Victory V30 The Countess MKII Guitar Amplifier Head (40 Watts)

No longer available at zZounds
Versatile and compact, Victory's 2nd-gen V30 amp offers chiming cleans, heavy overdrive, and Crunch mode. Flip the Nomod switch for tighter low-end response.

The original V30 has very distinct clean and overdrive channels. There is massive headroom and clarity in the former, with a ton of heavy rocking overdrive in the latter. For the Victory V30 The Countess MKII guitar amplifier head, Victory Amps added an extra footswitchable crunch mode to the clean channel -- developed for V130 The Super Countess -- that brings a whole new palette of pushed clean, crunch and light overdrive tones to the party. Along with the 'Nomod' function, the V30 is now the ultimate ultra-compact all-rounder.

Two Channels, Three Modes

Footswitchable Clean and Overdrive channels offer chiming, high-headroom cleans through to huge, modern-rock-ready gain. For in-between, low- and mid-gained tones, V30MKII also has a footswitchable Crunch mode in the Clean channel.

New for V2: Crunch Mode

This footswitchable addition to the Clean channel brings an extra gain stage to take you into pushed and light overdrive sounds. It’s great for anything and everything where a little bit of drive is needed from blues to country to classic rock and more.

High & Low Power Modes

People are often astounded at the punchy, high-headroom clarity of the V30's 42 watts. It's loud enough for almost any stage, but if you want to explore lower volume and a different set of dynamics, you can switch to the read more low-power 7-watt mode.

Nomod Function

The new "Nomod" footswitchable low-end response function is a result of some users wanting a tighter feel for the V30, especially with heavier overdrive sounds. Here's what Guthrie Govan thinks of it: "I decided to use the 'new' mode all night. Sounded mighty fine! There's nothing wrong with the Mk1, of course, but those tweaks were most definitely worth making!"

External Bias Adjustment

No need to fiddle inside the amp when you change output valves. There is also a bias range switch on the chassis to suit either EL34 or 6L6 power valves, so when you've set that correctly, you then use this for the fine-tuning adjustment.

The perfect all round amp. Nice cleans, awesome crunch and beyond distortion. Effects loop super clear. A little delay and “viola” awesome sounds. Can get bedroom as well as small to medium gig volume no problem. Instant gratification. No BS. Humbucker/single coil works for all.
