Victory amps has announced the V4 The Copper Preamp, a pedal based on its 2019 VC35 The Copper amp head.

Designed to channel the sound of late-'50s British-voiced amps with “chiming EL84 cleans, expressive mid-gain sweetness and rich classic-rock roar” – in other words, the Vox AC30 – the V4 The Copper Preamp can be used straight into the front of an amp or recording interface, or in conjunction with an amp's FX loop to bypass the amp's front end.
