Curious if any one has tried the Little Walter V40 combo amp with onboard 3-knob reverb? As far as I know, this is the first LW amp with onboard reverb which would make it a pretty great grab-and-go amp for PSG. I had a Paul Franklin '89 head and 1x15 cab briefly but had to sell it when my sewer line collapsed last Summer. That was a beautiful sounding amp, but I wasn't crazy about having to run an outboard reverb pedal with it. Here is the link to the V40.

I believe this uses the same circuit as the older V50 amps, i.e. octal preamp tubes. I've heard some say that this amp is a little 'dark' for PSG, but the one I heard at the Denver PSG show year before last sounded amazing to my ears.
