V40 Deluxe lives up to its name in stunning cream vinyl over traditional wooden cabinets with leather corners and handle for a modern-boutique look. You can expect classic American cleans through to pushed tweedy grit and on to driven British blues-rock. Choose between 1x12 combo or head & cab.
This is one for the 'feel' players: a boutique-standard tone machine for home, studio and stage.
Go from vintage-style Californian tones with single coils, through to a driven mid-’60s British drive all in one channel. Voice II strengthens the midrange at the input for more punch and cut. Compared with V40 The Duchess, V40 Deluxe has slightly more brightness and 'air' overall; a step or two away from mid-Atlantic Duchess towards Californian Deluxe.
This works in conjunction with the Middle pot to boost midrange frequencies in the EQ section. The more you push the Middle pot, the more it pushes overdriven sounds, especially with humbuckers. Overall you'll find slightly more overdrive and compression at maximum gain than in the Compact Series V40 The Duchess.
Valve Driven Spring Reverb and Tremolo:
V40 Deluxe benefits from a valve-driven-and-recovered long-tank spring reverb, for authentic, vintage-style ’verb. We've also included a Tone pot on the reverb that enables you to go from smooth, dark ambience to much more bright and 'springy' sounds. The reverb is also footswitchable on and off.
Tremolo was one of the first ever guitar effects that's been put to stunning use in everything from blues, rock'n'roll, country, rock, Americana, pop and much more. Given V40 The Deluxe's vintage leanings, it was a shoe-in for inclusion here. Try it with a ton of reverb and wonder how you ever lived without it!

SPEAKER CHARACTERISTICS: The G12M-65 Creamback is less sensitive/efficient (97dB) than the Vintage 30 and also the H-75 Creamback, using a medium-magnet (35 ounce) 12-inch driver. Celestion regard it as a 'more powerful Greenback' and that is the perfect description. Expect that classic, 'woody' tone and feel to add colour to your medium gain sounds, with a little speaker breakup to boot. Using two together in this cab increases the bottom end strength and power handling, with plenty of '3D', room-filling projection from front and back. There is so much character in this cabinet for classic low/medium gain tones at any volume.
