The 518 is our tribute to the 5F1 Champ after 40 years, this little gem continues to delight players. Aside from being an outstanding practice and studio amp, the is a perfect choice for club dates when paired with an efficient external speaker cabinet. Did you know that the Victoria 518 has been a mainstay of many of the Stones recorded tracks for decades? Have you heard of Layla? Eric is Derek, ya’ll! Victoria 518 is our most affordable amplifier, but like all Victoria amps, it is still built with the finest Allen Bradley resistors and Victoria capacitors. Also available with a 12" speaker in a larger cabinet.
Victoria Amplifier is recognized for having succeeded in recapturing the classic sound, design, and American craftsmanship embodied in the tweed line, while offering players a wide range of subtle and sometimes whimsical variations on a theme. Victoria circuits have always been completely faithful to the originals, using the correct capacitors, resistors, transformers, pots, and eyelet boards. Each pine cabinet is crafted in the precise manner of those built in the '50s, and covered in lacquered cotton tweed that is still woven today by the original manufacturer. The results speak for themselves, and Victoria amplifiers continue to be acknowledged by players and critics alike as clearly superior in construction, durability, and tone among small-production, custom amplifiers built today at any price.
