Victory V4 The Duchess Guitar Amp


The Duchess in pedal form, with IR Loader from Two notes built in!

"Honey, I shrunk the amp", that must have been a regular joke in Victory's workshop during the process behind this V4 line. With this extremely compact V4 version of the Duchess you have access to the now legendary clean sounds of Victory's white classic, including the beautiful tremolo from the deluxe version. And that in backpack format! How do they do it, you might think. Well, for starters, the V4 Duchess features a tube preamp section. For amplification there is a 180 Watt transistor output stage that, thanks to the Valve-Response Circuit (VRC), has the same impact and feel as the resonance function on full tube amps. Thanks to this output stage, you can connect the V4 to a traditional guitar cabinet, but you can also output the signal directly thanks to the built-in Two-Notes Cabinet Simulation technology. Whatever situation you end up in, the V4 always has the right connection options. Once connected, you have plenty of control over your sound thanks to the interactive EQ, reverb and gain. The footswitch engages the adjustable Tremolo for an extra dimension to your clean sound. Another added benefit of the Duchess Series is how the clean sound interacts with your pedals. An ideal pedal platform amplifier, but now one that fits next to the pedals on your board!
