Victory V4 Kraken Pedalboard Guitar Amplifier (180 Watts)

Get all the power of a Victory amp on your pedalboard! The Victory Kraken pedalboard amplifier delivers 180 watts of Class-D, solid-state power.
The Victory V4 The Kraken guitar amp partners a V4 Series all-valve preamp with a solid-state, 180-watt Class D power amp. Building on the success of the V4 The Duchess, the V4 Kraken guitar amp continues the ultra-compact size and huge tones by adding even more features. The V4 Kraken guitar amp features Two notes audio engineering Torpedo-embedded DynIR Virtual Cabinet technology making it so easy to go direct to FOH, headphones or your audio interface.

Features

Gain 1 & 2: The V4 Kraken Guitar amp has two channels. Gain 1 is a slightly looser more 'vintage' British-inspired gain sound. Gain 2 is tighter in the bass with a more cutting midrange character and, of course more drive.

Three-Band EQ: Powerful bass, middle and treble controls to shape your tone. These also have an effect on the gain character and drive levels just like in any valve guitar amp.

Reverb: Lush sounding digital reverb gives you ambience aplenty. Run it low for a subtle feeling of space, or max it out for washy, splashy hugeness! The reverb is foot-switchable using a TRS cable (sold separately).

Two Notes Technology: Two Notes Audio engineering Torpedo-embedded DynIR Virtual Cabinet technology is onboard the Kraken. The Cab Sim XLR makes is super easy to take you Victory virtual cabinets anywhere.

Series Effects Loop: Sits between the preamp and power amp. Run your time-based effects here for maximum clarity.

Balance Line Out: Send a direct feed to a separate read more speaker simulator, front of house or wherever you like. Can be used with or without a speaker connected.

9V DC Power Output: Want to power some extra pedals and stick this on your board? Vicotry included a 9V DC centre-negative output that will put out a maximum of 500mA. This is more than enough for the vast majority of drives, fuzzes and analogue delays and so on.

Speaker Cabs, Power & Impedance


Speaker choice is critical with V4 The Kraken Guitar Amp
V4 The Kraken can put out a staggering 180 watts at 4-ohms (through the Victory V112 Neo cabinet, for example). However, 4-ohm speaker cabs aren't exactly common, and nor are single speakers that can take 180 watts, so please proceed with caution with a 4-ohm load.

The nature of Class D, solid-state power sections such as this means that the amp's output is dependant on the speaker load. If you use a more common 8-ohm cab, output power drops to approximately 90 watts. 16-ohms gives you a still-very-healthy 45 watts.

The principle reason Victory went with the 180-watt output is because lower-powered solid-state devices can run out of volume and headroom very quickly once you get to 8- and 16-ohm loads.

No such problem here: there's plenty of power no matter what cab you use.

Victory Two Notes Virtual Cabinets

"What a versatile amp!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Received this on a Wed afternoon. Dropped it onto my pedalboard and gigged it with a cover band 4 hours on Friday and 4 hours on Sat in the hot sun followed by 2 hours on Sunday with a horn band. Used the IR output into the board which sounded great and was hassle free. For stage volume, I started with a 16 ohm cab which was a bit spongy. Switched to a Suhr 8 ohm 1 X 12 cab which was the perfect balance of punch and feel. I know this is marketed as a metal amp but channel 1 is pure rock and roll. (I like a little hair on my base tone.) I used my volume control to clean up when needed and I goosed it with a Prince of Tone pedal for solos. Delay in the loop and used the on-board reverb. So far I can not recommend this amp enough. It is build like a tank so I expect it to run for years. This is a purely unsolicited review motivated by my outstanding first experiences with this amp!
