And it's the perfect match for your overdrive and effects pedals, as the power level output control makes it easy to dial in the perfect balance of volume and power tube saturation.

Three tube modes for three distinct voicings

Morgan Amps equips the AC40 Deluxe with 12AX7 and EF86 tubes for an impressive range of tone. The EF86 is switchable - bringing it in allows you to achieve more growl and higher gain tone. You also have switchable control for brightness and bass cut. Between these three switches, you can dial in all types of '60s British amp tones from extremely clean to ultra-aggressive.

 

Your effects pedals will sound great, thanks to adjustable power

Guitarists at Sweetwater know that the key to getting a great tone from your overdrive and other pedals is to set your power amp level just right. You can do that and still keep the volume at a reasonable level, too, with the AC40 Deluxe tube amp head. The power level control lets you adjust the power amp section's volume without actually choking the signal that's sent to the power tubes. That means you get the interaction between your pedals and the power amp that you need for great tone at whatever volume level is appropriate for your situation.

Simple controls unleash a wide tonal range

You can tell that Morgan Amps products like the AC40 Deluxe tube amp are made for hard-gigging guitarists just by looking at them. The simple control set conceals a surprisingly wide range of tone, but you'll never have to spend long turning numerous knobs to get the right sound. Even if someone carelessly bumps all the knobs and switches out of place, it will only take seconds to get your tone back.

    The Morgan AC40 Deluxe is a deceptively simple amplifier that is capable of producing a myriad of early 60s British tones but that is just the beginning. The switchable EF86 tube helps to make the range of tones from the cleanest of EL84 chime to ferocious high gain growl. The power level control allows you to dial in just the right amount of volume without sacrificing your tone the way some master volumes do. The AC40 Deluxe was created to solve modern guitar player amplifier issues with the ability to stay true to vintage tonality. It is equally at home in the studio or on the stage. It can be seen on the stages of superstars like Jeff Tweedy, Mike Landau, Josh Smith and Kirk Fletcher. Plug into the AC40 Deluxe and you will instantly notice the familiar chime and compression of the Class A EL84 driven output section. The amplifier’s extreme touch-sensitivity will allow you to coax clean tones even at the highest of gain settings. To quote Keith Armstrong (Chief Engineer at Mix LA) “It is impossible to get a bad sound out of this amp!” The Power Level control is a big part of the magic. Most guitarists today have spent large sums of money and even more amounts of time working on their pedal boards. Most pedals are not designed to be used with a tube amp on “1”. They were designed to interact with the amplifier at or near the point at which it begins to break up. That is why an overdrive pedal is called an “over” drive. It is driving the amp over that point. Unfortunately that volume can be too loud for most live applications. The Power Level control on the AC40 Deluxe solves this. Think of conventional master volumes as a spigot on a garden hose, they choke off the signal to the power section of the amp to a usable level. Most conventional master volumes also affect the way your pedals interact with your amp. The Power Level control behaves like a zoom lens. It limits the size of the output signal that can be produced by the output tubes. It does NOT choke the signal down and therefore behaves identical as if the amp were running at full volume. This means that you can choose the power that you need, anything from 1/2 of a watt to 40 watts. The AC40 Deluxe uses 3 separate switches to give you all of the original early 60’s EL84 tonalities, Normal, Brilliant and EF86. Never has such a deceptively simple amp had so many tonal options.
