What We Think

Condition: Used, Good

A beautiful, compact tweed-style amp from Victoria! The beauty in this amp is the simplicity; with only a volume knob to twist, this amp can cover clean tones all the way up to truly gnarly thanks to its exquisitely simple design. Fantastic! 

Manufacturer's Description from Victoria

The 518 is our tribute to the 5F1 Champ, and after 40 years, this little gem continues to delight players. Aside from being an outstanding practice and studio amp, the Victoria 518 is a perfect choice for club dates when paired with an efficient external speaker cabinet. Did you know that the original '50's Champ has been a mainstay of many of the Stones recorded tracks for decades? Have you heard of Layla? Eric is Derek, y'all! The Victoria 518 is our most affordable amplifier, but like all Victoria amps, it is still built with the finest Allen Bradley resistors and Victoria capacitors.

About Manufacturer

In 1993, I set out to faithfully recreate the crown jewels among the many classic amplifiers developed by Leo Fender. The tweed amps of the late 50's defined the sound of rock and blues on vinyl and on stage, but they had also become increasingly scarce, and well beyond the reach of most working musicians.
