Brand: Victory Amps

This special-edition Victory DP40 The Duchess in arresting purple, with a slightly tweaked reverb section for Danish Pete! V40 The Duchess is a single-channel valve amp that's all about maximum tone with minimum confusion. Our great friend Peter 'Danish Pete' Honore has always loved the V40 for its unbeatable blend of world-class tone and go-anywhere portability. As his is the world of all-things purple, we've teamed up with Pete to offer a special edition 'DP40', available exclusively through Andertons in the UK and zZounds and American Musical Supply in the USA. US and Canadian customers can also buy directly from the Victory website in those territories. DP40 The Duchess is exactly same specification as the standard V40, but with a slightly tweaked reverb voice that offers a little more depth and brightness. It's one for the "feel" players and Danish Pete is definitely one of those!

Single Channel & Voice Switch
You can go from clean, '60s Californian tones with single coils, through to a driven mid-'60s British overdrive all in one channel. Voice II strengthens the midrange subtly at the input for more punch and cut.

Mid Kick
This works in conjunction with the Middle pot to boost midrange frequencies in the EQ section. The more you push the Midde pot, the more it pushes overdriven sounds, especially with humbuckers.

Reverb
DP40's reverb is tweaked slightly over the standard V40 to offer a little more brightness in the way Pete likes it. It sits somewhere between a plate and hall-type sound. It's hard by passable too if you want it totally out of the circuit.

Series Effects Loop
The hard-by passable effects loop enables you to use delays, reverbs etc after the preamp section of the amp to keep them clean sounding. If they aren't as clear as you like, try lowering the mix/output of the pedal, especially as you turn the amp master up.

Low Power Options
The front panel switch offers a low-power mode for around 7 watts. In addition, you can use the single-ended mode which selects to just one or other of the power valves in Class A operation (use them evenly to keep the wear roughly equal). Low power and single-ended mode together will take the output down below 1 watt RMS.

6L6 or EL34 Power Valves
V40 gives you the option of running either EL34 or 6L6 power valves. They offer subtly different tonal characteristics in terms of power stage overdrive and also overall frequency response. Notice we said subtle! There's a bias range switch to get you in the right ballpark, but precise bias adjustment is also advised whenever you change power valves.
