Designed as a versatile, all valve pedal preamp, this compact powerhouse delivers the renowned Victory Amps Sheriff tone in a pedalboard friendly format. Whether you're at home, in the studio, or performing live, the V4 The Sheriff offers unparalleled functionality and portability.

The Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp isn't your typical overdrive. With its two channel design, it provides a full spectrum of sound. Channel one effortlessly transitions from edge of breakup to heavily driven classic rock tones, perfect for those seeking that vintage vibe. Channel two takes you into modded ‘plexihigh gain territory, offering aggressive midrange and powerful output.

Equipped with 1 x EC900 and 3 x CV4014 valves running at high plate voltage, the Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp stands out as the first pedal format preamp to feature four valves and a pure all valve signal path. This configuration ensures that every note you play is enriched with authentic valve driven warmth and clarity, making your performance stand out.

One of the standout features of the Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp is its adaptability. Use it directly in the front end of your amplifier or seamlessly integrate it within your amp’s effects loop to bypass the front end entirely, giving your setup a fresh, dynamic sound. For recording, simply connect to an interface and enjoy high quality tones directly in your digital workstation.

The V4 Sheriff’s TRS jack allows for remote switching, giving you control over on/off and channel switching either through a two button latching footswitch or a modern programmable switching unit. This flexibility means you can keep the pedal off the floor and safe from potential damage, perfect for those who prefer a tidy setup.

The Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp is built for the road. Its folded steel chassis and protective kick bar ensure it can withstand the rigors of touring. The Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp also features powerful bass, middle, and treble controls that not only shape your tone but also influence the gain and drive levels, mimicking the behaviour of a traditional valve amplifier.

For those concerned with pedalboard placement, the Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp should be treated as the front end of your amp. Place your regular drive pedals before its input, and keep your reverb and delay pedals in the loop for the best results. The Bright switch optimises the Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp for whatever you’re plugging into, ensuring you always get the best sound, regardless of your setup. 

Whether you’re performing fly dates, recording, or just jamming at home, the Victory Amps V4 The Sheriff preamp is the portable guitar amplifier that brings the high quality tones of a full amp rig in a compact and highly functional package. Experiment with different setups and unleash a world of sonic possibilities.

Valve Story

The CV4014 valves in the pedal were manufactured in 1981 at Mullard factory, Mitcham, Surrey, England for the British Ministry of Defence. They were stored in a climate controlled underground facility at Royal Navy Supply Depot, Spring Quarry, Wiltshire, part of a cold war nuclear bunker complex. The EC900 valve, used in the first stage (and second in The Copper), is a low noise triode made by E.I. (Elektronska Industrija) in former Yugoslavia under Philips & Mullard license, utilising Philips equipment acquired post their European closure. These valves are exceptionally reliable, hence covered under the extended two year warranty.
