VX The Kraken
A 50-watt box of glorious gain for hard rock, metal, extended-range and progressive players
VX The Kraken packs a versatile 50-watt power section that you can use at home, in the studio or on the biggest stages
Our grey two-channel monster starts with classic British-inspired rhythm tones in Gain I mode. Gain II sears on into tight, aggressive American high-gain grind, perfect for progressive and extended-range players. One for the gain addicts, VX The Kraken pushes all the boundaries of what you can expect from a 'small' amp. It'll even travel as hand luggage when you fly.
