4 iconic British AC voicings

Inspired by our very own British Dream MKII, the Dream 40 AC takes four classic AC voices and packs them 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
Four different vintage AC preamp voices plus a mid boost/cut switch are provided, including Normal, Brilliance, Top Boost 1 and Top Boost 2—even a Top Cut control is on hand to fine-tune your tone. With this amplifier’s extended headroom, you’ll love how it stays clean even when you take the volume knob past Noon.

Tube or Solid- State Rectification
For the ultimate experience in the “feel” department, the British Dream MKII gives you two rectifier options that are controlled via toggle switch. Choose between a tube rectifier (classic vintage power supply sag) or a solid-state rectifier (efficient, clear and punchy) and easily toggle between whichever you prefer.

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 70% 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.

Tube Rectification
To really capture the feel of an early 60’s AC, 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.
