Description & Specs

Victoria Sovereign Head

After years of development, Victoria Amplifier Co is proud to announce their new
Sovereign amplifier. The Sovereign is Victoriaʼs first head only design, and itʼs
engineered to be the most soulful versatile JTM45 style amp available. Controls are:


With the gain control set at minimum, the amp behaves like a non master volume
JTM45 style amplifier. Turn the volume up and it gets progressively louder and more
aggressive. Increasing the gain control gradually drives the EF86 input tube into clipping which produces a rich harmonically complex distorted performance. The EF86 is a very dynamic small signal pentode that acts like a small EL34 when driven. This results in an unusually big, complex tone that actually sounds like an EL34 being pushed--in the preamp! The Sovereignsʼ design eliminates the microphonic tendencies associated with typical high gain EF86 circuits.

The resonance control acts to fine tune the bass response to optimize the Sovereigns
use with either open or closed back speaker cabinets. A half power switch is standard,
and it effectively cuts the power from 50W to 25W without altering the basic tone and
character of the amp. There is also a tuneable post-tone stack effects loop with
adjustable send and return controls. The adjustable send and return allows for the fine
tuning of any effect inserted into the loop. With nothing plugged in, the loop may be
used for additional gain boost and tone shaping. It may also be used as a power amp
slave in or preamp out. Switchable impedance 4-8-16Ω.

The Sovereign is shipped with a pair of Mullard EL34 power tubes but it can be
operated with 6L6 and KT66 as well. The bias is adjustable and is easily accessible
inside the chassis.

Tube compliment: 1 X GZ34; 2 X EL34; 1 X 12AT7; 2 X 12AX7; 1 X EF86

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
