Little 40 L34

DV Mark is bringing classic all-tube sound and technology into a new era of reliability and light weight. Any serious guitarist knows that a great guitar amp is not about bells and whistles... all the features need to be practical and effective. DV Mark amps take only top-quality components and put them together in a way that serves the real needs of guitarists through a simple, intuitive design.
The Little 40 L34 is a one-channel, 40W all-tube head.

Although simpler than our larger, multi-channel Bad Boy 120, it’s no less versatile. Its secret weapon is the DV Mark patent pending Continuous Power Control (CPC) feature, which allows you to actually change the amp’s power incrementally, from the full 40W (class A/B) gradually all the way down to 1W (class A) in pentode mode, or 15W (class A/B) to 0.5W (class A) in triode mode. This means you can get the tone you want at the volume you need… making the amp perfect for both bedrooms and concert stages!

Depending on your gain level and CPC setting, you can use the Solo boost switch as a drive channel.

The Little 40 L34 automatically biases and matches the output tubes and thanks to the Service port can be connected to the optional DVM Controller interface, which displays many internal amp parameters such as voltages and tube life to help you maintain the amp to its full potential.

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

“Many amps have built-in attenuation, but this is the best I’ve ever heard... “If you are a guitarist who likes power tube style distortion... you are going to love what this amp has to offer."

"The whole design of this amplifier is unique, musical and user friendly... the perfect working man’s amp for Jazz to Rock styles" says "I have rarely heard such beautifully shaped, pure tone" and tells consumers that from the Little 40, they get "boutique quality at a normal tube amp price."

“All classes and categories of amps in a single head... Organic and delicious vintage sounds... A lightweight head and cab for a massive sound"
