Victory VX The Kraken MKII 50W Lunchbox Valve Amp Head Overview

VX The Kraken MKII takes all the features and tones from the original Kraken and adds multiple new features. It’s a versatile 50-watt compact head that you can use at home, in the studio or on the biggest stages. Our grey two-channel monster starts with classic British-inspired rhythm tones in Gain I mode. Gain II sears on into tight, aggressive American high-gain grind, perfect for progressive and extended-range players. One for the gain addicts, VX The Kraken pushes all the boundaries of what you can expect from a ‘small’ amp. It’ll even travel as hand luggage when you fly.

Clean, Gain I & Gain II

Taking the original Kraken’s Gain I (British inspired) and Gain II (US inspired) channel design, we have added a Clean mode. This adds extra versatility and can be engaged by footswitch or the front panel.

Simple Powerful EQ

Plenty of tone-sculpting potential, plus a presence control that works in the power section to set the overall bite just how you like it.

Master Volume Design

There are two master volume controls, one for each channel and these are footswitchable. The master volume assign switch can switch the volume controls to be set globally across channels or to their originally gain I/gain II channel.

Series Effects Loop

A series effects loop is available for effects fans. It’s completely out of the circuit when bypassed.

Presence Switch

New to the MKII is a presence control. Push the presence up and you are able to get ‘sizzle’ and higher frequency sounds. If you prefer the original Kraken controls, set the presence at 0 and you’re back to the MKI tone. On the back panel, there is a presence switch that changes the brightness of the presence control. Pushing it in will result in a slightly brighter tone.

Gain I Balance Control

Clean and Gain I modes have the same gain control which can create volume differences when switching between. We have added a pot on the back to fine tune the levels between these two modes to add extra flexibility.

Bass Focus Switch

This is much more than a bass EQ. It works in the power section of the amp, offering either a tighter, more focussed bottom end, or conversely more loose and resonant depending on your needs and tastes.
