Comments about DV Mark Micro50 50W Guitar Amp Head:

Very surprised at the tone. I was able to get a clean, jazzy tone from this amp using my archtop guitar. It seems to have enough power to meet all my gigging needs. I'm using a cab, with a 12 inch Celestion speaker.

Comments about DV Mark Micro50 50W Guitar Amp Head:

However - it would have received a 5 star rating except for one problem. In the 'Over-drive' mode - I notice noise coming from this unit. How so? With my Fender Squire - Strat - in positions (1) - (3) - (5) there is noise. In positions (2) - (4) No noise. So I tried it with my American built 1982 Strat - Repeating the same conditions - the problem is still there.

Using my 1953 Gretsch Electromatic - NO Problems - Also, using my Ibanez - NO Problems.

So in conclusion - There is something in the switching control of the my Fender Strat's that the DV Mark 50 - doesn't like. Other than that - You'll love it!

GB,
You strat has single coil pickups, that's where the noise comes from. In positions 2 and 4 you are using two pups together, like a humbucker = no hum. Your amp is fine, your guitar is fine.

    Comments about DV Mark Micro50 50W Guitar Amp Head:

    This amp head is loud enough to use in a Jazz Trio or Quartet setting. Thought I'd say such... cos,I haven't come across a review about such being used in a Jazz gig.

      Comments about DV Mark Micro50 50W Guitar Amp Head:

      In this age of 4 lb. Class D amplifiers, this amp is a real winner. I have tried and also own other brands of these small amps but this one stands out from the rest. I have two of these and plan to install one on a pedalboard. I have been playing over 50 years and can't handle large heavy amps. It was a real pleasant surprise when I hooked up this amp and heard it for the first time. Both channels sound great and it takes pedals very well. Getting it on sale was icing on the cake!

        This is a nice sounding amp I use for Jazz. It has nice clean, warm sounds. It also has 2 channels for a little over drive and enough controls and affects to satisfy most players and enough power for most uses. Well forth the price.

          Comments about DV Mark Micro50 50W Guitar Amp Head:

          Trying to lighten my load due to age and back issues. This was one more step in that direction. I use it with a Fender BassBreaker 112 extension cabinet with an Eminence Lil' Texas neodymium speaker (18 lb. total). I drive the head with a Boss MS-3 with an expression/volume pedal, Xotic SP compressor and Wampler Tumnus overdrive in the loops. The MS-3 will also switch channels on the head. The tone is great and it is very powerful and loud for 50W. The overdrive channel can be tweaked to produce really good results. I'm ecstatic. I Also have Quilter Tone Block 200 and the Pro Block, which are more powerful and more expensive but without channel switching. I believe the DV Mark is a better product for my needs.

            Comments about DV Mark Micro50 50W Guitar Amp Head:

            I'd been going back and forth about buying a Micro 50 when I happened on a used one at a very attractive price. I've been playing it for a couple of days and overall I'm very happy with it.

            Sound-wise, the clean channel is very Fender-ish, which is to say somewhat bassy, although that can be compensated by adjusting the tone controls. The tone controls aren't super responsive, like some modern amps, but more like those on a classic amp. Through my 12" Mojotone cabinet with an Eminence Patriot I get classic Fender tones. Through my Eden EX110 (a compact bass cabinet) I get a very clear, hi-fi, sound that's great for jazz, or for amplifying acoustic instruments.

            The overdrive channel has a good crunch at lower levels and a nice sustain at high levels. Unless you're very picky about your overdrive sound, you don't need pedals with this amp. (I did test it with an MXR Micro Amp, and it responded need well to that). The amp doesn't come with a foot pedal (kind of a necessity for channel switching) but the inexpensive single button Fender pedal that Musicians Frend sells works fine.

            Overall I'm very happy with it. It's more than loud enough for any playing I do, and compact enough to carry in a bookbag. I'm going to make an 8" cabinet for it with a full-range driver that im hoping will make the ideal portable rig.

              DEPENDING ON WHAT CABINET THAT YOU USE, THIS THING PUTS OUT MEGA BASS WITH MY CONVERTIBLE JET CITY 1X12 CABS WITH THE PANEL INSTALLED MAKING THEM CLOSED BACK. I AM RUNNING THE BASS KNOB ON THE CLEAN CHANNEL ON THE 2ND OR 3RD MARK WITH MY SQUIER TELE TO GET THAT GOOD TWANG. IT HAS A DIFFERENT SOUNDING REVERB THAN I AM USED TO. THE REVERB, TO MY EARS, SOUNDS LIKE A REVERB/CHORUS KIND OF SOUND. I DON'T HAVE TO TURN IT UP VERY MUCH TO GET A GOOD REVERB SOUND, WHICH DEPENDS ON THE AMOUNT OF VOLUME THAT YOU LIKE TO RUN THE AMP AT. I JUST GOT IT ON THURS. OF LAST WEEK SO I HAVEN'T TRIED EXPERIMENTING WITH OTHER EFFECT PEDALS YET. SEEMS LIKE A WELL BUILT, GOOD SOUNDING AMP THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME. TRY ONE!

                  Finally a lightweight guitar head with reverb, perfect for an amateur jazz guitarist like me. Great for archtops. Top pros have used mine on gigs, perfectly happy with the tone and volume. Takes pedals well and has a decent dirty channel, adding versatility. The fan, a complaint on previous DV Mark amp designs, only engages on extended high-volume runs - in my case only once so far, when hard-pressing new speaker cabinets.
