Great for Cleans and Edge of Breakup Amp

KenA, 17.12.2016
As expected and as advertised the V40H does exactly what we heard from the reviews. I just got mine so I can't tell you about durability, but sound wise speaking it's a very good amp. I haven't used any pedals because I want to learn all the sounds I can get from the amp itself. I run it into a Suhr Reactive Load box > Audio Interface > DAW and I use IRs with software based Cabinets. The results are amazing so it probably will sound even better with real Cabs and Speakers. Every knob/switch is working perfectly, it's very well constructed and mine came with stock EL34s. It's a great amp!

Really really good!

MatzeF, 01.05.2017
Brief history: I use a single channel with pedals in my band. For really small gigs or when it's time to be very quiet, or in or for outdoor gigs (list of excuses can be expanded as desired), I was looking for a suitable amplifier. An acquaintance has shown me his V40 and made tasty, so I've also ordered one.

Master, Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble, Reverb. These are the controls, which are supplemented by the possibility to choose two different basic sounds (Voice I and II). Whether Voice I sounds like a Blackface, I can not judge, but the fact is that here is a warm and full Cleansound (with single coils) sounds. Voice II becomes slightly brighter and biting. For this purpose, an additional MidKick can be selected for both basic principles. The options already make a lot.
The Hall can be deactivated completely by means of push buttons, as well as the FX Loop. The Hall is also switchable by Footswitch.
It should not fail at the control and setting possibilities!

The amp can be operated with 8 Ohm and 16 Ohm, which gives also enough freedom for all possible boxes. It should be noted, however, that the feet of the amp are quite small and he does not find a safe stand on a Mesa box, which has the carrying handle on the top (in my case a 1x12 Widebody Closed Back) Of the box is higher than the feet of the amp. This is not a blemish, just take note of it!

I find the possibility to adjust the power of the amplifier. First, two power levels can be selected on the front panel. In addition, this performance can be reduced once again on the back. Thus the amp can be played in a range from 40 to less than 1 Watt. This is what you hear, and you can see that makes the small box more flexible to use.

A word about the sound: I use the V40 mainly with Tele and Strat. The sound stays clean for a long time, gets quite a bit (in the case of Voice I) a little dirt in the sound. For a guitar with humbuckers pulls it much earlier, but Hi Gain is to be expected here wrong. If you need something like that, you can help with pedals that the amp takes without problems.

The overall package includes a footswitch for the Hall, a small manual, a power cable and a padded bag for transport.

My real cleanamp is a two rock. Two gigs I have now with the V40 behind me and I have to say, the skin really looks around the small box. In the direct comparison, my Two Rock (also in the blind test!), Which simply has even more sound depth (but also costs a couple of marks), but the Victory V40 does not do anything wrong!
