The Victory V4 Copper Pedalboard Amp combines a V4 preamp with a 180-Watt power section and on-board Two notes DynIR technology , all the Copper tone in a small box.
The Copper is British inspired chime and blues in our V4 power amp pedal! Four valves in the front end, 180-watt power section, two channels, reverb and Two notes technology. Only 1.7kg / 3.75lbs – all the Copper tone in a small box!
The V4 Copper amp delivers all-valve clean and overdrive, the footswitchable treble boost brings in a gain boost and creates creamy valve overdrive and sustain. It’s the amp for that classic British jangle!
All-valve preamp sound
The V4 Copper has an all-valve preamp section with 1 x EC900 and 3 x CV4014 valves running at high plate voltage, this is paired with a solid state power section.
Designed to be like a gain boost, this treble boost circuit helps to push the V4’s front end to create creamy valve overdrive and sustain. The non treble boost side goes from clean through to slightly pushed, both sides have their own volumes controls.
Lush sounding digital reverb gives you ambience aplenty. Run it low for a subtle feeling of space, or max it out for washy, splashy hugeness! The reverb is foot-switchable using a TRS cable (sold separately).
Two notes Technology
Two notes Audio engineering Torpedo-embedded DynIR Virtual Cabinet technology is onboard the Copper. The Cab Sim XLR makes is super easy to take you Victory virtual cabinets anywhere. The presets have been created by Chris Buck for the Copper.
Series Effects Loop
Sits between the preamp and power amp. Run your time-based effects here for maximum clarity.
Balanced Line Out and Headphone Out
Send a direct feed to a separate speaker simulator, front of house or wherever you like. Can be used with or without a speaker connected. The inbuilt headphone output makes silent practice quick and easy.
9V DC Power Output
Want to power some extra pedals and stick this on your board? We’ve included a 9V DC centre-negative output that will put out a maximum of 500mA. This is more than enough for the vast majority of drives, fuzzes and analogue delays and so on.
VRC – Valve Response Circuit
The idea behind this little piece of the circuit is to mimic what a “resonance” or “thump” (other adjectives are available!) control does in the power amp of a valve amp. So with the V.R.C (™) circuit you get closer to how a valve power section should feel but in a tiny amp you can throw in your backpack and still get up to 180 watts of power!
Powerful bass, middle and treble controls to shape your tone. These also have an effect on the gain character and drive levels – just like in any valve guitar amp.
TWO NOTES TECHNOLOGY
We have partnered with the incredibly talented folks at Two notes Audio Engineering to embed their incredible tech in our V4 Copper Guitar amp.
Straight out of the box you have access to six presets created by Victory artist Chris Buck. These have been specifically created by Chris for the V4 Copper guitar amp. There are ten Victory virtual cabinets included with the amp and a collection of microphones and positions to choose and build your own presets. All this can be accessed by plugging the V4 Copper guitar amp into your computer, via Torpedo Remote (download for free from the Two notes website) – this is also where you access the power amp modes, rooms, studio-grade EQ and audio enhancer. Register your device with Two notes to gain access to a further two Two notes DynIR cabs.
THE STORY OF THE V4 AMP VALVES!
The V4 amps have some interesting valves in them, to be specific 3 CV4014’s and 1 EC900. The CV4014’s were made in 1981 in the Mullard factory in England and then stored in a climate-controlled atmosphere deep underground,the depot was part of a cold-war nuclear bunker! They lay there until we decided to design some products from them!
The EC900 were made by E.I (Elektronska Industrija) in the former Yugoslavia under license from Phillips and Mullard, they were produced to an incredibly high standard so much so, we have included a 2-year valve warranty on the V4 amps.
