them up further."

"The ability to combine the CPC and Pentode/Triode modes meant lots of scope to vary between punchy and more delicate tones."

"The Little 40 is nicely input-dependent too: when I switched (from my Taylor) to my Fender American Vintage ‘62 Strat reissue I was able to get warm but zippy R&B tones and great blues and blues-rock voices, and changing pickup settings was almost like switching amp channels."

"The boost feature is great, especially when you use it to add some extra dirt and oomph to an already overdriven sound."

"Use (the boost feature) on a purely clean setting and you’ll certainly get a volume jump ... Use it with light overdrive and play gently, and there’s your clean tone. Lay in with the pick and stomp on the boost and you’re off and racing. Cool."

"If you’re a rock, fusion, jazz, country or blues-rock player who really needs some punch to their notes, this is perfection."
