I just read on the Jazz Guitar Forum that GC forum member @Jim Soloway recently bought one of these on the way back to Canada from Mexico. Apparently, he is impressed.
I hope that he sees this thread and comments.

@Jim Soloway Thanks in advance for your comment and apologies if it seems that I have "put you on the spot".

Cosmo Music carries the DV Mark DV MICRO 50 Guitar Amp Head and I'm hoping they might also stock the Micro 50 Jazz in future.

The attached video reviews the amp.

Does it come with the treble already rolled back then?

No problem. I do like this amp a lot. I think it sounds really natural and not nearly as dry and nasal as a lot of "jazz" amps. Yes, it is a bit on the dark side but my guitar is tuned down a full tone to D-Standard so it's going to make most amps sound a bit dark. This was recorded with no monitors so judging the levels was pretty much impossible and it came out a lot quieter than it should have so turn up the volume a bit before hitting the play button.

Thanks for taking the time to post the comment and video. Much appreciated.

I wonder how long it will be before we see these in Canada.
Any thoughts on that?

Thanks Again

Distribution in Canada seems really sketchy and WAY overpriced. I went looking for a Little Jazz combo and there was a dealer in Vancouver but it was stupid expensive compared to the US. Considering that these are imports in both countries, I don't see why that should be. I went looking for one in Mexico as well and while it would have been a special order, it was much closer to the US price.

@Jim Soloway

This is my response from Cosmo:

The DV MARK MICRO JAZZ 50 head will take 4 months to get into our store, most likely our distributor does not have stock yet.


Our price will be $439.99

Wow! Mine was $250 US from Guitar Center. That's a big surcharge for delivery in Canada.
