Victory's V4 'The Kraken' compact guitar amp is an exceptional choice for modern rock and metal players seeking a small, lightweight high-gain amplifier with zero compromises on tone, power or performance.
Partnering a V4 Series all-valve preamp with a solid-state, 180-watt Class D power amp — the ultra-portable, 2-channel V4 'The Kraken' delivers the huge saturated tones and addictive tube amp feel of Victory's popular VX Kraken and Super Kraken amps with amazing conviction.
It’s perfect for home and studio players looking for an elegant solution on a small cab or desktop, or even for touring musicians who need a great-sounding, dependable amplifier that can easily be mounted onto a pedalboard!
- Powerful 180-watt guitar amp with a convenient, compact chassis.
- All-valve preamp provides an authentic tube amp feel and response.
- Two footswitchable channels with controllable gain and master knobs. Gain 1 has less gain than the monstrous distortion of Gain 2.
- Powerful 3-band EQ enables precise tone-shaping; affecting the gain character and drive levels just like with any valve guitar amp!
- Built-in digital reverb lets you add lush ambience and depth to your guitar tones.
- Series effects loop allows you to seamlessly use your favourite time-based and modulation pedals between the preamp and power amp stages for maximum clarity.
- Equipped with class-leading Two Notes DynIR Cab Sim Technology.
- Comes with 10 Victory virtual cabinets. There are 6 programmable presets created by Rabea Massaad that are switchable from the V4 Kraken (these can be edited and changed via Torpedo Remote USB).
- Balanced line-out sends a feed to a front-of-house PA system for a punchy direct sound. Cab sim output works with Two Notes virtual cabinets.
- Can be used with or without a speaker load (it doesn't need to always be connected to a guitar cab to operate safely).
- Designed and built in the UK.
Victory Chief Designer, Martin Kidd:
“After the success of the V4 Duchess guitar amp, the Victory community kept asking ‘Where is a Kraken version?’ So here it is! With the V4 Kraken guitar amp, we wanted it to have all the best bits of the range — in a package that you could take with you everywhere!”
“So not only does the V4 Kraken guitar amp have a V4 all-valve preamp front-end, a 180-watt Class D power section, digital reverb, an effects loop and three-band EQ, but we are also excited to announce that we have teamed up with our friends at Two Notes Audio Engineering — so you can carry your Virtual Cabinets with you and recall your six favourites from the preset switch."
"Victory artist Rabea Massaad has created these presets, so straight out of the box you have six great cabinet sounds. We think this makes the V4 Kraken guitar amp the perfect all-in-one amplifier that you can take anywhere!”
