VICTORY AMPLIFICATION RD1 Rob Chapman Signature Head


Small but mighty: Chappers' marvellous mini head is fit for home, studio and stage. One channel, no messing…

This ultra compact, single-channel head is a superb sounding rock machine, designed for real, all-valve tone wherever you go. Despite the tiny box, the dual EL84, fixed-bias power section delivers up to 28 watts in full power mode, and just 2 watts in low power. And it's only 263mm wide – smaller than an A4 sheet of paper!

Chappers puts it best: "I wanted something that was affordable, doesn't compromise on tone and is made in England. It's a straight-ahead, giggable, no-nonsense valve amplifier: clean to scream at the turn of a knob."

Contour increases bass and decreases mids when turned clockwise (and vice versa). The deep switch increases low frequency response in the power amp.

The RD1's series effects loop has a mix control so you can hear as much or as little of your loop effects as you like.

The fixed-bias power section delivers up to 28 watts in high power mode and just 2 watts in low power mode.
