Information:

Developed with Dorje frontman Rob Chappers Chapman, the Silverback is descended from Victory’s existing 50-watt The Earl model, and has two footswitchable channels that cover high-headroom clean, classic crunch and crushing overdrive tones. It also has in-built spring reverb and a parallel effects loop with FX mix control.

The Silverback delivers the ultimate blend of sounds and features from Rob’s favourite amplifiers to date. Rob has also come up with an ingenious removable magnetic ‘Knobguard’ that keeps settings safe when the amp is on stage, and also offers extra protection during transportation. There’s also a flip-up top grille to enable quick access for valve changes. The amp comes as standard with EL34 power valves, that can be swapped for 6L6es with an associated bias range switch. The Silverback delivers all the power, reliability and tonal flexibility for heavy rock and metal players, not least Chappers himself!

As far as sounds, the Silverback playys anything, everything everywhere and… Well, really, such flexible amp deserves much more than just “it sounds well”… The Clean channel goes from Fendery types clean, with much more headroom, plenty of definition and great dynamic. The push pull on the Clean’s gain pot allows to overdrive the Clean channel, and brings the first channel of the Silverback into Marshall’s sounds. A lot of gain, enough definition to play anything from rock’n’roll to Texas Blues and early ages Heavy Metal. Channel 2 is a completely different world, bringing way enough gain and fuzz to play any modern Metal or Shred styles. It goes from mid gain to very heavy gain, with plenty of definition and great harmonics as well. The Gain Boost on the second channel allows for more gain, and more mids, bringing the Lead channel into a sustainer sounding type of channel. Amazing !!!
