Product Description

Victory's V4 'The Duchess' is a portable, lightweight guitar amp designed for players who seek American, boutique-style cleans and British-inspired break-up tones — with zero compromises on power or performance. Partnering a V4 Series all-valve preamp with an efficient 180-watt Class D power amp, the V4 Duchess delivers the coveted tube amp "feel" of Victory's full-sized 'The Duchess' amplifiers with amazing conviction!

Plug the Victory V4 Duchess amp straight into a conventional speaker cabinet, or go "cab-less" by making use of its built-in Two Notes 'DynIR Virtual Cabinet' tech to form the ultimate fly rig. With many additional modern features, including a series effects loop and onboard digital reverb, this innovative unit is extremely flexible — ideal for home hobbyists and studio players looking for a small yet powerful amp, or even professional touring musicians who need a dependable tone machine that can easily be mounted onto a pedalboard.

Key Features

  • All-Valve Preamp — Provides that all-important tube amp "feel" and response; comprising 3 genuine CV4014 valves and an EC900.
  • Footswitchable Tremolo — One of the oldest effects in the book! From slow and pulsing to fast and staccato, the V4 Duchess' built-in tremolo circuit complements clean sounds beautifully. Easily engage the tremolo via the footswitch on the front of the chassis, or use a remote footswitch (sold separately) if you want to place the V4 on your cabinet or desk.
  • 3-Band EQ — 'Bass', 'middle' and 'treble' controls enable precise tone-shaping; influencing the gain character and drive levels just like with any valve amp!
  • 180-Watt Class D Power Section — Delivers modern power and efficiency; all from a light 1.7-kilogram unit that can fit onto a pedalboard or in your backpack!
  • Valve Response Circuit (V.R.C.) — The V4's preamp is valve but the power section is Class D, so this circuit is designed to add the "sag" or "thump" you'd expect from the power stage of a traditional valve amp.
  • Speaker Output — Connect the Victory V4 to a regular guitar speaker cabinet, like a typical amp head. 180W at 4 ohms (approx. 90W at 8 ohms, 45W at 16 ohms).
  • Two Notes DynIR Technology — The Duchess V4 comes equipped with 6 switchable virtual cab presets created by Victory artist Peter "Danish Pete" Honoré! With these, you can opt to use the V4 without a speaker cab and just make use of its dedicated 'Cab Sim' XLR output or balanced line out (switchable) to achieve convincing "mic'd up" tones through a front-of-house PA system or into an interface for direct recording.
  • Headphone Output — Makes silent practice easy; sending inspiring analogue valve amp tones straight into your ears.
  • Speaker Load (With or Without!) — The unit doesn't always need to be connected to a guitar cab to be operated safely. This means that you can employ the V4 as a standalone amp; using its cab-emulated output(s) or headphone jack only.

Extra Appointments

  • Series Effects Loop — Allows you to run your favourite time-based and modulation pedals between the preamp and power amp stages for maximum clarity.
  • Built-In Digital Reverb — Embellish your guitar tones with lush ambience, from subtle to washed-out! The reverb is footswitchable using a TRS cable (sold separately).
  • Thermostatically-Controlled Fan — Will only switch on when things get too hot. You can manually turn the fan off via the switch on the rear of the unit if you want to.
  • 9V DC Power Output — This centre-negative, 500 mA output lets you power multiple stompboxes on your pedalboard from the V4 via a daisy chain; like overdrives, fuzzes and analogue delays, etc.

Two Notes Technology

Victory has partnered with Two Notes for their V4 Series, who are industry leaders when it comes to guitar speaker emulation IR tech! Out of the box, the Victory V4 Duchess is equipped with six custom presets made by our very own Peter "Danish Pete" Honoré (Andertons TV presenter and Victory artist). But altogether, the V4 comes with ten Victory virtual cabinets and a collection of microphones/positions for building your own unique sounds.

All of this can be accessed by plugging the V4 Duchess into your computer, via Two Notes' free 'Torpedo Remote' app where you can also find power amp modes, rooms, a studio-grade EQ and an audio enhancer for unparalleled tweakability. And if you register the device with Two Notes, you can gain access to a further two 'DynIR' cabs!


  • Preamp Valves: EC900 (x1), CV4014 (x3)
  • Power Output: 180W @ 4 ohms (approx. 90W @ 8 ohms, 45W @ 16 ohms)
  • Main Features: Aluminium chassis, digital reverb, remote switching for channels, series FX loop, balanced DI out, Two Notes embedded technology, 6 virtual cabinet presets & headphone output.

Mr Steve Beaubien15th Aug 2022

The Victory V4 'The Duchess' sound really good. No doubts. However, if your intention is to keep your pedalboard rig as quiet as possible for recording, it might not be the better choice. You'll probably have a fair amount of hiss and hum... even with your guitar still in you case. Lol.

The sound of this is just delicious. So full and creamy. Everything The Duchess represents but in a practical package that works perfectly for home, studio and live. All with Two Tones cab sim technology thrown in for free!
