Four valves in the front end, 180-watt power section, reverb and tremolo. Only 1.7kg / 3.75lbs – a guitar amp revolution!
V4 The Duchess partners a V4 Series all-valve preamp with a solid-state, 180-watt Class D power amp. Its ultra-compact size and negligible weight disguise the huge tones it can produce. It's great for home and studio players looking for an elegant solution on a small cab or desktop, or for touring musicians who need a great-sounding, dependable pedal platform amp.
VOLUME & MASTER
Balance the front end preamp gain with the overall volume output. It will overdrive in the preamp slightly should you want that, but the main goal is higher-headroom tones and power.
Powerful bass, middle and treble controls to shape your tone. These also have an effect on the gain character and drive levels – just like in any valve guitar amp.
REVERB ON BOARD
Lush sounding digital reverb to add ambience.
From slow and pulsing to smooth and staccato, we’re suckers for one of the oldest effects in the book. Turn it on/off on the chassis, or remotely.
