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.
This works in conjunction with the Middle pot to boost midrage frequencies in the EQ section. The more you push the Midde pot, the more it pushes overdriven sounds, especially with humbuckers.
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 bypassable too if you want it totally out of the circuit.
Series Effects Loop
The hard-bypassable 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.1140
