In 2001, Victoria finally relented, and began to build amps with reverb and tremolo. The response to the introduction of the Victoriette and Victorilux by their customers and reviewers has been overwhelming, but not merely because they know how to do reverb and trem. Granted, they researched many of the classic cir-cuits, lifting some of Leo's genius from the brown and blackface era amps. But they also indulged in their long-standing appreciation for the EL84 power tube, which they felt had not been given proper attention by companies bent onsimply knocking off a Vox. The Victorilux features the same basic circuit as a Victoriette but with a quad of EL84's, or alternatively, dual 6L6's in a 3x10 cabinet. This amp perfectly falls in between a blackface Deluxe Reverb and a Super Reverb. You get a higher threshold of clean headroom than a Deluxe, and more creamy smooth breakup at far lower decibel levels than a Super. We think this is a very good thing, and players seem to agree. Both of these amps display a remarkable ability to clean up with just a tick of the volume control on the gui-tar, and the circuit loves every type of pickupwe've ever thrown at it.
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.
