Mixdown reviews the Galileo 15 head and DV40 212 combo

July 12, 2013, 9:42 a.m.
Mixdown has published reviews of the Galileo 15 head and DV40 212 combo in their July 2013 issue.

Here are some excerpts:
 
GALILEO 15
• A tasty little amp that could be your home, practice, small gig and/or recording solution.
• DV Mark have really stuck to their promise of lightweight amps with this being as portable as you'll get
• I was impressed with the Galileo 15's headroom and clean volume
• With a pair of EL84's in the power section you really are getting some tube warmth
• For some extra spark the Bright switch was some extra chime
• The Galileo 15 is a real alternative in those instances when a smaller rig will suffice
 
DV40 212
• It’s great that the amp is designed with a carrying handle on its side instead of the top
• The ‘chicken head knobs’ make it super-easy to see how your amp is configured from a good distance away.
• The first channel is capable of everything from a clear, sparkling bell tone to a mean, punchy countrified clean with a hint of overdrive
• The second channel is dirtier and can handle some very nice crunch tones as well as rounder blues-rock lead sounds
• This is also a great channel for those who like to ride their guitar’s volume knob for gain changes
• it really seems to thrive on the detail of my Strat while emphasising the thickness of my Les Paul
• The CPC is really the key to getting the most out of this amp
• You can use it (the CPC) to add more sparkle to a dull guitar, tame the edge off an overly bright one, or just generally open up or clamp down on your tone for the most appropriate sound for the musical situation at hand
• The Accutronics spring reverb sounds great and... sits absolutely perfectly with the voicing and dynamic profile of the amp
• If you play blues-rock, fusion, indie, classic rock, psychedelia, stoner rock or even certain kinds of vintage metal, there are plenty of tones in here for you to really dig into
