You’ll never want to turn this thing off.
The Victoria Reverberato is our take on a classic Fender-style reverb tank with vibrato included. The reverb circuit is based on ’65 Blackface Twin reverb, while the vibrato circuit is derived from a ’63 Brownface Concert.
These things aren’t easy to make, they are easily the most labor-intensive product in the Victoria line. You’ll immediately see why once you plug one of these into your signal chain. The reverb can be subtle, filling out your tone or bringing it to an authentic surf-rock soaked ‘verb with a turn of the dial.
The harmonic vibrato circuit creates greasy, lush tones that will make you never want to turn this thing off.
F A Q ‘s
What kind of tubes can I run in the Regal and what power will they produce?
My amplifiers speaker sounds like it is breaking up, it sounds muddy and crunchy, not smooth or creamy. Chords do not ring harmonically clear. Do you have any suggestions on how I can improve this?
Tubes and speakers play a critical role in shaping the amps performance. Try a couple different brands of 12AX7 in the V1 position. Many guys will use an NOS tube here. The V1 is the most prominent in influencing the amps tone. Power tubes and speakers are obviously important too. Always use matched tubes in the power section. Speakers are more of a pain in the rear to swap out, but they will play a big role too. If you can, try swapping a couple different cabs with the chassis to see if it makes a difference.
What is the difference in tone and feel between the 6L6 and EL84 Victoriette amplifier?
The main difference is in the way the amp acts when driven into clipping. The EL-84 will compress sooner and impart a mid rangy sizzle while the 6L6 will have a grainier overdrive with more prominent lower mid content. The 6L6 is fuller, the EL-84 is more aggressive/creamy. The clean tones are very similar; all tubes will impart their own vibe, each 6L6 and EL-84 type will be individual, but generally the EL-84 will be brighter, with less headroom.
