Our V40 Deluxe is enough for most… but lovers of high-headroom dynamics asked us for more. We delivered with V140 The Super Duchess offering classic American cleans through to pushed tweedy grit and driven British blues-rock. We also added a valve-driven long tank spring reverb for ultimate depth, plus an extra Mid Kick position for those giant, expressive cleans with body and sustain to spare.
Single Channel & Voice Switch:
Go from massive 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 Deluxe, V140 is bigger, stronger, fuller and more strident across the board for those who want it.
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!
Low Power Mode:
If 100 watts is too huge for some environments, you can switch down to 30 watts. It's still plenty loud but the feel and dynamics are different, enabling you to explore different sounds and textures either standalone or with your favourite pedals.
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, especially if you use drive in the amp. V140 is a fantastic pedal platform either straight in the front or using the loop.

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.
