Two Channels of Classic British Overdrive!- The V4 Sheriff has two channels, the first being the Vintage channel based on the 60’s style blues rock, whereas the hot-rodded channel is all high gain from the hair metal era of the 80’s.
Victory Amplification V4 The Sheriff Guitar Amp
Maker: Victory Amplification
Model: V4 The Sheriff Amp
The Sheriff V4 amp is classic rock tones in a small, portable pedal amp. Four valves in the front end, 180-watt power section, two channels, reverb and Two notes technology. Only 1.7kg / 3.75lbs – all the Sheriff tone in a small box!
With two channels the V4 Sheriff amp can go from 60’s blues through to hot-rodded hair metal tones. Gain 1 has less gain and can be used for edge of breakup sounds through to classic rock. Gain 2 is full-on modded ‘plexi’ high gain sounds.
Three-Band EQ- Powerful bass, middle and treble controls to shape your tone. These also have an effect on the gain character and drive levels – just like in any valve guitar amp.
Reverb- Lush sounding digital reverb gives you ambience aplenty. Run it low for a subtle feeling of space, or max it out for washy, splashy hugeness! The reverb is foot-switchable using a TRS cable (sold separately).
Two notes Technology- Two notes Audio engineering Torpedo-embedded DynIR Virtual Cabinet technology is onboard the Sheriff. The Cab Sim XLR makes is super easy to take you Victory virtual cabinets anywhere. The presets have been created by Graham Coxon for the Sheriff.
Series Effects Loop- Sits between the preamp and power amp. Run your time-based effects here for maximum clarity.
Balanced Line Out and Headphone Out- Send a direct feed to a separate speaker simulator, front of house or wherever you like. Can be used with or without a speaker connected. The inbuilt headphone output makes silent practice quick and easy.
9V DC Power Output- Want to power some extra pedals and stick this on your board? We’ve included a 9V DC centre-negative output that will put out a maximum of 500mA. This is more than enough for the vast majority of drives, fuzzes and analogue delays and so on.
VRC – Valve Response Circuit- The idea behind this little piece of the circuit is to mimic what a “resonance” or “thump” (other adjectives are available!) control does in the power amp of a valve amp. So with the V.R.C (™) circuit you get closer to how a valve power section should feel but in a tiny amp you can throw in your backpack and still get up to 180 watts of power!
TWO NOTES TECHNOLOGY- We have partnered with the incredibly talented folks at Two notes Audio Engineering to embed their incredible tech in our V4 Sheriff Guitar amp.
Straight out of the box you have access to six presets created by Victory artist Graham Coxon. These have been specifically created by Graham for the V4 Sheriff guitar amp. There are ten Victory virtual cabinets included with the amp and a collection of microphones and positions to choose and build your own presets. All this can be accessed by plugging the V4 Sheriff guitar amp into your computer, via Torpedo Remote (download for free from the Two notes website) – this is also where you access the power amp modes, rooms, studio-grade EQ and audio enhancer. Register your device with Two notes to gain access to a further two Two notes DynIR cabs.
THE STORY OF THE V4 AMP VALVES!
The V4 amps have some interesting valves in them, to be specific 3 CV4014’s and 1 EC900. The CV4014’s were made in 1981 in the Mullard factory in England and then stored in a climate-controlled atmosphere deep underground,the depot was part of a cold-war nuclear bunker! They lay there until we decided to design some products from them!
The EC900 were made by E.I (Elektronska Industrija) in the former Yugoslavia under license from Phillips and Mullard, they were produced to an incredibly high standard so much so, we have included a 2-year valve warranty on the V4 amps.
