Victory VX100 The Super Kraken Amplifier Head (100 Watts)

Release The Super Kraken! The Victory VX100 amp head gives you British and American tones in a sexy boutique chassis with bass boost and a low-wattage mode.
The Victory VX100 The Super Kraken Amplifier Head has morphed into an even more powerful beast via 100 massive watts of 6L6 power. You still get the Brit-inspired Gain I channel. You still get the colossal smack of Gain II's US grind -- but now there's a whole new footswitchable clean mode, plus a footswitchable Preamp Focus function to add a little juice and cut to any and all modes. There's also a preset Bass Focus option in the power section, footswitchable FX loop, assignable/ footswitchable dual master volumes, plus a useful 30-watt low-power mode for when you don't need to blow the roof off. And, of course, MIDI switching capability.

Features:

- 1 x Dual Latching Footswitch for GAIN I/II and MASTER I/II
- 1 x Dual Latching Footswitch for Preamp Bass Focus and Crunch
- Slip cover included

"Love it"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve been playing this for a few weeks and love it more and more, every time I play it. I’m not really sure what to compare it to, but I’ll try. It has the punchiness of a 6505 with the chewiness of a Friedman BE (I own all three). It’s a very articulate amp and will amplify any sloppy playing. I’m using a Helix to switch channels. The midi programming is so easy it’s almost comical. The only thing I was a bit disappointed with was the gain 1 channel. I thought it would function as a three channel amp as the channel 1 OD can be toggled off/on. Since they share a gain knob, that isn’t practical. In other words, this amp will offer a brilliant clean tone and an amazing channel 2 gain tone or it’ll give you two amazing gain tones. You can’t have all three without turning knobs. I’m very impressed with the sound J get at low volume. Of course this can get loud, very loud. It also has a very nice tone at low low volumes. When turned down, it doesn’t get fizzy or sound like a cheap radio as most amps tend to do. Overall, I’m impressed with the sound and functionality of this amp. 2K is a lot of money, but compared to other amps in this price range, it’s well worth it.
