Victory and Thorpy FX collaborate to make the ultimate Victory 'amp in a box' stompbox based on the VC35 Copper. Expect Classic Rock and Blues!
Classic British Rock tone as soon as you engage the Copper, the V1 pedal is stompbox that takes all the elements of the VC35 Copper and squeezes it into a pedal.
The V1 series is a collaboration between Victory and award winning pedal builder Adrian Thorpe MBE. Designed and built in Britain, the Copper is a true collaboration between two British companies.
The V1 may be small but it has many different sounds packed into it, push the gain up and you are into 70’s Classic British Rock, then dial it back for 60’s British Blues Rock. The 3 band EQ can be used to thicken and cut the sound, it's the perfect addition to your pedalboard.
“The idea of a collaboration was something that made a good deal of sense, as we (Victory) were to an extent, venturing into the unknown…
At Victory, we have the knowhow, of course; however, being able to make use of Adrian’s (Thorpy’s) experience and the various subtleties of his design ethic, enabled us to better appeal to the player who likes a clean amp platform; getting their various sounds from pedals.”
“We were keen to make the V1 pedals sound as close to the full-bore valve amps as possible but working with Martin and the team meant that we had to be even more precise to do their amp designs justice in solid state pedal form.
It took a long time and many times we had to go back to the drawing board. Despite this, maintaining an uncompromising nature of what the Victory sound is, means that pedal fiends worldwide can enjoy these pedals, no matter what their flavour preferences.
I’m proud to say we worked on these V1 pedals.”
