Victory has unveiled the newest addition to its Compact Series of guitar amps, the VC35 The Copper.
The 35-watt, single-channel head packs a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL84 power valves into a pint-sized, highly-portable enclosure, with Victory promising “a plethora of timeless British-inspired pop, rock and roots tones”.
Front panel controls include master, tone, reverb, gain and three-band EQ (bass, middle, treble).
There’s also bass cut and mid boost switches for added tone sculpting and gain options, and a “preheat” toggle to shift the Copper from full power to seven watts/low power mode.
Flip the Copper around, meanwhile, and you have a back panel with a series effects loop for time-based stompboxes and external bias test points for testing and adjusting tubes.
True to its name, the VC35 The Copper is finished in a futuristic, and somehow also vintage-y, metallic copper.
An open-backed vertical 2x12 speaker cabinet (the V212-VB) boasting one Celestion G12M Greenback and one Celestion G12H Anniversary speaker and finished in brown vinyl is also available. A 1x12 version, the V112-VB, with one Celestion G12M Creamback speaker, is offered as well.
The VC35 The Copper is priced at $1,299. For more information head over to Victory Amps (opens in new tab).
