RK50 Richie Kotzen
Straight-up rock with reverb & tremolo
Richie Kotzen Signature Compact Series Head:
50 watts of straight-up rock with reverb & tremolo
This collaboration with Richie Kotzen is a rekindling of a long-standing friendship between the celebrated American rocker and Victory Amplification chief designer, Martin Kidd. There's a huge range of gain available from the single channel, including a footswitchable boost function. A single tone pot keeps it simple, while onboard reverb and tremolo give you ambience for days.
We are so proud to be behind such a brilliant and unique artist.
Richie loves the simplicity of a single-channel amp where he can ride the transition from clean to crunch to lead gain from the volume pot of his guitar.
We've chosen a clean sounding digital reverb for the Compact Series head. Somewhere between a plate and room-style ’verb, it gives you tons of ambience.
…with Footswitchable Boost
Just like stepping on your favourite full-range boost pedal, except this is another valve gain stage to take you into singing sustain.
One of the earliest guitar effects, tremolo can add anything from a subtle throb to full-on metronomic staccato rhythm. Footswitchable, of course.
Speaker damping works in the power section. Set it to 'off' for increased bass response and cabinet/speaker resonance. There will also be more presence/high-end with speaker damping off.
Series Effects Loop
The RK50 has a series effects loop should you want to run delays, reverbs or whatever else you like after the preamp section.
