As an Victory Amplifier dealer, we know first hand just how difficult it is to pick a favorite. Ironically, this is just the dilemma the players in the above video are facing. The V30 “The Countess” and V40 “The Dutchess” are two exceptional amps, at a compact size, with different goals. The V40 will get you a ’60s British voicing the more you crank the gain, while the V30 is a two-channel amp, providing a wealth of pleasing modern-gain in the overdrive channel. Watch the video above to hear these amps played in a variety of styles and modes, and see just what all of the rage is about!

The V30

A huge range of clean, crunch and lead tones in a two-channel, all-valve design, developed with the help of Guthrie Govan as his ‘flying amp’. The power section offers four configurations from 2 to 30 watts, giving you the ultimate package of portability and flexibility. The Victory V30 Countess is the little amp with a huge voice to cover all your playing needs.

The V40

This single-channel, all-valve design is all about maximum tone with  minimum confusion, housed in the same light and portable chassis as our award-winning V30 The Countess. Blues/roots-inspired players will find all the elusive, vintage pushed clean and drive sounds they love. Voice 1 offers mid-’60-type American warm clean tones. Voice II is subtly stronger and more ’50s in character. As you push the gain and engage the Mid-Kick function, the V40 takes on a more ’60s British voice for timeless blues-rock tones. All the time the V40 responds to your guitar, responds to you: it’s one for the ‘feel’ players.
