"I am looking for a loud warm clean tone to play my music. I used to play vintage amps to get that sound, but these vintage amps break a lot while touring" -says Uli- "I am now so happy that I found a guitar amp that delivers a warm clean sound with enough headroom to cut through the mix. I use the DV Mark Jazz amps, the Little 40 Tube Amps and recently I use the DV Mark Multiamp for my live and studio work“
