Vision DV Mark is committed to designing and manufacturing top-quality guitar amplifiers, cabinets, combos and effect pedals that offer killer tone, extreme reliability, super-light weight, great versatility, cool design and excellent value.

DV Mark Product line 2010 4
DV Mark products are 100% Made in Italy, with passion and careful attention to thousands of details. From the leather handle to the smallest details, the design and construction is meticulous—evidence of a quality level expected only from master craftsmen. This applies to the whole line, from smaller combos to bigger rigs. Thanks to our state-of-the-art quality control facilities and the best components, we’re proud to offer a very high quality standard—but at competitive and honest prices, and with full respect for human rights. All-tube heads have always been heavy, and guitarists expect their gear to weigh a lot. But now the time has come for guitarists to enjoy lighter gear, like their bass players do. All the tone you want, without the heavy hassle! At DV Mark, service assistance is top priority, and all our customers are considered part of the family! We know that you need to be able to trust your gear, so we work tirelessly to make products you can count on.
DV Mark is bringing classic all-tube sound and technology into a new era of reliability and light weight. Any serious guitarist knows that a great guitar amp is not about bells and whistles... all the features need to be practical and effective. DV Mark amps take only top-quality components and put them together in a way that serves the real needs of guitarists through a simple, intuitive design.
BAD BOY 120 The Bad Boy 120 is a loud, 120W three-channel alltube head. Our most powerful amp offers a wide range of clean and distorted tones for any musical style. It features three separate and unique preamps; so although each channel looks identical, each Gain control affects your sound differently. You can footswitch between channels, and choose which channel the effects loop is assigned
to; or use the optional Bad Boy Controller, which memorizes your configurations until the next power-on. The patent pending Advanced Tube Control System is an optional feature that allows users to connect the amp to a computer, and use dedicated software to collect technical data and tube parameters from the amp.

LITTLE 40 L34 The Little 40 is a one-channel, 40W all-tube head. Although simpler than our larger, multi-channel Bad Boy 120, it’s no less versatile. Its secret weapon is the DV Mark patent pending Continuous Power Control (CPC) feature, which allows you to actually change the amp’s power incrementally, from the full 40W (class A/B) gradually all the way down to 1W (class A) in pentode mode, or 15W (class A/B) to 0.5W (class A) in triode mode. This means you can get the tone you want at the volume you need…making the amp perfect for both bedrooms and concert stages! Depending on your gain level and CPC setting, you can use the Boost switch as a drive channel. The Little 40’s other patent pending feature is the Advanced Tube Control System, which measures all the tubes’ parameters to help you take care of your amp. 10

for bedroom practicing, the Galileo 15 offers incredible sound and reliable performance for recording, rehearsals, small clubs and more. It offers surprising headroom, attack and tonal versatility for a small 15W amp!

Combos are all about practicality. Combining a head and a cabinet into one box is meant to make your life easier as a guitarist. But classic combos are still heavy, and often need to be cranked in order to get the right tone. But not only are DV Mark combos wonderfully light, they also provide a new standard for tonal versatilityâ€”the Continuous Power Control feature allows you to get the tone you want at the volume you need!
DV40 112 COMBO DV40 212 COMBO triode mode. Plug into this combo and you’ll immediately hear its quality: very clean sounds even at high volumes, great crunchy rhythm tone, rich saturation, boost switch for lead playing, balanced response in all frequency ranges and impressive bass response—even from the 1x12”! The range of tonal options is incredible, and it’s easy to find your own sound quickly using EQ and the very practical CPC feature.

Marco De Virgiliis created a revolution in bass speaker cabinets when he started using neodymium speakers, making cabs about half the weight they were before. All other manufacturers have followed suit and neodymium is now the new normal. Bass players will never look back. But guitarists have become understandably jealous, and itâ€™s about time they enjoyed lighter gear. Tone and reliability are the top priorities. But light weight is a very welcome bonus!
