Victory Amplifiers has just rolled out their new V1 pedals designed in collaboration with Adrian Thorpe MBE. “The idea of a collaboration was something that made a good deal of sense, as we (Victory) were to an extent, venturing into the unknown,” said Martin Kidd, Chief Designer at Victory. “At Victory, we have the knowhow, of course; however, being able to make use of Adrian’s experience and the various subtleties of his design ethic, enabled us to better appeal to the player who likes a clean amp platform; getting their various sounds from pedals.”
The pedals are:
- The V1 Jack pedal emulates the gain sounds of the V30 Jack Amp, which was designed in conjunction with Guthrie Govan.
- Inspired by the VC35 Copper, the V1 Copper emulates the sound a quartet of EL84 output valves in the British tradition.
- The V1 Sheriff is based on the Sheriff 22 and 44 and aims to give you a wide variety of tones from 60’s British blues rock through to 80’s metal sounds.
- The V1 Duchess on our Duchess range of amplifiers, this pedal is simple but versatile. It has all the sparkle and warmth you would expect from a Duchess amp!
- The V1 Kraken takes its inspiration from the VX Kraken, designed to be articulate and crisp, the V1 Kraken is perfect for high gain, extended range and low tuned players.
