From exotic cars to high-end fashion, there's a reason why Italian design is so widely sought after. When it comes to the music world, this is exemplified by DV Mark Amplifiers. While the company makes a whole catalog of guitar gear, amps have always been their pride and joy, making outstanding Italian craftsmanship affordable for guitarists the world over. DV Mark's signature creations are built in San Giovanni Teatino, Italy, by technicians working closely with the workshop's experienced engineers. The result is that every amplifier head, cabinet and combo is carefully scrutinized by the entire DV Mark team before it leaves the shop, never relying on outside contractors to uphold their meticulous standards.
Considering the heftiness of most vacuum tube amplifiers, you'll be happy to know that DV Mark has focused a lot of effort on building amps that are as lightweight as possible, even when they have tubes under the hood. You'll find the difference especially noticeable in the combo amps, which often use Italian poplar cabinets and neodymium driver magnets to lighten up on pounds with no loss of audio quality.
Of DV Mark's combo amps, the headliner has got to be the Frank Gambale signature model, packing 150W into a 1x12" driver setup. Built to Frank's exacting specifications, this amp has enough gain to stay clear even with the volume cranked. Its distortion is tied to the drive channel, which means that you can have complete control over it with nothing more than a single pedal.
Whether you go for the Gambale or build your own high-powered stack with DV Mark amp heads and cabinets, it's never been a better time to take home your own little piece of Italy. Everything that rolls off the DV Mark production line is a showcase of their attention to detail and exacting standards for tone, delivering bleeding-edge performance on the stage and in the studio.
