Description

Four valves in the front end, 180-watt power section, two channels, reverb and Two notes technology. Only 1.7kg / 3.75lbs – all the Kraken tone in a small box!

The V4 The Kraken guitar amp partners a V4 Series all-valve preamp with a solid-state, 180-watt Class D power amp. Building on the success of the V4 The Duchess, the V4 Kraken guitar amp continues the ultra-compact size and huge tones by adding even more features. The V4 Kraken guitar amp features Two notes audio engineering Torpedo-embedded DynIR Virtual Cabinet technology making it easy to take your cabinets anywhere!

Features

Gain 1 & 2

The V4 Kraken Guitar amp has two channels. Gain 1 is a slightly looser more ‘vintage’ British-inspired gain sound. Gain 2 is tighter in the bass with a more cutting midrange character and, of course more drive.

Three-Band EQ

Powerful bass, middle and treble controls to shape your tone. These also have an effect on the gain character and drive levels – just like in any valve guitar amp.

Reverb

Lush sounding digital reverb gives you ambience aplenty. Run it low for a subtle feeling of space, or max it out for washy, splashy hugeness! The reverb is foot-switchable using a TRS cable (sold separately).​

Two notes Technology

Two notes Audio engineering Torpedo-embedded DynIR Virtual Cabinet technology is onboard the Kraken. The Cab Sim XLR makes is super easy to take you Victory virtual cabinets anywhere.

Series Effects Loop

Sits between the preamp and power amp. Run your time-based effects here for maximum clarity.

Balanced Line Out

Send a direct feed to a separate speaker simulator, front of house or wherever you like. Can be used with or without a speaker connected.

9V DC Power Output

Want to power some extra pedals and stick this on your board? We’ve included a 9V DC centre-negative output that will put out a maximum of 500mA. This is more than enough for the vast majority of drives, fuzzes and analogue delays and so on.

A word from Martin Kidd, Victory's Chief Designer...

“After the success of the V4 Duchess Guitar amp, the Victory amps community kept asking ‘Where is a Kraken version?’

We wanted the V4 Kraken Guitar amp to have all the best bits of the range in a package that you could take with you everywhere!

​With the V4 Kraken, we wanted to give Kraken fans the best possible experience we could. The V4 Kraken Guitar amp has a V4 preamp front end, a 180 Watt Class D power section, digital reverb, an effects loop and three band EQ.

Also, we are excited to say we have teamed up with our friends at Two notes audio engineering to add their technology into the amp so you can carry your Virtual Cabinets with you and recall your six favourites from the 6 switch preset wheel. This makes the V4 Kraken Guitar amp versatile and perfect for use at home, on the road or in the studio.”

 

Two notes Technology

We have partnered with the incredibly talented folks at Two notes Audio Engineering to embed their incredible tech in our V4 Kraken Guitar amp.

Straight out of the box you have access to six presets created by Victory and Two notes artist (and Kraken collaborator) Rabea Massaad. These have been specifically created by Rabea for the V4 Kraken guitar amp. There are ten Victory virtual cabinets included with the amp, and these can be accessed by plugging the V4 Kraken guitar amp into your computer, via Torpedo Remote (download for free from the Two notes website) – this where you access the power amp modes, rooms, studio-grade EQ and audio enhancer.
