  • DESCRIPTION
The Victoria Electro King is based on the 15-watt 1957 Gibson GA-40 Les Paul Amplifier.

For collectors, the GA-40 amps made between 1956 and 1959 are the most desired for a couple reasons.  First, the two-tone finish, and secondly, they also utilize the preferred circuit and tube configuration for this model.

Part of what makes this amp so special is that back then Gibson was really trying to cut its own path, offering bold designs and impressive workmanship, and unwilling to follow the lead of any other maker, no matter how popular those “youngsters’” amps might be proving! Because of this, the GA-40’s circuit is very different from any of the classic tube-amp templates that are more familiar today.

Want something truly original?  Here you have it!

Both channels share a single tone control (called "Voicing"), but even that is very different than the simple, single-knob Tone controls in so many amps of the era. The Electro King’s Voicing control is located in the output stage of the amp, between the phase inverter and the output tubes, rather than immediately following the volume controls like most. It serves to subtly tweak the high-end content of the sound, following a “less is more” philosophy that leaves the Electro King sounding rich and full-throated at just about any setting.
