Victory V4 The Jack Guitar Amp
The Jack from Victory 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. This extremely compact version of the Jack is just as versatile as its big brother, with its crystal clear clean channel and its saturated, fusion-like lead channel. And that in backpack format! How do they do it, you might think. Well, for starters, the V4 Jack 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 access to a beautiful, clear clean channel and a fat lead channel, which you can switch between using the footswitch. Both channels share the highly interactive EQ that not only colors your tone, but also affects the overdrive, as befits a real amp. The original jack amp was designed in consultation with Guthrie Govan, with the aim of being able to take it as hand luggage on the plane. You can even effortlessly take the V4 version with you on your bike!
