What We Think

I can't describe it any better than Victoria - It really does fall perfectly between a blackface deluxe and a super reverb amp.

My personal observations are as follows- Creamy and clean tone with a good amount of clean headroom. The natural breakup starts a little over half way on the volume, depending on the guitars pickup output. I personally love a good 2x12 combo. It's not nearly as heavy as your good 'ol twin that you hate lugging around. Yet it provides plenty of even low end for the two 12" Legend speakers. And while Mark stayed away from vibrato and reverb for many years, he really hit the nail on the head with offering vintage quality tone from both circuits. I barely ever turn off these features. It's ultimate ear candy!

hand-wired reliability and the purest tone around. that's what you get from Victoria amps. Call or Email me to talk more about the Victorilux

Manufacturer's Description from Victoria

 

In 2001, I finally relented, and we began to build amps with reverb and tremolo. The response to the introduction of the Victoriette and Victorilux by our customers and reviewers has been overwhelming, but not merely because we know how to do reverb and trem. Granted, we researched many of the classic circuits, lifting some of Leo's genius from the brown and blackface era amps. But I also indulged in my long-standing appreciation for the EL84 power tube, which I felt had not been given proper attention by companies bent on simply knocking off a Vox. The Victoriette possesses the warmth and clean headroom of a blackface Deluxe, with the character, charm, and dynamic response of a Class A British amp, but it is a knockoff of nothing. You gotta hear it to appreciate it's unique voice, which can be shaped by a wide variety of speaker configurations, including a 2x10 or 1x12 (my per-sonal favorite). Players become instantly enamored with this amp. It will make you smile.

The Victorilux features the same basic circuit with a quad of EL84's, or alternatively, dual 6L6's with the option of a 3x10, 2x12, or 1x15 speaker configuration. This amp perfectly falls in between a blackface Deluxe Reverb and a Super Reverb. You get a higher threshold of clean headroom than a Deluxe, and more creamy smooth breakup at far lower decibel levels than a Super. We think this is a very good thing, and players seem to agree. Both of these amps display a remarkable ability to clean up with just a tick of the volume control on the guitar, and the circuit loves every type of pickup we've ever thrown at it.

Three cabinet configurations; 3x10 (HxWxD, Inches) 23.5 x 24 x 10.5; 2x12 (HxWxD, Inches) 20.5 x 24.5 x 11; 1x15 (HxWxD, Inches) 20.5 x 24.5 x 11

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.
