Victory make an amazing range of amps right here in the UK. The latest addition to this range, the Sheriff 22 Compact head is a great choice for gigging, studio work and going on tour.
This valve driven head gives you a classic vintage crunch with 2 independent volume channels, which you can switch between with a footswitch. Channel 1 is your standard Plexi sound meanwhile Channel 2 has the effect of a dimed old Plexi that jumped both channels for a surprising amount of gain. Guitar & Bass magazine gave the amp a mighty 9/10 rating which you can about by clicking here.
When using the regular speaker out this amplifier is running at the full 22w but you also have a separate output with less than 1w of power for use at home. This keeps all of the same amazing sound but lets you use it at any volume.
Here's what Victory have to say about this amp
Victory Amplification from the UK proudly announcesThe Sheriff, two new-for-2016 all-valve guitar amp heads. You can expect 1960s blues-rock tones through to ’70s hard rock… and way beyond.
The inspiration begins with classic ‘plexi’ sounds and feel for traditional rock styles, but goes further on to hot-rodded, heavy rock gain tones for which chief designer, Martin Kidd, is so well renowned.
