The Dream 40 American takes the American channel of our very own Dream Weaver MKII and packs it into this single channel amplifier. New features include; Tube or Solid State Rectification (selectable via the Standby Switch), and our popular Citizen Loop (tube buffered/pedal optimized effects loop).

Channel Strip Close Up
The extended range of the Middle control now comes to the Dream 40 American courtesy of our very own Wooly Coats Spanky EQ circuitry. Tone and temperment of this channel is set via Volume, Treble, Middle and Bass controls to deliver an authentic blackface combo amp experience with an excellent balance of rich tone, punch and clarity. Push the midrange control past noon and you take this channel into a superb tweed growl.

Tube Rectification
For the ultimate experience in the “feel” department, we built in a rectifier tube socket loaded with a GZ34 tube rectifier for a vintage “tube sag” that adds just the right amount of compression and bounce to your sound.

HybridMASTER™ Volume Control
HybridMASTER™ and the Venue Switch are located on the front panel giving you the confidence to play what you feel when you feel it at exactly the volume you need for the occasion. Think of the Venue Switch as a “macro” volume adjustment – choose between full volume (Stage Mode) or an 80% volume reduction (Studio Mode) – and the HybridMASTER knob as a “micro” volume adjustment allowing you to fine tune your output levels. Our patented HybridMASTER is volume management executed to perfection.
