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.

Single Channel…

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.

Digital Reverb

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.
Tremolo

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

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.

RK50 Signature Combo

All the features of the RK50 head in a 1x12 combo plus spring reverb

 
The RK50 can be very buttery and creamy, but if you crank the tone knob you’ll also get some tight fat bass with cutting high mids and highs.
