Video demo: The new Victory V4 Duchess is a valve head… at your feet!

We're big fans of Victory's V4 preamp pedals, but its new Duchess takes that idea further – its a power amp too. A fully-fledged head in pedal form.

We first heard it at NAMM when Victory artist and our 2019 blues poll (opens in new tab) winner Chris Buck gave us a quick tour (opens in new tab) of its features. 

Guitarist magazine has reviewed it in its latest issue on sale here (opens in new tab), and its demoed here for them by Richard Barrett.
