The VICTORY VX Kraken
Victory have built up a reputation for high quality, tone rich heads that deliver a truly stunning range of sounds.
The Kraken is a portable, 2 channel head with 2 gain channels, One British tones & the other on American sounds.
Two Gain Modes
The Kraken offers two high gain crunchy overdrive channels. If you play rock or metal you have to hear this amp.
Two Tube Types
This version of the Victory VX comes as standard with a set of 6L6 power amp tubes. You are not stuck with these for life though as you can easily change out the 6L6 tubes for EL34 at any time as long as you bias the amp after changing over.
50w is great for medium to larger size gigs. Victory have made the Kraken switchable down to 15w, 9w or even 2w for use at home, in the studio or on smaller stages.
Extended Range Friendly
If you play prog metal or djent using extended range guitars, the Kraken has a Bass Focus knob to ensure your low end is flabby.
With a flip of the Bass Focus knob you go from a tight and focused low end that works great with extra low tunings to a looser lower end perfect for grungy American metal tones.
