The Copper is British inspired chime and blues in our V4 power amp pedal! Four valves in the front end, 180-watt power section, two channels, reverb and Two notes technology. Only 1.7kg / 3.75lbs – all the Copper tone in a small box!
The V4 Copper amp delivers all-valve clean and overdrive, the footswitchable treble boost brings in a gain boost and creates creamy valve overdrive and sustain. It’s the amp for that classic British jangle!
All-valve preamp sound
The V4 Copper has an all-valve preamp section with 1 x EC900 and 3 x CV4014 valves running at high plate voltage, this is paired with a solid state power section.
Designed to be like a gain boost, this treble boost circuit helps to push the V4’s front end to create creamy valve overdrive and sustain. The non treble boost side goes from clean through to slightly pushed, both sides have their own volumes controls.
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 Audio engineering Torpedo-embedded DynIR Virtual Cabinet technology is onboard the Copper. The Cab Sim XLR makes is super easy to take you Victory virtual cabinets anywhere. The presets have been created by Chris Buck for the Copper.
Sits between the preamp and power amp. Run your time-based effects here for maximum clarity.
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.
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.
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!
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.
