Bag End loudspeakers began In 1976 in a small shop by people dedicated to the pursuit of making high quality loudspeaker systems. Over the decades Bag End has employed the very best construction techniques and innovative acoustical designs into their products. The ground breaking introductions of Time-Align and ELF Technologies into sound reinforcement and studio monitor loudspeakers in the 1980’s was followed by Minima One self-powered systems, the highly unique E-Trap electronic bass trap and the Neptune series of ultra performance high power systems. Over the decades Bag End has been a leader in providing uniquely good sounding products and extraordinary service to our customers world wide.
In 1993, I set out to faithfully recreate the crown jewels among the many classic amplifiers developed by Leo Fender. The tweed amps of the late 50’s defined the sound of rock and blues on vinyl and on stage, but they had also become increasingly scarce, and well beyond the reach of most working musicians.Victoria Amplifier is recognized for having succeeded in recapturing the classic sound, design, and American craftsmanship embodied in the tweed line, while offering players a wide range of subtle and sometimes whimsical variations on a theme. Victoria circuits have always been completely faithful to the originals, using the correct capacitors, resistors, transformers, pots, and eyelet boards. Each pine cabinet is crafted in the precise manner of those built in the ’50s, and covered in lacquered cotton tweed that is still woven today by the original manufacturer.
