I got this amp because I needed a very portable amp for jazz gigs.
After 34 years of playing, I'm tired of lugging around heavy equipment.
It's 40 watts of clean, warm power. It's amazingly light and articulate. My other main amp is a Tech 21 TM 60 and this sounds much better - more articulate, fuller, warmer. If you are looking for breakup or accentuated high's, this is not your amp.
High's are a bit rolled off, but not too much. With a pedal I can still get quite a nice tele/ stones sound.
I was worried about power, but it's quite loud. Last weekend, I played an outdoor jazz & then Rock set, and this handled it just fine, with an acoustic drummer (not mic'd) with the volume on 6.
It has no distortion, but works well as a blank canvas for pedals.
For jazz, this is a phenomenal amp. Highly recommended.

The amp gets great jazz tone from a small package, but you have to get past the noise of the fan. Why would anyone put a fan on a Jazz amp??? You will either need to replace the fan with a quieter fan, voiding your warranty, or install and on/off switch for the fan, also voiding the warranty. Otherwise it sounds like the hum of an electric space heater. If you're willing to make one of those changes, this is probably the best jazz amp for it's size and price range that you will find. It has plenty of volume to play with a combo, and a shocking amount of bass for such a small amp.

    Comments about DV Mark Little Jazz Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp to take to rehearsals because I dislike having to use a cart to haul a heavy amp around. At the first rehearsal I used it, the leader commented that he liked the sound from it. That's the first time he has ever mentioned my sound, so i decided to use it for the performance. It has plenty of output for use in the Big Band I play in even though I'm sitting between the bass player and the brass section, but the sound guy had me miked anyway. I really like that it has a balanced line out, a speaker out with an on/off switch for the internal speaker and a ground lift switch. The sound is very smooth and warm, and I think I actually prefer it to my Polytone. The position of the power switch and the sound level of the fan (It has to have a fan due to the presence of the 12AX7 tube in the pre-amp stage) is of no consequence to me. The price is right, the sound is good and the portability and build quality is outstanding.

    Comments about DV Mark Little Jazz Guitar Combo Amp:

    I read the reviews about the noisy fan, but I'm a small amp junkie (ZT's, Rolands, Fenders, etc...), so I couldn't resist getting it anyway. The fan certainly is noisy, but the jazz tone is wonderful. I leave the knobs at twelve o'clock, and the balance is superb--clean and buttery. It does justice to my Gibsons (ES 175 & ES 125 tdc) and my Sadowsky Jim Hall. I haven't tried yet, but I think it can hold it's own with a small combo in a small venue, if not, I can always mic it through the PA.

      Comments about DV Mark Little Jazz Guitar Combo Amp:

      It's not all that loud - I don't need it to be, as I've got bigger amps - but it sounds quite good! The fan is audible when I'm not playing, but it doesn't bother me as I'm not planning to use it for recording. The Little Jazz sounds warmer, more open, and louder than any of the many other affordable really small amps I've tried. I'll happily use it for practice, solo, and duo work.

          Excellent amp. Better sound quality than I was expecting. Surprisingly full sound for such a small amp. Sounds great by itself and fantastic with an extension speaker. And of course, super light and portable.
          Only drawback is in the design - - - I HATE having the on/off switch on the back panel of amps.

          Comments about DV Mark Little Jazz Guitar Combo Amp:

          While I play jazz, and often use this with a Dot set up w/ flatwounds & a Duncan hb-2 in the neck position, and compare it to "jazz" amps from Polytone and Evans, and feel that this will hang with those,it's capable of more.
          I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small gig amp w/ reverb that can live with using a few pedals.
          I in addition to the SS amps above I compared it to a PRRI, and a few other similar amps both new and vintage, and found this to be worthy. I use it with a trem pedal and a OD, and cover gigs from classic rock, to surf, country as well as a variety of jazz styles. Takes a variety of pickups well and maintains the core sound of the guitar being played.
          A godsend for anyone relying on public transport, living in a walk up or older folks who are no longer able or willing to move a ton of gear.
          The fan is not loud on mine, but is audible and could be picked up by a high quality mike, so perhaps not the best choice for serious recording..

                  Love the tone and will probably get used to the loud fan noise. Own a Mark Bass combo amp that I love--must have built by different hands in a better shop. Difference in quailty control is a head-scratcher.
