NAMM 2018 - Victory Amplifiers
Before the show has even begun Victory have launched a pair of gorgeous looking amps with changes and mods we know you have been asking about for some time.
Yes the VX100 Super Kraken and V30 MKII are here!
The Super Kraken
This is a 100w behemoth of an amplifier with two channels, three modes and all the high gain chug you could ever need. Built from the incredibly popular VX Kraken this new 100w version is a tour ready version with all the power you will ever need.
Apart from now having over twice the power this new version of the Kraken has a clean channel on top of the two gain stages from before. MIDI switching, power downscaling to 30w and a new preamp focus mode are also now built in to the amp.
The V30 was the amplifier that made Victory such a household name in the amp world. Now it is back with a few tweaks to make it better than ever before.
These changes include a new footswitchable crunch mode on the clean channel lifted straight from the V130 and a ‘NOMOD’ switch. This switch changes the bass response for better feel and less mud when playing with high gain sounds.
Victory have soft launched a range of three multi-channel valve preamp pedals that emulate sound of some of their favourite amps. This includes their V30 Countess, The Kraken, and The Sheriff.
These pedals are best suited going into the effects loop of your amp and running them via a four cable method meaning use the pedal itself you can switch between the front end of your amp and the preamp.
There is no word on when these will be available as they are still fine tuning everything but when they are available this a great way of adding a Victory amp to your rig for a fraction of the price of the full lunchbox head.
