Last week, we posted our picks for five essential heavy metal guitar amps. It featured a quintet of out-of-the-box, ready-for-business bruisers that are perfect for purveyors of the heaviest of rock. The story was so popular that we found ourselves asking each other, "Why limit it to five amps?"
Marco De Virgiliis, the brains behind DV Mark, made an extraordinary first impression a decade ago when he introduced the acclaimed Markbass line of bass guitar amplifiers. More recently he’s expanded his offerings with the DV Mark line of guitar amplifier heads and combos, which share the same attention to detail and focus on features that musicians really want and need, such as compact portable configurations, bulletproof construction and affordable prices. The DV Mark Triple 6 is a three-channel, 120-watt all-tube head similar to its brother, the Bad Boy 120. But whereas the Bad Boy is voiced to provide a wide range of tones, the Triple 6 is exclusively designed for hard rock and metal guitarists who prefer aggressive, supersaturated high-gain tones.
